Rise of the Resistance is getting back on track today.  Rise started calling boarding groups at 8:30 AM, and ran continuously until boarding group 68 at 12:30 PM.  There was a delay of around 45 minutes before calling boarding group 69, but that seems to be the only issue so far today. As I write this, Rise of the Resistance is at boarding group 125 and should make it past boarding group 160 with time to spare.
