Registration Process
Before You Register
All prospective registrants need a WCA account. New competitors can create their own WCA account by clicking here and entering the required information.

How to Register Online
Prospective competitors register by:
1. Signing into their WCA account;
2. Clicking "Register" on the left side of this webpage, selecting the events they would like to compete in, and submitting their registration;
3. Paying the registration fee of $20.00. (The registration fee is the same regardless of how many events are selected.) Your registration is not complete until you have paid the registration fee.

The competitor limit for this competition is 100. The list of approved competitors can be found by clicking "Competitors" on the left side of this webpage. If there are already 100 competitors on that list, it means the competition is full, and any future registrants will be placed on the waitlist.

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

Any requested changes to registration before 8:00 PM EDT on Friday October 21st will be honored. Your registration is not complete until your name shows up on the list.

How to Pay for Registration Online
Payment is processed through Stripe. Click on the "Register" tab on the left side of the webpage to register and pay all in one place! You can start the payment process by clicking "Pay your fees with card."

Refunds
Approved competitors who cancel their registration before 8:00 PM EDT on Friday October 21st are eligible for a refund for half (50%) of their registration cost. After this date, no refund requests will be honored. Attempting to file a chargeback for the registration fee will lead to being blacklisted from future WCA events.

Waitlist Information
We will be keeping a waitlist for this competition. To secure a place on the waitlist once 100 competitors have paid, simply pay the registration fee. If a competitor emails us to drop out before 6:00 PM EDT on Sunday October 1st, you will be notified if you are the next competitor on the waitlist. After that deadline, all remaining competitors on the waitlist will be emailed letting them know they did not get off the waitlist and will be fully refunded.

You may not attend the competition if you have tested positive for Covid-19 within the past 5 days.
If you have tested positive for Covid-19 within the past 10 days, you must wear a mask. At the moment, there is no restriction regarding individuals who have or have not been vaccinated, and masks are optional.
Covid restrictions may be changed if the local and global Covid-19 situation changes.

For First-Time Competitors

All newcomers must be familiar with the WCA Regulations before competing. This video gives a basic overview of the rules.

For All Competitors

When you arrive, you will receive a card with personalized information detailing your events and what group you will be competing in for each event. In addition, you will also have judging/scrambling assignments on your card. Every competitor is expected to help out during the event(s) they are registered for. The card will look like the following:

If you have any questions at the competition, talk to one of our staff members. If you have questions before the competition, contact us. We will also be giving a new competitor tutorial at the beginning of the day.

If you do not arrive to help during your scheduled event, and there are not enough staff members, we reserve the right to disqualify you from competing.

Spectators and competitors may also partake in helping out if they are bored or want to pass the time. Whatever your reason is, competitions always need some extra help, so don't be shy!

Groups will be posted closer to the day of the competition and will also be emailed to all competitors. Stay tuned!

Live results will be posted at WCA Live. The link will be posted at a later time. Stay tuned for that as well!

This competition is organized by Cube New England, a group dedicated to growing the speedcubing community in New England, USA.
