Okay, cool. :) I think I'll probably be like 50 minutes. Sadly, my solution would be lucky to be under 45 moves. :(

I'm kind of sad that there are only 2 rounds of 2x2. I'm nervous. I NEED TO GET SUB 4.

Anyway, this'll be a great comp.

Estimated time requirements

I'm assuming that we'll have 8 stations, 2 scramblers, 2 runners and 8 judges.

Code:
Registration			30
6x6		Combined Final	19.75
7x7		Combined Final	27.89
fmc		Final		60
2x2		First		25.78
3x3		First		50.69
4x4		Combined First	46.25
mbf		Final		61.19
Lunch				30
oh		Combined First	27.92
bf		Final		23.67
3x3		Second		14.94
5x5		Combined Final	45.28
2x2		Final		5.69
oh		Final		8.89
4x4		Final		12.08
3x3		Final		5.56
Awards				30
Required time: 8 hours 46 minutes
Available time: 9 hours

It looks like we'll be able to run the events one after another. Any thoughts?

Tim.

But we'll be doing stuff at the same time as FMC and multi right? Because no one does those events and it'll be boring as crap sitting around waiting for them to finish.

Since you're having a lot of judges, if there aren't enough (likely) I can step in. I'd be happy to do it for the events I'm not in (6x6, 7x7, BLD and Multi). If I do need to, I'll try to be better than I was at Aus Nationals...

It's difficult to run them at the same time when some people are in both events.

How about:
09:30am 10:30am 6x6
09:30am 10:30am fmc
10:00am 10:30am 7x7 (Arnaud, Jeremy, Luke clashing with fmc)

mbf... >.<

le sigh, I can't see a way of running some of the events at the same time with the amount of overlaps. >.<

Groups:
09:30am 10:30am fm g1 - Cameron, Garvin, Minh, Minh, Riley, Tim
09:30am 09:45am 6x6 g1 - Feliks (3min), Jeremy (5min), Luke (4min) , Arnaud (4min)
09:45am 10:00am 7x7 g1 - Feliks (4min), Jeremy (7min?), Luke (4min), Arnaud (8min)
10:00am 11:00am fm g2 - Jeremy, Luke, Arnaud
10:00am 10:15am 6x6 g2 - Nick (5min?), Brian (5min), Dene (4min)
10:15am 10:30am 7x7 g2 - Nick (8min), Brian (7min), Dene (5min)

The above would save 30 minutes.

I don't really want to hold mbf over lunch >.<

We can work around fast competitors (or even those that can't make cut-offs), who are doing nearly every event, by grouping them and overlapping where possible.....

This might cause a lot of confusion on the day though >.>

I think it should just be fmc or 6x6 and 7x7. Adding 30m onto the comp for 3 people...
Or couldn't we just have 6x6 and 7x7, 1hr. FMC, same hr, and if you wanna take the full hour for FMC, then you can't do 6x6 and 7x7? Maybe have FMC starting, then if you have say... 20 minutes left after FMC, you can do 6x6 and 7x7?

My idea, and I think it's perfectly reasonable, is to just run the events as per the original schedule, and when you are called up for a 6/7 solve, you simply leave the FMC area, and then go do your solve, and come back.

They might get DNF on their FMC solve for communicating with other people during their 6x6/7x7 solve... >.<

Yea no way we are going to try and manage that.

Not up to me but with a one day comp and doing fmc, multi, 6 and 7 people are going to have to pick their favourite.

Or, you could run FMC, and MultiBLD at the same time, and once the 3 people (Tim, Arnaud, Minh) finish their multiBLD, they can go and do FMC. Personally, I think this is much better than messing about with groups and everything for 6x6. It would only affect 3 people, which is the same as the old idea, but I suppose extra time could be added for Tim, Arnaud, and Minh, if they needed it. It could be run before lunch, so that if any of the 3 go overtime, we wouldn't get behind on the schedule. However, I think Tim, and Arnaud would only take about 20mins for their multiBLD, if that.

I am volunteering myself to judge for the extra time.

EDIT: Yes, this would work very well.
