If you think about it, maybe 20-25 people, and that's hopefully including;
+more, I think ratio of helpers:first timers will be a little better here. Especially as I can scramble for Faz and he can scramble for me, so we won't have problems such as last Saturday's 4x4 final. OH is very popular so I don't think that should be dropped. Pyra is a nice beginner puzzle like 2x2, so it usually has a few competitors, but as you said, it's Sydney cubers' favourites, not mine.
Lol funny how I got left out of that list when I was the one that created this thread.
We will definitely be doing 5x5; we (i.e. TimMc) will not be hosting competitions without 5x5 as long as I'm here.
Basically, those that put their hand up and volunteer all day get priority for choice of events. For example, Zane has always been a good helper, and since he has shown great competence at the bld events we have gone out of our way to host extra events for him. And thanks to his helpfulness he now has the world record in multibld (not to mention the fact that he is the world champion in 3x3bld, although I like to think that we helped nurture that by always hosting bld (in the same way that I take all the credit for faz and all his powers <3)).
Point being, if you want a particular event to be held, then show up and help a lot, or else don't specialise in a rarely held event .
Pyra and OH or gtfo.
am I doin' it right?
I left you out because I didn't see you on the poll.
I also forgot to mention Braden Helmer and family. They'll help assuming they're coming.
Then ufail, I voted for 4 out of 5 options . And yes, we will have pyra and OH.
Sign me up for anything organizational-wise that's needed, in addition to whatever you need on the day.
Events, I recommend Magic and Pyra, simply because we want to encourage beginners.
I'd also nominate that we do a round of BLD. If we do the "10 minutes total cutoff" thing that we did at MCD, it doesn't take much time, and is likely to interest spectators.
