Competitors are encouraged to bring their own pens to this competition. Pens will be supplied for anyone who does not bring one.

All competing will be done, "stationary". This means that there will not be a competitor waiting area. At each competing station, there will be one competitor and one judge until the group is finished.

Rather than dropping off your cube at a "cube drop off table", competitors will go to the station with their scorecard, (labeled on their lanyard) and place their cube, and scorecard in the cube cover at their station.

After you have finished all of your solves(and signed for them!), you will be able to leave the station with your cube.

At 9:00 AM, before the first round of 3x3 starts, there will be a competitor tutorial. All competitors are encourage to attend reguardless of whether or not they have previously competed, as some things are different as per our Risk Management Plan.

New competitors are encouraged to watch this video, although some aspects of our competition will be run differently in accordance with the WCA Competition Safety Policy, and our Risk Management Plan.

Competitors will be asked to be a judge and/or runner throught the course of the competition. We reccomend competitors become familiar with this tab.

Competitors with an internet-enabled device will be asked to use's WCA inspection tool. Stopwatches will still be provided by the organization team for those who are unable to or wish not to use this tool.

We will have a comprehensive judging/ running tutorial during our competitor tutorial at 9:00 AM before 3x3 round 1 starts. Seasoned competitors will find some things different as per our Risk Management Plan.

Idaho Summer A 2021 (Friday, July 16, 2021) and Idaho Summer B 2021 (Saturday, July 17, 2021) are "Twin Competitions". This means that competitors may only compete in one of the two. If you have already registered for Idaho Summer B 2021, your registraion for Idaho Summer A 2021 will be rejected.

This allows twice as many people to compete while maintaining social distancing in the venue.

Huge Thanks to the Downtown Event Center for sponsoring this competition!
