You didn't turn up :(
Meetup 9th April (2 weeks, Saturday)
DYK
-there must've been thousands at the meetup today, because we had 13 2x2 rounds.
-I won the first three, so Cameron wanted more.
-3 rounds out of 13 had decent scrambles, the rest were horrible.
-Cameron won 8 rounds, I won 4, and we simultaneously rage quitted the other.
-I rage quit a lot.
-he had a 2.44 (he said suck that rowe :p) and 2.99.
-I had 2 low 3 averages. We each had a few 1 singles.
-Zane's favourite event is magic.
-jline's card tricks suck and are instantly easy to cheat.
-some random knew lbl, another random knew how to solve magic, and another lady had kids who could solve it.

-I am never bringing a magic to a meet again.
-3 competitors means only 1 round allowed, so these are the first round results:
Tim: 3.80, 3.86, (3.11), (DNF), 4.69 = 4.12
Cameron: (2.69), 3.90, 5.28, 3.47, (8.09) = 4.22
Zane: (8.27), (5.43), 6.19, 6.40, 7.22 = 6.60
-The really easy scramble round (#12) results were:
Cameron: (1.63), 2.06, 2.69, 2.56, (4.08) = 2.43
Tim: (1.80), 3.36, 3.31, 3.72, (4.91) = 3.43
-McDonalds and Oporto were both closed, so Jeremy showed me how to get to Hungry Jacks 3 levels below, and ended up buying himself a cone.
-Team BLD is suddenly so much faster when you replace Brian/Jeremy with Tim Major (39 on video).
-I thought I didn't get that much footage at this meet, then I saw it was 63 minutes. :p

Nick, what condition is the 4x4 in?

-Tim taught me how to solve and scramble the magic.
-Tim, Josh and Jeremy scrambled the magic if it got tangled.
-I can solve the magic in 2.89 seconds.
-Cameron and Tim did a sub-3 2x2 team-solve. (One solved a layer and the other did the CLL.)
-Ninja and Jeremy were executing card tricks.
-Josh got a 5x5 pb of 2:42(+2).

-I guy was standing, quietly watching us pretty much the ENTIRE day.
