ALL COMPETITORS MUST READ THIS TAB BEFORE REGISTERING.

FOR FIRST-TIME COMPETITORS:

There are multiple things a first-timer must know before competing. All newcomers must be familiar with the WCA Regulations before competing. There is a video here for the basic overview of the rules.

In addition, please read this document before coming to the competition to learn about the procedures for judging.

ALL COMPETITORS:

When you arrive, you will receive a card/nametag with personalized information detailing your events and what group you will be competing in for each event. In addition, you will also receive staffing assignments. All competitors are expected to help at this competition. For each event you sign up for, you will be assigned to help out for just one group of that event. If you do not arrive to help during your scheduled event, and there are not enough staff members, we reserve the right to disqualify you from competing. We hope that this system will fairly divide up the judging of the competition and make the competition run smoothly for all.

Lodging

If you'd like to stay in the same building as the competition venue, book your hotel room at the link here. You can also call 503-221-0140 to book a room.

Venue

The competition will be held in the Willamette Ballroom at the University Place Hotel on Portland State University's campus.

Travel

Driving

Parking in the hotel's lot is $3 an hour, $12 a day, or $15 overnight. Many lots on the PSU campus offer a much cheaper hourly and daily rate. A map of available parking options on PSU's campus can be found here, and a list of rates for each of these locations can be found here. Privately owned lots may be even cheaper for parking.

Transit

If you live locally, transit may be the easiest and cheapest option for you to come to the competition. The SW Lincoln St stop on the Orange line is right in front of the venue. The venue is also quite close to the downtown end of the Green line, and is four stops away from the Red/Blue lines. Several bus lines also serve Portland State. Check your transit directions using this link.

This competition will be sponsored by TheCubicle! Thanks so much to them for their continued support.
