September, 2014

It's been awhile since the last newsletter, but we plan to eventually get back to the monthly letters to update the community on WCA events, community news, and site updates. We think this will be helpful for the community. Below are a few updates from the last month:

Cubing ALS Ice Bucket Challenge ALS with a twist.

In order to complete the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Rubik's Cube Contest, you must be challenged to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. While having ice water poured over your head, you must solve the official ALS Ice Bucket Challenge scramble. You may then submit your result, along with a $1 per second donation to alsa.org.

You can get the official scramble for the challenge here and checkout Lucas Garron's attempt on the forum here.

Two speedsolving.com members put together live event coverage of the Indiana 2014 competition, which happened a couple weeks ago. 120 people attended.

Kit and Noah take on the role of sportscasters, giving you live commentary and exclusive coverage of the 4 person 3x3 finals at the Indiana 2014 Rubik's Cube competition. Nathan Bierema edited their coverage to look more like ESPN, have a look!
