Hey Roice,

That sounds like it was a fantastic experience!

I wish I had attended.

Hope all’s well. Still studying MC5D. I may just jump in
and hope for the best.

Peace and Success,

Subject: [MC4D] Erno Rubik contemplating Melinda’s 2x2x2x2


Hi all,

Last week, some of us were at the 13th Gathering for Gardner, a conference for math, puzzling, magic, and other topics in the spirit of Martin Gardner’s interests. This time, Erno Rubik attended as well!  I had brought along my copy of Melinda’s physical 2x2x2x2 and loaned it to Bob Hearn to show to Erno. One of the attendees (Doug Ensley) happened to snap a pic of Bob showing it to Professor Rubik, a very cool thing to see. We thought you all would enjoy too.

From this group, I got to meet Bob Hearn, Brandon Enright, and Carl Hoff. It was really cool to have this rare chance to speak in person. I wonder if there were other 4D_Cubing members there that I was not aware of.
