What you need to do:
- Reply to this thread if you'd like to: compete, judge, scramble, or spectate.
- Specify which events you'd like to: compete, judge or scramble in.
- Recommend an event that's not listed if you really want to compete in it.

It's better to find out sooner rather than later if there's going to be enough competitors, judges, and scramblers. If there aren't enough judges or scramblers then we can split the events so that different scrambles are used for two groups. It's much easier to organise this now with over eight events than on the day. ;)

Goals
- 4 judges per event
- 2-4 scramblers per event
- 4+ competitors per event (pref 8+)
- 12+ competitors in total

Proposed Schedule
10:00 AM Debrief Competitors/Scramblers/Judges of Schedule *5 min*
10:05 AM Reiterate Rules and common breaches that must not be overlooked *10 min*
10:15 AM Megaminx *15 min*
10:45 AM Square 1 *30 min*
11:15 AM 5x5 *45 min*
12:00 PM 4x4 *45 min*
12:45 PM 4x4 BLD *30 min*
01:15 PM Lunch *45 min*
02:00 PM 3x3 Round 1 Group 1 *30 min*
02:30 PM 3x3 Round 1 Group 2 *45 min*
03:15 PM 3x3 OH *45 min*
04:00 PM 3x3 BLD *30 min*
04:30 PM 2x2 *20 min*
04:50 PM Magic *10 min*
05:00 PM 3x3 Final *30 min*
05:30 PM Announce Winners of each Event

Please let me know ASAP if there are any objections to the proposed schedule.

Kind Regards,
Tim.

I can judge/scramble in OH and BLD.
Cheers :)

I can bring my webcam along if you want - so we can have a live broadcast of the competition.
Do we have an internet connection there? I can bring a video camera along (JVC) in any case. It'd be good if others brought along a video camera or two to get more footage.

Heh, are there any other 4x4BLDs? I'm sure someone can compete by "attempting" 4x4BLD if you want?

I will scramble/judge megaminx, because i suck at it.

How much will the venue hire be, if you don't mind me asking on a public forum?

Tim.

Tim, I don't really think Sunday is a good idea. Thats when they have the actual service. Maybe we could do it on the monday???? But yeah, the cost is $16-$18 for the full day. It is plausible that we could have the live broadcast of the comp, because my dad said we could look into it. Wanna have cct set up for displays???? I have it working on the laptop I use. About the 4x4BLD, we don't need an event for it, too much hassle, unless there is free time. I will probably have some attempts during the day, as well as trying to do a really big Multi ;). I also think that to be able to get a delegate, we Should try to get at least 12 competitors, since that is the minimum we need in an official one. Depending on the amount of competitors, the donation would be something like $2-$5.

If it is on during February and not march, I will have to be away for a bit of it, because of my basketball. I think that only 1 and a bit weeks is a bit short to organize a comp imo. if it were in march it on the labour day weekend it would be a good idea.

I see you changed the date back to Saturday in March.

Is it necessary to have 4 judges for some events? I think we should only have 2 or 3 stackmats set up, and use CCT as a display. Also - scrap snake as it isn't an official event.

Tim - would you be able to get internet there? Because thats the only way we can have a live broadcast. If you would like - we can have my webcam filming all day, but not streaming - I will bring along the webcam software CD so we can.

I don't have wireless internet. I could tap into some residential internet connections... but would need their permission. I think we should just focus on video taping the whole event. We can compress it and upload the entire tape if people really want.

4 judges would be preferable if there are 12+ competitors and if we're using 4 stack mats. I'll bring along two full size mats and two timers. I'll have my other one handy too...

We can make do with just 2 judges per event, but 1 wouldn't be enough. There would be too much waiting around etc.

Tim.

Tim, there is a wireless network at the church, i'm pretty sure my dad would let us use it. I don't really do 2x2, so i can help with scrambling/judging. I can also judge magic. I'm sure my parents would be happy to help judge if necessary.
