Hey all, I just wanted to drop a line and say hello. The veterans day open 2019 results are showing some pretty impressive times, good work to all who competed! I started cubing when i went to college at the School of Mines back in 2008, feel away from cubing for many years and now i have a young cousin who is interested in it and it's getting me excited and motivated to start turning fast again. I look forward to chatting and learning from all of you. Cheers,

@cubeshepherd Hey! Previously i was only a 3x3 speed solver and i solved all the larger puzzles just for fun. I really like the mechanics of large cubes but never took to them for speed, just the puzzling aspect. I do want to start speed solving either the 4x4 or 5x5, i've always like odd sided puzzles more for some reason. I also like the mega and gigminx. The cousin is local and is just barely learning to solve but like all the young guns on the forum i can tell he's gonna take dive deep and be faster than me in no time; we're going to try and go to the next local competition together!

Hey, really impressive avg for all events @VDO on the 9th. If I had the practice and the puzzles (working on getting them, I have only budget stuff atm) I would've loved to compete. I wish those pyraminx/ megaminx/ 7x7 owners knew how frustrating it is not having them to practice with T-T.
you can get some really good budget puzzles espessialyy for pyra the mr. m and for mega the mgc they are both reakky good for really cheap they are also magnetic wich is great

Yep looking forward to when we can officially announce the competition. Hopefully that will be in the next few day once the delegate for the comp approves everything.

Also, for any and all interested people that would like organize a competition, please let me know and I will see what the best way to host it is. Currently I have been talking to a few other interested people and there is a pretty god chance (depending on if we can get a delegate) there will be a February, March, April, May and July comp (although again that is depending on if we can get a out of state delegate to come.

I can co-organize a competition if it helps the community on one of those events. I just need experience, advice, and training before I organize one on my own. In addition, it depends if I have time to co-organize one of them. Also, what events are we looking at for the January competition? Thanks in advance!
