I'd still recommend paying the $10 and competing in 3x3 no matter how slow you are, though.

I didn't realize I'd be out of town, as I thought Easter was a different week. Alas, I will not make it.
Sorry to hear that. The timing is unfortunate, but it was really the only option.

On a related note, we would like to remind everyone that registration is set to close on Wednesday, March 23rd at midnight and that your registration is not complete until you have submitted your payment via PayPal.

Hope to see you all there!

Is anyone from Chicago going? Or someone who will be going through Chicago? (I currently don't have a good way to return to Chicago in time for classes on Monday without missing most of the Sunday competition.)

3/22 update: I found a ride! Thanks everyone! :)

So when i arrive were will registration be? also how do i register if my names on the competitor list and have already paid just sign in with my name? this is my first competition so I'm not quite sure. Also if I'm under 18 ( I'm currently 16 ) do i need to have a parent or guardian there with me at registration to ensure that they are ok with it? Please email back before the comp this weekend so i know.

since you already paid to go, all you have to do is during the registration time, go to the table and they will most likely tell you your heats or give you a name tag. the regestration is usually outside of the room in which the competition will be.

Here is the reconstruction of my 8.96 from 3x3 Round 2! This beat my official PB by 2.18 seconds and is the Iowa State Record. :)

Wow, I didn't look ahead to the end of the solve and that LL skip really came up on me out of nowhere. That's insanely lucky to get that in a competition!
