Covid-19 Safety

Note: All of these regulations are subject to change based on new guidance from Boston University, and local/federal governments. The finalized guidelines will be included in a pre-competition email about a week before the competition.

All competitors and guests will be required to wear a mask anytime they are inside the venue. The only exception is for eating or drinking, which we ask is done quickly. Having a water bottle nearby is not an excuse to not be wearing a mask.

There is no limitations on guests, competitors may bring as many guests as they like and spectators may attend without being a guest of a competitor.

Venue entrance policy:

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 $40.00. (The registration cost is the same, regardless of how many events are selected.)
Your registration is not complete until you have paid the registration fee.

PLEASE NOTE: If you paid but don't see your name on the registration list within 48 hours of payment (assuming 300 competitors aren't on the competitor list already), please email the organizers. Organizers still have to manually move competitors to the approved competitor list following payment.

Registering and paying demonstrates your commitment to attend the competition. However, if you have registered and are no longer able to attend, please contact us via email.

Refunds

If you withdraw your registration before registration closes (Sunday, May 15, 2022, 11:59 PM EDT), you are eligible for a refund for half (50%) of your registration cost. After this date, no refund requests will be honored. Tips are not considered part of the registration fee and are non-refundable.

We will be keeping a waitlist for this competition. Once the 300th competitor has paid, we will not close registration until Sunday, May 15, 2022, 11:59 PM EDT. To secure a place on the waitlist once 300 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.

Groups and Staffing Assignments:

Groups for this competition can be found at the link below.
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1-M0viGmnwW8Rf07iUDxvjWsPADq_cIEu/view?usp=sharing

In addition to competing, everyone will be required to help out in either judging, or for more experienced competitiors/staff, scrambling and running as well. These assignments will be on a lanyard that competitors can pick up at the door.

How to read your nametag:
-A single number means you are competing in that group. If you miss your group for an event, you will not be allowed to compete later, unless a scheduling error was made on our part.
-A letter followed by a number means you are doing a task for that group. S means scrambling, R means running, J means judging. These tasks are mandatory and we reserve the right to disqualify you from some or all of your events if you do not complete your tasks.

We will be running a judging tutorial along with the competitor tutorial at the beginning of each day, and at the end of lunch of each day. If you do not know how to judge, that is a great place to learn. If you would like to learn beforehand, we would recommend watching Cyotheking's competitor tutorial, as that also goes over some of judging.

Live results will be posted day of to WCA Live.
