Registered. I should be there (I can help judge/etc), but might have to drive up the night before. 4.5 hours away, skipping Square-1 but still don't want to wake up at 5 in the morning...

And no clock

See you guys there. Unless something comes up. This is my shortest drive to a competition. (3 hours.)

I guess this is because only 1 round of 2x2?

Nah, because of 2 rounds of 3x3, no OH, and no MBLD.

This is exactly why I like it (besides the MBLD). Just add Megaminx and get rid of Magic and it will be perfect, though I don't think Magic really interfere's with the time or anything so it's fine.

I think I can go to this. So far there's no reason not to, I even think school has ended for me by then.

I think that john here only added more rounds to events which he had a relatively good chance of winning.

YES. Last night I was hoping for a comp to show up close by. AND ONE DID. But no OH? I wanted to update that since I got faster.

We're really hopeful there will be time to add OH. The schedule was just a little too tight to promise it. It will almost certainly be the first thing added if we get sufficiently ahead of schedule.

Perhaps the way the schedule is written is confusing, but if you'll notice, it's only 1.5 hours for 7x7x7, 11:30 to 1:00, and that time includes lunch. (And you have to leave the venue to get lunch - there are places close by, but not in the building.)

The schedule was designed to be safe. I'm very hopeful we will get some optional events in, and if it goes as well as last time, there's a good chance we'll get them all in.

Oh, and I suspect we could really use your help scrambling; you'd probably be one of the fastest people we could get for scrambling big cubes - we'll probably take you up on that!

They went safe last year and we ended up adding 2-3 different events. Also, I'll scramble for 7x7 also, since I won't be competing.

We wouldn't use you for scrambling until you were done solving. We'd probably let Rubiks560 scramble for 7x7x7 first (since he just volunteered!) and then use you afterwards if we still need you. It would be nice to have you scramble instead of John, so he could focus on getting other things going. It's nice having several fast people at 7x7x7.
