The Big Sit! 2016 Registered Circles

The circles listed on this page are officially registered for the Big Sit! 2016. If you have registered your circle via the online user interface it may take up to one day for your circle's name to appear on this list. (Our site caches pages to optimize the load time, so that explains the delay). If one day has passed and your team name has not yet appeared, you may get in touch with us to verify your registration.
