Negative Time Solving Contest 2016

It's the 13th year of the annual Negative Time Solving Contest!

DST (Daylight Saving Time) ends in most parts of the United States and Canada at 2am on Sunday, November 6. See Time and Date.com to check the clock change schedule in your area. There's also a Facebook event page (scheduled at North America time).

Please note that each solve started (not just start the timer but actually make a move) before daylight saving ends and completed after it ends counts as a negative solve. This means that you can simultaneously compete in 3x3 speedsolve, 3x3 BLD, multiBLD, etc, at the cost of some extra time in your negative solve.

Thanks to Tyson Mao for bringing this great Caltech tradition to cubing. Good luck to all participants!
