All current (new) scramblers from the WCA are used.
• For all 3x3x3 events (including FMC) Cube Explorer was used to generate a random position and provide an inverse scramble (generator) for that position.
• For all cubes > 3x3x3 (mediumcubes) a "w" means "Wide" so you turn not just the slice, but also the outer layer.
• For all cubes > 5x5x5 (bigcubes) normally a subscript number indicates the amount of layers to turn like a wide turn. U32 would mean to turn the the U layer and the 2 layers beneath it (3 in total) a half turn. However, this forum doesn't support subscript, so I transform the default notation to "3U2" notation which also means "turn the 3 uppermost layers a half turn".
• For Megaminx R and D are "double layer moves of the entire megaminx. The U moves are normal U moves, not "double layer" or cube rotations
• For Square1 the new notation is not entirely clear about when to perform a slice/half-turn. I adjusted the scrambles so that no slice-turns are to be performed at the beginning or the end (unless the scramble begins or ends with (0,0))
• Clock hasn't changed, but just so you know: UddU u=-1,d=5 would mean Up-Left-pin is Up, Up-Right-pin is Down, Down-Left-pin is Down, Down-Right-pin is Up and that you need to turn a corner that has its pin up rotated counterclockwise by 1 hour and that you need to turn a corner that has its pin down rotated clockwise by 5 hours
• Pyraminx small letters are for the tips
Just to make sure everyone understands: We follow the official WCA rules for all events. Here are some things that people often don't know:
• For multiple blind you can choose how many cubes you are going to do (let me know if 15 scrambles is not enough). If you choose 5 cubes you have to use the first 5 scrambles.
• For one-handed you can use both hands during inspection
• For with feet you can only use feet during inspection
• For 3x3x3 Fewest Moves there is a 1 hour time limit.
• For relay you have 15 seconds of inspection in total, you can use any order to solve the cubes and the rest of the relay-rules should be obvious
For every event you participate in you will be rewarded points. You will also be rewarded points according to your ranking. Because this is quite a complicated system you can read about it in this thread. The results of the competition will be available as soon as possible after the competition closes at the end of the thread.

If you think other events should be added to this competition you can influence that in the 2008: Other events for Weekly competition thread

This competition starts now and ends wednesday/thursday nightchange (officialy), but I will only close a competition after the new one is on-line. If a competition doesn't start at wednesday/thursday nightchange you still get the full 7 days to participate.

2x2: 5.25, (7.64), 5.70, 6.70, (3.84) = 5.88 - Bad

3x3: (16.31), 17.59, 17.05, 18.56, (19.70) = 17.73 - Horrible!

4x4: 1:04.28, 1:03.20, (58.44), 1:11.88, 1:22.09 = 1:06.45 - Good except for the last solve.

3x3 OH: (36.72), 44.17, (50.08), 39.94, 39.92 = 41.34 - meh.

2-4 relay: 1:39.97 DP

2x2 BLD: 58.40, DNF, 44.50 = 44.50

3x3 BLD: 3:39.91, DNS, DNS = 3:39.91 - Too tired to do the last two

Match the Scramble: 2:03.36, (2:17.86), 1:51.25, (1:46.21), 2:16.53 = 2:03.71 - this is fun bad times though..

Pyraminx: 8.00, 5.84, (11.25), 7.58, (5.28) = 7.14 - Good

Megaminx:
1:46.20, 1:43.77, (1:40.62), 1:46.30, (1:56.75) = 1:45.42

Sq1: 44.78, 39.67, (1:14.61), (29.36), 1:00.72 = 48.39 - I've gotten worse at this 4th solve was so easy

Fewest Moves:

So... I normally suck at Fewest.. probably because I'm so impatiant, though today I beat my PB!

First solution I found was:
U2 F L' U' L U' R B' L U L' F R' F' B U' B2 R B R' U2 R U R' U F' U' F U' R U' R U R U R U' R' U' R2 - 40 moves.

Then I remembered that Daniel Lundwall had taught me that I could decrease the amount of moves for the 3 cycle of edges by finding them all lined up in the M, S or E slice. I scrambled it again and looked for the pieces and immediately saw that they were lined up!

So I did B2 E' B2 E (6) and did my solution that I found earlier and that resulted in a forced LL skip

Fewest moves is starting to become fun I'll practise for my next comp I promised Gunnar and Daniel that I would do FMC then

So.. Here's my final solution:

B2 E B2 E' U2 F L' U' L U' R B' L U L' F R' F' B U' B2 R B R' U2 R U R' U F' U' F U' - 35

Are you aloud to write E, S or M in fewest? Well.. I counted E as 2 moves, since I know that it is 2 moves..

Edge insertion: B2 E' B2 E (6)
X-cross: U2 F L' U' L (5)
2x2x3 block: U' R B' L U L' (6)
F2L #3: F R' F' B U' B2 R B R' (9)
F2L #4: U2 R U R' U F' U' F (8)
AUF: U' (1)

YAY

oh.. and did I mention that it took 6 minutes to find it and write it up?

3x3: 13.27, (16.28), 13.36, (13.08), 14.66 = 13.76
Better than average, but I had 3 U perms

2x2: (5.84), 3.99, 4.73, (2.63), 5.29 = 4.67
Fourth scramble was really easy

4x4: 1:12.31, 1:11.09, 1:10.91, (1:12.87), (1:10.58) = 1:11.44
My Meffert's is here! Bit stiff still, but better than my ES. Every solve had O parity

5x5: 2:16.01, (2:08.45), (2:35.76), 2:25.11, 2:17.50 = 2:19.54
I'm improving The sup 2:30 was due to a huge V5 lock up.

Sq-1: 28.76, 31.85, (38.47), (21.20), 21.71 = 27.44
Very good, considering I haven't practiced at all really this week. The slowest was H perm-U perm, and I used the alg I don't know very well

234: 1:30.28
4-14-1:12 For once I got splits that are representative of my average

2345:

PB for me My third ever try at FMC. The 2x2x3 was really obvious, but then I tried a variety of ways of doing the 3xcross. I then tried a variety of ways of inserting the last pairs, before forcing the PLL skip

A 32 move solution without any cancellations on the insertion! I had this all figured out at an hour and 10 minutes. So close to a nice result.

Look at it this way - you got this out of your system before the official competition - now you can do a good one this weekend. I did my disaster at the Ohio Open.

And you're the only one I know who can consider memorizing 9 cubes in just 20 minutes a disaster.
