    Wow, we have 46 competitors so far, with 13 1/2 hours to go.

    This is Australia's biggest competition yet.

    You are most welcome to host as many competitions as you like. As long as you can organise a suitable venue, equipment and a WCA delegate then go for it!

    No you don't have a delegate, and at this stage there is no need for one. Sydney is welcome to "prove itself worthy" of getting a delegate, so to speak, but first the community needs to step up and take more control of organising competitions, and a particular individual needs to show themselves trustworthy and valuable enough to the community to become a delegate.

    But well done getting 46 people registered, now let's see how many show up.

    Yeah, Dene was just confirming what "Cube Equation" pointed out, that there's no WCA delegate in Sydney.

    In the case of Perth, I nominated Michael Taran as a WCA delegate due to his standing in the community (and the cost of flying/staying there). He'll essentially become a delegate after another competition or two.

    A WCA delegate isn't really required in NSW until the demand for competitions increases (by organisers in NSW actively proposing competitions with equipment, venue etc). I'm happy to fly up 2-3 times a year at my own expense but any more than that and I'd have to ask that some of the flight/accommodation costs be factored into registration by the organisers (or nominate a delegate in NSW).

    So yeah, if cubers get together more often and propose competitions (venue, equipment, competitors ready) then speedcubing would naturally expand across Australia. :)

    Tim.

    Will anyone be selling cubes on the day? I just broke my 3rd 4x4x4 and now have none to compete with, and no real way of purchasing another.

    All Zhanchis include torpedoes, there wouldn't be a reason it wouldn't have one

    @TimMc
    Lanyards.
    Will you be printing out one for everyone? Or do you want past cubers to bring their nametags?

    Oh and, any final prep stuff that needs to be done? Want me to do anything?
