This thread will be dedicated to the discussion and announcement of new championships. Notable championships include those released by the WCA recently on July 20th.

Very exciting that Asian Champs is being held in Kazakhstan. I didn't think that Asain Champs would be held outside of the Eastern Asia, or in any of the "Stan" Nations, but I'm very excited to see how the competition goes.

Almere, Netherlands will be the 2nd time World Champs will be held in Europe for the past 3 Championships.

North American Champs has been pushed to 2022 and is still going to be held in Toronto, Canada

CubingUSA Western Championships got pushed back to 2021 and is still being held in Provo, Utah, on June 25-27

Only 2 other competitions are currently scheduled in the United States right now, both being non-CubingUSA championships.

Tri-State Championship 2020 will be held in Atlantic City, New Jersey, on November 14-15th

Pennsylvania Championship 2021 will be held in Hershey, Pennsylvania, on August 20-21st.

Danish Championships 2020 is being held in Roskilde, Denmark, on September 4-6th.

Swedish Championships 2020 is being held in Huskvarna, Sweden, on November 13-15th.

To my knowledge, and according to the competitions page of the WCA website, those are currently the only Championship competitions that are officially announced.

Christians are persecuted in Kazakhstan to certain extents
What proof do you have of that? You can't just say that.
Christianity is the second most followed religion there. This is a wiki extract.
Christianity in Kazakhstan is the second most practiced religion after Islam. There are 4,214,232 Christians in Kazakhstan (according to the 2009 census). The majority of Christian citizens are Russians, Ukrainians and Belarusians, who belong to the Orthodox Church in Kazakhstan under the Moscow Patriarchate.

Not to start a debate or anything but Open Doors USA's World Watch List (which ranks the 50 most dangerous countries for Christians in the world every year) has Kazakhstan as the 35th most dangerous country for Christians and it is color coded in orange which means "Very High Persecution".
Then how do you explain Christianity being the second most practiced religion?

From a quick Google search, it seems likely that most of the more traditional Christians as viewed from Kazakhstan, such as the Russian Orthodox, are probably not subject to much persecution. It seems that most of the story examples of persecution that are easily found are of proselytizing denominations from the West, or of converts from Muslim communities.
