US Nationals and Open 2008 (usually called US Nationals 2008, abbreviated to US Nats 08 or Nats 08) was a national speedcubing Championship held at Underground Atlanta in Atlanta, Georgia on Jul 19-20, 2008. It was organized by the Caltech and Berkeley Cube Clubs headed by Tyson Mao and Bob Burton, and sponsored by Winning Moves.

Trivia

One morning before the competition, Bob Burton was almost robbed in the restroom with an iPhone. The crime rate in Atlanta has led the organizers to remark that they will never again hold a competition there.
