ALL COMPETITORS MUST READ THIS TAB BEFORE REGISTERING.

FOR FIRST-TIME COMPETITORS:

There are multiple things a first-timer must know before competing. All newcomers must be familiar with the WCA Regulations before competing. There is a video here for the basic overview of the rules.

In addition, please read this document before coming to the competition to learn about the procedures for judging. Thanks to Olivér Perge and Niki Placskó for providing this detailed judging information document!

ALL COMPETITORS:

When you arrive, there will be information around the room on both competing assignments and judging assignments. All competitors are expected to help at this competition. For each event you sign up for, you will be assigned to help out for just one group of that event. We kindly ask everyone to help out at this event which can include competitors, parents, and other guests.

We will provide a judging tutorial at the beginning of the day, right before the start of the 3x3 Blindfolded event. This will allow anyone with questions about how to judge to be properly prepared when they are expected to help. We hope that this system will fairly divide up the judging of the competition and make the competition run smoothly for all.

Location:
Brooklyn Park Activity Center
5600 85th Ave. N.
Brooklyn Park, MN
