I will definitely be going but is 4bld and 5bld going at the same time? Like can you do them both, or do you have to choose one or the other? Are there cutoffs for feet?

I just added this below the schedule. "From 1:00 - 2:30, you have all that time to do both 4BLD and 5BLD. You may do both events as long as you manage your time accordingly."

So yes you are able to do both events.

I also just added these cutoffs:

3x3 Blindfolded (15 minute combined limit for all three solves)
3x3 With Feet (3:00 Soft Cutoff, 5:00 Hard Cutoff)
Rubik's Clock :)30 Soft Cutoff, 1:00 Hard Cutoff)

FMC solutions:
32.33 mean, 2nd place
scramble: U' B U' D' B' D2 F R' U R L2 B2 D2 L2 F L2 F2 B R2 D2

on normal: L' // form pair
on inverse: L B' U' B U2 // 2x2x2
B2 D' B' R B2 R' // 2x2x3
on normal: D B' L B L' B D2 B2 R' B' R D' // to L3C

skeleton: L' D B' L B L' B * D2 B2 R' B' R D' R B2 R' B D B2 U2 B' U B L'
insert at *: [B' U' B, D']

final solution: L' D B' L B L' U' B D' B' U B D' B2 R' B' R D' R B2 R' B D B2 U2 B' U B L' (29)
scramble: ??? forgot to write it down so just take inverse of my solution

on normal: F2 // form stuff
on inverse: U R B' R' // 2x2x2
on normal: B L' B' D' B2 D' // 2x2x3
L' B2 L' // F2L - 1
L U' L' U B' // to L4C

skeleton: F2 B ** L' B' D' B2 D' L' B2 U' L' U B' * R B R' U'
insert at *: [B, D' F2 D]
insert at **: [F, L' B2 L]

final solution: F2 B F L' B2 L F' L' B D' B2 D' L' B2 U' L' U D' F2 D B' D' F2 D R B R' U' (28)

optimal insertions gives 25...
didn't bother to write scramble down, but here's the inverse of my solution

on normal: D L' F2
on inverse: F' // 2x2x2
on normal: B U' L' D U L2 // 2x2x3
on inverse: B D R D' R' // F2L - 1
on normal: Lw B L' B L B2 Lw' D' B D // to L5C

skeleton: * D L' F2 B U' L' ** D U L2 Lw B L' B L B2 Lw' D' B D R D R' D' B' F
insert at *: [D', L U2 L']
insert at **: [F' U2 F, D2]

final solution: D' L U2 L' D L U2 L' D L' F2 B U' L' F' U2 F D2 F' U2 F D' U L2 Lw B L' B L B2 Lw' D' B D R D R' D' B' F (40)

scramble had lots of pairs formed, I really should have been able to find something decent... at least the mean was good for me
