    Yes! Feet event! I really hope I can make it there though.
    Edit: Just saw "Tentative" right now. Whoever is organizing this competition, please keep feet, it's so difficult to do this event in Canada.
    Edit2: If possible, it would be nice if someone from around Mississauga could give me a ride to the competition, back and forth. Of course, I will pay you. Otherwise I don't really know how I will get there, maybe by train? I would have to leave very early, around 03:00 to reach on time.

    I'll be there :)

    Actually, the real question is "will the North American Record still stand"?

    Probably not :)
    I'm not 100% that Dave will be okay with us doing feet, but I really hope we can!
    (If he wants, we can use our clubs stackmats for feet)

    I'm a noob so i apologize if my questions have common knowledge answers.

    Do you have to register for this competition in advance or do you just show up?
    My 3x3 average is about 34seconds so I wondered if there was even a point to going as
    I'm sure anyone who would compete would certainly be sub 20 solvers??

    Is anyone from Toronto area going that has space in their car?
    Don't worry about your times, I went to my first competition with a 47 average. You save money by signing up in advance, you can however also sign up when you arrive. To sign up in advance, go to canadiancubing.com.

    Thanks!

    Is there anything you would have wanted to know before competing for the first time?
    Things you would have brought etc?

    I see many people have a WCA profile number. Do i need one before competing?

    If I do multi, I'm just going for a 1/2 score, I don't really have time to practice it.
