    I hope April. March would be harder for me, and it's getting pretty close.

    Edit: also mid-ish March relatively nearby we've got ISU, MCC, and Dixon comps.

    I'm curious about all you new guys. I'm a real old timer, been cubing since 2008, currently going to college in Whitewater but originally from Wisconsin Dells area. I've been kind of inactive on the forums for the past couple of years and am really shocked by how many WI cubers there are now. Last time I checked, there were like 5 all time and only like 3 active ones.

    Are any of you guys adults? I'm 21. And approx where do you guys live currently?

    I'm 29. Got my first cube almost two years ago now as a birthday present for my 28th birthday. I have a dairy farm 10 miles north of Seneca, 15 miles south of Viroqua.

    MCC and ISU are far enough away I think. Dixon is the only one that potentially could interfere with them.
    Walker said they would be in Madison or Milwaukee. It might change though.

    Nope, I'm still in high school. And I'm from Illinois.
    I learned to solve the cube mid summer-2015, got down to low 30 by thanksgiving. Mid 20 by feburary, then promptly switched to ZZ. Got sub-20 during the early summer, pushed it to about high 16 by late august, and failed to get a good average twice. Broke both Feet SRs at Michigan 2016 without realizing it. Got faster, picked up mega and the BLDs.
    Broke Feet SRs again at MCC alpha, and the mean at the recent WW2017.

    ISU is closer for me than Milwaukee, I think, but I guess I'm kind of on the edge.

    I might go to ISU if the wisconsin comp isn't around that time. As for the questions on age, I'm 16 and live in central wisconsin as well. Started cubing in august, and I'm really hoping to get sub 20 within the next week or two.

    I'm not interested in anything unofficial so I don't. I guess the best resource would be to look out for them on the forums though.

    Is this competition in March a for sure thing? I would definitely be going. What about you guys? It would be fun to meet some cubers from Wisconsin.

    Technically it would have to be in the last half of March now, since according to WCA regulations it has to be announced 2 weeks ahead of time, and usually they announce further ahead than that. Last year there was a comp in Madison the last weekend of April. I'm guessing that's when we're looking at.

    I'd like to, but I'm waiting for one a little closer than 4 hours. It's a great event list and pretty generous time limits, so it's especially disappointing, but this is a very busy time of year, too.

    So what's the status on the next wisconsin comp? Anyone have ideas? I have gotta get a 3x3 avg in to qualify for nats, and also meet up with some of you guys again.
