Awesome! We'd love to have you!

I'm afraid I won't be able to make any promises. More than likely we won't be adding any events. If we do add events for some reason, it won't be until much closer to the competition (2 or 3 weeks before). The goal of this competition is to offer events that appeal to the hard-core cubers, to provide them a chance to compete in events that we normally don't have! We hold 2 competitions each year with all of the normal/popular events. This is an "extra" competition for us.

I must say.. I am surprised that you're travelling from the states if you're only competing in 3x3!

How many attempts of FMC do we get btw? I'm excited to get clock and FMC records in the database, and also hopefully BLD and MultiBLD!

And you should hold another one of these specials next year too, because by then the 'hardcore' cubers will start practicing more of these big events more since we know we can compete now .

Depends on number of people doing FMC and number of competitors overall. We will likely do 2 attempts. One option we have is to do one before registration starts in the morning (so like 8am-9am). What do you think people would think of that? If we do this we MIGHT be able to squeeze a third one in. Not everyone wants to do 3 attempts though (since they each take 1 hour), so I'm not sure!

Not exactly sure. It WOULD be cool to get a mean of 3 though since I MAY be able to pull off a sub-40 average (And Sub-35 single since I get 3 solves ). Would be a lot of work though, 3 different FMC attempts would be exausting other people have done it though, it's not often anyone getss the opportunity! I'd definitely be on board with it if it happens though and I'm sure lots of other people would too.
