I almost got on official 4x4 BLD success, but on the second attempt I inserted a wing letter pair in the wrong side and I forgot to do the Corner parity alg. If it was not for that I would have had it. One of the other attempts was off by 2 centers and 2 wings, which I guess I forgot the order of them.

I tried my first official MBLD attempt at the competition and I only got a 3/10 which was really sad because 4 of the cubes were only off by either 1 flipped edge or 1 flipped corner. Had I gotten those cubes right I could have qualified for Nationals.

Just DNF'd one of the easiest scrambles ever...by BD flipped edge missed in memo. Would have been pb by 10 seconds.

1. DNF(52.15) R2 B2 L F2 R D2 B2 L U2 B L2 D F' D2 U2 L B2 U2 Fw Uw'

Not sure of the memo/exec splits because I was using stackmat, but probably memo pb, maybe even sub-20.

I attempted my first ever 6x6 BLD solve and it was a pretty bad fail. 50:34.67[32:21.98]
I was off by 2 inner and outer x centers, 4 obliques, 3 midges, and 3 wings. But hey, I got the corners solved right:D.

I really enjoyed it, and now I really want to keep trying it to eventually get a success. I also need to work on commutators for 4x4-6x6, since at the moment my execution is pretty slow.

I was doing a 3BLD solve in front of about 50 people for the Auckland workshop talent show. I forgot about a single flipped edge and DNFed.

I finally beat my 53.xx PB 3BLD Ao12, but with a counting 1:37. I didn't see realize I already had one DNF and went extremely safe on the twelve solve to guarantee I got a Ao12 and ended up ruining what could have been a low 40 Ao12.

If the final solve was a 0:40, Ao12 = ~0:42, if the final solve was a 0:50, Ao12 = ~0:43, if the the final solve was a 1:00, Ao12 = ~0:44.

First 4BLD attempt, right mess. Think I did one of the 'tricky' algorithms wrong. I think it was for the target q, I rotated to avoid B moves, but never rotated back.

Edit: Third attempt at 2 cubes for multiblind. 1 right again, 1 wrong by 2 corners! I bet I could do more cubes, I just want to get 2/2!
