Dear blueboard, 

The Department of Information Systems and Computer Science is in the process 
of preparing its Programming Varsity teams for the Association of Computing 
Machinery International Collegiate Programming Competition (ACM ICPC).  You 
may recall that the ACM ICPC is a two-tiered contest: Teams compete at the 
regional level for a berth at the world finals.  

Upon consultation with our team coaches, we have elected to join the regional 
competition in Kuala Lumpur (October 30 to November 2) and Bangkok (November 
13 to 16). Our delegation will be composed of the following team members, alternate, 
and coaches: 


David Martin Cuajunco (2Ma-AMF) 

Kyle Stephen Sy (3CS) 

Jose Enrico Tiongson (2CS) 


Alternate: Hadrian Jules Ang (3CS) 

Coach for Kuala Lumpur: John Boaz Lee 

Coach for Bangkok: Jessica Sugay  


We estimate the cost of our participation (airfare, hotels, meals, local transportation, 
and contest fees) at Php260,000. 

To raise the needed funds, we write to you, our DISCS alumnus, to ask for your 
support.  The Ateneo has a long history of producing some of the best computer 
scientists and competitive programmers in the country.  Just last September 
6, David, Kyle, and Rico, the same team we are sending to Bangkok and Kuala 
Lumpur, won the ACM ICPC National Programming Competition held at the Ateneo 
de Naga. They solved all ten (10) contest problems in two (2) hours, a good 
three (3) hours before the end of the contest. Unfortunately, National competition 
standings do not qualify us for the World Finals. 

We invite you to extend your assistance to us so that we may stand shoulder-to-shoulder 
with similarly excellent competitive programming teams from other countries.  
We would be most grateful for any amount you choose to donate for this purpose.  
If you have any questions or clarifications, please feel free to contact our 
team manager, Ma. Mercedes T. Rodrigo at mrodrigo at ateneo.edu or 426-6071.  
She will be happy to respond to any inquiries.  We thank you in advance for 
your support. 


Kind regards, 

Marlene Mana De Leon, Ph.D.
