Some kind of contest.

Hey QBasic.com readers, I got an email in my inbox that I think you all might be interested in. Here it is:


We are glad to announce new contest on http://acm.sgu.ru/.

Izhevsk State Technical University Contest 3 will take place on March 22, 2009 11:00 (Moscow Time).

Also we want to remind you that Petr, Michael_Levin and VitalyGoldstein Contest (aka Petr Mitrichev Contest 4) will take place on March 15, 2009 11:00 (Moscow Time).
