Memorial University CS Games Singles Winter 2011 Results

The Winter 2011 CS Singles Programming Competition took place at Memorial University last night. Fourteen students registered for their opportunity to try their algorithmic skills on three problems developed by the Mun Programming Competition committee.
The night started off to a unique challenge as the power to the light system was shutdown. I'm not sure if any of the students really noticed this however as they focused in on solving their problems.
After thirty minutes the power was restored, and the competition got into full swing. The lab room was uncharacteristically quiet for the entire evening, with the students barely breaking for a slice of pizza, a cookie or a drink. Two hours later the regulation competition time was over and we were able to announce our winners. Our games sponsors then took center stage to present our top placements with their prize packages.

The third place prize was presented by IDBlue's Steven Taylor to Ken Collingwood.

The second place prize was presented by Pathfinder/Nomadica's Eric Davidson to Robert Hamilton.
Left to Right: Jon Anstey, Robert Robere.
And finally the first place prize was presented by FuseSource's Jon Anstey to Robert Robere.

I'd like to thank all the students, volunteers, sponsors, and the games committee again for making these CS games possible. I hope to see everyone again in three weeks time when we have the pairs competition.
