DRIVING IN A FLASH FLOOD FOR A RUBIK’S CUBE COMPETITION – Wildcat Spring 2019


I’m at a rest stop right now – in Ohio – about halfway to Lexington. But first, I’m going to stop in Cincinnati
to see my brother. I made it to Cincinnati, and I have no idea
where I am. Is that… I think that’s his apartment. It’s Roman! I think I made it. It is now 9:20. I left my house just a little after 1:00. So traffic and stopping to see my brother
has turned a 4-and-a-half hour drive to a 8-hour drive. But I’m here… I don’t know what to do now. I don’t even know if I’m supposed to be parked
here. Waiting for Javi, said he’ll be here in five
minutes. Where is he? waiting in the competitor waiting area, and someone will bring your cube over to get scrambled. So, you’ll wait in that waiting area until
someone calls you up to compete. The runner will bring you to a station, and judge will ask you if you are ready. You don’t have to say you’re ready until
you actually are. Are you ready Jason? Ready. Let ’em know when you’re ready, and they’ll lift the cover and start the stopwatch. -when twelve seconds have passed. When twelve seconds have passed it’s a good
idea to start, but you can start whenever you’re ready,
you don’t have to- -take them off, and that will start the timer. When you’re done, just place them back down
the same way, and that’ll stop the timer. If you’ve never used a StackMat before, let your judge know before your first solve, and you can definitely try it out and make
sure you know how it works. When you’re done, the judge will write down
the time, and they will write their initials down. Look at the time, and make sure that it is
correct. Just got a severe flash flood alert, so I’m
at a rest stop. We were all going 40 on the freeway with our
hazards on. Multiple accidents. So we got the whole crew here at this rest
stop. And I think I’m about to make a mad dash to
the rest area. [laughter] Geez, look at that! [laughter] The rain let up. Made it.
