About these stats

Prizes:

The top scorer was Dave Hayes of Rutgers A, who used his first pick of "books I found on the discount rack at the U-Store" to acquire R. W. Griffiths' The Reign of King Henry VI. (Not surprising, given that Dave submitted a bonus about Henry VI.) Gabe Lyon of Carleton, the number two scorer, took home The Archaeology of Britain: A Guide from the Upper Paleolithic to the Industrial Revolution. Rounding out the top five scorers were Adam Fine of Maryland, Jeff Bennett of Chicago, and Shane Ewert of Carleton. The victorious Carleton team then selected from the remaining books, choosing David Attenborough's The Life of Birds, Medieval Welsh Poems: An Anthology, Kea, Bird of Paradox: The Evolution and Behavior of a New Zealand Parrot, and War Correspondents of the Anglo-Zulu War. Jeff Bennett, captain of second-place Chicago, was stuck with The Military Memoirs of General John Pope as a fitting reward for his tournament-high 12 negs.

Acknowledgments:

I'd like to thank Charlie Steinhice, whose packets from the Moon Pie Classic made this tournament possible. (Those interested in purchasing the complete set of Moon Pie/Buzzerfest questions should contact Charlie.) Other thanks go out to Seth Teitler from Berkeley for providing a freelance packet, and to everyone who helped me edit questions and write the finals packets, to wit: Brian Beck, Chris Frankel, Philip Hall, David Isaacson, Larissa Kelly, Brad Klein, Ben Malkevitch, George Perez, Dave Sachs, Barbara Slote, Howesiang Tan, Tom Ventimiglia, Will Wong, Ray Yang, and tournament director Lenny Kostovetsky.

Statistics for Buzzerfest V were using an adaptation of Jason Weill's Livestat 1.1 by Ben Malkevitch, our webmaster. This adaptation will ultimately allow full web-based data entry and configuration, so that no Unix or Perl knowledge is necessary for using this wonderful program. Please contact Ben about ongoing development.

Thanks again and we hope to see you next spring at Buzzerfest VI.
