Colony Worlds has Carnivals of Space 39 and 40. One of the articles in the carivals is by Next Big Future, and it's on the 2008 Space Elevator Games. The post covers some of the material you know already if you've been following the Space Elevator Blog, but if it's new you get the information in a quick format and can go to the SE blog if you want more.
The comments are also interesting. One mentions a related post at the Liftport Staff Blog expressing safety concerns with the difficult and complex 2008 climber challenge.
