Wow! Over 13,100 teams in the US and Canada registered for the 2012 SENIOR SOLUTIONS season. That’s over a 15% increase from the FOOD FACTOR(TM) season. We expect another several thousand teams around the world on top of that. That’s approximately 170,000 kids from about 70 countries that will experience FLL this season.
A huge thank you to all of our partners and committed volunteers. This couldn’t happen without you! With team registration exceeding our anticipated goal of 12,600 teams, FLL Operational Partners are working to ensure teams have the opportunity to attend an official FLL event in the region. Operational Partners are working with event locations and organizers to coordinate and confirm details for these additional events in their regions and we ask all teams for their patience and understanding if it takes a bit of time to get these details to teams.
