Information

Why SILENCE?

We will be trying our best to provide you all with an ambience of as much as silence and serenity as possible! Irrespective of the events... Yes, Including 3x3 and other NxN events which don't generally demand silence. :)

We aim to experiment and see how much more efficient we'd all be in an ambience more favorable for cubing. With minimal spectator pressure.

We plan have separate rooms for waiting and competing, where the competing area would only have the competitors for the round, scramblers, and judges in it.

We urge all the competitors to strictly adhere to the rules and regulations to contribute to the mission of providing a serene ambience for all the fellow cubers.

If you're participating in a WCA competition for first time, please bring your ID card as well.

If you're participating in a WCA competition for first time or not aware of competition rules, make sure that you attend the tutorial session.

Happy cubing!
