Registration requirements

Competitors will need to pay in full in order to be approved. If there is an issue with payments online, we can have you pay in person in cash, but you will need to contact me letting me know you will be doing so and your reasoning for not being able to pay online. 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 April 14th. We will grant refunds to those who let us know by April 7th, but no refunds are granted after that date. If our registration fills up before registration closes and you register, you will need to confirm that you get an email confirming that you have been approved (not just registered).

Registration Fee:
There is a $14 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!
