Programming Competition 1997
Congratulations to the winning undergraduate team, X! Team X consisted of:
These three did really well solving one 150 point question, two 50 point
questions and two 15 point questions. They submitted two incorrect
solutions (this accounts for the 0.7 point difference). The next
competition for this team will be the New Zealand competition in 4 weeks
time. I can't wait to see how they perform.
The only third year team to enter was AC. AC's team members were
Elaine Chiu, Frances Kuo and James Dunwoody. This was a great effort!
The highest scoring fourth year team was IPH. IPH consisted of Peter
Naulls, Geoffrey Khoo and Kevin Richards. Congratulations, another great

Team score timeline
Here are the progressive results for each of the teams. The horizontal scale is the number of minutes from the start of
the competition, the vertical scale is the score.
Grads vs. Staff
The big contest of the day was between the Saurs and Greypower. The Saurs
team were the three Ph.D. students Len Trigg, Richard Littin and David
McWha. Three lecturers composed the Greypower team; Bill Rogers, Mark
Utting and Tony McGregor.
Who was going to win? No one seemed game to make a prediction :-)
After five grueling hours of sweat and tears, with the lead changing
six times, the Saurs were finally victorious. Well done to both teams!
