DYK...

the quality of cubing was crazy high?
from the tiny amount of time I spent in the venue it seemed that everything was taking less time than it possibly should?
fantastic organisation?
Joey doesn't need other runners?
my girlfriend does exist?
she almost beat Tim at 3x3?
and got her pb avg of 5 in the process?
in just a few oneupmanships time Ollie will owe me a space station?
Dan and I can be beaten at pool when enough time and alcohol are applied?
Billy didn't appear to require assistance beating us in the end?
Dan lived up to his fuss ball reputation?
if Sambuca has been alight for a while you can burn your mouth even after the fire has been extinguished?
I thoroughly enjoyed my weekend?

Thank you everyone. Especially Dan, Billy, James and Chris.

Pyraminx average - yep
Clock single - yep
Clock average - yep
Also 7x7 which I didn't expect
DYK...
...Mega average cutoff was 2:30. I got 2:30.xx and then 2:30.xx :(
...I can't pronounce Pyraminx
...Had a bet with Ollie and lost very very badly
...Ollie finished all three 5BLD attempts before I finished memorising my first
...He will get WR eventually, there's no rush...
...I used an advanced M2 case in MBLD (thanks for the help Ollie!)
...People thought I got 33 in FMC
...It's still a mystery to me why
...I got all three 7x7 scrambles correct (which Chris doesn't find impressive)
...I got OLL parity on all 5 of my 4x4 solves
...I got OLL parity on all 3 of my 6x6 solves
...Everybody's really good at 7x7 because SS mini
...Nobody got a 5BLD success
...CHJ off by 3 centres iirc, amazing rage reaction
...Laurence says my 5x5 sucks :(
...But I beat him by 1 second
...1.96 2x2 WR (well done again)
...I am so slow at 2x2
...I wish I didn't suck at 2x2
...Still no 3BLD success!
...I broke my 7x7 all time PB single and mo3
...7x7 AfR by one second
...AfRs are a little bit easier to get than ERs apparently
...Alex will get WR
...Laurence taught me premoves (thank you Laurence)
...Joey showed me an awesome H-perm (thank you Joey)
...Ollie gave me a stickerless Zhanchi (thank you Ollie)
...4th place in Clock
...Final only had three people (why guys? why not 4?)
...Mollerz almost Clock NR but got a DNF on the lost solve :(
...And lost by 0.01 seconds
...Made new friends <3
...Comp was really well organised! Can't wait for Cuthbert's :)

One of them was sub 7.
7:01.xx, 6:3x.xx[2:38], and an 8:xx.xx of some sort. Silly execution mistakes.

EDIT: OH, and thank you for lending me your cyoobe :)

Comp was awesome as ever, bit disappointed with my results, but I had a great time. Always fun going to Guildford. Don't really have enough DYKs to do a proper thing, so just a couple of things;
I take full credit for Ollie getting 2nd in MultiBLD
When he did his NR 4BLD solve, I was judging. Either Matt or James told me about it, and I thought they said 2 minutes 15. Got a bit overly excited, almost seemed like an anti-climax when I saw the actual time.
I hate the new timers.

There should be a rule that 'one' is just a vertical line to avoid confusion.
The judge was me, I've always written 1s like this, and from my experience of judging in various European countries that writing is definitely more widely used than just the vertical line. So IMHO if we were to add a rule, it should rather be that we must add horizontal bars on 7s (I've seen on another scoresheet this weekend a 7.71 where the first 7 had no bar and the second one had one; that one was really confusing).

Anywat, congrats to Sameer.
