I'm surprised that no one has asked how this is funded, how is it funded?
I put money from my pocket

Do I have to show videos for the solves? because my parents are strict about uploading videos online.

R2 F' U2 L D' L' D' R D2 U2 F2 L' D2 L' D' B' U' Solve1: 24.55 I use CFOP with 2 look oll and that solve was about my average. Full step with an F perm for the PLL.
L B2 U2 B' R' D2 R' B L B F' U2 L D R2 B R Solve:2: 24.42 I found an xcross with white and chocked my f2l but still managed a sub 25 with gperm.
U' R F U2 F' U2 F2 D' R D' L2 R' F D B2 L' B R' U2 Solve3: 28.90 really hard cross and decent f2l and oll. I had to do 2 look pll for the N perm.
Mo3 was 25.88. Not sub 25 rip.

That's OK. You won't be counted for the first prize, but will be included in the lottery ones.

I was going to ask the same thing. Thanks though for letting us know and for doing this. Much appreciated.

Did you solve the same scramble twice?

Oh no I may have accidentally miss copy pasted the scramble twice. I fixed it to the scramble I entered into cstimer

I probably spent way too much time on this, but hey, $100 is$100.

Can one person win more than one of the $100 prizes? Edit: also, are we allowed to scramble from any initial orientation to make it easier for the solver?

Max one prize per person.

I guess it's ok.

I didn't make a video, so I'm only entered for the "raffle".

Scramble 1: 31.42
Pretty good F2L, I used a SH to skip EO(I use 4lll)
Scramble 2: 24.02
Great time, smooth F2L. I got a dot for EO.
Scramble 3: 21.55
One of my best times ever. Ridiculously smooth F2L, I got to use a T-Perm(one of three PLL's I know)

Nice,
It's a world record so clearly the scrambles should be a bit easier than average.

Solve #3 was done on green cross, I do white. It was an overall easy scramble anyway.
