Looking forward to it!

Question: I'll be attempting BLD solving in competition for the first time. Am I suppose to bring a blind fold myself? What happens if I don't have one?

You should preferably bring one yourself, but if you don't they'll most likely have one for you to use (or you can borrow someone's).

I have a serious case of cooties so I don't think anyone would share with me! lol I'll look into buying one! thanks

And congrats on the 4x4 BLD NR! Do you mind if I PM you? I have a few BLD solving questions.

B1b1) Competitors must bring their own blindfold.

because you dont have a link to a wca profile and did not know the above [don't take that as negative] make sure your familiar with http://worldcubeassociation.org/regulations/#blindfoldedsolving

Thanks for reminding me to add my WCA profile! No offence taken btw. This will only be my second comp and first BLD attempt to I wasn't familiar with the official regulations for specific events.

just got back it was a lot of fun and my first competition. Best solve was 23 seconds which isn't bad for me so I was happy. I also quite liked Sarah's bear

And to think that I would have learned by now that pulling an all-nighter before a competition just doesn't work. Meh, I got one good 3x3x3 solve at least.

Thanks for the Brestconstruction!

IMO the U before the PLL was done as part of the OLLCP alg (I knew the AUF). It's hard to tell since I recognized the U perm during the last few turns of the OLLCP.
