FIRST, Does anyone know how much bigger the national competition will be? What is going to be added that wasn’t there last year?
Second, what will Dean’s $230,000 contribution go towards? Anything in particular… or just everything in general?
-Thanks, Keith

well, it is supposed to be almost double in size from the 10,000 people there last year, and there will be something like an additional 75 teams or so
