Information

This competition has only blindfolded and fewest move events. Spectators and competitors must remain silent whenever anyone is competing, to allow for concentration.
Note that the only thing before lunch on Saturday is a Multi-Blind attempt. If you are not competiting in this event, or only want to do the later two attempts, you do not need to arrive until after lunch on Saturday.
In the event that we do not have enough (at least 16) competitors to allow for the third round of 3x3x3 Blindfolded, we will start Sunday 30 minutes later than scheduled.

This competition will have only no "normal" events, only Fewest Moves and blindolded events! If it is your first time competing in these events, please make sure you are familiar with the WCA regulations regarding Fewest Moves and blindfolded solving before the day of the competition.

If you don't want to compete in any of these events but would still like to come and watch, that is totally fine, as long as you make sure to remain quiet out of respect for the competitors. Any noise or distractions can ruin an attempt for someone, so anybody causing disruptions during any of our events will be asked to leave.

Parking information can be found here. The parking rate is at most $8 on weekends.

There will be food eateries open at The Nest, as well as the University Village within a few minutes walk.

Time limit

If you reach the time limit during your solve, the judge will stop you and your result will be DNF (see Regulation A1a4).
A cumulative time limit may be enforced (see Regulation A1a2).

Format

The format describes how to determine the ranking of competitors based on their results. The list of allowed formats per event is described in Regulation 9b. See Regulation 9f for a description of each format.
