Hey guys, was originally gonna post this on my profile so as not to clutter up the main page but the charecter limit on status' wasnt big enough lol.
TL;DR at the bottom

Road to AfR Kinchranks

While I am very much aware that almost every record in Africa is a bit of a meme compared to other continents, this is a goal that I really do wanna achieve.

The current kinch AfR holder is Conor Cronin (https://www.worldcubeassociation.org/persons/2013CRON01) who has an overall African kinch score of 72.28

Now me being a guy who loves lists I just had to include one here,
here are his official avg/means(with the exception of bigBLDs) followed by my at home avgs:

  • 3x3: 12.71(AfR 41), 12.20
  • 2x2: 3.55(AfR 12), N/A
  • 4x4: 47.02(AfR 9), 1:08
  • 5x5: 1:19.61(AfR 1), 3:00
  • 6x6: 2:39.95(AfR 3), N/A
  • 7x7: 4:28.26(AfR 5), N/A
  • 3BLD: 2:04.42(AfR 1), 5:00
  • FMC: 35.67(AfR 3), high 30s
  • OH: 21.80(AfR 21), high 15
  • Clock: 8.15(AfR 2), N/A
  • Mega: 1:35.39(AfR 11), N/A
  • Pyra: 5.28(AfR 5), N/A
  • Skewb: 5.37(AfR 6), 8.00
  • Sq-1: 20.02(AfR 3), N/A
  • 4BLD: 12:42.00(AfR 5), N/A
  • 5BLD: 31:34.00(AfR 2), N/A
  • MBLD: 3/3 13:15(AfR 7), 2 cubes in 17 minutes
Now right off the bat you'll notice many "N/A's" this is because of the simple fact that I dont have the cubes needed, another thing you will notice is that with the cubes that I do have I am very much behind on big cubes and the BLD events, and with this post my journey to kinchrank AfR begins.

I recently ordered a squan, clock, and a few meilongs for multiBLD so I can start working on those events, while I wait for them to arrive I have been working on my 3BLD, I recently completed a full letter pair list and have started learning 3 style(currently 68 comms in, and yes I am aware that im relatively slow at BLD to be learning 3 style but I am really interested in the event and I'm actually finding that learning comms is really enjoyable) I am hoping to finish learning 3 style and hopefully avging sub-2 by the time my cube order has arrived so I can start working on squan and clock, on days when I am not motivated to do BLD I'm working on 4x4(slowly but surely grinding to sub-1)
Obviously I still won't be able to practice some of the events as I do not have the cubes(namely 2x2, 6x6, 7x7, Mega, and Pyra) and that is a massive barrier that will be holding me back so I will make sure to get those puzzles ASAP.

And thats about it. Am I being too hopeful? Yeah probably.
Am I still gonna try? Definitely.

Thanks for reading, I will try to update y'all on my progress(probably on a monthly basis) It is gonna be quite the grind but I am really excited to pursue this goal


TL;DR I'm going for Kinch AfR and its gonna be a ton of work
