Registration Fee
There is a $10 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. You may choose at most 4 events to compete in. Registrations with 5 or more events selected will be rejected.

Students and Faculty of OSU can compete for free. Simply register and don't pay and you'll be approved. (Leave a comment with your registration if you think the organizers don't know you).

Please note that even after payment, registrations need to be manually approved before appearing on the registration list.

There is a 100 competitor limit to the competition. Registration closes at the end of the day on May 25th. We will grant refunds to those who let us know before May 25th, but no refunds are granted after that date.

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.

Lunch
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.

ALL COMPETITORS MUST READ THIS TAB BEFORE REGISTERING.

FOR FIRST-TIME COMPETITORS:
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.

ALL COMPETITORS:
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 either one group of that event or a group of a different 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, right before the start of the 3x3 Round 1 event. 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.

Venue

This competition will be held at the OSU Memorial Union in the Horizon Room (49) which is located in the East section on the mezzanine level.

4x4x4 Blindfolded, 5x5x5 Blindfolded, and 3x3x3 Multiple-Blindfolded will be held in a separate room from the main competition. They will be held in the Journey Room (104), which is a level above the Horizon Room.

The number of rounds for each event will depend upon final registration totals. Regardless of registration, 4x4x4, 5x5x5, 6x6x6, 7x7x7, Megaminx, 4x4x4 Blindfolded, 5x5x5 Blindfolded, and 3x3x3 Multiple Blindfolded will have only 1 round.

If 3x3x3, 2x2x2, 3x3x3 Blindfolded, 3x3x3 One-Handed, 3x3x3 With Feet, Clock, Pyraminx, Skewb, or Square-1 have at least 25 registered competitors, we guarantee that a second round will be held. If one of these events has 20 competitors or fewer, only one round will be held. If one of these events has between 20-25 competitors, we reserve the right to use our discretion on determining the number of rounds, depending on registration totals for other events. Some events are scheduled to have 2 rounds above due to our initial projections for event count totals, but these rounds may be cut if there is limited interest in the event.

Due to the nature of this event, this schedule is incredibly tentative. Please see the notes at the bottom of the page.

Notes:
1. 4x4x4 Blindfolded, 5x5x5 Blindfolded, and 3x3x3 Multiple Blindfolded will be happening throughout the day. We will assign you a time to compete based on when you will have time available.
2. The amount of time for each event is subject to change depending upon final registration totals. While we will try to avoid this, we may have to shift the ordering of events to accomodate for the longer blindfolded events.

This competition will be sponsored by TheCubicle.us! Thanks so much to them for their continued support.
