Incident at Michigan Mystery 2014

WDC (2014-12-10 22:19:20 +0000)
Dear Community, At Michigan Mystery 2014, a competitor (under 18 years) was found to have cheated during the blindfolded event by peeking under the blindfold and avoiding the stationary object also intended to restrict the competitor's view. With the support of the Board, the WDC has decided that the competitor will be banned from all blindfolded events for 6 months, up to the end of May 2015. The competitor confessed to the incident at the competition, and the cooperation and remorse shown during the investigation (with the support of a parent) was taken into account. Thank you to all who helped this investigation, notably the competition delegate Kit Clement. Regards, WCA Disciplinary Committee
