This event is in the beginning stages and would be held on April 6th. If the 6th doesn't work well for a majority(Saturday right after Easter) a backup day is on April 27th. I would want to know if you would be interested in attending this competition. All now is it to be approved by the WCA board and is pending if Bryan Logan will go.
If interested contact me at my email [email protected] or reply to this thread. Also for a sense of location Solon, Iowa is right between Cedar Rapids, IA and Iowa City, IA. More updates will follow. Below are events that would be in the competition and other possible events. (Note the events listed may not appear in the final schedule so don't get your hopes up)

Probably coming. If I don't meet the "cut off" for 5x5, would that just mean I don't get on to the second round, or what does that mean?
A cutoff refers to a speed that one of your first two solves needs to be or else you don't get to finish your average. It's also called a soft cutoff, while a hard cutoff is one where if you get to that time you do not get to complete your solve.

I was hoping you were going to say that you would make another trip out to Iowa! :p

So I would only get 2 5x5 solves if I didn't meet the soft cut off?

Yep, that's exactly what happens. Your single times will be recorded by the WCA, but you won't get an average. If you want to see what I mean check out my 5x5 results from Cubetcha 2012. The soft cut-off was 2:30, hard was 3:30 or something like that.

Dates for the Competition have been narrowed down to 3. They are April 6, April 13, and April 27. May can't work due to graduation.
Hey anyone know how to get a hold off Bryan Logan? Its been 4 weeks since I last heard from him and he is the one that makes this competition official or not.
