Will it be a regular event...or it is just for the June month??

If it is some new regular contest, shouldn't there be a blog post about it?

Some explanations will possibly be provided soon

I think it is permanent, If you open 'All contests' it shows the name as LTIME01, which implies that there are more in future.

I guess it is for the school kids. Recently CodeChef started Codechef for Schools ( ),
It may be contest to promote algorithmic online judge coding among the school children who have interest in coding, so that they get a feel of online judges (things like not printing INPUT: enter the number ... and OUTPUT:the ans is .... ) and get acquainted with online judges.
This is a very great initiative taken up by CodeChef to promote coding and talent in school kids.
And I seriously miss those lunch breaks we had in school. :)
This is just a guess.
Looking forward to the contest.

Hi everyone, it seems squal has already unveiled the mystery. Here's all the details that you need to know about "Lunch Time"

(26 Jun '13, 19:24) admin ♦♦0★

@admin How would you distinguish between high school students and others? I don't see any options in the user profile.

(26 Jun '13, 19:31) balajiganapath ♦♦6★

@balajiganapath there is a section for "highest degree earned" and also "expected graduation year" these should be enough to tell if one is a school student or not, shouldn't it? :)

(26 Jun '13, 19:35) sunny_patel2★

If you're wondering on how the students will be identified, let us tell you that we will be identifying students based on the institutions on their profiles.

my guess admin is going to regular organize weekly contest during lunch time..:D ..To compete with other websites like codeforces, topcoder may be one of the reason..:)

I don't think it is an external event because codechef does not have countdowns for the external events. Most probably it will be a rated short event.

It may be a Lunch Time contest .. but ..( 11am - 2pm ), it looks like it's a deliberate attempt to delay that sunday's lunch of all the contestants here .

Why is it so? It could have been set for ( 10 am - 1pm ) or ( 12pm - 3pm ).. Any idea guys ?

The codechef guys have their lunch after 2 pm :)

(25 Jun '13, 07:21) balajiganapath ♦♦6★

12am @sumanth232 you sure?

(25 Jun '13, 10:34) subhamg3★

Maybe Lunch Time is a virtual contest -- unrated.

Can't wait for admins' announcement :D
