For First-Time Competitors

All newcomers must be familiar with the WCA Regulations before competing. This video gives a basic overview of the rules.

In addition, please read this tutorial document before coming to the competition.

For All Competitors

When you arrive, you will receive a card with personalized information detailing your events and what group you will be competing in for each event. In addition, you will also have judging/scrambling assignments on your card. Every competitor is expected to help out during the event(s) they are registered for. The card will look like the following:

If you do not arrive to help during your scheduled event, and there are not enough staff members, we reserve the right to disqualify you from competing.

Driving Directions

From I91 North and South

Take exit 24 and then take a left onto Gilman Rd (Rte 122). Stay on this road for approximately 1.7 miles until you reach an intersection with a stop light. Go straight onto East Burke Rd for 4.74 miles and Mountain Road will be on your right (There will be a sign for the Hotel and Conference Center). Travel 2.5 miles up Mountain Rd and you will see a sign that says "Event Parking" on the right. Park in this lot and follow the foot bridge near the back of the parking lot to the Hotel and Conference Center. The Ballroom is on the second floor.

**NOTE:* There is also parking in the front of the building, but we please ask that you park in the event parking, due to lack of spaces in the front, unless your situation requires it*

Finding The Ballroom

  1. From event parking, walk down through the footbridge (near the back of the "Event Parking" lot). You will see the Hotel and Conference center just across the road. Carefully cross the road and enter the double doors into a table seating area, and the ballroom is on your right at the end of the hallway. Note: Entering the back of the Hotel from Event Parking means you are already on the second floor.

  2. From the lobby (1st Floor): Take the elevator or stairs up to the 2nd floor, and the ballroom will be on your right, down the hall
    There will be signs out, for direction to the Ballroom.

  3. From the rooms: Take the elevator or stairs down to the 2nd floor, and the ballroom will be on your right, down the hall


Special Hotel Room Pricing

We will have a block of rooms reserved for competitors. Just mention group code CUBERS during your reservation. This will also give you a discount.
NOTE: This is on a first come, first serve basis so please book ASAP as to not miss out on the discount. There is a 50% deposit required at the time of booking.

You're allowed to bring your own food in, as long as you keep food and drinks in the cafeteria area down the hall (If you purchase food and drinks at an on-site restaurant, you ARE allowed to bring into the ballroom).

All competitors and guests will be required to wear a mask anytime they are inside the venue. The only exception is for eating or drinking, which we ask is done quickly. Having a water bottle nearby is not an excuse to not be wearing a mask.

Venue entrance policy:

1) They are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. To clarify, an individual is only considered fully vaccinated if they have received their second dose of a two-dose vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna) or their only dose of a single-dose vaccine (J&J) more than two weeks before the competition. Any dose received after Saturday, November 5, 2022 is insufficient for entrance to the competition.
OR

2) They tested negative for COVID-19 within 72 hours (3 days) of the competition. The date when the test is conducted is what matters, not the date when the results are received. Any test conducted earlier than Wednesday, November 16th is insufficient for entrance to the competition. At home tests are NOT sufficient for entrance.
