Elims cutoff: 13

 Around 15 quizzers showed up for this annual college quiz; a turnout lower than expected. The elims were not very tough though quite a few participants were put off by questions about things in vogue in the mid 2000s.
The finals contained some "gentle full-tosses" (as some like to call it) which would have been more in place in the elims. Overall the questions were good with very few going unanswered. It was a close quiz for the most part till Aniketh extended his lead to 20 points around the last 5 questions.
We hope Aniketh will come up with a great set of questions next year for the quiz that will bear his name.
