Announcing the 5th Annual Codeslinger Shootout!

On April 21, 2010 you are invited to test your fast thinking and
programming skills at the GatorLUG meeting. You could win the coveted
title of "Fastest Codeslinger of 2010", a cool mug proclaiming your
victory, and one or more Amazon gift cards.

Main Street Softworks has generously offered to sponsor the tournament
again this year.

This year there will be two prizes. The first prize will be awarded to
the first person who submits a program that calculates the correct
result to the problem. The second prize will be awarded to the first
person who submits a program written in C that calculates the correct
result to the problem. It is possible for one person to win both prizes.

First prize - A $500 gift card from Amazon.com

Second prize - A $200 gift card from Amazon.com

Please register for the tournament by Friday, April 16, 2010 so that we
can plan to have enough space and electrical plug-ins for the contestants.
