Lol. Not every event - no way.

I suck at bld, and I will lose sq1, pyra maybe, and maybe 6x6 and 7x7. The only events that I think I will win are 3x3, 4x4 and 5x5. Nick is getting good at 2x2, and beat me at a meetup recently.

I just logged on, tlo see the news, and I thought, "I wonder when the comp will be announced, and then this."

I can't wait. I can judge everything, and scramble 222, 333, pyra, square-1, clock, and probably a few others. It's late, and I have to get off, but I'll right back tomorrow when I'm not tired, to have a more serious post.

XD!!!!!!!

Edit: After doing a bit of computer clock, and liking it, if I decide to get a clock, and seriously practise, will I be able to do a quick side event of clock? Scrambling is very easy, and the round won't take long. If Johnson is still in Melbourne then, he has a clock, and might want to compete also. He averages about 30 I think.

Dude, it's not officially announced on the WCA yet...
We still need to sort out some displays from speedstacks.
Also, there will be no clock lol. Or master magic. No-one here has them.

Also, we probably won't need you as a scrambler, but if you stay as a permanent judge at a station, that would be much appreciated.

May be going?

If this is an official WCA comp then i will go. But if it isn't, then maybe.

I might compete in the 2x2-5x5, plus Magic, Master Magic (if possible for an event), Square-1 and Megaminx (If also possible for an event)

I can't be stuffed learning for pyraminx... Plus i've got exams now.

I might be able to judge for others at the station.

This competition will indeed be official - I will make sure it happens (by attending >.<).
Naturally I'll be there, I'll compete in all my usual events, and I will help out all day as always.

I desperately wanna know how Faz will perform in 3x3 :p Fingers crossed for the first sub-10 average!
I, along with quite a few others, will film both/all three (depending on how many rounds there is, most likely both) rounds there is, so it will definitely be on camera if he does. I should also film him in 2x2, as he had a 2.78 average at a Melbourne meetup recently.

I will try to make a lot of footage of the comp, for people interested. (of course I'll get someone to film some of my solves too)
