ALL COMPETITORS MUST READ THIS TAB BEFORE REGISTERING.

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. We will do our best to assign groups to competitors in the events they are competing in, but you may be required to judge an event you aren't competing in.

We will provide a judging tutorial at the beginning of the day, right before the start of 3x3. 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.

We will need help judging for the second/final rounds of events as we can not assign staff for those in advance. Parents and guests are encouraged to learn how to judge; you do not need to know how to cube in order to be a great judge. Having enough judges ensures that we stay on schedule and are able to leave on time.

This event is open to cubers of any age and experience. For those of you new to cubing, welcome! We just ask that you know a couple things before coming to compete...

First, please be familiar with the WCA Regulations, found here.

Below we have put a video made specifically for new cubers, just to show them the basics of competing. This video will explain most of what a first timer will need to know, but they should still be familiar with all the regulations.

FAQ:
Q: Are there any restriction on competing?
A: Nope! Anyone of any skill can compete in this competition, including first-timers. As long as you know how to solve the cube, go ahead and sign up!

Q: Do spectators have to pay?
A: No! All spectators are let into building for free.

Q: Do I use my own cube to compete?
A: Yes! You are responsible for your own hardware in order to compete.

Q: How do I find results?
A: All results are posted on the WCA page a couple of days after the competition finishes. However, for the day of competing, go to cubecomps.com to find information about current events.

Q: Why am I not on the registration list yet?
A: When you register, make sure you have paid the registration fee. Afterwards, your registration must then be manually accepted, so please wait at least 24 hours before contacting us. You should receive an email when your registration is accepted.

Q: What is the normal age of competitors at these events?
A: All ages are welcome, but in general competitors are between 10 and 20 years old. Don't let this stop you though, everyone can cube!

Q: Are there age divisions?
A: Nope! All competitors compete in the same group.

If you have any other questions feel free to contact us!
