This is very exciting. Ever since I heard the wcs's USA reps on NPR in 5th grade, it has been my dream to enter. While I still consider myself a bit of a novice, how often do you get a chance like this? Prior to recent years prelims were on the east coast making it harder for us weasties to enter.
Really I plan in competing to fulfill my childhood dream and if something more comes out if it, great.
