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:
Of course, those regulations contain a lot of legalese, so 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, however, we will have a vendor at this competition, from which you can buy puzzles if your current ones have seen better days.
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: What is the competition like?
A: At the competition there will be a competing area, which will occupy one side of the competition hall, where you will see lots of timers flickering with contestants new personal bests, and a vendor, where you can purchase all you cubing related needs. Most competitions have a break for lunch, and the competing is split up into groups, so as to better organize who competes when. (Check the Groups tab and listen at the competition for more info on this.)
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: 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 competition. 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 age group.

The competition will take place in the Mandela Room, which is located on the first floor of the University Union.
Please note that lunch will not be provided, but many options are available in the Market Place, which is a short walk away from the Mandela Room. A list of options available in the Market Place can be found here
Additionally, right outside of the Mandela Room, there is a Dunkin Donuts that will be open from 10am-6pm.
Parking on Binghamton University campus is free on the weekends starting Friday after 5 pm. Any vacant space in a lot that is not a state service vehicle, handicap, paid meter, loading zone, or purple heart service member space is available.
However, students still use these spaces, so a guaranteed open space will be in Lot M2. Enter campus via Glenn G. Bartle Drive, and continue to the right around the loop. On the right-hand side of the loop, as soon as you pass the traffic circle, there will be a bus stop. Turn right on the access road directly after the bus stop and follow the road until a large open lot is on your immediate right. Refer to the Campus Map for a visual.
Groups will be announced when the registration closes.
We will be using CubeComps for live results. A link will be posted as we mvoe closer to the competition.
Please understand that entering live results takes up competition resources that could go to the actual running of the event. We will do our best to get results entered as fast as possible, however there may be delays. All results will be entered prior to later rounds.
We will be having an unofficial round of Team-Blind at the competition with prizes to be won! More details to come soon, including rules and team applications!
