Blindfolded events only
The only events at this competition are blindfolded events, which require a significant amount of practice and concentration. All attendees, including competitors and guests, are asked to please remain quiet at this competition to allow competitors to concentrate.
FMC Canada connection
This competition is happening on the same day as FMC Canada 2023 in the same venue as the Pickering, ON location. You are welcome to register for one or both competitions, but please note that you need to register for FMC Canada 2023 separately.
This competition will be held during the morning and evening, with FMC Canada 2023 happening during the afternoon (Eastern Time).
Note for new competitors
Although first-timers are welcome to compete if they know how to solve puzzles blindfolded (please note Regulation 2k6), this might not be the best experience for new competitors. Please consider registering for another competition if this one isn't for you.

Health and Safety Policy
Competitors must read the Health and Safety Policy prior to registering.
Space is limited in the venue and our priority is allowing as many competitors as possible to compete within our limited venue space. Competitors may bring at most one (1) guest.
Registrants must pay the registration fee in order to be added to the competitor list. Unpaid registrations will not be accepted. Organizers manually accept registrations one at a time in the order the registration fees are paid, so your name may not appear on the competitor list immediately.
Once the competitor list reaches the 40 competitor limit, registrants who pay the registration fee will be added to the waiting list instead of the competitor list. Due to the competitor limit, completing your registration within the initial registration period does not guarantee you a spot on the competitor list.
The waiting list is ordered based on the timestamp that registrants paid the registration fee. If you are added to the waiting list you will be informed via an email. Additionally, you can ask about your position on the waiting list by emailing Speedcubing Canada.
If anyone on the competitor list deletes their registration, the person at the top of the waiting list will be moved to the competitor list. After June 12, 2023, the competitor list will be finalized and registrants who are still on the waiting list will be refunded 100% of their registration fee. Registrants on the waiting list may email Speedcubing Canada at any time to forfeit their spot on the waiting list and be refunded 100% of their registration fee.
If the competitor list fills up quickly, registration could close earlier than the originally listed date (June 12, 2023). The waiting list will close at the same time that registration closes.
