An early preview of 2017 18 & over 4.5 Nationals - Current top teams in the country

Continuing my previews of the 18 & over division after doing the 3.5 men and women and 4.0 men and women, and 3.0 men and women, now the 4.5 men and women.

As usual, I'll be using my Estimated Dynamic NTRP Ratings to calculate the average dynamic rating for the top-8 players on the teams' rosters.  And I'll show the section/district/flight to let you know where the teams are from, but omit the team name to keep it a little mysterious.  Contact me if you are wanting more details on your team or what the actual teams are, or if you are interested in your own report, or a team or sub-flight report.

First, the top-30 and ties men's teams.
