FAQ:
Who can compete?
Everyone is welcome to compete. All you need to do is register for the event.

Is there a competitor limit?
If we list a competitor limit in the home page of the competition website, there is a competitor limit. Otherwise, it means that we do not plan to have a competitor limit at that time so there is no competitor limit for that competition. You just need to make sure to register before the registration deadline.

How do I register?
Click on the registration tab on the competition website. These are usually hosted through CubingUSA.

Where can I find my WCA ID?
If you have never competed before, you do not have a WCA ID. You will automatically be assigned one when the results for your first competition are posted. If you have competed before, you can find your WCA ID and profile by searching for yourself on the WCA website.

Do spectators have to pay to attend?
Spectators may drop in at any time and watch for as long as they want for free. However, everyone is encouraged to compete.

This is my first competition. What do I need to know?
Make sure the competitor is familiar with the WCA regulations and has watched the CubingUSA Competitor Tutorial.

I can only attend for part of the competition. Can I do my solves early?
Unfortunately, no. In order to keep the competition running smoothly, we have to stay on schedule.

Are competitions organized by age?
No.

When do I need to show up?
Look at the schedule on the competition website. You must be present and ready to compete during all events that you are registered for. The schedule is subject to change. We recommend coming about 15-30 minutes before the start of your first event.

What events will be at this competition?
Look at the events tab on the competiton website.

Can you add more events?
No. We plan our schedule to fit as many events as possible. If you don't see an event listed on the competition website, there's a good chance we'll have it at a future competition.

What are the cutoffs/time limits?
All cutoffs are listed on the schedule. If there isn't one specified, it is the WCA default cutoff (usually 10 minutes).

What do the cutoffs mean?

Event type Cutoff Time limit
Average of 5 (2x2-5x5, Skewb, Megaminx, Square-1, Pyraminx, etc) One of the first two solves must be under the cutoff time in order to finish the average. Automatic DNF when you go over the time limit (even if the cube is solved).
Mean of 3 (6x6, 7x7, BLD, etc) The first solve must be under the cutoff time in order to finish the mean. Automatic DNF when you go over the time limit (even if the cube is solved).

Why is the time limit for 3x3 10 minutes when the cutoffs for other events are much lower?
We want to encourage new competitors to compete so we try to make sure that everyone can compete in at least 3x3. We do not always have the time to allow everyone to compete in other events because we would like to hold a wider variety of events at our competitions.

Where can I see the results for the competition?
During the competition, live results will be posted on CubeComps. These results are unofficial. A week or so after the competition, official results will be posted on the WCA website.

Can I join the Michigan Cubing Club? Can I buy a shirt?
Anyone is welcome to attend our events (competitions). However, only University of Michigan students may officially join and buy club apparel. If you wish to join and are in high school or above, contact us.

What's the point of competing if I can't win?
People go to competitions to meet people, make friends, talk about cubing, improve their own official personal best times, and have fun. People of all ages, backgrounds, and skill levels attend competitions. Very few people actually go to competitions to win them.

Free Parking - you can park at lot MC28 for free on the weekends. This lot is across the street from Mary Markley Hall, 1503 Washington Heights, Ann Arbor, MI 48109. The venue is at most a 10 minute walk away from this lot. Another free lot is at the intersection of Ann and Zina Pitcher. City parking is free on Sundays.

Hotels

There are two hotels that you can reserve on campus, the Bell Tower Inn and the Campus Inn. These two hotels are generally expensive, however, and you can find much better deals if you stay off-campus. To see rates and locations, click here.

3. Paying the registration cost of $10.00. (The registration cost is the same, regardless of how many events are selected.)

PLEASE NOTE: If you paid but don't see your name on the registration list within 48 hours of payment (assuming 110 competitors aren't on the competitor list already), please email the organizers.

Refunds

If you withdraw your registration before registration closes (Wednesday, April 10, 2019, 11:59 PM EDT), you are eligible for a refund of half your registration cost. This means that if you decide to withdraw before then, you are eligible for a refund of $5. After this date, no refund requests will be honored.

There will be no refunds issued after this date. Attempting to file a chargeback for the registration fee will lead to being blacklisted from future WCA events.

Any requested changes to registration before registration closes will be honored. Your registration is not complete until your name shows up on the list. If you believe you paid and your name isn't showing up, please contact us so that we can assist you.

Competitors *MUST** register and pay online in order to compete. No at-the-door registrations or payments will be accepted.*

Waitlist Information

We will be keeping a waitlist for this competition. Once the 110th competitor has paid, we will not close registration until Wednesday, April 10, 2019, 11:59 PM EDT. To secure a place on the waitlist once 110 competitors have paid, simply pay the registration fee. If a competitor emails us to drop out before this time, you will be notified if you are the next competitor on the waitlist.

Once the deadline to request a refund has passed, all remaining competitors on the waitlist will be emailed letting them know they did not get off the waitlist and will be refunded.
