Registration Information:

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. Despite the use of the Stripe payment system, organizers still have to manually move competitors to the approved competitor list following payment.

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.

Waitlist Information:

We will be keeping a waitlist for this competition. Once the 110th competitor has paid, we will not close registration until we have a waitlist of 15 competitors (not including the 110 who will be/are listed on the competitors tab). 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, you will be notified if you are the next competitor on the waitlist. If you see that you cannot pay to be on the waitlist (registration will have closed), it means we have reached the waitlist threshold (15) and have therefore closed registration.

If you are emailed notifying you that you can compete, you have 48 hours to respond confirming your attendance before your registration will be refunded and we move on to the next competitor. Therefore, it is imperative that you check your emails frequently if you are 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.

Registration Information:

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

How to Register Online
The competitor limit for this competition is 110.
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 cost of $25.00. (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. Despite the use of the Stripe payment system, organizers still have to manually move competitors to the approved competitor list following payment.

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."

Withdrawing Registration
If you have registered and are no longer able to attend, please contact us via email.
If you withdraw your registration before registration closes (Friday, October 5, 2018, 8:00 PM EDT), you are eligible for a refund of your registration cost. There will be no refunds issued after Friday, October 5, 2018, 8:00 PM EDT. 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 we have a waitlist of 15 competitors (not including the 100 who will be/are listed on the competitors tab). 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, you will be notified if you are the next competitor on the waitlist. If you see that you cannot pay to be on the waitlist (registration will have closed), it means we have reached the waitlist threshold (15) and have therefore closed registration.

If you are emailed notifying you that you can compete, you have 48 hours to respond confirming your attendance before your registration will be refunded and we move on to the next competitor. Therefore, it is imperative that you check your emails frequently if you are 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.

ALL COMPETITORS MUST READ THIS TAB BEFORE REGISTERING.

NEWCOMERS:

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.

ALL COMPETITORS:

All competitors are expected to help out at this competition. In addition to your competing groups, all competitors will receive groups in which they are expected to either judge, scramble, or run. All assignments will be organized by group, meaning that when we call a particular group of an event up to compete, if you are scheduled to judge/scramble/run during that group, you will come up and start performing your assigned task. If you do not show up for your assignments, your times may be subject to disqualification.
