I'm having 10 people, including us. There will be sides (rice or potatoes, asparagus) and an appetizer (fish or salad) plus dessert. It is a silver tip roast from the forequarter, which I will be searing and then braising. Do I have enough?

It should be enough. I usually calculate 1/2 pound per person before cooking unless you are cooking for Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble.
68 oz - 10% shrinkage = 61.2 oz. So 6 oz per person. Should be ok, with plentiful sides. I usually figure a bit over 4 oz pp entree but sometimes people want seconds.......

Well played. You deserve a cookie.
