IMPORTANT: This facility opened in September 2019; therefore, it may be missing from some mapping/GPS databases. Although the address is on Old 41 Highway, there is no entrance to the parking lot from that road. Instead, turn from Blue Springs Rd onto Quick Water Landing, then take the first right to reach the parking lot.

Room Details: The competition will take place in the library's community room, which is across the hall from the main sliding doors of the library. Access to the rest of the building will be restricted before 10AM and after 5PM, but bathrooms will be available for the whole day.

Parking: There is ample free parking available at the venue. The library would appreciate it if you park farther away from the building in order to leave space for people using the library to park closer.

Lunch: Lunch will not be provided at the venue. There are numerous nearby restaurants in downtown Kennesaw, downtown Acworth, and on Cobb Parkway. You are permitted to bring your lunch into the community room or onto the outside patio, but food must not be taken anywhere else in the library.

Additional Activities: The library will be holding additional activities throughout the day related to the competition: a scavenger hunt, math and science actitivities for little kids, etc. More details TBA.

This competition will be sponsored by TheCubicle.com! They will provide gift card codes for the top three cubers in each event.

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 a competition like?
A: Competitions are a bunch of tables where nerds like us get to sit and discuss our favorite thing: CUBES! Of course, there is also competing, which will occupy one side of the competition room, where you will see lots of timers flickering with contestants' new personal bests. There will be a break for lunch, and the competitors is split up into groups to organize who competes at what time. (Check the Competitor Information tab and listen at the competition for more info on this.)

Q: How do I find results?
A: All results will be posted on the competition's WCA page a couple of days after the competition finishes. However, on the day of the competition, go to WCA Live to find information about current events. This is also where you will find information about 2nd and 3rd rounds of events.
