Mads: It seems that if we can get past Flensburg it's +5° and dry all the way. I didn't find a good weathermap but I looked at a couple of cities. Hamburg, Bremen, Osnabrück and Enschede.

I'll be arriving at somepoint in the morning in Eindhoven. I could do with some help (and possibly company!) getting to the venue. Maybe I could meet you guys when you arrive at the airport?

Sure! See you on the airport then! :)

Will you be arriving from Budapest (just an intuitive guess)? Probably easiest just to spot you coming out of arrivals.

Yes, we are arriving from Budapest at 12:05 with Wizzair. :)

Ok cool...I'll see you then. It has just started snowing here in Britain so there might be a problem with flights. Hopefully not though. If I'm not there at 12 then just head on - I've probably been delayed!

Did you know?
HOI MET ARNAUD
TWINS - lars/daniel oliver/dick
Arnaud likes women from the next door building at 3am when he is wearing no clothes
Ron broke the emergency exit light with a juggling ball
Charlie got a sub 20 average. 2 years late.
Charlie bit my finger.
Charlie is a unicorn.
We are going to candy mountain.
Arnaud has to get off facebook.
Arnaud couldn't access facebook all weekend and is still scratching and displaying other signs of irritation from this trauma.
Arnaud couldn't get the enegiser bunny girl to come.
We play with Rubik's cubes, we cannot deny it - Oliver
The playground is the best place to have the winning ceremony.
Table tennis is a very addictive game.
A Dick without balls is just a dick.
There is always room for one more, for example in a 4 person car. 7 people from venue to Rotterdam = interesting.
WARUM!!
Joey and Charlie have amazing Dance moves to go with Karsten's harmonica playing.
Arnaud's details are all stored on Charlie's phone. All of them.
Brother from another mother (father).
Joey has a sister. Her name is Charlie.
Kai has a really quiet microphone on his laptop.
CHIN.
Being woken up with a dance (begin de dag met een dansje, begin de dag met een lach. Want wie vrolijk kijkt in de morgen, die lacht de hele dag. Jaaaaa die lacht de hele dag) by Karsten.
One girl two cups. One girl one shopping bag.


More as we think of them.

Resultwise the worst competition for me in ages except for 4x4 where I finally could stay calm and get somewhat times like at home. Pops and locks cost me winnings in 3x3/6x6/5x5/pyraminx.
Got a bit closer to get a 4x4 BLD, 'only' 4 centers wrong, but wrong is wrong...
It was a lot of fun though, Macky ist just awesomely coolnessness.
Did you know?
- I scared Macky big time by fake-kissing him?
- How gay are you today?
- The harmonica blues is there to stay?
- Some of us didn't like lunch on sunday even though we had lovely 'kroketten' (crusty from the outside, lovely warm soft meat on the inside)
- A pop on PLL in round 2 cost me a 10.21 avg?
- The level of BLD was amazing? (3rd place still had sub-1:20!)
- Tim WAS the one who farted?
- Spongebob blindfolds just rule?
- Jaaps teraminx was so much better after one solve?
- Tom's mini 5x5 is just cuteeeh?
- Nora did an outstanding performance on 3x3 getting a 16.34 average???
- She probably is in the top 3 of fastest girls in Europe?
- Beer doesn't affect 7x7 times even while taking breaks to take a sip during the solve?
- The playground is not just for kids?

I see Henrik Buus Aagaard got his first 5x5 BLD success in comp :D
And Macky took back Japanese NR single with 8.50 :O

Yep I finaly got it. And it is my slowest solve ever (out of 4 sucesses my PB is 27 min)

The 5x5BLD made me part of a very small group of people who has a result in all events including single and average results. (I think we are two)

Uhhh nope!

Mike was the first to have a single in every event, I was 3rd in that category.

Mike does not have Feet avg. sorry I thought the same but Joey proved me wrong. The first to have a result in everything including avg's was Yunqi Ouyang:
