Update by Aashwina – 12th March 2017 – A bit of a subdued response this time because of caps on the number of clues and a tough word to clue ( I think ).

Voting was subdued too ( I guess many were watching results of other voting!) – 16 of our members took time to vote which means that we have a close contest again.

Thanks to all of you who participated and submitted entries. You can view the entries received in this contest here.

Here are the results of our contest..

Setter Clue Votes
Supriya Mithal Appendix ruptured ,toxin seen 10
Paddy Craven Demolished No.Sixteen for extra room 2
Amrita Majumdar Addition of one, six perhaps divided by X 5
Guruswamy Natraj After turning sixteen, there’s no turning back 6
Ashit Hegde Add-on player has two perfect scores , partners get a zero 3
Chaturvasi Head of Estates gets two numbers for Mumbai suburb’s additional building 0
Ganesh Nayak 10:10? Uproar about going over into extra time 9
Mona Sogal Leg Room 4
Ramki Krishnan Next criminal in row, about to get additional time 7
Viresh Ratnakar Expert throwing up for each point in tweet from The West Wing 2

Ramki’s extension for the criminal picked up 7 points for the bronze. Ganesh Nayak’s uproar means he landed 9 points ( not 10 !) and Supriya’s infected appendix got 10 points !

This clue is now in our 1ACCWC Hall of Fame. Congrats to Supriya, Ganesh and Ramki!

A big thank you to our star setters and all members who participated and voted .
