    Guidelines:

    • Anyone is welcome to join, there are absolutely no requirements to join... except knowing how to solve a 7x7 :p
    • This is a multiple goal thread, More like targets, with the goal times being: 12 minutes, 10 Minutes, 9 Minutes, 8 Minutes, 7 Minutes, 6 Minutes, 5 Minutes & finally 4 Minutes :eek:
    • Please do not use your own scrambles, please use the scrambles I list on this thread for said round
    • We will be using the Ao5 system where you complete 5 solves, remove the best and worst times, then average the remaining three. DNF counts as worst and 2x DNF is a DNF Average

    Example post:

    Please use "Green" & "Red" to colour the best and worst times respectfully. If you use other colours then I will have trouble reading them!!! the other option is not colouring them, but its nicer if you do.

    Bad example Post: (Worst post or posts so far)

    Please don't do this...

    any results posted using LIME instead of GREEN WILL be discounted.
    as of 2nd February 2012

    General:

    Each round will run Friday to Friday, between 8am GMT and 11pm GMT, although it could easily be the smaller hours of Saturday morning.
    Any late entries will not be counted as of 10th February 2012
    ** This may change at the start of each academic year (September) **

    Any late results will be ignored. Any results with just an average, no individual times, will also be ignored. Finally, any results with less or more than 5 solves will be ignored.

    Good luck :)

    The other one wont be run any longer, this is its replacement, treat it exactly the same as the last thread.

    Created a new one so I could have control over the goals and the first posts... just looks nicer.

    Who votes on me making the "USE GREEN" quote up there massive so you cannot miss it... seriously, I cant see lime.
    either fix it or just leave it black

    I have put this in the first post as well, theoretically, no one can miss it... although some will

    Goal is sub7

    7:51.66, 7:19.44, 6:53.67, 7:40.26, 7:34.51 = 7:31.40

    Horrible solves and still was almost PB (7:30 is pb for AO5).

    I should really put time in to actually solve this more. PB single! First sub7. Centers were 3:35 (normally I'm like 4 flat)

    I remember when you started participating in the race, I was averaging like sub 8, now you are sub 8 and maybe you are faster than me, the sad thing is that I try to practice 7x7 as much as I can, and I'm still in the same time and you are now faster than me xD.

    i just did my 6th solve and it was 6:47.48. PB again. I might be sub7 soon.

    I solve 7x7 (like 5-6 solves) every month. I'm surprised I keep improving. Oh, because of that new PB single, I have a 7:15.87 AO5. PB by 15 s econds.

    When I first joined I was like 11 minutes :).

    7x7's tend to warm up after a few solves... due to amount of turns you do during each solve, I usually do 3 or 4 before an Ao5, makes all the difference
