  Report

This year the contest moved to Auckland University of Technology's new Learning Centre, and all 12 teams competed in the same room. As usual we had a healthy contingent of teams from University of Auckland and University of Waikato, including the New Zealand Programming Contest winners. The hosts were also represented.

Our first correct submission came in after 11 minutes. It was good to see that every team managed to solve at least 2 problems. Unfortunately, the live scoreboard meant they could all see the Otago team running away from them to claim the New Zealand place in the finals! Our top team managed 5 solutions, a creditable effort.

We had a good turn out of helpers from the competing universities. Thanks to Michael Dinneen and Radu Nicolescu from Auckland, and Bill Rogers from Waikato who did the judging, to Gordon Grimsey, Anne Philpott, Nural Sarkar and Bernard Fong from AUT who helped with the contest, to Raewyn Boersen who presented the awards, and to Paul Fallon, Brian Green and Aterea Brown who provided technical help in setting up the contest and on the day.

PC2 worked well and made contest administration much easier. We were able to make presentations to our site winners soon after the contest.
