Is an email upgrade in the works? Just curious... Almost all my emails bounce.

I can vouch for the Security Innovation CMD+CTRL CTF as we've had it at the past two LASCON conferences and attendees love it.  SI does it for free and it's a very well done CTF.  Here's Ed's message:

The CTF is 100% cloud-based so there’s no infrastructure required. Members just need to show up with a laptop (or similar) to play. The only thing the chapter facility needs to provide is internet access. There is a real-time scoreboard you can display if you wish and points are scored automatically (no need to manually assess “flags.”) It’s a pretty easy turn-key operation.
