Another way is to go to "Die Weberei" -> http://www.die-weberei.de/
And its not far away from the Bremer Schlüssel. MAP
There it is realy smokefree, but a lot of people going there to drink and talk...


Its an nice location. I've been there a few times.
The "Event" on 24. should be in the second hall the have, so the room on the picture should be free. But i'm not sure.

...hmm... ok... its a little bit dark there :(
Maybe someone should first call them to clear all questions, if thats an alternative.

I'm very sad to announce that I won't be able to make it to the German Open.
Everything was planned but at the last minute, some hours ago, Joke Roels calls of sick, and she was the one driving us to the German.
I don't have a drivers licence and the third one, Sander Hendrickx doesnt have a car.
I apologies towards the organisation, and I regret deapply that I won't make it, because the German Open really is the most amusing tournement there is.

Just wanted to mention that I will bring four allready opened (and half of them lubed) Rubik's clock's to Gütersloh.
So if anybody is interested, I'd be happy to sell them for a reasonable price.

Here are the full results:
http://www.worldcubeassociation.org/results/c.php?i=GermanOpen2009

Also really nice World Record from Kai Jiptner with 10/10 in 42:06!!
Kai instead of Tim - what a surprise! And that was an amazing time, Kai! I guess Kai has just been practicing more than Tim has. But Tim's 7/8 was no slouch either.

And Kai, I'm glad to see you finally got that 10/10. Nice timing getting it in competition! :D

The nicest thing is that now we finally have a somewhat worthy multiBLD world record now. Kai's 10/10 is slightly faster than Dennis's old 10/10 best. So this was the best result ever according to the new rules, meaning qqwref can stop worrying about the record now. :)

Thanks Mike! The attempt was a bit awkward. I solved the corners of the 2nd cube at the end of the attempt because I didn't remember the first letterpair and went on. After quite some thinking I was able to reconstruct what it was and finish successfully. The attempt should have been sub 40 if that didn't happen. Btw Tim was off by 2 flipped edges (forgot to memo).
The rest of the competition didn't go that well for me. I had a really, really nice 1st round (hey I beat 2 sub-10 cubers :) ) but I wasn't able to keep that level for the finals. Bad screwups on 2 solves, minor screwups on the other 3 :p

I really enjoyed that weekend and I had a lot of fun during the whole time! Even if I did really bad at 3x3 and MBF (2/6) I had some unexpected successful moments like the third place at FMC and [insider] the first place at 4x4! [/insider] :D

I totally agree with Sébastien, the competition was so awesome! We had a 15 hours trip form Hungary so we were so glad to finally have some cubers around. :)

Overall i am happy with my results, especially for pyraminx, clock, BLD and FMC: it was my first competition with pyraminx, i learned how to solve it a week ago and managed to do a sub-10 avg. Clock was an ok avg but the 8.11 sinlge should have been the new WR but i had a terrible lock up at the end. Blind was unexpected, 1:33 is my competition best so far. Strange because i didn't practice that for more then a year now so this result was out of nowhere. Memo was around 35-36 and 4 edges were in place, 3 of them unoriented. FMC was the biggest shock altough scramble was easy i guess. I used Fridrich and got 30 which is a new NR. :)

If anyone interested, here is my solution:

Scramble: D2 B2 D' L2 F2 L2 U2 L2 F2 R2 U R B2 D' R' F R' U2 R2 B

X-cross: [R2] D F'U L' F2 R F (7)

2nd pair: [R2] U2 R U2 R' [U'] L' U L (7)

3rd pair, 4th pair, OLL: U' F R' F2 U F (6)

PLL: R2 B' R F2 R' B R F2 R2 U (10)


30 moves in total but since PLL is an A i guess it would have been sub-30 with insertion. Also congrats to Clémant who did 29 which gave me a 2nd place with 30 moves. :D


I had a really nice time and i would like to say thank you for the organization team!

Also congratulations for everyone who competed! ;)


This weekend was legen... wait for it!

This competition was really much fun. So cool to meet everyone again. The atmosphere at this competition is better than almost any other competition!

they are back! The did you knows:

did you know???

- Joel Spang from Luxembourg is a really cool guy?
- He is another Gilles vd P lookalike???
- He tought me some more Luxembourgish? (machst du de geck mat mir??)
- There were actually 7 Luxembourgish people on saturday?
- The most important one was missing? :(
- The Smart is pretty smart when it comes to parking?
- It is sadly limited to 140? If you go downhill you feel it breaking down automatically...
- If the Smart honks to get Arnaud awake who is in front of him, the girl that was in the car standing next to Arnaud thought he honked at her?
- She actually honked back to him???
- Joey now has houses in Belgium and Holland?
- Arnaud and Lars are just there to keep them clean?
- We love to wave at random people?
- This did-you-know list is not really chronologically categorised?
- Joey and me were cubing at Schiphol today?
- We helped the police there to solve the mystery of the left-alone-trolly?
- There is always adventures in Schiphol?
- Joey and me concluded that 2 and 3 quarters out of 4 toy shops in The Hague and Leiden sell cubes?
- One shop in Leiden was crazy enough to ask 40 euro's for a V-5???
- Sadly someone was selling chinese fake V-7's at the puzzle market on Saturday?
- Mini Diansheng cubes are not that slow?
- I average about 12 to 13 seconds on it?
- It is now my main cube for BLD and first round cubing of normal tournaments?
- My competition PB with it is only 12.19 (see first round results)
- I almost got my 2nd best BLD time with it (1:51) in competition if it wasn't for 2 edges that had to be flipped?
- I got 2/4 on multi because of a total of 4 corners that were flipped?
- Speaking about multi... mr Kai Jiptner is a crazy mother****?
- He solved 10 out of 10 cubes right???
- Tim was pissed because he missed one cube at his 8 cube attempt?
- Arnaud is not called by the judges at Arnaud anymore but as 'pink pyjamas'?
- Speaking about dressing up, Rama, Joel and Ton were the best dressed cubers ever at a tournament?
- We all want to see the pictures of this, but you can already see Rama on his finals video?
- For Ton these clothes helped a lot since he got a PB on 4x4 of 1:08?
- I deserve some sleep now?
- I hope other people will continue on the list? :)

- We shaved Arnaud's leg?
- Arnaud actually wanted to spend the night in the closet?
- We managed to fit 5 people into a room that wasn't really that big?
- Joey's socks are awesome?
- 'She' said way too much?
- Arnaud wonders what scum is and why you'd want to put it in a bag?
- An experiment is not a record attempt?
- Two girls did not know the above and ran away in fear?
- Erik mecht den Geck mat mir?
- Erik mecht den Geck mat everyone, and should stop saying that? ;)
- Arnaud misplaced his balls?
- I beat Hakan in Megaminx?
- My megaminx solve in competition was a complete disaster?
- The Kia might be gone but the girl is still out there?
- The other girl looked way too grumpy?
- One-handed cubing on the roof of a Smart is actually not that smart?
- Traffic jams should always be fun?
- Erik can now safely say 'bird' in Luxembourgish without having to worry about offending somebody?
- Kai was nearly hit by Arnaud's balls?
- I DNFed my 2nd 4x4x4 attempt because Erik broke his WR?
- I could go on and on because GO 09 was awesome?
