The LAL team will be opening mail for quite a while yet, based on the update I got this morning:
"As of Saturday morning, we had logged about 15,500 entries. But we still had lots of unopened mail from the weekend. We received 20 mail bins on Fri-Sat. Today, we got our first "irk" as well as a "skid," in total about 35 more mail bins. And keep in mind that we have had weather problems in the Midwest and that is delaying the shipments. So we fully expect to get another 30 or more bins between now and this Friday. Our goal for this week, is just to sort, open, count. Next week, we log, and then the judging begins."
