June is the time for the ACM ICPC Indonesia National Contest, just like last year. This year I participated with the 'kurniady' as the team name again (it's becoming a habit :lol: ), with Fiona Liausvia and Purnama, as a Binus International team. There was another team from Binus International as well but sadly they did not make it past preliminary.

Continue to Day 10
The eight day is quite uneventful. The hotel's shuttle's driver was sick so we were sent to the airport with two taxi cabs paid by the hotel. The check in process was normal as well, and since the flight is quite empty, we were allocated one complete row for just the 6 of us. The Singapore Airlines' Boeing 777 has 3+3+3 configuration, so we have three empty seats inbetween, which is nice.
Being quite exhausted from the previous day, I woke up a bit late at around 8-9am. After having breakfast in the hotel, we went out (except Timotius, who chose to stay in the hotel) and bought the day pass for public transport on the nearby shop (as suggested by Anastasia). After asking the locals, we boarded the bus to downtown Vancouver (it's a kind of electric bus attached to the wire along the road.

The sixth day of the week was obviously the most unfortunate one. The day started with a long queue for checkout (seems that many teams depart at 6am), after which we boarded the Brewster bus operating for Banff Airporter. At 6am, the weather was quite clear (although cloudy) in Banff, but as we came nearer to Calgary, the snow started.

The big day started with the usual breakfast, after which we have ourselves ready in the front of the contest hall. Spectators (coaches, RcD, and other guests) are to enter the room and be seated first (at the respective spectator seats). Before entering, as usual the teams are offered some pictures with the trophy (and Mr. Poucher too).
