On Monday, December 30th, in rural Southwest Wisconsin at a spot not especially convenient for anybody but me, will be the ultimate Midwest Feet competition. Small Cheese 2019 will have one round each of 3x3, OH, Skewb, 4x4 With Feet, and 4BLD, 2 rounds each of 2x2 and 4x4, and 3 rounds of 3x3 With Feet.

Bring all your new Christmas cubes and old Christmas cookies: I’ll be making a big pot of soup for everybody, but I might not have time to make dessert.

The floor is carpeted, lighting should be ok, there would be room for probably 80 competitors but we had to lower the competitor limit because of limited parking. If weather is looking good ahead of the competition there is a possibility of increasing the competitor limit, but so far there are only 7 people signed up.

Would go but I'm In Australia
What’s a short hop halfway around the world? Maybe you could carpool: @Faz it’s one of your last chances to get an official Feet result on your record!

I just realized
I think the reason more people aren’t coming is because there isn’t clock

There will be a clock on the wall. What more could anybody want?

beef soup is becoming a meme on cubing facebook
Lol. Good to hear. If it would help I can provide the name of the beef: it’s from a cow I raised on my farm.

I don’t like knowing my food’s names. ‘Thats Phil, and the beef is Sahrimmir’. Lol. Well, the less people that come, the more chance there is to get to know each other and have fun in a tight knit group

That's why I asked. It’s normal for me to know my food’s name, even respectful, but I get that it could weird some people out.

This is getting way too much like Milliways.

"Good evening, Madam and Gentlemen. I am the main Dish of the Day. May I interest you in parts of my body?
Something off my shoulder, perhaps, brazed in a little White Wine sauce?"

The soup will be delicious, but more importantly: is anybody else practicing 4x4 With Feet? It seems like it would be poor taste to win at my own event, particularly if it was by default because nobody else practiced. I’m planning on offering cheese as awards, similar to what we’ve done for the Big Cheese competitions the last couple of years, but offering cash prizes ($20) for anyone who sets a new WR single or mean in 4x4 WF. Current records to beat are 2:19.18 and 2:32.08. Jacck Member This is getting way too much like Milliways. "Good evening, Madam and Gentlemen. I am the main Dish of the Day.

I've done a bit of practice but probably in the 3-4 minute range

Yes. I mentioned the outside area, but I wouldn’t organize an unheated comp in Wisconsin in December. It should be fine.

I'm definitely interested in going, but it's a little far for me as I usually don't go much past Madison.
I'm practicing Feet a lot for Josh's competition, so I'll definitely do a little 4x4 with Feet.

We need more feet solvers! Only 3 signed up so far. There need to be more people in order to have a statistically significant chance of breaking the 10-second barrier for Feet.
