Unfortunately, given what’s happening in the country at the moment with Covid-19, and the advice I’ve had from a number of sources, it’s pretty clear that I need to cancel our meetings until further notice.
I know this will come as a blow to a lot of our members, but I have to take our safety and the safety of the wider population seriously in this unprecedented (and very, very strange) time.
BUT THERE’S GOOD NEWS TOO! I have a solution so people can still cube together online!
Here are the meeting dates for 2020, as well as some of the scheduled competitions too! Keep an eye on the calendar for any changes or additions.
Our first meeting of the new year is next Sunday the 19th from 1 to 3 pm at Turanga, Central library!
I’m super pleased to announce that we have a new home at Tūranga, the Christchurch Central Library!
We will be meeting here each third Sunday of the month from now on. We’ll assemble near the giant touch screens just inside the main entrance.
I anticipate their might be a little bit of finding our way in the first few meetings, as the library haven’t hosted a group quite like ours before, but I’m sure we’ll settle in quickly.
If you haven’t done so already, please sign up to our newsletter! And you can check out the dates and times for our meetings here.
We are currently in the process of finding a new home, and hopefully I’ll have some more news for you soon! Keep checking here, and sign up to the newsletter if you haven’t done already.
We’re also going to take the opportunity to switch the day we meet to a Sunday from now on after feedback from a heap of members and parents.
Oh and there’s an update to how we record times coming too.
So quite a lot happening! Thanks for your patience while we get on top of all this noise. Change is exciting!
Keep an eye on your inbox and on here next week for details about more school holiday cube days, in the same style as our Championship day we had last year!
I’m just putting the fine details together now and will have the actual news for you next week 🙂
Happy new year everyone! The meeting dates for 2019 are all locked in and we’re looking forward to seeing you again!

We had SUCH an awesome time at the first ever Christchurch Speedcubers Championship! Thanks to everyone who came along and made it such a success.
We made some awards!
We were excited to introduce some awards and super custom solid gold trophies at the Championship! Massive congratulations to:
- Caleb aka G-Perm, who won most events completed!
- Finn, who won most DNFs!
- Oliver “Choke” Jenks who won fastest single 3×3!
- James Cropp who won slowest single 3×3!
- Misha, with a time of 40 minutes and 55 seconds for the 5×5, won slowest single any event!
Top 8 head to head final results…
2×2 – Jake! (Although we did have to handicap Noel in the final by giving him no inspection time!)
3×3 – Noel! (Oliver handicapped himself in the final by choking, with some encouragement from the spectators :P)
Check out all of the results from the day here
