Hi, everyone!

For the third year in a row, the New Albany Open is on! This year's competition is going to be the best one yet :D It will be the same venue as previous years, and I am definitely looking forward to seeing many familiar faces, and of course lots of new cubers!

Here's the event list:
2x2
3x3
5x5 OR 7x7 (Competitors must choose one)
3x3 Blindfolded
3x3 One-Handed
Pyraminx
Skewb
4x4 Blindfolded
Unofficial 3x3 Head-to-Head (if time permits)

Delegate: Kit Clement

P.S. A potential sponsorship by the one and only Lubix is in the works! More details to follow :)

Great competition, thanks organizers! I got some great times here: 17.17 on 3x3 (avg ~23-25), 8.67 on Pyraminx (avg ~15). By the way, whose car was that out front with the "SPDCUBR" license plate? That was awesome.

Naturally, we would have a data entry error in the final round of 3x3 that determines podium.

Lucas's third solve should have been a 12.75, not 14.75. Nathan, you owe Lucas one 3rd place certificate :p

Apologies to both Nathan and Lucas for this mistake.

That was mine :) I also got some Rubik's cube plush toys that are hanging from the rear view mirror. Kit's license plate...ohhh, that deserves one heck of a gj.

I'm glad you all enjoyed the competition this year. I liked the smaller size this year-I actually got to meet and talk with everyone!

I might be at the July michigan comp, and I have a good chance of attending nationals...can't wait!!

Oh, yeah, I broke a bunch of official records yesterday :
3x3- 11.36 single, 13.02 avg
5x5- first time competing, 2:05 single, 2:12 avg
2x2- 3.86 single, ~5.28 avg
Pyra-9.72 avg

And Kit...I'm waiting for those DYK's you promised me!

Results are posted. Scrambles are here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/xv4ige1vsr6dpl9/AAC_RNHZ65ByDC5nZPvvV6Lba (Dropbox link will go dead, PM me if you want me to update the link.)

DYK:

Nathan stole away my 1st place in BLD? :p
I actually got a 2:28 3BLD solve?
I did that using POOP?
People thought I pooped my pants when I said that?
Checking for correct scrambles is apparently really hard for some people?
That not checking scrambles results in rounds being invalidated?

DYK:

Mason perfectly predicted the top 4 7x7 averages?
I had an epic pop on my first 7x7 solve?
When they called me up for 7x7 my cube was halfway scrambled?
I didn't know from which angle to do one of my pyra algs, so I just did it at random angles?
There was a 3 move x-cross on yellow in oh?
