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 and Guidelines, found below:
Regulations: https://www.worldcubeassociation.org/regulations/
Guidelines: https://www.worldcubeassociation.org/regulations/guidelines.html#

This video will explain most of what any cuber competing for the first time will need to know.

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!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Q: Do I use my own cube to compete?
A: YES! You are responsible for having your own puzzle in order to compete. This means bringing your own cube, or arranging to borrow a cube from a friend.

Q: What is the normal age of competitors at these events?
A: All ages are welcome, but generally competitors are between 10 and 20 years old. Don't let this stop you though, everyone can and should cube!

Q: What do I do when I walk in?
A: There is NO CHECK-IN. If you registered online, just have fun and hang out with other cubers. We will be calling people up, so just wait for your name/group to be announced. If you aren't competing in the blind events in the morning, you do not have to show up until after lunch.

Q: How do I find results?
A: All results are posted on the WCA page a few days after the competition finishes. However, for the day of competing, go to cubecomps.com to find information about current events. This is also where you will find information about 2nd and 3rd rounds of events. Remember, the results are entered by a human so please be patient if you do not see your results immediately.

Q: Why am I not on the registration list yet?
A: Make sure you pay you entrance fee in order to be placed on the registered list, which will also guarantee you a spot in the competition. If payment may be any issue, or you are not sure if you can attend, use the contact button to talk to us, and see if we can work out another payment strategy, or have you pay on arrival at the compeition. No matter what your situation may be however, please register online. Additionally, registrations are approved manually by a person so please be patient.

Q: Are there age divisions?
A: Nope! All competitors compete together.

Q: And my guests? What will they do?
A: They will cheer you on, be your moral support and help with your photos and filming. Guests are expected to give priority round table seating to cubers, but there will be seats for guests in the hall. All spectators (and competitors) also must remain silent during the blind events in the morning to allow competitors to concentrate.

Q: Can I have fun at this event?
A: Yup! Cubing is great, and we hope you enjoy the competition!
