We have a meet-up that plays the board game Go every Thursday from 6-9pm at Tropical Smoothie Cafe, 7101 W 183rd St. Tinley Park, IL.

I'm Matthew, from Chicago, IL and brand new to the SpeedSolving .com forums. Here's a few things about me:
I can solve 2x2, 3x3 ~30s, Clock, and 2x2 Blindfold. Looking to expand and get faster.
I do CFOP, and used most of the videos on Feliks's site, cubeskills.com
