Information

Blindfolded events only

The only events at this competition are blindfolded events, which require a significant amount of learning, practice and concentration. All attendees, including competitors and guests, are asked to please remain quiet at this competition to allow competitors to concentrate.

FMC Canada connection

This competition will be held during the morning/early afternoon on the same day as FMC Canada in the same venue as the Pickering, ON location. You are welcome to register for one or both competitions, but please note that you would need to register for FMC Canada separately.

Note for new competitors

Although first-timers are welcome to compete if they know how to solve puzzles blindfolded (please note Regulation 2k6), this might not be the best experience for new competitors. Please consider registering for another competition if this one isn't for you.

Health and Safety (COVID-19) Protocols

Competitors may bring at most one (1) guest. Competitors over the age of 18 are encouraged to come without a guest.

Competitors must read the Health and Safety Protocols prior to registering.

Competitor List

Registrants must pay the registration fee in order to be added to the competitor list. Organizers manually accept registrations one at a time in the order the registration fees are paid, so you may have to wait a while before your name could show up on the competitor list.

Once the competitor list reaches the 20 competitor limit, registrants who pay the registration fee will be added to the waiting list instead of the competitor list. Due to the competitor limit, completing your registration within the initial registration period does not guarantee you a spot on the competitor list.

Waiting List

The waiting list is ordered based on the timestamp that registrants paid the registration fee. For privacy reasons, this list is not available to the public. If you are added to the waiting list you will be informed via an email from the Organization team.

Anyone on the waiting list who wishes to be removed from the waiting list may contact the organizers to delete their registration and be refunded 100% of their registration fee.

If the competitor list fills up quickly, registration could close earlier than the originally listed date (November 15, 2022). The waiting list will close at the same time that registration closes.

If anyone on the competitor list deletes their registration, the person at the top of the waiting list will be moved to the competitor list. After November 26, 2022, the competitor list will be finalized and registrants who are still on the waiting list will be refunded 100% of their registration fee.
