  • 3x3x3
  • 2x2x2
  • 3x3x3 BLD
  • Pyraminx

Additional Events:

The Rio Grande Valley is a long drive away from the rest of Texas, which has led to a small turnout at past competitions in this area. Due to this, additional events will be added based on competitor interest (and time availability). Want to compete in 4x4? Square-1? Multi-BLD? Send us an email and we will consider adding it to the schedule.

Update: By popular demand, 3x3 one-handed, 4x4, Skewb, and Clock have been added to the schedule. If we are ahead of schedule as planned, another event and/or round will be added. Registration for these events will take place the morning of the competition.

Note that the schedule is tentative and we will try to start the next event as early as possible to finish the competition on time.
