2x2 - Don't care it sucks
3x3 - sub10/sub13
4x4 - sub 1/dun care
5x5 - sub 2:10/2:15 (I hate 5x5)

I suck at all the other events so these are probably the only ones I'm gonna do as usual. I only care about 3x3, bored of getting failsolves in comp.

So this will be my first comp :)

Expectations? lol... hmm

2x2 - Not sure if I will bother..
3x3 - Ave around 23-25... a sub20 single would make my day.
4x4 - Well.. I will have a go but im not fast enough for Ao5 :/ my PB is like 1:37.. Will do it anyway just to get a time on my WCA profile.
5x5 - No where near enough time for me to practice for this lol.

Other than that I just wanna watch others, meet new friends and pick up some tips. Im pretty new to the cubing world.

Two questions... Is it ok to attend on the first day if I'm not competing in anything that day? I just wanna hang around/watch/meet/cube etc... is that cool?

Also, if anyone wants to share a room i'm really up for that. PM me!!

Look forward to meeting you guys. Or seeing you again if any of you are coming to the London meet!

Billy
