Registration requirements

However, your registration will not be confirmed unless you pay online or let us know in your comments that you will be paying in cash at the venue. Please note that even after registering, the organizers need to manually approve the registrations before appearing on the registration list, so you may still not be fully confirmed immediately after registering. 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.

There is a 120 competitor limit for this competition. We will try to expand the competitor limit if registration quickly fills. If the competitor limit does not get reached, we will accept registrations the day of the competition, however we can only allow you to compete in 3x3x3. Registration will close July 13th.

ALL COMPETITORS MUST READ THIS TAB BEFORE REGISTERING.

FOR FIRST-TIME COMPETITORS:

There are multiple things a first-timer must know before competing. All newcomers must be familiar with the WCA Regulations before competing. There is a video here for the basic overview of the rules.

In addition, please read this document before coming to the competition to learn about the procedures for judging. Thanks to Olivér Perge and Niki Placskó for providing this detailed judging information document.

ALL COMPETITORS:

When you arrive, you will receive a card/nametag with personalized information detailing your events and what group you will be competing in for each event. In addition, you will also receive staffing assignments. All competitors are expected to help at this competition. For each event you sign up, you will be assigned to help out for just one group of that event. If you do not arrive to help during your scheduled event, and there are not enough staff members, we reserve the right to disqualify you from competing.

We will provide a judging tutorial at the beginning of the day, right before the start of the pyraminx speedsolve event. This will allow anyone with questions about how to judge to be properly prepared when they are expected to help. We hope that this system will fairly divide up the judging of the competition and make the competition run smoothly for all.

T-Shirts

We will have T-shirts for sale beforehand. We will not have T-shirts for sale in person! Email Daniel (dan.scheiter@gmail.com) if you are interested in purchasing a shirt. We are not sure of the price yet, but we will be sure to get that here ASAP!

Dinner/Q&A

On Friday night there will be a dinner followed by a Q&A. The Q&A will feature Feliks Zemdegs and possibly some other world-class cubers. We will be starting the Q&A no later than 6:15pm (might move to 6:00), thus giving a little bit of time to go get food beforehand and bring it back if you'd like. If you'd like to stay at the venue, the concession stand will be selling pizza on-site. We will hopefully have the Q&A livestreamed on Twitch and will keep this page updated if anything changes!
