Fairly low turnout (in comparison of campus quiz) about 50 odd teams with regulars like Triton and Thermax visiting.

My bad luck was not able to participate due to lack of partner!

The regulars from Triton made a good lead in first two rounds which ensured there victory regardless of some good catch-up by other teams
