NEW UPDATE: The competition will now be held on March 30th, 2019!

I am really sorry that I have to move the competition and I know that you were all looking forward to it, but due to some unexpected thing that have come up, I have to move the competition. I have gotten AJ (the delegate) and the venue owner to allow me to move the dates, and so it will be moved to March 30th.

I hope that you are all still looking forward to it and I am personally very excited for it, and I wish that I could host more comps for you all, but for now it is what it is. The events list, venue and all will stay the same, and the only difference is the date.

I am going to still try and get the comp listed on the WCA website before the end of this year, especially since I am not feel up to it starting in January, so hopefully that will be up then for you all with all the info. Thank you all very much for your offers with helping out at the comp, and I know for sure that I will especially be needing as much help as I can get.

I guess that the only good thing for moving the dates, is that (1) The weather might be better, and (2) You will have more time to practice the events. : )
Please let me know if you have any questions with any of this, and I look forward to seeing you all in March.

Happy Cubing,

-Tristan

Hey! I'm a friend of M1n1tutl3, and I will be attending the comp.! My mom was a runner at the last comp. I went to, and I think she would be more than willing to be one for this comp.! I'm super pumped for this, since it is my second comp, and I can update my times lol! Also would it be possible to add a round of 2x2 and or 4x4? Just wondering. One more thing: any estimate on when it will be put on the WCA? Alright that's all! Thanks!
As you can see above the date is now changed, so that may change your moms plans, but thank you very much (to your mom as well) for the offer to help staff the comp. I will be needing staff for those willing to help, so again than you for the offer.

For events, I will be leaving it as it is for the comp, especially since I wanted this comp to have some events that are not help as often in Colorado, so again I will be leaving it as it is. Hopefully the next comp I have will have those events.

And lastly, the venue is the Colorado Springs Shrine Club, located in Colorado Springs.

I’m glad it got moved to March, as I was concerned about weather, however my chances to go have now lowered unfortunately, as that weekend is the last weekend of D20 Spring Break. Depending on my break plans, I might or might not be able to go. Still excited though.

Edit: Cannot go anymore, will be in Arizona for family and concerts. It’s all good, I can just go to more future comps or organize my own on a later day.

Aw, dang it. Exactly 1 weekend after my spring break. There's a chance I may be able to go, but my original chances have lowered. Hopefully I can still make it, I really just want to get squan SR :p.

Yeah Tristan, literally no one can go now after the move. None of my club can go, Jordan can’t go, Pretty sure Dylan and Holden can’t go.

My advice would be to move it to early April or move it back to mid March. Really hoping we can have big comps, not small comps.

Sorry if I sound rude, just a bit stressed today.
First off, I am NOT and CAN NOT re-move the comp date. I am more sorry then you know that I had to move the date as it is, but since I will not be around in February at all I had to move the date, and the only date that the venue had still available was March 30th, and everything else is already booked January-August. As you and Jorden and many others know, I have since May 2018 (this past summer) been planning the Feb comp, and I had everything still ready for that, but do to unfortunate circumstances I had to move the date.

For what it is worth to you and others, I do in any way sincerely apologize to you and any others that cannot make the comp, and I am very sorry that I had to move it. It was in no way my choice, and I was really looking forward to the comp and being able to see you all/compete with you all again...even if I am not able to compete much, or at all.

Secondly, "Literally" is a pretty strong word to use since you only named a few individuals that cannot make the comp (excluding your club, since I do not know how many there are in there). As you may already know, Colorado has been growing pretty big in the cubing world and I am pretty sure that there will be at least 75+ cubers that will be able to make the comp, and that is still a really good amount (especially since I will be having a 90 competitor limit).
But even if for some reason only 70 or less people compete I will still be happy that I was able to have the competition at all, even if some of my friends cannot come. I have been trying to gt more comps organized, and I was hoping to have one this past fall but that did not work out due to various reasons.

Thirdly, I was just last week talking to a competitor (Logan D. R) who is trying and really hoping to have a comp in January/February, and the only thing holding him back at the moment is that he is waiting to hear back from AJ, which I even sent him a quick message as well letting him know that Logan is trying to get in contact with him (and I did that because Logan asked me to). I have been trying to help Logan out a much as I can and I will be able to try and help out where I can and how I am feeling at that time, but since at the moment I cannot help Logan, I am hoping that he and AJ can get in touch with each other and be able to have a Jan/Feb comp for you all, and I will try to push for that as much as I can even if I cannot attend.

I hope thatr thia all make sense to you, and I do again apoligize in all ways that I had to move the comp, but hopfully next year I can host 2-4 and do it at times that work for you.

Hey mate, first of all I’d like to apologize for my choice of words. Like I said, I am very stressed with academics and finals coming up.

Second of all, I am glad that there are more competitions being organized in Colorado and more plans to organize competitions in Colorado. Hopefully that competition that’s being in the works does not fall through and I can go to it either before my dad deploys or shortly after my dad deploys.

Third of all, For future reference, I advise before rescheduling competitions to look at nearby school districts in their schedules to see if there any holiday breaks or anything that interferes, because most of the time younger cubers like to go on trips out of state during these breaks.

To clarify this is just a friendly advice I’m not criticizing you in anyway, you are still my friend and I respect all your decisions that you’ve made.

Thank you for responding. It sucks that I can’t be there to help out but I hope that everything works out.
