Time for goals I guess:
2x2: sub 2.5 average
3x3: sub 8 single, sub 9 average
4x4: pb average, may not happen though
5x5: sub 1:20 average pls
6x6: borrow firstian's cube and lookahead properly
7x7: sub 4 mean
Mega: decent average, make finals? though very unlikely
Pyra: don't fail, but at this point I know it's gonna happen :(
Sq1: sub 12 average, make finals? but again unlikely
Skewb: sub 5.5
3BLD: sub 30!! make finals
Big BLD: don't do terribly, a 4BLD PB would be great but highly unlikely. placing top 5 would be nice
MBLD: hoping for a random PB out of the blue
Don't fail others
Meet, talk, race and take photos with lots of people

Been looking forward to this for a while :D My cubing skills are quite rusty so I probably won't achieve many of my goals, but I know it's gonna be a great comp. See everyone there!

Gah, I forgot about you (blind competition wise!) Maybe we can be washed up and fail together :D

My goals:

Get there.

Have no expectations whatsoever and yet miraculously come out with awesome PBs in every BLD event.

Failing that, go home with at least one half-decent achievement I can report to all those non-cubers who have asked me if I think I can win :)

Have fun and meet lots of cool people from around the world.

Thread starter #307
Spare Eurostar Ticket (London -> Paris)

Understand that at this late stage everyone will already have their travel booked, but thought I'd put it out there that there is a spare ticket on tomorrow's Eurostar group trip to Paris with us (26 people).

Departs at 13:31 and the ticket costs £51 (It's only one way).

Like I said, unlikely that anyone will need it, but just putting it out there.

I saw some people on the livestream wearing electronic headphones during some solves. Someone should be looking in to that, as it's not allowed.
