Before the competition, you will receive a card/nametag with personalized information detailing your events and what group you will be competing in for each event in an email. We will be relying on competitors to help by judging whenever they are not competing, especially with our small competition size. Judging is very easy, and is a great way to make time fly!

We will provide a judging and competitor tutorial at the beginning of the day, right before the start of the first event. This will allow anyone with questions about how to judge to be properly prepared when they are expected to help.

We will need help judging for the second/final rounds of events as we can not assign staff for those in advance. Spectators are encouraged to learn how to judge; you do not need to know how to cube in order to be a great judge. Having enough judges ensures that we stay on schedule and are able to leave on time.
Other Safety Rules/Requirements

  • Masks are encouraged at all times. They may become a requirement if the situation regarding COVID-19 worsens.
  • Competitors should not attend the competition if experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, or if they were exposed to someone with COVID-19. If this occurs to you, the organizers will offer the competitor a full refund.
  • Competitors should bring their own pen to the competition, but pens will be available to those who do not.
  • When not competing, competitors and spectators should attempt to socially distance whenever possibly by keeping 3 feet away from others. We also encourage you not to share puzzles with other competitors.
  • Sanitary wipes will be available. Competitors may disinfect the stations at their discretion. Hand Sanitizer will be placed around the venue for use at your desire.
  • Officials and staff will be following special procedures to continue to lower chance of transmission of COVID-19, such as utilizing sanitizer frequently and distancing.

Additional rules may be added as deemed necessary by the organizers, the WCA Board, or the local or state government.
