Competition in Austin, TX

Postby thebrokencube » Wed Aug 13, 2008 6:37 pm

Hi guys,



So after much hard work (and procrastination), we in Austin finally

got our act together and are going to host a competition. It will take

place at the University of Texas at Austin on August 30, 2008 (Labor

Day Weekend). All the information is available at

http://texasspeedcubing.org/2008fallcomp.php .



So you may be wondering to myself, 'Hey, why would I want to come to

Austin for a competition?' Well, here are a few reasons:



1. You go to UT Austin and want to meet and compete against other speedcubers.

2. You like speedcubing and want to support us.

3. You live in Texas and want to compete in a speedcubing competition.

4. You like speedcubing and want to support us.

5. You don't live in Texas, but would like to travel to Austin and

experience the greatness of the town (if you're over 21, 6th street is

a great hangout :))

6. Did I mention that you like speedcubing and want to support us?



Since UT Austin is a huge university, there's a lot of potential for a

good crowd. Plus, it would be a great way for us in Texas to have a

competition (it's been a while since there's been a big one in Texas).

As of right now, it's still unofficial, but if a WCA delegate would

like to come *hint hint* it would be awesome.



So if you're interested, please register and come to our competition!

And if you have any questions/suggestions, please shoot me an email at

sapan.upadhyay@gmail.com. Thanks.

Allright, so I've given it some thought, and apparently, 2 weeks is not enough time notice for anyone to seriously consider coming to this competition (duh). Therefore, I am postponing this competition until later this semester. That way there's at least a better chance of people being able to come to this competition. I will let you guys know when it is. Thanks for the feedback.

Hi guys,



We announced a while back that we were going to have a competition in
Austin around Labor Day weekend, but we had to cancel it because of
some problems with scheduling with the venue. Well, those scheduling
problems have been taken care of, and on top of that, our competition
is going to be official! It will take place at the University of Texas
at Austin on November 1, 2008. All the information is available at http://texasspeedcubing.org/2008austinopen.php





So you may be wondering to myself, 'Hey, why would I want to come to this competition?' Well, here are a few reasons:





1. You go to UT Austin and want to meet and compete against other speedcubers.


2. You live in Texas and want to compete in a speedcubing competition.


3. You don't live in Texas, but would like to travel to Austin and


experience the greatness of the town (if you're over 21, 6th street is


a great hangout ).

4. You just like speedcubing and want to support us.





Since UT Austin is a huge university, there's a lot of potential for a


good crowd. Plus, it will be nice to have another official competition in Texas.




So if you're interested, please register and come to our competition!
All the information should be on the webpage. If you have any
questions/suggestions, please email me at sapan.upadhyay@gmail.com.

Hey guys,



So I wanted to give a last minute update to anyone planning on coming
to the 2008 Austin Open (which is this weekend). I put a lot of
information on http://texasspeedcubing.org and http://texasspeedcubing.org/2008austinopen.php
about the competition, including information about parking, getting to
the venue, etc. If you are coming to the competition, I highly
recommend you read the information on the website. And I encourage
everyone to come, even if you're slow. Competing in a competition is a
huge motivator to becoming faster, and it's a lot of fun as well.



If anyone has any questions, feel free to either email me
(sapan.upadhyay@gmail.com) or reply to this thread. Thanks, and happy
cubing!
