Limit for 4x4x4 and 5x5x5 Blindfolded:

These events are limited to 20 competitors only, to comply with space restrictions. These spaces will be allocated in order of payment. If the 20 person limit is exceeded and you register and pay and have 4BLD and/or 5BLD selected as events, your registration will be adjusted to remove these events and you will be added to a separate waiting list for those events. People withdrawing from the competition or those events specifically will enable those from the waiting list to be added. For the purposes of the limit the events will be treated as combined (i.e. there will be 20 competitors in the room when 4bld and 5bld are taking place - those competitors could be doing one of the events or both).
