Information

3x3x3 Fewest Moves is the main event of this competition!

This is a quiet events competition. We will NOT be holding usual events like 3x3. If you are a new competitor or looking for more normal events, this probably isn't for you, and you may want to check out other local competitions. Spectators may attend for free, but you are likely to get bored very quickly as the events held are quite slow.

The competition will be held in Salisbury Labs 115 (SL 115), this building is across the fountain from the campus center. Parking can be found in any of the visitors lots on Institute Rd or on Boynton St. This is the room that Please Be Quiet WPI Spring 2019 happened in.
