### Sudoku Cube

```A Sudoku puzzle uses the numbers 1-9.  It gives you some numbers and
then you have use your head to figure out the rest.  On a Sudokube,
all the numbers that you can use are given to you.  In a nut shell,
use the method that we first taught you in math class.  This will take
a lot more time as you have to be checking to make sure you don't
repeat numbers on sides.  Just do each layer individually and take
numbers that they give you are the only ones that can be used so the
possibilities, while still tremendous, are fewer than if you had to
put your own numbers in.  This will seem much harder as there are no
colors to identify with, but other than that, it's a regular 3x3x3.
By the way, are you still up for the competition on August 12th?  Send
me an email and I'll give you the club members' details of what time
and such.

prizes.  The person that takes first place in an event will recieve
one of these prizes!  For the prizes, we have four Gold Cubes and one

```Hello Everyone!!!  For our competition on August 12 this is the
schedule of events:

9:00 to 10:00 - Registration

your name on the item and ask a club member to place it in the fridge
for you.  When you want your food or drink, find a club member and ask
him to get your food or drink out of the fridge for you.  You will not
be allowed on the kitchen yourself.  Find myself or another club
member!  Be sure that your name is clearly written on the food or
drink!  We will not be responsible for this!

1:00 to 2:00 - 2x2x2 Speed Solve

2:00 to 3:00 - 3x3x3 Blindfolded

```I'll be in New York, but I wish all of you good luck.  I would
recommend canceling the 3x3x3 Speed Solve (all rounds) in favor of the
