Just a quick question... I live in Cincinnati, OH and I only personally know two serious speedcubers (though not as much as me) and one more that I taught that can solve in around one minute but refuses to learn fridrich... How many people in your general area (city, town, etc.) do you know personally that can speedcube?

None that speedcube, but a couple that can solve a cube. But I only know people in my school. And they solve in like 2 or 3 minutes.

There are two sub-25 cubers in my town that I know of (Justin Jaffray (Yalow) and Brendon Hemsley (Gurplex in Hi-games)) . There's an awful lot of people at my school that can solve the cube in a minute or two with the lame Dan Brown method, but there are very few serious cubers here.

well at least they can solve it in the first place.... I'm the only sub 30 (or 25 for that matter :p) cuber in my area... nobody to compete with because I can out match the other two serious speedcubers that I know of by about 10 seconds...



Hmmm... I just realized how much I use the "..." thing... LOL! I just used it again... darn I did it again. I gotta get out of that habit :p

yea in canada most comps are at toronto,, a few in alberta which is like 18 hours away :(
lolwut? There has been only one official Canadian competition in the west coast, the 'Vancouver Open Summer' last year. The only Canadian WCA delegate lives near Toronto, so that's why almost all of the Canadian competitions are there.

yea,, me to but i doubt there is going to be a comp in winnipeg for a while
Minnesota might be your closest option. And there's always the possibility of a North Dakota Open :)
where in north dakota then? it might take just a few hours to get there!! but i think ill wait till im like sub 30 before i go to a comp out off manitoba
Well, there's nothing yet. But it wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility if someone was interested in a competition over there. I have relatives in ND, so I go through there anyway. Plus, I keep track of competitors ZIP code, so I would know if I'm pulling a lot of people from western MN, they would probably easily go to a competition in Fargo or Grand Forks. I would need to see a lot of interest in western North Dakota before I held a competition there, but that actually would be quite easy, I would just worry about getting 12 competitors.

I like to joke that North Dakota will probably have a competition before Chicago :)

But for now, the Minnesota competition is the closest and does exist. So if you wanted to go to a competition, that would be your best bet. Just convince your parents to vacation in the Twin Cities, and spend a day to go down to Rochester (it's about an hour drive from the Twin Cities).
