The city of Dehradun drew teams from Roorkee and other locations, over 500 students took part at the lovely DIT campus. The prelim was not too difficult as teams scored well. The final six were:
UPES :Vishnu B and Prateek Awasthi
IIT Roorkee :Renju K. and Utkarsh R.
DIT University :Shubham and Saksham G.
Indian Institute of Remote Sensing :Anurag K. and Vaibhav C.
IIT Roorkee :Vineet and Ciby
IIT Roorkee :Aayush J. and Hemant K.
Champions, UPES - Vishnu B and Prateek Awasthi
The final saw the UPES duo get off to a quick start and then play carefully but with great consistency to stay ahead of the rest right through the quiz. They went about in a fashion that no team really got close to challenge them.
The battle for the second place was a tight one with teams realising they did not have a chance to chase down UPES. It went down to the final few questions where the IIT teams battled it amongst themselves. It all went down to a tie breaker that Aayush and Hemanth won.
The guest of honour, was Prof. (Colonel), Sishir Kumar, Director DIT University, who advised the teams to prepare well for the future and gave away the prizes.
