YEAH!!! HYPE!!! So looking forward to the comp and can not wait for it to come...well I can kind of wait since I need to practice but you get the point;)

Who is all going and what events are you going to be doing?

Cool! Best of luck with your events. What are some of your goals...if you have any?

I will be doing all 18 events (super hyped about that, since this will be my first time doing that), but personally, I will be focusing mainly on going for a 4x4 BLD single, MBLD single, FMC single and average, 6x6 and 7x7 mean, and 3x3 BLD mean...that way I can be a WCA Silver member:)...although I will be just as happy as a bronze member, if I can get a 4x4 BLD and MBLD single and FMC single.

Nice, and I am glad to see that you can make the comp. Best of luck with all your events, and you will do great. Even if you do not make all the cutoffs, just remember to have fun, meet new friends, and break PB's.

Main goals are to break as many PBs as humanly possible at the comp, as I’d like to shoot for WR for most PBs broken at a single comp, haha!

Other goals, get a BLD and MultiBLD, good big cube results, podium in Skewb, make 3 finals

If you can get that record (or at least in the top 5) then best of luck with that. I may try something akin to that since I will be competing in all events, but since I have not been able to practice much recently, I do not think that it will happen.

On a completely different note, I was just looking at my results from the Rocky Mountain Spring comp, and realized that my Skewb average put me at 4th in the state, with the average being 5.73! The funny thing about that is Camden Mathewson got a 5.72 average in the 2nd round which put him 3rd in the state and ahead of me by 0.01...RIP;)

It’s only big cause I’m signed up ;)
Of course @weatherman223, I am sure that @PingPongCuber meant you first and Kit as an after thought, but forgot to add you, haha.

Yeah this comp has been getting so much hype, I won’t be suprised if we do hit the limit.
I am expecting to have more then 200 people wanting to compete at the Colorado Qualifier, especially considering that at my comp I had close to 150 people (including those on the waiting list).

Ah, the first sentence was a joke, its a play on of the "its hot cause I'm here" meme.

Yeah, I wouldnt be suprised either if we surpass 50 on the waiting list, its a big comp, haha

Does anyone know if staffing applications will exist for CO qualifier 2019? Super excited for it, will be competing in every event besides bigBLD.
There is no staff applications for this competition, but Jordan rather is having every competitor that signs up to help out with judging and running (in regards to scrambling though I am not positive how he will work that out), Check out the "competitor responsibility" tab for more info on that.

What are some of your goals...at least for your main events?

Ah, okay. My goals are to make cutoff for every event (6 and 7 are gonna be a bit of a stretch for that), make 3x3 finals, get state record for square-1 (I average about 5 seconds faster than current SR with decent-ish scrambles), and just don't suck overall, I guess.
