RESPONSIBILITIES OF ALL COMPETITORS

Upon arrival, pick up your card and nametag at the reception table. At the back of your nametag, you will see your events and the group you will be competing in. In order to facilitate a smooth and efficient competition, you are expected to help either as a judge and/or scrambler. You will see your assignments at the back of your nametags. For each event you sign up for, you will be assigned either as judge or scrambler for one group of that event. If you fail to show up during your scheduled assignment, and there are not enough volunteers, you may be disqualified from competing. If this is your first time, there will be a judging tutorial before the beginning of the first event, which is 2x2x2. For the scramblers, you will be asked to help based on your competition experience. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask the organizers, Kelly and Jackie, or the WCA delegates, Anthony and Kevin.
