Just when you thought I was gone, I'm flying back to Georgia to delegate ANOTHER ONE!

Jacob and Katie are organising another competition for you guys!!
If you haven't noticed, each and every Athens competition has had innovation at it's core basis. All three of us enjoy bringing non-conventional fun comps to everyone!

This time, it's a two day competition with almost ALL WCA EVENTS.
-There will be no multiBLD

The schedule will be posted on the site soon, and it's been announced on the WCA site!
We hope to see everyone there!
The competitor limit is 60, and the registration fee is $15.

I think the reason Multi isn't being held is because in the southeast, there aren't many people who can multi except for Ray.

Additionally, we don't have a side room (except the closets LOL), but I would be totally okay with holding it if time permits.
Originally, it's not in the schedule because Jacob and Katie didn't list it, and I trust their decisions as organisers.

Ah okay. I feel like Multi without a side room wouldn't work so well. Other blnds work fine on a main stage if you don't suck at scheduling. (Let's do 3x3 R1, then 5bld, then 2x2 R1 :D) but I feel like multi really wouldn't. Again, haven't hosted multi yet, but eventually.

Sidenote, for cutting score sheets ('cause that seems to be a reoccurring thing on your blog) if you don't already have one of those rotary paper cutter things, get one, 'cause it makes life literally 1000 times better. And yes, that's hyperbole of course, kinda taking away from using the word literally. Because it's not literal.

Thanks for the advice! I just looked it up, and I can see the utility in that.

With my last two comps, I used a trick that James Hildreth showed me, so cutting and sorting is a non issue now, thank goodness!

As far as running things go, I hope the Chris train is ahead of schedule and arrives at our destination ahead of time to possibly add a few passengers to the rounds and more rounds to the train! Might I recommend for everyone to stick around to the end of day 1, awards are gonna be 10,000x better on this Chris train :)
