Square 1: 1:57.88
Individual Times: (1:11.17), 1:38.74, (4:37.03), 1:28.19, 2:46.70
Practicing for big cubes summer. Times over 2 min are because of difficulty of getting cube shape.

pyraminx: 8.78
Individual Times:
(9.84), 7.42, 9.56, 9.36, (7.03)
Time to get a new pyraminx. Lots of lock ups and bad lookahead. Why do I always change methods right before a competition? Some solves were with LBL and some were with OKA (I'm actually using OKA as an intermediate for advanced WO Beginner WO is way too inefficient). The scrambles were very easy and average could have been sub-7. I will suck at Big cubes summer.

3x3x3 fewest moves

D' R D L' U' B' R L2 = 2x2x3 block
L D' L' = good edges
z2 F' U' F' U2 F2 U' F' U' F' U F = finish F2L

I found very nice 2x2x3 but I didn't find good way to finish :fp

Total moves: 55 Pretty good After a try with yellow cross I found the 3 move cross on orange I should really learn a FMC method!
This was my solution with yellow cross...

I'm not very good either, but I had the same solution as you except I mirrored and inverted my COLL and canceled a few moves, and I used an insertion for the U-Perm, saving 2 moves on the swap itself and then canceling 3 moves. My post is in the middle of the 2nd page, if you want to look at it, 35 moves.

2x2: 3.43, 4.00, 3.50, 4.50, 3.91 = 3.80 3x3: 13.59, 17.80, 12.86, 19.15, 12.97 = 14.79
Ahhh, consistency... 3x3OH: 30.91, 30.75, 29.27, 36.53, 32.22 = 31.29 3x3FMC: 33 moves

This was a crappy backup solution I was forced to use after finding nothing better. There's nothing really special about it.

Sorry for bad copy/pasting with the 4th and 5th feet-scramble. I have taken care to check everything this week. Punishment will come upon me if I messed up again

Also, no weekly for me last week but I WILL make up for that this weekend
