Tentative events and addition of rounds will happen ONLY if we have enough time.
Of course, but I was referring to the rounds/events already on the schedule, which I don't think we'll have any trouble getting through.
I noticed in your UIUC schedule that it says
"7x7x7 Combined Final: one of first 2 solves must be under 7:00 to do average of 5"
but 7x7 is a mean of 3 event, and thus competitors only have their first attempt to get under the cutoff and finish the mean.

Good job.

Is this still going to happen?, because I would love to try and get down there. I only ask because WCA is being weird and when I click on the event a blank page comes up.
Also: (If above equals no then follow also equals no.) 3x3 OH?

I'm pretty sure it's still happening. You should probably contact Tim or someone about the missing WCA Page
And yes, there's no 3x3 OH

This competition is definitely happening; at the moment, the WCA site seems to be showing a blank page for every competition, not just this one.
As for OH, I left it out this time since it's held quite commonly, but I will probably hold it in the Spring 2013 competition.

I'll be there, but no OH? That is NOT cool. Sigh...
Sorry about that; it'll definitely be held next time (and quite possibly with two rounds to make up for this).
I can't add it for this one though; last time when we (at DC) added an event due to popular demand, it didn't work out well at all...

Plus, this delegate won't let the organizer add events, even if there is time.

Yay, I can definitely go! Wish there was OH, I've been practicing some lately. Will edit with goals later :)

Goals:
2x2: lol/lol
3x3: sub12.5/sub14.5 hoping I won't be too nervous
4x4: sub1:30/sub1:40
BLD: sub5 haven't practiced in a while...

Goals to make this happen over this weekend:
-Clean and relube my Lubix Lingyun V2
-Practice a lot :)

I may need to borrow a blindfold from someone. Also, I'm missing a corner cap on my Shengshou 4x4. Does anyone know where I can find one? I may end up having to borrow someones 4x4.
