2) The competitor must register for the competition using their WCA account, specifying which events they want to participate in.
3) The competitor must pay the entry fee by buying a ticket on Quicket.
If you haven't both registered for the competition (Step 2) and paid for a ticket (Step 3), you will not be able to compete.
After registering for the competition on the WCA website, your registration will be pending. Once the payment through Quicket has been confirmed, your registration will be approved. (Allow up to 24 hours for the organizers to confirm the payment.)
While we encourage you to register through the WCA website, competitors may instead register on the spot on one of the days of the competition provided the competitor limit has not been reached. The entry fee for on-the-spot registrations is R300.

If you're a first-time competitior, we would love to have you! It doesn't matter how quickly you can solve the cube - everyone is there to have fun, make new friends, and do their best.
This competition runs over two days but you don't need to attend both days. Have a look on the schedule to see when the different events are happening so you can decide what days you should attend. For example, if you're only competing in 2x2 and 3x3, you only need to come on Sunday. Make sure to arrive at least 15 minutes before Registration ends on the first day you'll be competing. This helps us with entering everyone into the system and ensures that you're on time for the New competitor tutorial. As a first-time competitor, you don't want to miss this as we'll be going over all the details of how to participate in this competition.
If you're on the fence about going, take a look at this video giving a bit of insight into what a cube competition is like. If you would like some more information about what to expect, take a look at:
