Maybe the frustration stemmed from an assumption that they were the  
only team experiencing problems.  I think if teams realized that the a  
score in the low to mid 100's would have been competitive and a  score  
below 100 should still warrant participation we would have had higher  
enrollment numbers.

I do recall a couple of threads on the listerve that were urging teams  
to participate regardless of their scores.   Maybe if we only  
published the top 50% for the scores on the gym wall teams wouldn't  
feel so intimidated.
