First competition I go to :D super excited
Will there be a meet or something the day/night before? It takes 3+ hours to drive there.


The one competition I can actually go to and Anthony can't go....

Seth: Only if Shaden doesn't show up :p Why'd you skip Indiana?!?!

Trevor: Nakai Velasquez might be interested in the 5x5, let me talk to him and find out.

Ilkyoo: This is quite a drive for you! Has to be a good 5-6 hour drive. I hate driving the 3-3.5 hours it takes :p

I also would like it if there were 4x4, and I'm actually a bit faster *cough* than the others saying it... but that's not a reason I wouldn't come. :)

Why doesn't the "Contact Us" on the competition web page work? After I type in the captcha and click submit, it just refreshes the page with my message still there but the captcha blank. And believe me, I am getting the captcha right. :p I have tried it more than 5 times already, getting the same result each time. I do not wish to ask my question here.

So what happened? Did they just get burnt out on it?
You don't seem to understand - Jim is saying that up until recently, we were the only region to frequently hold those events. Now what has changed is that other regions are also holding them more frequently. (Nothing in the past few months, but Berkeley and MIT have them coming up soon.) But we're still doing plenty of them - we had 7x7x7 last weekend. (and 4x4x4 and 5x5x5)

I personally love big cubes. I'd love a competition where we didn't do any cubes smaller than a 4x4x4, but I just suspect that not many people would come to it. When it comes to speedsolving, my favorite puzzles are 5x5x5, 7x7x7, and square-1, in that order.

Of course, doing big cubes takes longer, so you often have to drop two other events to hold one big cube event. That's one reason why they're relatively rare.

Edit: Oh, and I'm sad to say that we won't be able to attend this one. :( My daughters have a big dance presentation a little before noon that day in Indiana - it's the first time my littlest one has been in it, so she's particularly excited about it!

I know this is a bump.
Is anyone selling stickers? I can't order anything online and really need stickers.

Don't really care about standard/bright unless it's 3x3.
3x3: half brights, regular or F2 almost all my 3x3 stickers are chipping off (completely) and need to be replaced.
Pyraminx: stickers won't stay on cube
Megaminx: can't tell difference between blue/purple, red/orange, and the 2 purples
2x2: purple side is throwing me off
I don't have that much money but I'll bring enough to pay for stickers.

I've got some Pyraminx stickers I'd be willing to sell you for like $2.

i want to buy an alpha cube at this comp....does anybody have an alpha CC, alpha V or alpha V-f they would be willing to sell or trade for a guhong (it's really good...cuts about 40, reverse cuts about 2/3 cubie, incredibly FAST)?
I have an Alpha CC that I'd be willing to sell, but not trade. Since it's lubed/broken in I would expect around $12. You can try it at the comp and see if you like it.

Bill is selling stickers there and they are really nice!

His username is radmin and his stickers are fairly cheap. I don't think he has pyraminx stickers, I might be able to sell you some though. Keyword is MIGHT.
