Hello, Codeforces!

In the spring 2016 the company CROC together with Codeforces will hold the third Russian Open programming championship «CROC – 2016». The goal of this project, as before, — encourage of the most talented and innovative young specialists and stimulate interest to the information technology.

As usual CROC company pays great attention to social projects, associated with the development of the IT-industry, to promotion of IT-professions and to the increasing interest in modern technology. CROC has rich experience of cooperation with universities, the organization of courses, seminars and competitions for pupils, students and experienced professionals.

The registration to the championship will be open from March, 1st to March, 16. Anyone, regardless of nationality, place of residence and level of education, can be a participant. The official language of the competition is Russian. Championship participants will take part in two main rounds: elimination round, which will take place in early March, and the final. There will be 50 strongest participants competing in Moscow on April, 15. CROC will cover transport costs in the amount of no more than 10000 rubles (it is about 135 USD). All finalists should confirm their will and ability to visit Moscow to take part in the Final before March 25. CROC will not be able to help you with visa (if it needed), so our primary target audience is Russian participants and participants from some ex-USSR countries. But two years ago rng_58 visited our Finals!

A warm welcome, meeting with the organizers of the event and experts in software development in the CROC, a festive buffet, a fascinating game round and great prizes and gifts are waiting for the finalists.

"Anyone, regardless of nationality, place of residence and level of education, can be a participant." and then "The official language of the competition is Russian" — please someone put here a good gif of excitement and then disappointment :P.

By the way, 19 March is also a day of Hash Code finals, probably there exist better dates.

IndiaHacks update: We found that 11:00 to 14:00 IST on 19th of March is the ideal time slot for both CROC and Google Hash Code participants.

An organisational question — I am not a nativa Russian speaker (appparently as I write in English). However I understand enough of Russian to be able to compete in Russian. Does this mean I am eligible for official participation?

I registered in the CROC Registration Page and it says "You are registered to the event". Do I have to register again in the contest page or is that alone enough to compete in the Qualification Round?
