As of September 5, 2013, there are 200+ registered players for the 2013 NCL Fall Season! Registration is open through September 30, 2013. The sooner you register, the more access you get to the virtual lab exercises via the NCL-sanctioned Cyber Gymnasiums, and the more prepared you will be for the games.
