In the IB fro offline finals it is written that

The permitted items which may be taken into the competition hall and used are: Pens, pencils, erasers, rulers,
instruction booklets (optionally annotated with notes regarding instructions and preparation notes) and blank
paper.


Does that means i can bring any solved example types not present in IB (with how to solve tricks for that particular sudoku) along with the IB ?

The finale of the inaugural Sudoku Mahabharat was indeed superb. We really enjoyed the first four rounds of solving - each of them tested a different aspect of solving - and the fifth round was a good eye-check up test. There was healthy competition between the top 5 and anyone could have won on their day. In the end, the recreational activities were very enjoyable as well. And it was a perfect opportunity to meet a lot of old timers and some new faces, apart from Deb, Rohan and Prasanna, of course.

A lot of effort must have gone into the organization of the finals - both the puzzle part and the logistics part. Thanks to all the organizers of the event. The prizes on offer were well thought of. And the venue was also perfect for the occasion. The organization was flawless. We stuck to the round timelines and scores were available almost real time.

I can say that those who could not make it to the finals missed a great event.

Congrats to all the winners and participants.
Wanted to add Sumit's name here. He took care of the goody bag (containing the exam board, notepad with blank sudoku grids, band, badge, pen/pencil, tag) and the trophies for top 3. All the stuff were specially designed for Sudoku Mahabharat. Unfortunately he could not make it to the finals.
Thanks also to Akash who carried all the stuff from Kolkata.

I can say that those who could not make it to the finals missed a great event.
Not only they missed a great event, they also helped to increase the expenses for the organizers significantly.

Out of the top 50, around 8 players had immediately responded that they won't be able to attend, and the rest 42 players responded that they will be attending the event. All the arrangements were done based on those numbers. However, exactly one-third dropped out from the event. There were of course some genuine reasons for dropping out, but we also heard reasons like "oh, I didn't realize that today is 10th".
It is important to respect the commitments since nobody was forced to make a commitment. I was personally very sad to see players from Bangalore missing out without even letting us know till the last moment.

I think the volunteers also deserve mention. The three volunteers were Deb's friend Himanshu, my mom (Usha) and her friend, Swati. We're thankful to all three of them for their help in checking the competition booklets and the other odds and ends they helped with over the course of the event.

Thanks for the detailed write up Rajesh. Did you miss the Introduction segment ? It was not planned to be, but I think it was good fun too.
