After a 12 hour long drive, including a few visits to roadside power outlets to recharge the laptop batteries that were necessary for hours of playing Unreal Tournament over a custom built VAN (Van Area Network), 7 UGA CS students, 6 competitors and Maggie Bradley, their coach (chauffeur), arrived to Melbourne, FL to participate in the 2005 ACM Southeast Regional Programming Contest.
Their division (Division 1) included 45 teams.
A. J. Beamon, Alex Crane, and George Vulov (Team 1) took 9th place, answering 5 of the 10 given questions.
Cody Boisclair, Cole Sherer, and Brandon Treadway (Team 2) took 17th place, answering 3 of the 10 questions.
The high difficulty of this year's questions and the quality of the teams present make these rankings awesome.
The full rankings and the pictures will be posted on the UGA-ACM website soon.
