Q. How do I register for this competition?
A. Registration for this competition opens on Thursday, April 20 at 7:00 PM CDT and will be open until Friday, June 30 at 11:59 PM CDT. You'll need a WCA Account to register. Once registration has opened, you can register at the register button to your left or at this link. Select the events you'll be competing in, the number of guests you'll be bringing (this does not need to be an exact number, we just like an estimate) and any comments you'd like the organization team to know. After pressing Register, you'll be prompted to pay using Stripe. You must pay your registration fee to be eligible to compete. If there is still space in the competition and you do not receive an email saying your registration has been accepted within 48 hours of paying, please contact the organization team.
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.
Q. Who should I ask if I have any questions?
A. Your delegates for this competition are Carter Kucala, Joshua Feran, and Zeke Mackay. Please ask them if you have any questions.
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?
A. WCA Competitions are open to cubers of any age! 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 the 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. We would love to help you organize a comp anywhere in the area!
