The Unofficial Scuppernong Event was a team relay of 2x2, 3x3, and 4x4. In between solving each puzzle the competitors would then toss grapes ~10 feet apart into their partner's mouth. After 2 successful tosses the team would solve the next cube. After the last cube the team had to successfully catch one last grape in their mouth.

All Competitors

  • Shortly following the new competitor introduction at 9:30am on Saturday, we will also hold a judging tutorial at this time. All competitors should attend this tutorial. If you are a parent and would like to be entertained for the duration of the day, judging would be a great option for you!
  • Please try to arrive at least 30 minutes early for the events you are competing in to ensure that you are on time for that event.
  • You are expected to help judge. You must judge for at least one group of every event you compete in.
  • We will use regulation 9p3) for all final rounds. If you are not present when a final starts, you will be withdrawn from that final.
  • It would be wonderful if we could get some volunteer help from the parents. This would require either being present at the judging tutorial or to have someone teach you how to judge later in the day. Judge for however long you'd feel like. It's an excellent way to make the time fly by!
  • Your delegates for this competition are Cady Shields, Katie Hull, and Jacob Ambrose. Ask them if you have any questions throughout the day!

For those of you new to cubing, WELCOME!

We wanted to let you know this event is perfectly fine for cubers of any age and experience. We just ask you know a couple things before coming to compete...

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

This video will help explain most of what any cuber competing for the first time will need to know. It is highly suggested that parents watch this video as well.

If you have any questions after this video, we will be having a new competitor tutorial in the morning of the competition. That would be the perfect time to ask those questions and clear up any confusion.

If you are stoked to compete and ready to sign up, head over to the registration tab, click register, and fill out the information it asks for. This will help you get set up the WCA's system and one step closer to your first official solve!

Additionally:
* Please bring some for of identification. This will be used to verify your name, birthday, and nationality. (something like a passport or school ID).
* Please be familiar with all of WCA's regulations, most importantly Article A. If you have any questions about the regulations, feel free to ask us.
* In each event we will have rounds. We will take the top competitors on to the subsequent rounds. After a round is completed results will be entered into CubeComps. Your name will be highlighted if you made it to the next round.
* Each round will be divided into groups to help them run more efficiently. We will call the groups in order, along with a last call. Please come bring your solved puzzle up and wait in the competitor waiting area whenever your group is called. We are allowed to deny you the ability to compete if you do not come up by the last call. You can click on a tab at the bottom to see groups on a specific day.

Most competitions have a break for lunch, and the competing is split up into groups, as to better organize who competes when. (Check the Groups tab and listen at the competition for more info on this.)

On the schedule you may have noticed an "Unofficial Scuppernong Event". This event will recognize the North Carolina state fruit the Scuppernong grape! If you would like to read about the historic impact of scuppernongs on our state you can do so here: https://www.ncpedia.org/symbols/fruit
The details for the unofficial event:
You will need:
- A partner
- (1) 2x2
- (1) 3x3
- (1) 4x4
- grapes that will be provided
This event will be a 2x2 through 4x4 relay with a twist! Please make sure that at least one person from each pair knows how to solve a 2x2 through 4x4. Remember to bring a 2x2 through 4x4 to participate in this event. Borrowing is allowed but not guaranteed. Each pair will only need 1 of each puzzle, not two of each. This event will most likely take place outside so plan accordingly.
Instructions
Each pair will be given grapes to toss into each other’s mouths. On go, one individual can solve any of the three cubes. Once a 2x2, 3x3, or 4x4 is solved, a competitor must successfully toss two grapes into their partners mouth. The pair cannot proceed solving the puzzles until two grapes have been caught. Once caught, you can proceed to any of the remaining puzzles. After solving the second puzzle you repeat the process by catching two grapes again. After solving the final puzzle, you must catch one final grape. If and when a pair drops all of their grapes and refuses to reuse them, they will receive a DNF (we will have a lot of grapes available, you have to be really bad at throwing grapes to run out). Times will be recorded, and a pair will be crowned the SCUPPERNONG CHAMPIONS.
The grapes will be clean and safe to eat, but you do not have to eat them. If you are allergic to grapes please let us know so we can have an alternative for you.
