This competition is being organized by Cubing Club at UCLA. All UCLA students may register free of charge; the fee is $14 for everyone else. There will be a competitor limit of 25, and no walk-in registrations. Spectators may attend for free, but must be quiet as the events being held require a lot of concentration on the part of the competitors.
If you are a UCLA student looking to attend a local competition but can't do the blindfolded events, note that we are planning another competition in the spring with more standard events such as 3x3x3 and pyraminx. Don't be afraid to show up to this one for a bit to spectate and/or help us out!
Please note that no food is allowed in the classroom.

This competition is being organized by Cubing Club at UCLA. All UCLA students may register free of charge (though if you wish to pay anyway, the money will go towards this and future cubing club events). Simply register via the link on the left and include in the comments that you are a UCLA student, but do not pay. Your registration will be manually approved shortly. You will need to show your Bruin card at the competition.
All other competitors must pay the $14 registration fee, also via the link on the left. Your registration will be manually confirmed after you pay, so it may not show up immediately. Please contact the organizers if your registration still hasn't shown up after several days.
There will be a competitor limit of 25. You must register online before registration closes; there will be no walk-in registrations. Spectators may attend for free, but must be quiet as the events being held require a lot of concentration on the part of the competitors.
