News: The Winners of the Holiday QuizDec 27 2011 · 0 comments · Events, News
It was not easy, was it? Indeed some questions were positively fiendish.
Nobody managed a perfect 100% score but even so, several people got close. Here are the results:
1st place with 98%: Rick VanderKam
2nd (joint) place: Aaron Lepold and Dejan Vucinic with 94% each
3rd (joint) place: Heather Paunet (89.5%), Andy Werback (88%) and Scott Thomas (87%)
Why so many winners? Some of the questions were set up poorly and folks did not get credited by the software. For example, the alcohol concentration question did not accept “.04” as a valid answer. So when we found good answers that a “normal” human would accept, we adjusted the score.
But at the same time, we did not want to eliminate the people who would otherwise have been in the prizes, so we are giving away extra t-shirts.
The highest of the instructors was Sergey Sinyachkin who scored 89%. Pretty good, especially as he was in frozen Russia at the time. Maybe if we add an incentive for our CFIs more would attempt next time?
Well done everyone, and we will post the answers soon.
