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
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.
