     Last year for SoC 2005 LispNYC did extremely well, grossly
     outperforming organizations far larger than us.  This was primarily
     due to the _quality_ rather than the quantity of submissions, as
     LispNYC mentored the candidates from the beginning to make sure that
     all project submissions were: gramicillay korrect, well planned and
     well thought out.
