Edit: Oh noes, I'm going to be in Baltimore for my break between March 8-15...
I hate my life right now.


If only I could stay in the area longer.

.-.


It's selfish, but if you could move the date by that, I would be eternally grateful. :)
I'd even give you a cube!~

I will most likely attend. I will try the 2x2 (recently learned ortega so I need practice), 3x3, and pryaminx.

4chan,
It's not possible. Sorry. March 13th is a SAT testing day.

March 20th and 21st are the only possible dates. Does anyone have a preference for one or the other?

If I really have to, I could move it to April 10th, but that means I will not be able to attend and it would be organized by others at my school.


EDIT:
Website link should work now. It contains the same basic text as the above post.

I'd love to go since it's been alomost a year since my last competition. I probably won't register until 2 or 3 days before though.

Shoot! Finally a competition in Maryland, and now I'm busy! I'll see what I can do to make it. If I do come, is it alright if I show up for maybe a couple hours in the morning and participate in a few rounds? It'd be nice if you could get me to finish my pyraminx round (or any event, for that matter) earlier than 1:00, because I need to be in Catonsville at 1:00. I mostly just want a new pyraminx average. My current one sucks.

Er, if it counts for anything, the day that I am absolutely free for the entire day is April 3. I don't expect any changes in the date to be made though, but just in case you're taking other dates into consideration.

Flee,

You can arrive early, do your solves on the side, then leave.
Alright, this sounds very nice. I'm so glad that's not a problem. I'm probably most likely coming in this case, unless something major holds me back on the day of the competition.

EDIT: So I just realized that if it's on March 21st, I can be there the whole day. That would be nice, but I guess I'm alright with the 20th as well. Also, on the 20th, I will not be able to arrive early, so if that means dropping a couple events like 4x4 or 5x5, that's fine too.

I mostly just want a new pyraminx average. My current one sucks.
I love how you're referring to the NAR lol.
Anyway..

Sub 3.68. kthxbai.
Yeah, the NAR average sucks. :p
Your NAR single, on the other hand, will be a challenge to beat with only 5 single attempts.

UPDATE: We can have the venue from 9AM-3PM on March 20th. Is the schedule too rushed?
