I'm thinking about going, not competing though. It takes me 10+ to solve one and the limit is 10 minutes. Winners are under 20 seconds!
I learned how on the YouTube - how to solve a Rubiks' cube videos. Specifically - pogobat - Dan Brown's videos. http://www.youtube.com/user/pogobat
It's still a challenge but attainable now.
