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.

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.

Yeah most of the articles said the main persecution is towards people who converted from Islam.

As competitions return, I decided to update this thread.
As of Sunday, June 27th there are 6 WCA Local Championships and 1 National Championship scheduled.

QLD State Championship 2021

WA State Championship 2021

NT Championship 2021

ACT Championship 2021

North Island Championship 2021

Pennsylvania Championship 2021

Australian Nationals 2021

4 Championships in Australia, 1 in New Zealand, and 1 in the US
There were also VIC State Championship and NSW State Championship but from what I've heard those have been postponed. I imagine many of these other state championships will be postponed or cancelled in the coming weeks due to Australia's growing COVID-19 outbreak.
