I’ll do mine:

2x2: finish EG 1 before the comp, sub 2.5 average

3x3: hopefully PR (sub 9.7) average sub 8 single

clock: don’t embarrass myself, sub 17 average

Square 1: sub 13 average, don’t get 5/5 parities

Pyra: Sub 4.5 average, sub 3.5 single

Bld: beat Sam, sub 1:05

other goals: podium in at least 2 events, continue PR streak

Hyped for olde town parker tomorrow! I've been inactive on this thread for a while, so I thought I'd post my goals here:
2x2: sub-4 average would be nice, don't really care about 2x2
3x3: would like sub-11.5 avg, maybe sub-9 single if I go crazy
3bld: just a success would be nice, not looking for much more
Clock: been practicing this one a lot, sr avg would be cool, hopefully I can win
Sq1: I'd just like to podium, don't care about actual times a ton
Pyra: maybe pr, don't care about this event either

Olde Town Parker was a fun competition. I got to meet some new people and set some PRs. Here is a review of the events.

3x3: R1: 14.99 average, Pretty bad average due to nerves and bad scrambles.
R2: 13.67 average: This was a decent average, but I was looking for something a bit better. No 3x3 PRs this competition and I missed out on finals by 2 places.

2x2: R1: 3.60 PR Average, 2.69 PR Single, This was an absolutely fantastic average for me. Every solve had pretty good scrambles and good executions besides the 7. I am also happy about the 2.
R2: 4.65 Average, Pretty okay average for me. The counting 5 did not help, but it did secure a spot in finals.
R3: 4.84 Average, This was a bad average for me. I wasted the 3.2 at the start and ended with two 5s. Hopefully I can be sub 4 globally at 2x2 in the future.

3BLD: R1: DNF Average, On the first solve I got a 4:24, but forgot one corner during memo. On the 2nd solve, I forgot one letter pair during execution. Lastly, the third solve was a train wreck with 4 flipped edges. I am quite sad about how this went, especially the first two solves.

Pyraminx: R1: 10.63 Average, I do not practice pyraminx that much, so this was expected. I plus 2ed an 8, so that was not good.

Clock: R1: 25.63 PR Average, 20.53 PR Single, Great results in clock! The single in an overall PB and the average may be as well. I used a better clock for the average, so that is a big factor in this result.

Overall, Olde Town Parker was not my best competition, but I still got 4 PRs and almost 5. My best result would have to be my 3.60 2x2 Average. I was not expecting that. I will try and work to become faster for next time in some events.

Pretty decent comp overall I'd say. 3bld success (albeit in the first round only), decent clock average, finally a sub-4 2x2 ao5, couple of sub-10 3x3 singles, and uh, well, some motivation to practice sq1 more, heh. Excited for some of these upcoming comps, and I hope to have some more fun with y'all in future times.
