Thank you Abigail!
I know it's your job, but it never hurts anybody to vocally appreciate the vast amount of work on this particular task.

I agree with Scott!  Thanks Abbey!!!  You rock!

I've been looking forward to this post for a while so I could compare the official list to my own unofficial list, gathered on facebook and other social media channels.

FYI to all - In case y'all haven't seen it yet, I have created a spreadsheet of who's on which team again this year.  It should be available to anyone with this link:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AtfjpBlV9ukgdFBrekZ2S2tMTmRCajl0QUZTVDZfN0E#gid=0

Let me know if anyone has questions or concerns.

Slight change to Team Pittsburgh; Alan Olifson in unable to commit to Charlotte, so Valkyrie will be stepping up as our 4th member. Rhetorical Artz is currently slated to move in as team alternate.

Thanks Jesse
I've already emailed Abigail to see if it's too late to register. From my understanding of what she wrote, i think that only applys to teams that have paid and don't see their names. I'm afraid that we might have missed the date because it was not posted on the PSI main website as it was in the pass. Additionally, I also was not sent an email with the important dates in it for all the slam masters to have as was done in the past, but i should have been more proactive in tracking down someone to get the dates instead of assuming that said email was not sent at all. Again thank you for your help.

Hi Abigail - Could you please make sure that the team from SF is referred to as "SF BayArea Unified" in subsequent lists please? I know the certification we're registered under is "San Francisco's The City Slam", so the confusion is understandable. Thanks.

Yes. I will make that change. That's what it said on the application so that's why it's there, but I'm making the change now.

I know we go through this almost every year, but my team address, as well as my own, is in ATLANTA. It's even in our name, ATLANTA ART AMOK.Please correct it. Thank you.
