Rubik's Cubing On The News!
If you've never been to the Tri-Cities area in WA, I'm not surprised. It's a 3.5 hour drive to... Eastern Washington. We took the Seattle Cubing Society to Richland (one of the three in "tri") for the Mid Columbia Cubing Comp. What a pretty drive/town RIGHT smack on the Columbia River - and you don't even have to go to Portland ;) The local news station totally turned up and but the spotlight on Nick Vu - my Rubik's Cube guru:
There's more than one size cube - the standard is 3x3, but we competed in 2x2, 3x3, 4x4, 5x5, 6x6 and more. Nick's real strength is blindfolded solving. In under an hour, he memorized 11 cubes, put down his blindfold, and one by one, solved them without looking! What a crazy f*****! Full results from Mid Columbia here.
