    I'm organizing another (small) competition on August 25 and 26 in Enschede, the Netherlands. Main focus of this competition is FMC! (probably 6 attempts if you make the finals!)
    Such a competition just screams for an awesome name like 'Thinktank FMC' or whatever. Due to my ability of being not-original I was hoping you could help a little bit.

    Also: you are more than welcome to give some tips for the competition. On saturday-evening there will be the possibility to stay in the (small) venue until about midnight and have a chat and drink with everyone!

    I'm still trying to arrange some group-sleeping accommodation for little money. People from far away might be invited to my house ;-)

    EDIT: REGISTRATION IS OPEN: http://www.worldcubeassociation.org/...MovesN00bs2012

    Fewest-Move-A-Palooza!

    Also, you should give out a prize for fewest moves for the total of all attempts (DNF counts as 50 or something like that).

    My fail-attempts at being original:
    Movecount 2012
    How Low Can You Go
    Fancy Moves
    Moves 2012
    Show me your moves
    Frikkies Mega Competion
    Frikkies Mental Challenge
    Frikkies Mega Challenge
    Frikkies Move Challence
    Frikkies Magic Challence (Do NOT have magic as side event but have Rob do some magic tricks)
    Or something along these lines

    BTW: Do you already know which “side” events you’re doing?
    Apart from 3x3x3 to please the local crowd you might do some brainy stuff like BLD

    What about 'Brain Challenge 2012'? Then you could do BLD(and maybe 4x4, 5x5 BLD) as sideevent ;)
    Other ideas:
    Fewest Moves Championship 2012
    Fewest Moves 2012
    FMC 2012
    FMC-Skills 2012
    Enschede Open 2012 - Fewest Moves

    I think 6 hours of fmc is enough to kill most people's brains off...I'd rather just concentrate on the fmc, because I know what happens when people try to do bld with a tired brain (e.g. 5bld at Euros 2010)
    I really hope I make it there, and I'll compete in whatever side events there are. Clock is always nice :)

    Ding, ding; we have a winner!

    We need 3x3x3 on saturday to lure people into the FMC web :)
    3x3x3 on Sunday (like it is typically done) doesn't allow 1-day visitors to do FMC

    This competition must do all it can to spread the FMC love :)

    As side event there will of course be 3x3. The chances of having a BLD event are kinda small!
    Don't know about the rest. The events do not necessarily have to be official. I'm thinking about stuff like:

    TeamBLD
    Pyraminx (everyone loves Pyraminx)
    Head2head FMC (it's fun, will explain later)
    etc

    Cubenovice: err no, I'm not seeking a huge number of competitors. Limit will probably be 30, but it would certainly be nice to have some people who don't think it's a big deal if they don't make the finals. It would suck if for example Okayama would come and we all find good stuff in the first round and he would not make the finals (of course this is not very likely but you get the idea)

    I would like to see an average fmc 2x2 (3 or 4) that the record on a 3x3 fmc simple only. The competition would'nt be more time consuming because it is out of the corner.

    FMC Ladders? Wouldn't that be awesome?

    Probably wouldn't work super well now that I think about it.

    I have never done FMC, this could be a nice start! If I have the money, I will practice FMC during July a little and then go to this competition. I probably won't though, from Toronto to Amsterdam is expensive. :(

    Man I thought I was going to be all original but you beat me to it. :C

    By far the best submission thus far.

    Thanks for suggestions guys!
    Personally I like 'Moves are for n00bs' :p but no name is picked yet.

    The venue is now settled, I'm still in the process of arranging some group-accomodation for sleeping. Who would be interested in sleeping in a cabin (15 people) and for how many nights?
     
  17. FMC- Fried my cube xD.

    Sounds fun! I might be on holiday that day. For only FMC I dont think I'll come but when 3-5 or 2-5 events are also included I will be there :D
