Comments:

Very Nice Average, I do consider myself sub 20, but not consistent, at least, not as consistent as I want.

Not much practice lately. I know I won't be able to break the sub-20 barrier without consistent practice, so I will see how this situation develops. Unless I can find more time for cubing soon, I might have to temporarily drop the race until I do have more time to focus on cubing.

Nearly sub-20, really happy with this average. The 4th and 6th solve definitely ruined it, but they weren't that bad anyway. Hopefully next week I can hit sub-20 :)

I didn't make it =(. I didn't feel fully warmed up and gave it a shot. It started off pretty well, but I had several mistakes. I messed up an F2L pair on one, I had the corner twist on another. So close to graduate but not quite.

Just curious, what happens after you graduate and then compete again with a 20+ average?

Going Colour Neutral is proving to be quite a challenge...

Nothing happens. Once you graduate you are an alumni :)

I must confess that I have abandoned the project... for the 3rd time, I think. I'm hooked on big cubes for now. But I guess the better approach is to forget about the times for a long while and just keep solving on any cross color... with time you'll come back to your white times and you'll be more consistent because of the easier crosses you can get. That's my line of thought, at least. My only problem is that I cannot seem to be able to get the color scheme down so perfectly that I can be full cn at 4x4. This week I tried and I was barely below 2 minutes, instead of 1:15. I have to think a lot about the order of Yau F3E and L4C around the E-slice, I can only do that efficiently with white or yellow on my left. So, all my 4x4 practise is basically white cross.

A few close calls this round. @Agguzi and @Isaac VM are just one round away from graduating! And don't worry @bgcatfan you're real close, I'm sure you'll be graduating soon.

Admittedly I haven't been practicing CN lately, or much at all lately. CN practice is pretty frustrating for me as progress seems to be so slow. I'm not even entertaining the idea of CN on big cubes yet. Especially 5x5 and up. I always solve white/yellow centers first, then white/yellow edges first in reduction. It's going to be very difficult to de-program that, and I don't think the benefits would be worth it on big cubes. Better off to keep practicing and improving lookahead I think.
