On your first question:

Have them start with ones they know (think?) they can do, then add as they go along. For a rookie team, trying to do all may be daunting, but may be possible. But I can promise you that for a long time it'll be "Nothing ever works..." -- hence the "start with the easy ones".

Some flow may also evolve naturally -- "Hey, we weren't doing the XYZ mission, but we can grab the flying squirrel on the way back from delivering the atomic wombat" or whatever. Let 'em figure it out!

Subject: [VADCFLL-L] how many missions to go for?

Hello
We are a rookie team trying to figure out a good number of the missions to tackle. About how many missions do most teams go for? All of them? Half? We have a tight timeline so I want to challenge the kids as much as possible without stressing them out. This is their first year doing a team. 

Also, where do we register and pay for our team to join the VA DC FLL? We are registered and paid for nationally but on the VA DC FLL site I can only find links to register nationally. Where do you pay the $125 to register regionally?

Thank you!
