There is a $15 registration fee for the event, payable through the WCA Stripe payment system. Your registration will not be confirmed (moved from the waiting list) until payment has been completed.

This competition is recognized as an official World Cube Association competition. Therefore, all competitors should be familiar with the WCA regulations. If you are new to competing, you may want to look at CubingUSA's Competitor Tutorial.

There are a variety of food option in the Memorial Union. These options include Panda Express, Togo's (sandwhiches), and Joe's Burgers. There are a couple other cafe style restaurants as well as a small convenient store style shop. Of course, you are also welcome to go elsewhere on or off campus for lunch.


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.

In addition, please read this document before coming to the competition to learn about the procedures for judging. Thanks to Olivér Perge and Niki Placskó for providing this detailed judging information document.

When you arrive, you will receive a card/nametag with personalized information detailing your events and what group you will be competing in for each event. In addition, you will also receive staffing assignments. All competitors are expected to help at this competition. For each event you sign up for, you will be assigned to help out for just one group of that event. 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.

We will provide a judging tutorial at the beginning of the day. This will allow anyone with questions about how to judge to be properly prepared when they are expected to help. We hope that this system will fairly divide up the judging of the competition and make the competition run smoothly for all.


This competition will be held at the OSU Memorial Union in the Journey Room (104) which is located in the East section on the first floor.


A detailed map of parking options on OSU can be found here.

On weekends, permits are NOT required to park in commuter parking lots. These lots are marked on the map found here. Unfortunately, payment and meters are still required and enforced. More parking information can be found here. NOTE: Do not park in spaces marked for resident, reserved, dedicated, and service parking. These spaces require a permit at all times.

Note: There is a home football game at OSU this weekend which will likely effect parking. It's recommended to leave a little early and allow for some extra time to park.
