Update by Sowmya -3rd December 2016 – We had a tremendous response to the contest. A total of 68 clues were set by 19 setters. 10 of these were shortlisted by our host Vinod Raman. While the identity of setters were not revealed to him, we co-ordinated with him to ensure that clues that were shortlisted were by unique setters, based on his request.

The clues that made to the final shortlist were

Setter Clue
SSv Avtaar Clumsy one groans after dropping partners’ dressing (7)
Aashwina Mouli Free range eggs outside for Herb ( 7 )
Ramki Krishnan Herb, say, raced around, wearing glasses (7)
Heidi Schroeder Leaves old, contrary ass (7)
Chatur Vasi King’s daughter, wearing spectacles, leaves (7)
Sowmya Ramkumar Leaves, for eg. a noisy gathering (7)
Mona Sogal Love shredded orange as pizza topper? (7)
Kaustav Datta Peculiar looking orange egg plant (7)
Brian Dungate Small English organ playing Opus no. 1- something to savour!
Kishore Rao Spice girl from The Exorcist is wearing spectacles (7)

Its interesting to note that our prolific setter SSv had three clues and Aashwina and Kaustav had 2 clues that made it to the initial shortlists.

33 respondents cast a total of 185 votes (including 20 votes that were cast for clues that didn’t make it to the shortlist). Here are the results of our poll..

The votes were spread pretty evenly amongst the clues and we had a three way tie with three clues  (by SSv, Mona and Kaustav) getting 20 votes each.

The deciding vote was cast by our host Vinod Raman and we are happy to announce that SSv Avtaar’s clue “Clumsy one groans after dropping partners’ dressing” has emerged the winner of this tight contest.

Congrats SSv. Your clue is now in our WCWC Hall of Fame. Regulars may note that this is the seventh time that SSv gets into the WCWC Hall of Fame:)

A big thanks to Vinod as well as all those who participated and voted.

    Last night, I was worrying about how we were going to handle the voting process as there were such a plethora of clues. I am so happy that you have asked our host to shortlist ten clues. This is a great idea and better than elsewhere where we had to deal with as many clues as there (though most clues would be good). The facilitators are doing a great job! At 6 a.m. I find the full clue is up (today I didn’t have a waking moment in the night in Selaiyur where climate seems to be sleep-inducing except for noise from trainee airplanes in the mornings from the IAF unit). I appreciate your classifying the clues. Now it’s a great task for this old man to remember which clues are his. The next time I will be more careful and note down the clues that I send. This time There is ts the danger of my voting for my own clues. LOL.

    Are the clues listed in the order received?
    Why do some rows have yellow background?
    And why are some in grey?
    Ah, I figured out.
    All clues having similar def are grouped.
    That means the clues are not in the order received but have undergone some treatment.
