Q. What time should I arrive at the competition?
If you are competing in 3x3x3 Fewest Moves please aim to arrive at 8:20 so we can begin on time. In general you should be at the venue ready to compete 20 minutes before the scheduled start of your event. Please note the schedule is subject to change on the day. If you are participating in 3x3x3 Multi-Blind you must submit your cubes by 9 am (unless you are also competing in 3x3x3 Fewest Moves in which case you must submit them before 8:30).
Q. Will I be able to compete in 3x3x3 Cube and other typical events?
NO! This competition involves traditionally "slow" events that are not held frequently (or have never been held) in Perth.
