And 2x2 should run faster than 30minutes (first round)
27 people. Lets say, 15s. 5 x 15 = 1 minute. 1 minute per cometitor, so 27 minutes. However, many competitors will be sub 10, some sub 7, sub 6, so on. Some events we can regain time.
FMC and Multi are both mentally draining events, I think it'd be better just to have 6x6 and 7x7 paired up with FMC, or do as Dene says, and pick between events.
I propose on your schedule, that FMC and 6x6 and 7x7 swap, so that FMC is the first event, and possibly to have rego run throughout FMC? That way people can not turn up until near the end of FMC, register, and continue with the rest of the schedule, because lets be honest, FMC is one of the most boring spectator events, so this way people don't need to be there for it.

Edit:
Registration 9:00 10:30
FMC 9:30 10:30
2x2 10:30 11:00
3x3 11:00 11:45
4x4 11:45 12:30
6x6 12:30 1:00
7x7 1:00 1:30
MultiBLD 1:30 2:00
Lunch 1:30 2:00
OH 2:00 2:30
BLD 2:30 3:00
3x3 3:00 3:20
5x5 3:20 4:00
2x2 4:00 4:15
4x4 4:15 4:30
OH 4:30 4:45
3x3 4:45 5:00

This gives more time I think, (you could move everything back 30 minutes, and then the comp would end at 4:30). However, we don't neccesarily need to end at 4:30, so we have 30 extra minutes for interruptions and stuff (4bld best of 2 for example)

Ok firstly we are having two groups for 6 and 7 because only me and Faz can scramble and I need to use Faz's 6x6.

Secondly:

Registration 9:00 9:30
multi 9:00 10:00
6x6 9:30 10:00
7x7 10:00 10:30
2x2 10:30 11:00
3x3 11:00 11:45
4x4 11:45 12:30
Lunch 12:30 1:30
FMC 1:00 2:00
OH 2:00 2:30
BLD 2:30 3:00
3x3 3:00 3:20
5x5 3:20 4:00
2x2 4:00 4:15
4x4 4:15 4:30
OH 4:30 4:45
3x3 4:45 5:00

multi starts straight away, if you want to do 6x6 you have to finish in 30 mins which I don't see being a problem for anyone doing both events.

FMC starts halfway through lunch but everyone still has 30mins off.


And for sorting out all your crap I still want a second round of 5x5 ktnx.

Dene's works^
I vote for this^
Arnuad will prolly try 3, so he'll be fine (unless he decides on 1 more, which might happen)
Only problem is Faz, who's trying 7+. Faz is slow at multi, so I guess you could do Faz's 6x6 during FMC?

Well, if we can only start setting up at 9, then I still think we should use Dene's schedule, but just make it half an hour later

Registration 9:00 9:30
multi 9:15 10:15
6x6 10:00 10:30
7x7 10:30 11:00
2x2 11:00 11:30
3x3 11:30 12:15
4x4 12:15 1:00
Lunch 1:00 2:00
FMC 1:30 2:30
OH 2:00 2:45 (Start OH R1 while FMC is on - Most won't take the whole hour, probably 30 mins for FMC)
BLD 2:45 3:15
3x3 3:15 3:40
5x5 3:40 4:20
2x2 4:20 4:35
4x4 4:35 4:50
OH 4:50 5:05
3x3 5:05 5:20

Plenty of time to pack up

If it seems we're running smoothly, and are ahead of schedule, there might be time for a 5x5 final for Dene, but put that in before 3x3

I just bought one of those wifi modem things today that will allow up to five connections (within about 15 metres i think). Given that it is prepaid its probably not for all day surfing but if anyone wants to access these forums or do any other shortish internet stuff during saturdays comp then just come and see me. All you need is a device with wifi that supports wpa security.

Good Morning everyone. The forecast for Melbourne today is max 20c and lots of rain. The Melbourne cube day has officially begun. There are four lads kicking off precedings with the multi blind competition. Tim is going for 2, Arnaud - 3, Faz - 7 and Zane 11. After that we have the 6x6 and 7x7. Updates throughout the day....
