Memorial University CS Games Team (triples) Fall 2011 Results

The Fall 2011 CS Team Programming Competition took place last Friday night at Memorial University.  Six teams (18 students), took part - trying their skills against the algorithmic conundrums the programming competition committee prepared as their set of three problems (see link for problems & solutions).
After two and half hours of competition we were able to draw the games to a close and announce our top three placements.
In third place, Team C: Megan O'Conner, Ryan Brushett, and Andrew Hobbs.

In second place, Team D: Mark Stacey, Gerry Hall, and Ryan Russell.

Finally in first place, Team A: Robert Robere, Melissa Reid, and Ken Collingwood.

Please join me in wishing them best luck as they head to St. Francis Xavier University to enter the preliminary round of the Atlantic Provinces Council on the Sciences programming competition. If they place in the top three teams at SFX then they will advance to the Northeast North America Regional Competition of the 2010-2011 ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest sponsored by IBM.

I'd like to thank all the students, volunteers, and the games committee again for making these CS games possible. I hope to see everyone again for the Fall 2011 Mun CS Games Singles competition on November 4th.
