Blind Round 2 is a tentative round

If you're new to competing here's a quick recap of what a Cutoff and Time Limit are:

Cutoff: at the beginning of your round you have 2 solves to get below the Cutoff time. If you do get below the Cutoff time for one or more of the first 2 solves you can finish the average. If you do not pass the Cutoff time for either of the first 2 solves then you only get to complete in the first 2 solves and do not get to finish the average.

Time Limit: If you do not pass the Time Limit for one of your solves you do not get to complete your solve and the time counts as a DNF

Some references to know:
DNF: Did Not Finish
DNS: Did Not Start
+2: a 2 second time penalty

This schedule is tentative
