Before the competition, you will receive a card/nametag with personalized information detailing your events and what group you will be competing in for each event in an email. We will be relying on competitors to help by judging whenever they are not competing. Judging is very easy, and is a great way to make time fly!

We will provide a judging and competitor tutorial at the beginning of the day, right before the start of Skewb, which will also overview our new procedures. This will allow anyone with questions about how to judge to be properly prepared when they are expected to help.

We will need help judging for the second/final rounds of events as we can not assign staff for those in advance. Spectators 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.


Due to ongoing circumstances, the organizing team is enforcing restrictions during the competition which will impact the running of the competition. Here are the most important changes.

  1. Competitors should not attend the competition if experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, or if they were exposed to someone with COVID-19. If this occurs to you, the organizers will offer the competitor a full refund.
  2. You are only permitted to bring one guest to the competition. Bringing more than one guest may result in disqualification.
  3. Competitors attending Pikes Peak Good Afternoon are not permitted to stay in the venue for the Morning competition.
  4. The organizing team strongly recommends to recieve a COVID-19 vaccination before competing. This is not a requirement, but is encouraged. For information on, and finding vaccines near you, please use this website!
  5. Masks are recommended at this event.
  6. Hand sanitizer and disinfection wipes will be avaliable for use at the competitor's discretion..
  7. Officials and staff will be following special procedures to continue to lower chance of transmission of COVID-19, such as utilizing sanitizer frequently and distancing.

Q: Do spectators have to pay?
A: No! All spectators are let into building for free, but keep in mind you can only bring two!

Q: Do I use my own cube to compete?
A: Yes! You are responsible for your own hardware in order to compete. We heavily discourage borrowing or sharing other people's cubes at the competition.

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 wca.link/live to find information about current events.

Q: Why am I not on the registration list yet?

Q: Do I have to wear a face covering at this competition?
A. No. They are not required by the venue but we still encourage that you wear one.

Q: Why can I not bring more than one spectators to the competition?
A. Due to venue size, we are limiting the number of people in the venue to make sure guests can socially distance from one another during the competition. Because of this, competitors must bring one spectators at maximum, or attend the competition alone. The organizing team strongly reccomends the latter.
