Starting at 12:01 midnight on Saturday, May 12th, from midnight to midnight and all kinds of hours in between, birders will be swarming the state of New Jersey looking and listening for as many bird species as possible. The Finish Line festivities will take place in the Grand Ballroom at the Grand Hotel 1045 Beach Avenue, Cape May, 08204 at 6:00 pm, and last until midnight. While the WSB phone app allows teams to submit their final totals "virtually," we hope teams will come and visit, and get a sneak peak at what the final results may be!  There will be food and soft drinks, and of course, we want to take a picture of your team after your long day - for the record!

The Awards Brunch will take place on Sunday, May 13th also at the Grand Hotel Grand Ballroom, with doors opening and hot breakfast at 9:00 am, and the Awards Ceremony beginning promptly at 10:00 am.
