Overall favorite: Virginia Open Spring 2014. When I got my 18 second OH average (which was second place), it was one of the happiest moments of my life. Then they added a second round, and I was nervous cuz i thought i wouldn't get second place again. Then I got a 17 second average and 2nd place again. I was going absolutely crazy with joy XD Plus the comp was really fun.
Best results: Virginia Open Spring 2014
Shortest drive: River Hill competitions (less than a minute away)
Most people: Red Cross 2014

And you ended up 3rd :p

I'm not really sure what my favourite comp was, but in terms of achievement it was definitely Singapore Open 2014. Broke my first AsR there :D
Taylor's Cube Open 2012 and 2013 were pretty fun as well, they bring back many memories :tu
Also the closest one to me was Melaka Open 2014, but that was because I organised it lol
