For those of you new to cubing, WELCOME!
We wanted to let you know this event is perfectly fine for cubers of any age and experience. We just ask you know a couple things before coming to compete.
First, please be familiar with the WCA Regulations, found here:
We have a video made specifically for new cubers, just to show them the basics of competing. This video will explain most of what any cuber competing for the first time will need to know.
If you are stoked to compete and ready to sign up, head over to the registration tab, click register, and fill out the information it asks for. This will help you get set up the WCA's system and one step closer to your first official solve!
Q: Do I use my own cube to compete?
A: Yes, you are responsible for your own hardware in order to compete.
Q: I changed my mind; can I add or remove an event from my registration?
A: Not a problem. Send us a message through the contact form and we will gladly change the events you for which you are signed up.
Q: Why are some cutoffs easier than others?
A: In events like 2x2 and 3x3, we aim to be inclusive and let newer competitors take their time. In other events, such as 7x7 and Square-1, we unfortunately have to include stricter cutoffs due to time constraints.
Q: Is this the same venue as Holy Toledo Summer 2018?
A: Same building, different room. We will be on the third floor instead of the second floor.
Q: The last competition had no space to sit, and I was stuck in the hallway!
A: That's not a question, but I got you covered. The new room will have more seating for everyone.
Q: Can I come spectate?
A: Yes! Any friends, family members, or anyone else can spectate the event at no cost.
Q: Do I have to be present for events I'm not competing in?
A: No. You only have to be at the venue for the events in which you are competing. I.e. if you are not competing in 4x4 BLD or 5x5 BLD, you do not have to arrive until your first event.
Q: What is the normal age of competitors at these events?
A: All ages are welcome, but in general competitors are between 10 and 20 years old. Don't let this stop you though, everyone can and should cube!
Q: How do I find results?
A: All results are posted on the WCA page a couple of days after the competition finishes. However, for the day of competing, go to Cubecomps.com to find information about current events. This is also where you will find information about 2nd and 3rd rounds of events.
Q: What is there to do when I'm not competing?
A: The bulk of the competition venue will have tables for competitiors to sit, practice, discuss among other cubers, and try out new puzzles!
Q: Why am I not on the registration list yet?
A: Make sure you pay you entrance fee in order to be automatically placed on the registered list, which will also guarantee you a spot in the competition. If payment may be any issue, or you are not sure if you can attend, use the contact button to talk to us, and see if we can work out another payment strategy, or have you pay on arrival at the compeition. No matter what you situation may be however, please register online. It is much easier for us to have you register now and pay later, then to have to input information at another time.
Q: Are there age divisions?
A: Nope! All cometitors compete in the same group.
Q: Can I have fun at this event?
A: HECK YES! Cubing is amazing, and we sincerely hope you enjoy the competition!
Directions to the venue:
As no outside food is allowed in the venue, we have allotted an hour-long lunch break for attendees to find a place to eat. There are several options a couple blocks away, including Subway and Jimmy Johns. Bear in mind that some restaurants, like Magic Wok, are closed on weekends.
I would like to extend a huge thanks to SpeedCubeShop for their continued support of the Toledo cubing scene! They will be providing gift card prizes for the top three in each event. Check out speedcubeshop.com
