    I would suggest not having a cut-off for 3x3. You do get some people who start out that are around 75 seconds. By shutting them out, you're discouraging building a community. Even if someone is taking 3 minutes on 3x3, it's not going to kill the competition. If you end up getting a bunch, then you might have some issues. Even World's has a limit of 2:30 for the 3x3.

    Thanx for starting this thread Austin. One change that will be coming to the schedule is that we wil be having 2 rounds of 2x2 instead of 3. We are on a strict schedule as we have to be out of the Venue by 5pm and the WCA thought we will run long with having 3 rounds. The website will be updated today.

    Thanx,
    Chris

    Oh man. You'd think that after 6 months they might learn to not schedule it the same day as the SAT! Man! Not this again! But luckily I'm not taking the SAT that day, instead I'll be in a We The People competition for my AP Government class. Great, if it's not one thing it's another. WHY ME! So I'll be arriving late...AGAIN. Making up the events will be pretty jam packed. So if you're looking for an epic show, WATCH ME.

    The only weekend I can be down there is next weekend (22-23). However, does anyone up here want to have a meetup as well?
