New Competitors:

  • We are excited you are considering the Chicago Area Twist Summer 2019 as your first competition! This is a great one to start with and will have competitors of all ages!
  • We encourage first time competitors to test out the timing equipment before your first attempt, feel free to ask a staff member how competing works. Before the competition, you can watch this great video made by WCA Senior Delegate for USA & Canada Kit Clement with the basics of how it all works. There is also this written tutorial on the WCA website that is very helpful.
  • The competitors will be split up into groups for competing. You will be assigned a group and you'll be informed of your group number for each event before the competition. On the day of the competition when your group number is called you bring your puzzle up and put it in the box that has a scorecard with your name on it and wait in the competitor waiting area until your name is called.
  • It's a good idea to arrive before the scheduled time for your event because if you are not there for the last call you might not be allowed to compete.
  • Read the "All Competitors" information below.

All Competitors:

  • Be familiar with the WCA Regulations specifically Article 2 and Article A
  • We are going to need all the help we can get from volunteer judges throughout the day to make the competition run well. You may judge in any group you are not competing in and it is greatly appreciated! If you do not know how to judge all of the staff members are more than happy to teach you. Parents are welcome to judge too, it's a great way to get a new experience at your child's event!
  • Flash photography is not allowed because it is very distracting to people while they are solving.
  • You may NOT talk about the scrambles of an event while it is still in progress.
  • Make sure all screens of any cameras or phones you have on the table are facing away from you otherwise this will result in a DNF
  • Please treat the venue with respect, pick up any trash keep track of your puzzles.
  • We will do our best to retain the cutoffs and time limits as listed. The organizers/delegate reserve the right to make the limits stricter ahead of an event only as needed to maintain the schedule. Any changes will be announced ahead of their respective rounds.
  • We will add final rounds of Skewb, 2x2 and 4x4 if we have enough time. For 2x2 and Skewb it will be the top 16 competitors from round 1 and 4x4 will be the top 10.

We will need lots of help judging at this competition! Everyone that attends is required to judge a group that they are not competing in for every event they compete in.
If you are interested in volunteering the entire day pelase fill out this form https://forms.gle/4p98AMsPdYH7BUCN9
Any perks for being a full time volunteer will be decided close to the date of the competition.

We will have laminated certificates for everyone that finishes in the top 3 competitors for all the events.

We will post more information here if we get a sponsor for the competition.
