cuberoot. i know what you mean so far away. in in San Diego and it seems so far for me too. my plane ticket was $208 from United. so a big chunk of change for me, but its worth it to go! you will see all of the big names in Rubiks cubing there.

Actually, make that four. ME! :wink: Anyway, back on topic. I'd like to go to nationals, and I was planning on going, until I found out my plane ticket would cost over $400. So unfortunately, I won't be going.

I was almost able to plan for going but duty calls again and I'll have to miss the event. I was really hoping to swing this visit too.

Adam,

Are you bringing some surprises?

I'm pretty eager myself, There's an unofficial today at Stanford. I'll get to see how out of practice I am.

Well the competition is over. The big news is that Leyan Lo won the 3x3x3 speed finals and is the new U.S. champion. However, he lost his world record crown to Toby Mao who set a new world record of 10.48 seconds! Ryan Patricio finished second, and Toby third. Congrats to all!

I ended up going at the last minute. If you were there, you might have seen me pushing the stroller around and taking pictures.

Ryan, I second your comment about having the next one on the East Cost. Boston, New York, or Hartford would be awesome.
