ALL COMPETITORS MUST READ THIS TAB BEFORE REGISTERING.
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.
All competitors are expected to help out at this competition. In addition to your competing groups, all competitors will receive groups in which they are expected to either judge, scramble, or run. All assignments will be organized by group, meaning that when we call a particular group of an event up to compete, if you are scheduled to judge/scramble/run during that group, you will come up and start performing your assigned task. If you do not show up for your assignments, your times may be subject to disqualification.
The venue is the Frist Campus Center Multipurpose Room, which can be found on the bottom floor of the Frist Campus Center.
Rules for parking on campus can be found here.
All visitors may access and park in Lot 21.
