Princeton University Cube Club - Cube Tables

Discussion in 'Local Cubing Groups' started by Princeton Cube Club, Nov 13, 2016.

  1. Welcome to the official Princeton University Cube Club - Cube Tables thread!

    About us: The Princeton Cube Club is a student organization at Princeton University sponsored by Jane Street. Mainly, we host cube tables where we invite members of the college campus and speedcubing community to hang out, solve puzzles, and discuss other cubing-related topics over lunch. Also, once a year (though we may possibly increase it to twice a year), we host an official WCA competition at our campus. We have hosted several competitions in the past, our most recent one (as of this post) being Princeton Winter 2016, last February.

    Here you will find the latest updates on when we will be hosting cube tables. We will typically have a cube table once a week, on Saturdays at 12pm. We will usually send a notice out a few days before our next cube table, but expect a cube table when school is in session here and there are no exam or break periods preceding or succeeding the Saturday.

    Cube tables will always be hosted at the Whitman dining hall, in the common area just outside of the eatery so we can accommodate non-Princeton students. Non-Princeton students are not allowed in the eatery, but if you do want lunch, we'll be glad to guest swipe you in if we can. (Students have a maximum of 10 guest swipes.) Below are two pictures of parking and meeting location. When you reach the building, Community Hall, enter through one of the four double doors on the lower level. Make a right and go through another set of doors to enter the common area. We will be sitting at one of the tables to the right.

    If you have any questions, feel free to respond to the thread or send us an email. Also, Cube Club has our own listserv, where we send emails to the listserv members about more exclusive content related to cube tables, competitions, and other events. We highly recommend joining the listserv, as we send more frequent updates there. If you would like to join, do send us an email with your preferred email address and your first and last name.

    Please bring yourself, your cubes, and your cube-like puzzles to our cube tables! We look forward to seeing you all!

  2. We will be hosting a cube table next Saturday, November 19, 2016 at 12pm at the Whitman dining hall.

    Also, the following are tentative dates for upcoming cube tables:
    • Saturday, December 3, 2016
    • Saturday, December 10, 2016
    • Saturday, January 14, 2017
    Note that we will not have additional cube tables in the given months due to Thanksgiving break, Winter break, final exams, and Intersession (break). Cube tables after January 14 will resume in February.

  3. Happy December, cubers!

    We are confirming the next cube table for this Saturday, December 3, 2016 at 12pm at Whitman dining hall. Also, unless I post otherwise, we will also host the cube table scheduled for Saturday, December 10, 2016, same time and place.
  4. Happy holidays, cubers!

    Our final cube table of 2016 is this Saturday, December 10, 2016 at 12pm at Whitman dining hall. I highly suggest that you come to this cube table, as we will be discussing our next WCA competition, and we'd like to chat with you about it. We'll highly consider your input if you attend!
  5. Quick update: The proposed cube table for Saturday, January 14, 2017 will not take place. The next cube table will likely be on Saturday, February 4, 2017.
    EDIT: Removed reference to tentative competition.
    EDIT: Miscalculation on date of next cube table; will likely be the following week, February 11, 2017. Watch for confirmation post.

  6. Some news:

    1) The following is a tentative schedule for the remainder of the 2016-2017 academic year. Changes or cancellations will be announced primarily via our mailing list, and/or via this thread.
    • Saturday, March 4, 2017
    • Saturday, April 1, 2017
    • Saturday, April 15, 2017
    • Saturday, April 29, 2017

    2) The website, http://www.princeton.edu/~cubeclub/ is now up to date.
    3) I am currently looking towards a competition, Princeton Fall 2017, on September 23, 2017, pending approval. Updates to follow.
  7. April Updates:
    1) Next cube table on April 1, as planned
    2) April 29 cube table cancelled due to Princeton Splash event
    3) If you know a high schooler who wants to learn to solve a Rubik's cube from total scratch, tell them about Princeton Splash. Our club is hosting a class on that day, and registration for the whole event begins tomorrow I believe, and seats may fill fast.
  8. Quick updates:

    1) Cube table this Saturday April 15, same time and place
    2) Princeton Splash on April 29, so no cube table
    3) Courtesy of Maki: Join the World Inter-University Cube Relay 2016-2017, see the link for details: http://cubefreak.net/contests/universityrelay/index.php
    4) Surprise party for teoidus (our treasurer) for his 100 subscriber mark is still on. He needs just 3 more subscribers to reach 100.
  9. Happy September, cubers!
