The contest will run from February 23th, 2015 at 3:00PM EST to February 24th, 11:59PM EST, within which you will have 3 hours to complete the contest.

You are just an ordinary programmer having a decent day while enjoying your early morning cup of tea. Suddenly, you notice two strange guys running around on the street in panic. You decide to go over to them and ask what's up. Congratulations, you are now a part of their squad. After a lot of discussion, you find out that these guys are going after the one and only cheesecake recipe, and since you love cheesecake, you agree to help them out!

This contest will feature 6 easy to moderate problems. This contest is intended for anyone who likes a decent challenge, knows a few algorithms, or has nothing else to do. Tasks are modeled after the CCC and DMOPC contest problems.

The problem setters are BMP, msa789, PaulOlteanu, kobortor, and tomtaub.

Before the contest date, you may wish to check out the tips and help pages.

    Due to Family Day, the contest has been postponed by exactly one week.

    Guys, some schools might have classes that continue past 3PM. Most DMOPC contests have started at 3:30PM, and while that is a pain in the butt for Thornhill people, other schools might not be able to start at 3PM. Consider moving it a little bit later?

        Could you make this a start-when-you-want contest for the whole day? I need to go to a Science Olympics meeting after school Monday :3
