Hey, for any of you going to the competition this Saturday, do you have a decent 7x7 I could possibly borrow. Mine's missing a piece, and I don't think I could get it in time for the competition.

Okay, thank you! If I may ask, what type of 7x7 is it and if I barrow it, will I get I chance to do some warm up solves?
It is the Yuxin Hays M, and you are more then welcome to do as many warm up solves as you want, especially since I will not be doing any warm up solves, so you can keep it for as long as you need.

Also, you are more then welcome to adjust the tension to what you prefer. I am readjust it back, although I am not picky at all with how precise it is.

Here is what I posted on Instagram earlier:

"Excited for my 10th competition, and my 2nd as an organizer, Veterans Day Open 2019.

...I’ll be doing everything.

3x3: Weilong WR M. I tried the Gan for 3 weeks but it ultimately wasn’t for me, so I switched back. I average around 12, and a sub 12 average would be nice. If I can get a sub 10 single, that would be awesome.

2x2: MGC 2x2. Nothing special about 2x2. PR (sub 4 avg) would be cool, and get a lolsingle I guess.

4x4: Valk 4M Strong. I really like this cube, it’s smooth crunchy feeling makes 4x4 so much more enjoyable than using a Wuque. I average low 50, and getting a sub 55 average would be nice, bonus if it’s sub 50.

7x7: Aofu GTS M. Might borrow a Hays or Spark. I don’t practice this. Goal is to simply register a time.

Pyra: Bell. Bad event. Get PRs.

Megaminx: Galaxy V2 LM. Super good cube. Hopefully I can make cutoff. "

Awesome job everyone today! I will review how I did in the events I competed in.

2x2: 4.92 and 4.55 second averages, 2.82 PR single, 8th place. I did okay in 2x2. The one thing that made it less mediocre is the sub 3 single which is what I wanted for a while.

3x3: 17.41, 13.94, and 13.59 averages. 11.36 PR single, 7th place. I did great in 3x3 besides the first round. Both the second and final round averages were PRs and I got two sub 12s!

Pyraminx: 11.63 average, 8.20 single, 24th place. I did bad in this event. Nothing really more to say.

4x4: 1:08.82 PR average, and 58.59 PR single, 20th place. Wow! I did great in this event. I got my second best solve ever with the 58 and my average was better than my previous best single. I used someone's else's really good cube, so this probably contributed to it.

Megaminx: 1:44.00 PR average, 1:39.65 single, 11th place. I did well In this event with a 3 second PR average. I hope to put a lot of work in megaminx to hopefully be sub 1:30 at the next competition.

7x7: 6:46.43 PR single, 14th place. I got an overall PB single here by over 30 seconds! Really happy about it.

Also, Dylan Hughlett got SR for megaminx average and single with a 1:00.88 and 56.06 respectively!

Goal reflection:

3x3: sub 12 average would be nice. If I can get a sub 10 single, that would be awesome. All achieved. I got an 11.49 avg in R2 and 2 sub 10s: a 9.34 PLL skip in R1 and a 9.41 fullstep in R2. I placed 4th which was cool i guess.

2x2: PR (sub 4 avg) would be cool, Got a high 3. and get a lolsingle I guess. Is low 2 a lolsingle?

4x4: getting a sub 55 average would be nice, bonus if it’s sub 50. Only got a 56, :( but i still PRed so its fine.

I dropped out of 7x7

Pyra: Get PRs. lol no

Megaminx: Hopefully I can make cutoff. lol no

I dropped out of 7x7 kek

I was wondering if any of you know when the blind competition is to be scheduled for. I heard that it was in January, but I would just like some confirmation, so I know what blind events to practice. Thanks!

Well we are not yet certain when we will be having it. Currently we are trying to get some things figured out (such as having a delegte) that will or will not be available to have the competition, and once that is done we will plan on a date for a PBQ comp. Which a PBQ comp has all BLD events and FMC so you can practice them all if you want.

I wish I could give you more info on it, but unfortunately we don't (since again we need a delegate first).
