I would like a T-shirt, simply because I've never had a cubing T-shirt before :(
Don't worry Amos - you can have one of mine. I have a couple of cubing T-shirts that are very special to me but I also have a couple that I feel good about gifting. So there's one for you, one for James (that one's actually special!), and one for Andrew (if he still wants one!). This has got me thinking about T-shirts - perhaps I'll bring some random non-cubing T-Shirts to give to random people.

Aww thanks! Though I don't think we're the same size :p

I'm thinking of ordering some V-cubes. Basically I want the white 5x5 and 6x6. Wondering if anyone happens to want a new white 7x7 because it would benefit both of us if I bought the whole set and sold the 7x7 on. It would work out at £30 inc. shipping, rather than the usual £35 if you buy one on it's own. If no-one is interested I'll just get a new 7x7 for myself so that I can do multibld 7x7 :p

ME ME ME ME ME!

EDIT: Also, I was thinking about doing a group combined order for dayan 444s on lightake. We could all chip in and buy 5-9 Dayan 444s for around £13-14 each (we wouldn't save THAT much money, but still we would save money).

It's not going to happen. :) If you guys will have a sub33 sum I will be surprised.
I think there are good conditions for that though;

Rob will have just competed in Euro (right?), firstly giving him more comp experience considering what little he already has, but also meaning that the UK Open will feel a lot smaller and lower pressure and thus he'll be more likely to get good results (and a good result for Rob would be sub 10.50).

Breandan often does well under pressure (Worlds anyone?) and the UK Open will have a one-at-a-time final as it always does, with only a few people in. Plus he's improved a lot lately (sub 9 avg 100) and is doing better under 'personal' pressure (9.57 avg on vid).

The main thing for me is that all 3 of the 3x3 rounds are on the first day. I have an awful habit of burning out by doing thousands of solves on the first day and being really tired for the second. If you look over my competition history it's the one day competitions where I do well in more things, and in the 2 day competitions I do better on the first day. It'll also be my first competition after two pretty big competitions in North America, both where I put a lot of pressure on myself because at the time I thought they would be my last competitions full stop. Plus I've suffered quite badly from PLL case variance (a ton of Ns and G perms in the past 2 comps), but that's just me being *****y ;)

So have faith! <3
