** In events with a "cutoff," every competitor gets two attempts to complete a solve faster than the cutoff time. If you complete at least one of your two attempts faster than the cutoff time, you will be allowed to finish an average. Otherwise, your first two times will be recorded as your result.

*** These time limits are strict times after which the judge will stop you, and your result will be recorded as a DNF (Did Not Finish). Once you have recorded two DNFs, your average will be recorded as DNF.

This event is open to cubers of any age and experience. For those of you new to cubing, welcome! We just ask that you know a couple things before coming to compete...

First, please be familiar with the WCA Regulations, found here:
https://www.worldcubeassociation.org/regulations/

Of course, those regulations contain a lot of legalese, so below we have put a video made specifically for new cubers, just to show them the basics of competing. This video will explain most of what a first timer will need to know.

FAQ:
Q: Are there any restriction on competing?
A: Nope! Anyone of any skill can compete in this competition, including first-timers. As long as you know how to solve the cube, go ahead and sign up!

Q: Do spectators have to pay?
A: No! All spectators are let into building for free.

Q: Do I use my own cube to compete?
A: Yes! You are responsible for your own hardware in order to compete.

Q: How do I find results?
A: All results are posted on the WCA page a couple of days after the competition finishes. However, for the day of competing, go to cubecomps.com to find information about current events.

Q: Why am I not on the registration list yet?
A: When you register, make sure you have paid the registration fee. Afterwards, your registration must then be manually accepted, so please wait at least 24 hours before contacting us. You should receive an email when your registration is accepted.

Q: What is the normal age of competitors at these events?
A: All ages are welcome, but in general competitors are between 10 and 20 years old. Don't let this stop you though, everyone can and should cube!

Q: Are there age divisions?
A: Nope! All competitors compete in the same group.

If you have any other questions feel free to contact us!
