Well, it's my last year in high school, and it's my school's club which is organizing it. I might help organize more competitions un the future, but not at the same venue with the club.
There are quite a few guys at my school who cube and are interested in started a club so maybe next year my school can be the venue :)

The truth is Antoine knows that I'm close to beating all his PBs so he's leaving town. I got him scurred!
I feel that this is very accurate.

I'm looking to organize a comp in the future. I can possibly help host the comp at your school should that work out. Where in Ottawa is your school?
Awesome! Since NCR is in May and I'll be starting the club in the next school year, it will take a while to get things together (projected early 2017). My school is Colonel By and it's in gloucester (so east of downtown).

Edit: @qwertycuber there should be a Toronto comp in the summer if this year is following the patterns of previous years.

There has been like 5 competitions in Ontario lately, but I was not able to come an any of the competitions because of schedule reasons. I wish there would be competitions in Ottawa during the summer break, because that is the only time I am available.

I'd like to possibly organize something somewhere this year. Possibly summer or fall. In ottawa

I was 5 minutes away from there yesterday. Wrote a test at a building on shefford. Lol

Cool. You go to Colonel By? Is it for the IB program? a lot of my friends are going there, but I'm going to west carleton next year, since I am in grade 8, but I might apply for Colonel By for grade 10.

I would be available to help out for that, but I think one comp a year in Ottawa is as many as Dave is willing to do.

Yeah, I'm in IB. That's cool, I've heard west carleton is pretty good. I wouldn't recommend switching to IB after doing grade 9 in non-IB. Most of the grade 10 courses aren't much harder than normal academic, but math is a big difference. Grade 9 IB math covers the grade 9 and grade 10 Ontario academic curriculum, so you will have to take grade 10 math in the summer in order to catch up. I'm in grade 10 so in math we're doing grade 11 curriculum which is basically the functions course, or MCR3UE. Then in grade 11, IB math is grade 12 advanced functions (MHF4U), and in grade 12 IB math is calculus and vectors (MCV4U) and plus some first year university content. So yeah, if you really want to switch to IB, go for it. But be warned: you'll have to take grade 10 math next summer and IB is A LOT OF WORK.

I was talking to Dave and he mentioned he'd like to see a fall comp in Ottawa.

So maybe you could ask the powers that be at your school if they would let us host a comp. We should keep in contact. I'm also putting out feelers for possible venues in Ottawa.

Oh ok that's awesome. I'll get to work on the club in september as soon as school starts, then I'll immediately start planning and asking around school about a competition in november maybe. Ok, add me on skype. (either KianMansour or [email protected])

Well, I am in grade 8, and I have been studying grade 9 and 10 math, because in my opinion, Ontario curriculum takes it too easy.
