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 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, right before the start of the 3x3x3 speedsolve 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.

Lodging

NEW: If you plan on staying in the same hotel as the venue itself, you can get a Portland State discount on your rate. Just book at the link here and use the promo code "A1234" to receive the discount. Military, AAA, and AARP discounts are better than this though, so don't use this code if you qualify for one of those.

Venue

The competition will be held in the Willamette Ballroom at the University Place Hotel on Portland State University's campus.

Travel

Driving

Parking in the hotel's lot is $3 an hour, $12 a day, or $15 overnight. Many lots on the PSU campus offer a much cheaper hourly and daily rate. A map of available parking options on PSU's campus can be found here, and a list of rates for each of these locations can be found here.

Transit

If you live locally, transit may be the easiest and cheapest option for you to come to the competition. The SW Lincoln St stop on the Orange line is right in front of the venue. The venue is also quite close to the Green line, and is four stops away from the Red/Blue lines. Several bus lines also serve Portland State. Check your transit directions using the map tool above.

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

Gift card prizes will be given out to all who place in the top 3 of each event. For 3x3x3, the third prize is $15, second prize is $25, and first prize is $35. For all other events, third prize is $5, second prize is $7, and first prize is $10.

When checking in to the competition, each competitor will receive 3 tokens. There will be several buckets for each charity we will be supporting at this competition, and we will donate on your behalf (using your registration fee) to each charity based on which tokens you place in each bin. If a charity collects 20% of the tokens, we will donate 20% of the donation pool to that charity.

If you pay beyond the $20 registration fee, every $3 you donate will give you an additional token!

The 3 local charities we have chosen to receive donations this year are:

Time limit

If you reach the time limit during your solve, the judge will stop you and your result will be DNF (see Regulation A1a4).
A cumulative time limit may be enforced (see Regulation A1a2).

Cutoff

The result to beat to proceed to the second phase of a combined round (see Regulation 9g).

Format

The format describes how to determine the ranking of competitors based on their results. The list of allowed formats per event is described in Regulation 9b. See Regulation 9f for a description of each format.
