I flew in this event within its first 2 hours-it was busy and well managed.  I took a look 4 hours later and it is still going strong-83 arrivals in the queue and a full load of controllers still "personning" the scopes.  Great job by all involved.  I tried leaving a note in the ZDC Feedback option but it wanted a specific controller and all who participated are worthy of mention.

We appreciate all the cooperation and patience the pilots gave us tonight. It was crazy busy, and ZDC thanks all the surrounding ARTCCs that came up to support us. Thanks for a fun Saturday night!
