I wasn't planning on attending, but I noticed now BLD events were listed. Are there really no BLD events?
I typically add events the day of the competition. I'd rather add events than drop them. But at the last Wisconsin and the last Minnesota, BLD was added the day of the competition.

It depends a lot on turnout and volunteers, but I am usually able to manage to add events. The events are usually determined by the request of the volunteers, that's why we have Square-1 and Skewb.

Glad you were able to set something up in Minneapolis, good work. I'll try to make it, but it all depends on how my schedule works out.

Maybe not appropriate place to ask, but w/e.
I'm live in Minnesota, so it's pretty close to me, and I'm considering going to this.
I was just wondering if everyone that goes to competitions are pros, because I seriously don't want to show up there as the only person who gets more than 15 seconds or something.

You should go to a competition for fun, not to win.

I never expected to win, but I was a bit intimidated of being surrounded by all elite cubers.
I organize competitions and my typical average is not much below a minute. Don't worry, pretty much every competition will have cubers that average above a minute.

Yes, it IS a competition, but don't think about it that way. Use the competition as a way to network and as an opportunity to meet some really good cubers and absorb as much of their knowledge as you can.
