Q+A session. Sorry about the poor quality sound:

Ah, we were hoping to upload this on the UKCA channel.

Is it ok to do so and credit you in the description?

EDIT: Actually I think we have our own footage so not to worry.

Incidentally, Can anyone remember who ran the table cams for the final? Really need to get hold of that footage for editing.

I know that :p It was right in front of me. There was also another camera next to the display. And on the other table.
Marcus Tejano (thelunarbros) did the table cameras and filmed the blue side. He has a lot of footage to go through I would imagine and he said the file sizes would be pretty big so I recommended wetransfer for moving them over to you.

Feel free to use any of the footage from my SD card. I'll hold off doing any videos of the finals, leaving you to edit and upload to the UKCA channel.

Hey guys,

Thanks to all of the organizers for the great work they put in to make this weekend happen, and to everyone that judged, ran and scrambled for us. The end result was that we were often ahead of schedule and we received compliments from parents about how well the competition was run!

I'm quite sad that I missed the second half of Sunday, but I became quite ill and I've been bed-ridden for almost two days now. I suspect it was the Tesco chicken from Saturday night.

Looking forward to seeing the finals :)

Some issues with this -

"Robert Yau, who is 22 and from Guildford, prevailed at the Forum in Stevenage town centre against competitors from 19 countries. His average solving time was 9.38 seconds."

No mention of Ciaran at all in the article. I know he's not British but his average was nearly a second faster :/

"Callum Hales-Jepp used his toes to solve one of the baffling cubes in 42.89 seconds – over 17 seconds faster than the old record."

?????? The mean NR was 7 seconds faster, so unless this is a typo idek where they're getting their numbers from.

(removed one cause I realised it meant UK Champion title not competition wins)


Other than that, decent article.
(pls correct me if I'm just being stupid)

You don't seriously expect anything you read in the media to be fair or accurate, do you? :)

Anyway, Ciaran knows how it works, and Rob won the UK title by prevailing over competitors from 1 country :)

Yeah I know the news is inaccurate but it's kinda insulting to Ciaran that they just completely ignore him like that. I'm not by any means saying Rob doesn't deserve any of it, just saying they should at least mention Ciaran.

Omg xDD

I'd bet they have no idea there was someone who came in faster. They will have seen the awards and it won't even have occurred to them that there was a faster competitor from outside the UK. Hence their statement that Rob prevailed over 19 countries. I do agree it's unfair to Ciaran, but that's the media for you. At least Ciaran's achievement is recognised in the community, who are the only people who really care anyway.
