Registration Fee:
There is a $15 registration fee for the event, payable through the WCA Stripe payment system. Please note that even after payment, registrations need to be manually approved before appearing on the registration list, so you may still not be fully confirmed immediately after payment. Please keep an eye out for the e-mail saying you have been approved. Registration is on a first-come first-serve and the same will go for the waitlist once registration fills up. Please do not register unless you intend on competing as it will open up a spot for another competitor who does intend on competing.

We will only be accepting online payment at this competition. If you have any issues with this, please contact us!

There is a 110 competitor limit to the competition. Please register as soon as possible if you plan on coming! Registration closes at the end of the day on December 1st. We will grant 50% refunds to those who let us know by December 1st, but no refunds are granted after that date.

This competition is recognized as an official World Cube Association competition. Therefore, all competitors should be familiar with the WCA regulations. If you are new to competing, you may want to look at CubingUSA's Competitor Tutorial.
