If anyone's interested in coming and needs a place to stay, the venue is about a mile from my house and I have space for 8 or so people to stay. Several cubers have already said they're going to stay with me and I have a few spots left. Airport pickup can be arranged as well. Just let me know. :)

Anyway, the "after party" will most likely be at my house. We'll order pizza or something and hang out here. See you guys in 3 weeks.

I just transfered to Iowa State, so I'm going to go to end up going to the Chicago Open instead. One of these days I'll make it back down to Texas for another competition. By the way, I switched away from my silly freestyle method for pyraminx and dropped to sub 9 averages in a couple days, so thanks for the advice, heh.

It's a shame you can't make it, but I look forward to seeing you sometime in the future. Also, I told you you'd be much faster if you learnt a "real" method. :p What did you end up going with? Oka, LBL, or something else?

I'm gonna go ahead and start off goals.

3x3 - sub 19 avg. Sub 16 single.

4x4 - sub 3 minute.

3x3 OH - NO DNF'S!!!!

3x3 BLD - Success.

Pyraminx - sub 25

Not going to compete in megaminx.

Over all -
*Have others test my hybrid.
*Have a ton of fun.
*Have my best time beat Anthony's worst and William's avg.

I'm gonna decide on goals (if I can go) much closer to the actual competition, I'm going to do a lot of improving (mainly 3x3x3 and 2x2x2) before then.

I guess it's obvious that I must beat the disgraces that are my 3x3x3 averages from last time... :)

btw Anthony's worst average will probably be 13.xx. :p

I was going to start off with goals in my last post, but they really depend on what happens at TOW the week before. :p As of right now, I'd be happy with any new 3x3 speed pb. As for OH, I want a sub 27 average, at least. I think it's about time I get a sub 4 2x2 average as well. With 6 rounds combined at TOS and STO, I doubt that'll be a problem. :p

Over all -
*Have others test my hybrid.
*Have a ton of fun.
*Have my best time beat Anthony's worst and William's avg.
*I want to test one! :)
*Fun is guaranteed, especially since you'll be here all weekend. :D
*I consider that a challenge. ;)

btw Anthony's worst average will probably be 13.xx. :p
I think he meant for his best single to be better than my worst single, but I might be wrong. If he means average, I'll try to make it difficult. :p

I wish I could go so badly. I live up in austin so i'm about 6 hours away :C
I've had to drive up to Austin 3 times, and fly to Houston and Dallas once each. Come on. Get a ride with someone, at least. :p

And for the record, it's 5 hours from here to Austin. ;)

2x2- sub-7 if I stick with ortega for now. I still don't have the tensions set very well on my maru.
3x3 - sub 20 average/no epic fail solves like last time

4x4 - 1:30-1:40

3x3 OH - Maybe practice it once

3x3 BLD - Sub-9

Other - Be the only Viktor at the comp.
Be older than Anthony.
Prediction: 2/7 goals will be fulfilled :D
