The main portion of the day will be done Hungarian style. This means that everyone will be put into competitor groups (TBA a few days before the competition), and will be expected to judge and/or scramble when they are not competing. For example, Group 1 may be asked to staff for Group 2.
For Saturday, the organizers are Ryan Jew and Karen Tu.
After all of the scheduled events have finished, staff members may complete their Day 2 Round 1 solves. Those who are normally not a staff member may request to join the staff for this competition. Anyone who elects to participate must agree to the following contact:
"By participating in the Berkeley Summer 2017 Staff Competition, I agree to fulfill judging and/or scrambling duties for the entirety of Berkeley Summer 2017's second day, on September 17th, 2017, as prescribed by the organization team. If I fail to fulfill my judging and/or scrambling duties, I understand that I forfeit my results under penalty of WCA regulations 1e2 and 1f2."
Q: Do I have to show up if I'm not doing any of these events?
A: No. If you aren't competing in FMC, Megaminx, Square-1 or 3x3 Blindfolded, then you only have to come on Sunday.
Q: Can I do staff comp if I'm not competing on Saturday?
A: Yes, but please make sure that the organizers will accept you as a staff member first.
The main portion of the day will be done Hungarian style, with competitors staying at their station for all solves of each event. Competitors will be called alphabetically by FIRST name. Competitors will still be expected to help judge when they are not competing, as this competition will have a huge number of solving stations that it needs to keep staffed.
Please be at the venue and ready to compete at least 15 minutes before your first event is scheduled to begin, as we may get ahead of the schedule.
For Sunday, the organizers are Jacob Posner and Erik Cheng. If you have any questions during the Sunday competition, ask the info desk.
Know the regs, show up on time, don’t need to check in, and be respectful of competitors by staying 1.5 meters away from competition stations and not using flash photography
Q: Will there be a cube store?
A: Yes, the Berkeley Cube Club will be selling cubes.
Q: When do I show up?
A: Please be at the venue and ready to compete at least 15 minutes before your first event is scheduled to begin. We may get ahead of the schedule and start rounds early.
Q: Is there a general admission price if I am not competing?
A: There is no cost to spectate; the competition is open to the public. However, note that the room will be crowded, and again, we ask that competitors keep the number of guests they bring to a minimum.
Q: When should I leave the competition?
A: You are allowed to enter and leave the competition as you wish. If you are finished competing for the day, you do not need to stay at the competition.
Q: What do I do if I want to drop or add an event?
A: If you wish to drop an event from your registration, please email us, or let us know at the data entry table during the competition. You will not be refunded any money if you drop events. Unfortunately, due to our tight schedule, we are unable to add events to competitors’ registrations.
Q: I cannot attend this competition. What should I do?
A: If you cannot attend this competition after all, please send us an email saying so. Please ensure that you include your name and WCA ID in the body of the email.
Berkeley Cube Club will TENTATIVELY hold a new staff training session on Friday, September 15th in the evening. Any competitors or family/friends of competitors interested in getting more involved with the community are encouraged to attend. Pizza will be served and the lecture should be under an hour.
After the training session, there will be an unnoffical mock mini-competition.
Interest in this event will be gauged closer to the day of the event. Stay tuned.
