Courtesy of University City High School:

Henry HelmuthUCHS sophomore and speedcuber champion Henry Helmuth is cohosting a speedcubing competition at UCSD this month.

The competition will take place on Sunday, May 29 from 11 AM to 7:00 PM at the Price Center at UCSD.

Co-hosting with him are his friends and fellow cubers Andrew Nathenson from San Diego High, and Corey Young and Kavin Tangtartharakul from UCSD.

CubesEvents include: 3x3x3 (regular Rubik’s cube), 3×3 one-handed, 4×4, 5×5, and 3×3 FMC.

For those of us not familiar with the jargon, FMC stands for Fewest Moves Challenge and it’s one of the more difficult events, as the object is to come up with a way to solve the cube in the fewest number of moves possible.

There may also be a round of Megaminx (a 12-sided puzzle) and a round of 7×7 if there is time.

One hundred competitors from around southern California are expected to attend, some with average solving times less than 9 seconds.
