Information

In Holland, we are surrounded by beautiful beaches on the coast of Lake Michigan. With the first WCA competition to take place in Holland, we hope that you will all set PBs by the beach.

There will be TWO rounds of Redi cube in this competition for the MoYu Redi Cube Cup. This is not an official WCA event, so these rounds do not appear in the Events tab, but they are listed on the schedule. The only requirement is that you know how to solve, and have a redi cube.

Before You Register

All prospective registrants need a WCA account. Competitors can create their own WCA account by clicking here and entering the required information.

How to Register Online

The competitor limit for this competition is 100.
Prospective competitors register by:
1. Signing into their WCA account;
2. Clicking "Register" on the left side of this webpage, selecting the events they would like to compete in, and submitting their registration;
3. Paying the registration cost of $15.00. (The registration cost is the same, regardless of how many events are selected.)
Your registration is not complete until you have paid the registration fee.

PLEASE NOTE: If you paid but don't see your name on the registration list within 48 hours of payment (assuming 100 competitors aren't on the competitor list already), please email the organizers. Despite the use of the Stripe payment system, organizers still have to manually move competitors to the approved competitor list following payment.

How to Pay for Registration Online

Payment is processed through Stripe.
Click on the "Register" tab on the left side of the webpage to register and pay all in one place! You can start the payment process by clicking "Pay your fees with card."

Withdrawing Registration

Registering and paying demonstrates your commitment to attend the competition. However, if you have registered and are no longer able to attend, please contact us via email.

Refunds

If you withdraw your registration before registration closes (Tuesday, July 16, 2019, 11:59 PM EDT), you are eligible for a refund of half your registration cost. This means that if you decide to withdraw before then, you are eligible for a refund of $7.50. After this date, no refund requests will be honored. There will be no refunds issued after this date. Attempting to file a chargeback for the registration fee will lead to being blacklisted from future WCA events.

Any requested changes to registration before registration closes will be honored. Your registration is not complete until your name shows up on the list. If you believe you paid and your name isn't showing up, please contact us so that we can assist you.

Competitors MUST register and pay online in order to compete. No at-the-door registrations or payments will be accepted.

Waitlist Information

We will be keeping a waitlist for this competition. Once the 100th competitor has paid, we will not close registration until Tuesday, July 16, 2019, 11:59 PM EDT. To secure a place on the waitlist, simply pay the registration fee. If a competitor emails us to drop out before this time, you will be notified if you are the next competitor on the waitlist.

Once the deadline to request a refund has passed, all remaining competitors on the waitlist will be emailed letting them know they did not get off the waitlist and that their registration fee will be refunded.

This competition will be held in the Ballroom of the Haworth Inn and Conference Center (Google map link) on the campus of Hope College.
