TimMc: uhh, half an hour for 3x3 round 1? You said we'd be running 4 timers, and I expect a turnout of at least 30, so maybe make that one hour. Yeah this schedule is really cramped :s I blame Tim Major for making it. :p

Also 4x4 and 5x5 cutoffs should be 1:30, and 2:30 this time. At nationals lots were getting faster, and more time was wasted.

Pretty sure I will be able to make it.

God I wish I could have so many comps so close to me! I'm jealous!
We are only fortunate enough to have comps about every 2 months in Melbourne now thanks to Mr Epic McMahon.

Why don't you try setting up competitions yourself?

@Feliks: The schedule is still a work in progress. I've reduced the cut-offs. :)

@Dene: sq1? >.<

The venue is kind of in the centre of RMIT so it's a bit harder to get to. However, there is an entry from Franklin Street along a lane way. I'll just put posters up everywhere on the day with arrows. :p

Tim.

Dene: I'm actually working on that, but thankfully I'm blessed to live near Mike Hughey and he usually organizes them. The problem I'm getting right now when trying to set one up is that there are too many (3 in ohio, columbus, dayton, columbus, which columbus is an hour away from dayton lol). So I have to wait until things settle out (but I really want one closer to me before the new year starts so that way Mike can still have one after the new year :D:D)

:eek: OMG. I have to practise 2x2 for another 7 hours in 1 day or I will come last, and Tim Major's dad will beat me by 5 minutes. :p

I might be able to get sub-1:30 on 4x4, but 5x5 cutoff is impossible for me.

FMC sounds fun, so I will probably enter, even though I'll fail (I avg about 60. :() 6x6, 7x7, BLD and multi - no way. I'll enter everything else, though. :)

I must beat Nick in 2x2.

I showed him this :p
(Btw, my Dad isn't doing 2x2. He's sub 1 now, but he'll compete in 3x3 if when the time comes, I deem him fast enough :p)
Can't register until I'm uncapped, so that's why I'm not rego'd yet.
