    Hi everyone,

    Stanford Spring 2012 is planned for May 6. Registration and other information is available at the competition's web page: http://ca.cubingusa.com/stanfordspring2012/

    Note that this competition hasn't been approved by the WCA yet. We were going to wait for official status before announcing to the community, but there have been some unforeseen complications getting WCA approval, so in the meantime we decided it's best to at least let everyone know what's going on.

    For some reason, the links aren't working. Same for Cal Day. I tried another computer and it didn't work; you get some type of error page. Is is just me or are other people experiencing these problems?

    This has been happening for New Albany 2012/KOII. I think all the pages are down at the moment.

    I'm getting the same problems on multiple pages. It'll probably get fixed within a day.
    Also, if people want to do Skewb, I've let Ravi know that I'll be more than glad to run it =)

    Update: the competition gained official status yesterday. We've had to enlist some new staff (thanks to everyone who volunteered!) due to the anticipated absence of several of our usual helpers, but I'm happy to say that we are still offering all of the originally scheduled events. You can register at http://ca.cubingusa.com/stanfordspring2012/register.php if you haven't done so already.

    So, we had a math writer named Dana McKenzie at the competition. He was there to take a few pictures for his book (volume 9 of "What’s Happening in the Mathematical Sciences"), but we managed to get him to participate in non-cuber team BLD. :p

    He has a nice blog post about the competition on his site.
