This is another desperate attempt to find some other cubers in California.

Would be cool if we could meet up somewhere where we can do some cube races and stuff. I still don't really know any cubers in real life so if you are in the area or live here in CA just post here so we can meet up or something before or after the US Open. I'll be willing to bring my StackMat and my cubes just bring yourself!

California's a big place...but the two main nuclei are somewhere at Berkeley and Caltech. Well, actually, Berkeley's out for summer so it's pretty scattered. Try talking to some of the Caltech guys, I guess, because they're in so-cal already.

Well, I live in Orange County, and would be willing to get together. Did you, like, completely miss Caltech spring and San Diego 2007? I assume if you didn't consider those, you're in northern california, and thus I can't help you. If not, though, I'm down.

EDIT: I just realized, looking at your WCA profile, you hit both of those. Hi, you may remember me. I'm the tall redheaded guy who got DEAD LAST in OH.

lol, I think I saw you man, I sent you a PM before reading this so disregard my cluelessness.

If you remember at all, who was competing, I was wearing a black jacket to both of the competitions and also in the SD 2007 OH round I had a green shirt with a star on it, lol. And I dropped my cube twice...

Tyler Mall Cube Meet 7/18/09

What: Cube meet
Where: Galleria at Tyler, 1299 Galleria at Tyler, Riverside, California 92503
When: 11 A.M. (until we all have to leave)

Steven (MrData) and I are planning a cube meet for next Saturday. Everyone is welcome to come. Please send me an email at [email protected], post here, or send a private message if you are planning on coming. This way we can get you our phone numbers for you to contact us with in order to find us.

We are planning on doing a small unofficial competition just for fun aside from the usual activities. The events so far are 3x3x3 Speed, 3x3x3 OH, 3x3x3 BLD, and 2x2x2. Feel free to suggest some more!

Also, we are having a special guest cuber: Tyler Hakomori, blindfolded solving extraordinaire, for which the mall was named after. He'll be there all day to amaze you with his blindfolded solving skills.

Hope to see you there,
-Daniel

One of the prizes awarded was $5 donated by a random person during the 3x3x3 Marathon event. The winners of the marathon events took home $2.75 and $2.25, respectively, due to my inability to do math. Also, first and third place for the 3x3x3 event received a free can of energy drink, Mona Vie for being in the right place at the right time.

uhhhh... wtf!?

WAI?

I didn't even really know there was a meeting today. Why'd you put me there?

And Tyler and Lennon are on there also? Looks like you're trying to make it seem like more fun than it actually was.

Haha, it's just a joke man. I needed a 3rd place so I put in some cool guys to fill it out. But the cube meet was tons of fun. Can't wait for the next one with you guys.

Apparently, I'm the only speedcuber in town. I saw this guy on the news from my town at nationals, but that was a while back. Any one near bakersfield?
