There is a limit of 28 competitors in the 3x3x3 Fewest Moves event (This limit might be raised, depending on the room setup - this will be confirmed later on the "About the competition" page). When the online registration period is over, the first 28 people who registered for Fewest Moves and paid their registration fee will receive an email confirming that they are able to compete in Fewest Moves; Fewest Moves will be removed from everyone else's registration.

UPDATE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this competition is cancelled. It will be rescheduled, but the new date has yet to be determined.

The first annual "Indiana" competition was held in Fishers, Indiana in 2011. There were 75 competitors, and the winning 3x3x3 average was 10.16 by Anthony Brooks.
From 2011-2015, the Indiana competitions were organized by Mike Hughey. In 2016, Nathan Dwyer and Tyler Brodzinski organized the Indiana 2016 competition in Fort Wayne, at the same venue that would host CubingUSA Nationals in 2017. There was no Indiana 2017 or Indiana 2018, since in those years Fort Wayne was the host city of CubingUSA Nationals and CubingUSA Great Lakes Championship, respectively. Indiana 2019 returned to Fort Wayne, and saw Luke Garrett win with a 7.75 average, meaning that 4/7 Indiana competitions have been won by a Kentuckian.

Past Champions:

2020 YOU?
2019 Luke Garrett 7.75 seconds
2018 ---------
2017 ---------
2016 Lucas Etter 8.04 seconds
2015 Drew Brads 7.73 seconds
2014 Lucas Etter 8.26 seconds
2013 Lucas Etter 9.12 seconds
2012 Austin Moore 9.50 seconds
2011 Anthony Brooks 10.16 seconds

Live results will be available (link forthcoming).
