Recently though, Luke Taylor, junior, has decided that a new club was necessary. Thursday, November 17, marked the first meeting of the Cube Club, purveyor’s of all things Rubik.
With an attendance of approximately 15 people, the club’s first meeting consisted only of a short introduction, then all of the Rubik’s wizards trying to teach the less magical members how to shift the 20 multicolored cubes of the 3×3 Rubik’s Cube around to make the colors match up.
Taylor, being the president of the club, has put in a lot of effort over the last two years. “As soon as I came up with the idea for the club, I started writing a club constitution,” said Taylor. The constitution explains the hierarchy of authority in the club, with standard positions such a president and treasurer, and even a secretary of war.
When Taylor first had the idea for the Cube Club, the first thing he did was enlist some of his Rubik’s adept friends to carry the ranks of club officers. Without a need to elect officers at the first meeting enabled the staff to progress right to teaching the less Rubik’s savvy the art of cubing.
The attendees of club meeting number one were generally pleased with how it went.
Long term Rubik’s Cube solver Victor Walker said, “I already know how to solve a Rubik’s Cube, but it’s fun to see what other tricks people know.”
The club meets on Dec 1, and every other week after that, in room 210; they are open to new members. Even those who have no idea how to solve intricate puzzle are still welcome to come and learn.
