If you are interested in going you should contact Linda Kohn as soon as you have checked your calendar! The team selection will take place in the spring, probably at one of the NRE events as well as by petition. Performance at past events and rankings as well as the trials will be considered.
Please let Linda know of your interest by emailing wornerkohn at gmail dot com.
