And I thought it was for lack of a formula.  :-)

Actual day of event + 1 day = Day late

Actually, 73 of them were hams and 12 had APRS on board. Of those, 5 had a 
path of RELAY,WIDE5-5 and were ignored because all of the digis and IGates 
had dropped support for RELAY. Another 4 used the same path, but they typed 
the path in while hitting a speed bump and mis-spelled it as REELAY,WIDE5-5.

The remaining 3 had actually adopted either WIDE2-2 or WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1 but 
going over the same speed bump that caused the typos in the path, a power 
connector for the radio became dislodged.
