Team Blind is unofficial event.

There will be 2 rounds of the event in format of "Best of 3" and 15 minutes cumulative time limit. 75% from competitors of the first round will procceed to the finals.

The team needs to bring their own puzzle and have a blindfold. The solver puts on a blindfold before inspection and doesn't remove it until the end of the solve (the timer is stopped). Both competitors may talk at any time. Inspection time is 15 seconds, caller may touch the cube when inspecting.

An example how the event looks like when training:

An example how it looks on our competitions:

RU: Топ3 победителей в каждой дисциплине получат медали и сертификаты.

EN: All top three finishers of an event will receive a medal and certificate.

Kiev is the capital of Ukraine. So it's easy to travel to the competition from any other location.

To find flights to Kiev you can use lowcost companies like:

There are few ways to get from airports to city center.

From Boryspil airport you can take:
express train to “Kyiv-Pasazhyrskyi” railway staiton for (80UAH ~3€)
or
bus to “Kharkivska” subway station for (60UAH ~2€)
or
bus to “Pivdennyi” railway station for (100UAH ~3.5€)

From Sikorsky/Zhulyany airport:
unfortunately there no special transport from/to and you will need local cash for public transport, but you can easily take "Uber"/"Bolt" - it will cost ~4-5€ to get to city center.

The competition venue located 5 minutes walk from "Shulyavska" metro station. Metro trip costs 8UAH(~0.30€) and can be paid with PayPass (look for the yellow tourniquet with "PayPass" sign).
We recommend to use Uber when you need to go from one location to another in Kiev (it's very cheap).You can use a public transport as well but remember you will need local cash almost for all except metro.

Venue address: Vadyma Hetmana, 1a, Kiev (see on the map).

The building and the entrance where the competition will be held you can see on the photo below.

When enter go to the second floor and follow the signs. Our room is conference hall #1.

Accomodation:
Despite the fact that Kiev is the capital and seventh largest city of Europe, accommodation here is very cheap.

You can find lots of cheap hostels (from ~10€ per night), apartments & hotels in central Kiev.
Check booking/airbnb/hotels sites.

Food
We will have special "Pizza Party" event both days at lunch :)

Also there is McDonald's and some others restaurants and supermarkets in less then 5 mins walk from the venue:
