  1. Ooooh, nice events... Megaminx, OH, BLD, 5x5...

    I hope my mom can get the day off and take me.
    Or that I can get my drivers permit and share driving with my dad?

    Yay I can go!

    It'll be nice meeting all of you at Hillcrest!
     
  4. It'll be cool meeting you all also!
    I'm so hyped for this competition; hoping for a possible podium in OH and Mega, finals in 3x3 would be cool too, but equally unlikely.

    BandedCubing101 and I are possibly organizing a competition in the Madison area on August 12th or 13th. Does anyone know of any other competitions in the same area and time frame?

    Yes, there will be one a couple of weeks after that. That is also the same weekend as Michigan.

    Do you think you could help us organize the competition? It would be awesome, since we're inexperienced, this is our first competition we're organizing.

    Ok, I was wondering how do you get CubingUSA to make a website?

    Another question is if you'd be willing to staff at the competition.

    Will the competition area for Feet be carpeted or hardwood/stone/tiles/cement?
    I need to know which surface to practice on :).
    Wisconsin winter 2017 was not a very nice surprise. I hadn't had much experience on hard floors and thus failed sub1 :mad:.

    @BandedCubing101 you get a cubingusa website through a delegate and they will set everything up. However some delegates are favoring WCA website rather than CubingUsa.

    @GenTheThief I've been to the venue and it's a gym with a concrete type floor. Hard I guess.

    Around 3 months ago, I said I was organizing a comp in Madison with BandedCubing101, and that was postpned to early 2018. One problem is making an event list. Since a lot of you will probably attend this competition, you should have a say in what events we should have at the competition. Here is the survey. You can choose as many events as you want, and the most popular events will be in the competition. Happy Cubing!

    EDIT: The Form will close on 9/17/2017

    I've noticed that a lot of the comps in the upper Midwest have feet. Do the delegates in this area like holding feet? It might be easier to offer it than not, depending on the delegate. I've never organized a comp, but I would also note that it seems to me that scheduling would be easier for fixed-time events (FMC and MBLD) and slightly easier for long-duration events like big blind. Fewer competitors means fewer variables.

    Good luck! I voted for 4, 6, and 7, but I'd love to see 5 and mega offered too (and feet, of course)
