Pan-Africans (PAUDC) 2011 Results

Following the tragic news about the Namabian teams returning home after PAUDC I decided to hold off posting this as a mark of respect (it felt strange to celebrate the winners given what had happened). To make up for the delay in making the announcement I decided to post during Worlds when the visits to the site are busiest so here are the results from the recent PAUDC.
