Yes I totally agree that volunteers would be first to go. I put in my application as soon as I got the e-mail on the 2nd of February. I like doing competitions mostly because of the feedback I get.
I believe 1st round moved to a checklist scoresheet format last year, so you feedback may be limited.  This, by all means, should not keep you from entering however.

Good luck!
Kept me from entering! Figured I could enter two comps for the price of the NHC AND get better scoresheets.

So how many usually make it through the first round?

1st-2nd-3rd place
28 categories
12 regions

3x28x12 = 1008 potential entries.

In rare cases, it is possible for less than 3 entries in the category score 30 or higher.  30 is the minimum score for an entry to pass through to the 2nd round.
