Thanks to Binghamton for a great job hosting. Excellent facilities for 
WUDC.  We had 58 teams but the big snowstorm cut it down to 44, but 
hooray for that brave lot.

Congratulations to the University of Vermont team of Paul Gross and 
Isaac Loeb for winning the final round and to all who competed.
