...mmm
Strange... if I remember Contest Rules, final standings base upon the number of problems solved by each team. How did your team take 2nd position? Would you mind contacting the judges? :)

By the way, I partecipated three times to regional contest. I've really had a good time. I suggest this experience to every student :)

    The way it was explained in the Imprint (UW newspaper) is that points get deducted every time an incorrect solution is submitted. So, UW's team submitted wrong answers (several times, if I remember) and lost enough points to fall be St. Petersburg.

talexb admires the shimmering pool after an enjoyable hour-long All Hands meeting spent listening with one ear and reading Perlmonks with the other .. ear.
[talexb]: Used all my votes during that meeting .. been a while since I've done that. Now, back to work. Good localtime, monks!
[Corion]: talexb: You enjoyed the All Hands meeting in the pool?!
[Corion]: I understand "surfing" in the pool ;)
[talexb]: Corion I admired the pool .. I wasn't .. soaking in it. ;)
[talexb]: Plus, I've been awy from PM for about three weeks .. needed a bit of catch-up time.
