Whenever this thread pops up on the front page i keep thinking of that Pokemon Rapidash...
Looks like the renaming of the competition was successful.

Hmm live results doesn't seem to be working properly. Can't see any results for many events (3x3, BLD, 5x5, etc).
This is a 2-day event, so half the events aren't done yet. I do wish they'd add Daniel's 5x5x5 BLD result, though. Nothing stopping you from doing it now - not everyone has to finish a round before you add results to cubecomps.

Just added 4 and 5bld results so far (from memory, so will check later today). Chung (2 wings) and James (undid parity setup move wrong) both had very close attempts. I had a lol 4bld attempt in which I forgot to memo corners (sub-1 memo), and realised it half way through my first centre comm. Video available ofc.

I'm just going to start off the did you know part of this thread.

"BUT HOW?" you all ask, since I was evidently not in attendance.

Well. DID YOU KNOW?

I realised that actually the competition was this weekend, and not next as I had incorrectly written down and only realised in the afternoon after seeing Mikey E's photo on Facebook. To add to this moment in which I was in a slight frenzy, I was also dressed and ready to go to a wedding and spent most of the afternoon and evening cussing to myself for being a complete muppet.

Gutted to miss out on seeing you all, hope it was brilliant!

DYK:

- That I'd been looking forward to this competition for months?
- That I was really worried on Thursday that I possibly couldn't go?
- That I was really gutted when I realised on Friday that I really couldn't go?
- That I tried all day yesterday to find a way to be there today?
- That I hadn't eaten whatever it was that made so ill?
- That it's really weird to see the live score sheets with my name on it, but knowing the times will remain empty?

DYK:
Most of my results were fail averages with decent singles?
Lol @ magic?
I apparently eat too much fast food?
Yet am not fat?
Thom thinks football is for gays?
To say otherwise is offensive?
Rowan solves cubes with his face, to get a better look at them?
Huddles-cuddles?
Lol scramble for 3x3 round 2?
In H2H I didn't realise Odder had a +2 for ages afterwards?
Dan's BLD records... 2 down, 2 to go :D
Rob is beast at feet!!!
I didn't get a single 3x3 pop today? XD
Though I did get quite a large 7x7 pop which took me ages to put back in?
Dan forgot to memo corners?
Mollerz should have got a 4BLD success?
My counting OH times were very consistent, and all should have been sub 40?
It's nice to go to a competition close enough to go home after the first day and drive back the next morning?
I really need a new 4x4?
And 5x5, 6x6 and 7x7?
The cubic 7x7 is awesome?
Leon has improved a hell of a lot more than I first thought?
Cubing burns off lots of calories?
Dan could start a new exercise programme, trying to stand up straight wearing all his medals?
My clock is NOT THAT BAD!?!?!?
Though it apparently needed 2 people to scramble it?
I met yet more awesome people at this comp?
Can't wait for the next one?
Yay for cheesy and clichéd DYK ending because I can't think of anything else?

Music from Bethany's room?

DYK...

  • My car stereo overheated on the drive down - too much breakcore!
  • The M25 is different to every other motorway: it has its own rules and its very own category of id10t drivers
  • I was obsessed with the arrival of my roommates and so couldn't hang out a James' house on the Firday night
  • Arnaud, Zoé and Geert arrived just before 4am!
  • Very little sleep and an early start for FMC!
  • Guildford on-street parking is LOCKED-DOWN!!! Don't even try!
  • It was so good to meet everyone again
  • Can't remember anything else about the Saturday events!
  • We got several hundred people into the car for the trip back to the Travelodge - I think Oscar and Joey got the most uncomfortable journeys
  • The McD evening was good: some food, some fun, some obscene innuendo...
  • I had a 9000 calorie (estimated) desert that proved most amusing - and tasty!
  • Great to see Jude again :)
  • Missing Charlie :(
  • I described to Oscar, with great detail, the dangers of a hot apple pie and he fearlessly went at it!
  • I learned 3 OLLs due to Joey's perseverance
  • Oscar is the very best of company
  • "It just needs more lube" - Oscar's solution to any problem!
  • We sacrificed 3x3 feet for additional sleep - a good trade-off I think
  • I can't remember anything of the Sunday events
  • ...except my failure to get a sub-30 3x3 avg -- too messed up!
  • Sunday lunch plans got elaborate with shotgunning cold cans of baked beans (just plans mind you)
  • Andrew did seem to have an endless sequence of fast food meals - how does he remain looking so healthy?
  • So many people are so good at speedcubing!
  • Special mention to Hannah with her 15.xx 3x3 solve -- she arrived on crutches - full props to Hannah's mum for bringing all the kids - we have a proper family event here
  • I enjoyed solving the mad cubes and the Pyraminx Crystal (have to buy one now!)
  • Arnaud, Zoé and Geert: I hope your drive home was safe and easy
  • I improved my Dutch considerably but also was reminded that some of it is not so intuitive and there is much to learn!
  • Long drive home - lots of roadworks without any actual work going on :rolleyes:
