The base registration fee for this competition is $27 (Canadian Dollar).
If your registration is cancelled before you will be refunded 50% of your registration fee.
No on the spot registrations will be accepted.
Spectators can attend for free.
If the competitor limit has been reached and you register for this competition, you will be added onto the waitlist. Once on the waitlist, you must complete your registration (by paying the registration fee). As competitors delete their registrations, spots will open up for people on the waitlist and competitors will be taken on a first-come first-serve basis from those that have paid. If you are accepted from off of the waitlist, you will be notified by receiving an email saying that your registration has been accepted. We will only be taking people from the waitlist until the end of February 1st. If you do not make it off the waitlist, you will be fully refunded your registration fee and will, unfortunately, not be able to compete in the competition. On-site registrations will not be accepted.
You are still welcome to come and socialize with cubers at the competition, which we strongly recommend you do if you're not too far from the venue. It's not every day that you're in a room with 80+ cubers! If you have not attended a competition yet and don't make it off the waitlist, this is a great opportunity to go see what a competition is like without having to worry about your results.

ALL COMPETITORS MUST READ THIS TAB BEFORE REGISTERING.
When you arrive, you will receive a card/nametag with personalized information detailing your events and what group you will be competing in for each event. In addition, you will also receive staffing assignments. All competitors are expected to help at this competition. For each event you sign up for, you will be assigned to help out for just one group of that event. If you do not arrive to help during your scheduled event, and there are not enough staff members, we reserve the right to disqualify you from competing.
We will provide a judging tutorial at the beginning of the day, right before the start of the 2x2x2 speedsolve event in the morning and before 3x3 after lunch. This will allow anyone with questions about how to judge to be properly prepared when they are expected to help. We hope that this system will fairly divide up the judging of the competition and make the competition run smoothly for all.
For those of you new to cubing, WELCOME!
We wanted to let you know this event is perfectly fine for cubers of ANY age and experience. We just ask you know a couple things before coming to compete...

A: YES! You are responsible for your own hardware in order to compete. This means you should bring your own cube, or arrange to borrow a cube from a friend.

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!

A: All results are posted on the WCA page within a week after the competition finishes. However, for the day of competing, go to Cubecomps.com to find information about current events.
