All Competitors

  • Please try to arrive at least 30 minutes early for the events you are competing in to ensure that you are on time for that event.
  • We will use regulation 9p3 as much as we can. So if you do not arrive to compete by the time the event is starting, your spot may be given up the next competitor in the rankings.
  • To keep the competition running on time and to ensure we can keep all events we will be requiring competitors to also judge. Pay attention to the group assignment sheet - This is essential to keep the events on schedule. We also invite any parents or guests to also help to judge - thank you for your support. Please arrive to attend the New Competitor & Judges tutorial.
  • Your delegates for this competition are Zachary White and Vincent Chen. Ask them if you have any questions throughout the day!

New Competitors

  • Please try to arrive early to watch the new competitor introduction.
  • Additionally you can watch Kit Clement's WCA Competitor Tutorial video.
  • Please be familiar with all of WCA's regulations, most importantly Article A. If you have any questions about the regulations, feel free to ask us.
  • In each event we will have rounds. We will take the top competitors into subsequent rounds. After a round is completed it will be entered into WCA Live. Your name will be highlited if you are advancing to the next round.
  • Each round will be divided into groups to help them run more efficiently. We will call the groups in order, along with a last call during the last group. Please come bring your puzzle up and wait in the competitor waiting area when your group is called. We are allowed to deny you the ability to compete if you do not come up by the last call.

This competition is being held as a fundraiser for Living Water International.
In sprit of that, we created a fundrasing page where cubers can work together.
At fundraise.water.cc/cube, competitors and those involved can create fundraising pages by clicking Join Team.
We encourage parents to help their younger cubers with this process. You can then share your fundraiser page to friends and family. This is optional.
If every competitor can raise just $15, we can provide water to at least 25 people from this form of fundraising alone. Participation in this can also help us have the possibility of using this venue again in the future.
The competitor with the most money raised and the competitor with the most donors will recieve prizes after the fundraising period has ended (after the competition). More details will be provided later on prizes.

This competition is sponsored by TheCubicle! They will be providing gift cards to the podium.
