This competition is open to everyone. Registration starts on the 25th of July at 8:00 PM.

The entry fees for competitors is €9, guests can attend free of charge. This must be paid in advance, by following the instructions below.

When 100 competitors have completed their registration by paying the entry fee, registration will be closed and a waiting list will be started.

How to register

  1. Fill in the form on this site and pay the entry fee
  2. Then, we will accept your registration and your name will show up on the competitor list

Cancellation

If you registered but are unable to attend for some reason, you can cancel your registration by sending an email to the organizers. If you do this before the 21st of September (the Saturday before the competition), we will refund half of your entry fee.

Change events

If you want to change the events you're registered for, you can do so by sending an email to the organizers before the 21st of September. We will not add you to any new events after this date.

Competitors for each event are divided into groups. Some events (like 2x2 and 3x3) will have a lot of competitors and therefore many groups, while others (like megaminx) will only have 2 groups. At the competition, we will announce when a group starts so you can bring up your puzzle to the scrambling table and place it on the scorecard that has your name.

When arriving at the competition, go to the registration desk to receive the overview of the groups you are competing in and judging, scrambling or running for, during the first rounds. This is the minimum amount you should be helping out. If you want to help out more, you are always welcome to fill an empty judge seat. We appreciate this enormously as it helps us running the competition smoothly!

Groups

To be announced. Check again a few days before the competition.
