Does anyone know of Rubik's events in England? I'm also looking for specialist puzzle shops if anyone knows any?

Hello!! Last year was the first UK Open, that was held in 2007. Dan Harris is going to be hosting another one this year, probably around November time, but there is no set place yet. Just wondering, what sort of times do you get? It's good to see another UK cuber. As for shops, there isn't really any in England. Ebay and the internet is your best bet...

Really i'm just starting out after being inspired by Youtube video's, the 3x3 algorithms shown(which i use) are for under 60secs, but I really need cube lube, because with use, my cube's have really stiffened up, but I cant find any on the net without paying for a DIY kit as well. One thing I have found which may be of interest to you all is this:- http://www.play-asia.com/paOS-13-71-9g- ... -1uou.html I'd appreciate any help locating cube lube, as i'm currently teaching my sister, and we would both soon like to attend an event. Thankyou.

Yeah, he probably didn't find any in the [b:3s91ar1h]15 months[/b:3s91ar1h] since he asked that. Boy are you smart.
