The registration fee for this competition is $20.00. The WCA Stripe payment system is being used for this competition. You will be prompted to pay following registration. You are not considered registered until you pay. Any requested changes to registration before the deadline will be honored before registration is closed.

If you paid but don't see your name on the registration list within 48 hours, please email the organizers.

You must register and pay online to compete. No at-the-door registrations or payments will be accepted under any circumstances. We realize this may not be ideal for some people, but this allows us to have an exact count of people attending and lets us use staff resources more effectively the day of the competition. Spectators may attend for free.

If you have registered and are no longer able to attend, please contact us. If it is before March 13th at 8:00PM local time, you are eligible for a full refund. Attempting to file a chargeback for the registration fee will lead to being blacklisted from future WCA events.
