    I do a layer method for Pyra, I think.

    The main problem is I've never done a Pyra solve outside of competition. I literally learned it the day before Harvard Fall, and I've never practiced.

    solve a layer. if the cube's not solved, solve a different color layer. if not solved, solve a different color layer, etc. You can average sub-20 with that method with very little practice.

    Really? Repeatedly doing layers until it happens to end up solved?

    I know absolutely nothing about Pyra but on paper that sounds like something that was thought of while drunk.

    Every time I had was better than your average. I still contend that I won.

    Anyone else think they're going? (I know there's a registration list, but people often don't register till late)

    Signed up! Really good chance I'm going.

    Oh, and since when is Kian a delegate? Congratulations on achieving that position.
