baha, there have been plans to run a Progsoc programming contest every year since I joined, which I will simply mention was last millennium.  One time we got a few people doing Robot Wars.  Recently some people were chipping away at Project Euler.  But I think the basic problem is that anyone who actually can program is doing it for pay.  The supply of undergrad programming talent has been limited for as long as I can remember, and dwindling steadily since dot com.  And get off my lawn.
