I had a great time at this competition. Along with almost everybody else, I didn't do as well I would have liked to but it was still a blast.

If I didn't meet you at the competition, sorry. I would have liked to talk to everybody but with practicing, judging, and scrambling, I didn't get to socialize as much as I normally do. It's good to hear that this competition is probably going to be held twice a year though. So if I didn't talk to you today maybe we'll get a chance to talk at the next competition.

Overall, great job to David Sanders and Andrew Kang for organizing the event. You guys did great along with everybody else who helped.

Oh yeah...Megaminx in the next competition. Just sayin'.

Awesome comp! Can't wait for the next one, but we need a steady food place lol. My current 3x3 bld success rate is 71.4% and the number ten slot is 75% :( so close!

DYK

-Karate chopping the timer is loads of fun

-You don't get mugged when you have a 6-foot, bearded and tatooed man with you

-I suck at team solving (Andrew is a witness)

I'm (extremely) tired, but I'll do some DYKs.


Did you know?

-Finding the venue was rather traumatic for me.

-I didn't have time to eat at home, so I brought some easily accessible foods, and my breakfast was composed of half a jar of nutella mixed in with enough coffee grounds to make a pot of coffee.

-I still took 2 caffeine pills?

-After taking off my (multiple) good luck charms I began to get really good cases?

-I got FOUR +2s in my magic average?

-Scrambling cubes get's really annoying, really fast.

-I was second to last person to go during finals, so everyone was staring at my last average?

-After my fourth solve, I yelled out, "THREE PLL SKIPS IN A ROW WOWOWOW".

Only three? :(
I messed up ZBF2L on the first one, and the last one, I misread the edge cycle, and I ended up having a U Perm. Dx

I don't think people noticed my PLL skips for 5x5 or the first few rounds of 3x3.
Their attention was more on Andrew. xD

That was a great competition. I had tons of fun, and who knew organizing was sooo much work!?!
Still thanks to everyone for coming, and thanks for the help from Chris and Andrew. And Andrew, you did a GREAT job delegating. Especially with your choice of certificates, they are very official.

A few DYKs...

-That Chris Tran's good luck charms actually cause an aura of bad luck when he has them on?

-I got a very terrible average as my final average, but a very nice single to finish it off?

-Getting lucky is definitely not a crime?

-Andrew Kang got a 7.xx solve and everyone went crazy, but then the few people who knew it was just practice went "AWWWW"?

-I cubed the whole competition with a bandage around my right hand because just two nights ago I split my hand open?

-A very young kid got a 13.xx single?
