I just started learning Square-1 a week ago and I am improving quickly.  This is a great website for learning Sq-1 algorithms.

Here is the post on the SS forums about who is going to get the first Sub-1:30 6×6 mean.

The CubingUSA Nationals 2017 are this weekend.

The World Rubik’s Cube Championship will be held from July 13-16.
