Our competitions payment system is slightly different than most competitions, since we are using PayPal, please read the instructions below for how to pay:

If registration IS NOT full yet, the competitor should register and pay $17 to the PayPal account jweinstein99@yahoo.com(Make sure $17 is sent despite the PayPayl fee. Otherwise you will only have paid $16.21, which is not the full registration fee). When paying please include the first and last name of the competitor, so that we can verify that the competitor has paid and accept the registration. A registration submitted prior to the competition reaching capacity is only valid with payment. Registrations are accepted manually, so please be aware that it may take 1-2 days in some cases to process your registration.

If registration IS full, a potential competitor may register but need NOT pay immediately. The waiting list begins only for registrations made after capacity is reached, strictly in the order received. If spots open, we will send an e-mail to those next in line directing them to pay the registration fee to be accepted.

First, WELCOME TO SPEEDCUBING!

This event is open to all cubers (any age/experience). We just ask you know a couple things before coming to compete.

First, please be familiar with the WCA Regulations, found here:
https://www.worldcubeassociation.org/regulations/

Obviously there is a lot of information in the Regulations, so a video was made (credit to Chris Olsen and Kit Clement) to show new competitors the basics of competing. This video will explain most of what any cuber competing for the first time will need to know.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dPL3eV-A0ww

If you have any questions after watching this video, feel free to email one of the organizers (Matthew or Evan Rich) to ask. Also, if you have any questions the day of the competition please find one of our staff members, who will be wearing staff t-shirts, and ask them your questions.

If you would like to sign up for this competition, go over to the registration tab, click register, and fill out the information it asks for. This will help you get set up the WCA's system and one step closer to your first official solve!

FAQ
Q: Do I use my own cube to compete?
A: YES! You are responsible for your own hardware in order to compete.

Q: What is the normal age of competitors at these events?
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 the competition like?
A; Competitions are a bunch of tables where nerds like us get to sit and discuss our favorite thing, Cubes! Of course in addition there is competing, which will occupy one side of the competition hall, where you will see lots of timers flickering with contestants' new personal bests. Most competitions have a break for lunch, and the competing is split up into groups, as to better organize who competes when(This will be done alphabetically, by first name, at our competition).

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