There will be two groups for each multi blind attempt. Please note that these groups may change if there are cancellations / no-shows.

Group 1: Christopher Chi, James Quinn, James Donahue, Alex Cheng
Group 2: Tim Reynolds, Will Russo, Nicholas McKee, Alexei Sinyavin

Before FMC attempts 1 and 2, we will collect cubes for multi blind. You do not have to submit the cubes you're using in FMC. We'll then scramble all cubes for both groups, and group 1 will start. Once about half of group 1 has finished their attempt, we'll start group 2.

All competitors will be required to help with judging.

The competition will be held at Tim Reynolds' house. The address will be provided to registered competitors a week before the competition. It is near Alewife in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA.

There is public transit available very nearby. Limited street parking is also available.

This competition will be sponsored by TheCubicle!
