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.
