Group Assignments

Before the competition, you will receive a card/nametag with personalized information, such as what group you will be competing in for each event, as well as judging/running/scrambling assignments in an email. We will also have printed versions available at the competition. We will be relying on competitors to help by judging whenever they are not competing, especially with our small competition size. Judging is very easy, and is a great way to make time fly!

We will provide a judging and competitor tutorial at the beginning of the day, right before the start of 3x3. This will allow anyone with questions about how to judge to be properly prepared when they are expected to help. Spectators are encouraged to learn how to judge; you do not need to know how to cube in order to be a great judge. Having enough judges ensures that we stay on schedule and are able to leave on time. We will need help judging for the second/final rounds of events as we can not assign staff for those in advance, so if you're free during those rounds and willing to help, we'd greatly appreciate it!

COVID Safety

Masks are highly encouraged during this competition, and may become required if the COVID situation worsens.
Competitors and spectators should NOT attend the competition if they are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or if they have been exposed to someone infected with COVID-19. If this applies to you, please contact the organizers in advance so that you can be issued a full refund.

When not competing, competitors and spectators should attemps to socially distance whenever possible by keeping 3 feet away from others.

Additional rules may be added as deemed necessary by the organizers, the WCA Board, or the local or state government.

BY REGISTERING, YOU AGREE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND AND WILL FOLLOW ALL OF THE INFORMATION ABOVE.
