It's good of you to let us know what was happening. I don't know why there's such a problem for so many registering for the new board. I would write to this board's, moderator, Betty Powell, firstname.lastname@example.org. I hope she can shed some light; she's a very very nice person!!
I hope you make it into the study. Not that I could make it back to Philly from here (24 hr. straight drive-thru in a VW Rabbit); are they taking people who have had DBS? Just curious?
Hope to see you on the new board soon!!
