Q. How can I prepare for the competition day?
A. Competitors should understand the WCA Regulations before competing. For something a little more digestable, you can read the WCA Competitor Tutorial or watch this video guide. We will have a New Competitor Tutorial at the beginning of the day where you can learn and ask questions.

A. The delegates for this competition are Carter Kucala, Lisa Kucala, Shain Longbehn, Simon Kellum, and Zeke Mackay. The organizer is Andrew Tyberg. Please ask them if you have any questions. Contact link
Q. What are groups? How can I find which ones I'm in?
A. Groups are how we determine when each competitor competes. During each round, we will have several groups that will be called up in succession. When the group in which you're supposed to compete is called, please come up to the cube dropoff table and submit your puzzle. When the group you're judging is called, come up and find an empty station to judge. Groups will be emailed to competitors or in a tab on this website in the week leading up to the competition.
Q. Do competitors need to volunteer? How do I do that?
A. We require that all competitors volunteer as Judges during the competition day. You will be assigned a group to judge in. We will go over judging in our New Competitor Tutorial.
Q. How old do I have to be to compete? How old are most competitors?
A. WCA Competitions are open to cubers of any age! The majority of competitors are between the ages of 10 and 25, but anyone can compete and we frequently have competitors younger and much older than this. We do not have age groups so all competitors compete with each other.
Q. What do I need to bring to the competition?
A. You'll need to bring the puzzles required for any event you'll be competing in. Most competitors like to bring other cubes to warm up with. All timing equipment will be supplied by the WCA Delegates at the competition.
Q. Where can I find results for this competition?
A. Live results will be visible on WCA Live and will be posted on the WCA Website shortly after the competition. If it's your first competition, you'll get a WCA ID when results are posted to the WCA Website.
Q. How can I have a competition in my hometown?
A. You can contact the Wisconsin delegates by email here, and the Minnesota delegates here. We would love to help you organize a comp anywhere in the area!
