This is the second annual CubingUSA Southern Championship, part of a series of Regional Championships supported by CubingUSA. The goal of these competitions is to allow competitors from all over the country to compete for regional titles. The Southern region is comprised of New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Mississippi.

While only residents of the southern states are eligible to win the title of Southern Champion, residents of any state or country are welcome to compete. This competition also serves as a Nationals qualifying competition, so your results could enable you to compete at CubingUSA Nationals 2019.

Find out more about CubingUSA and Regional Championships

We ask that competitors expecting to have a chance at a Southern Champion title bring proof of residence (current driver's license or school ID, etc.)

More information regarding eligibility can be found here.

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/

We have a video made specifically for new cubers, just to show them the basics of competing. This video will explain most of what any cuber competing for the first time will need to know.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dPL3eV-A0ww&t=2s

If you have any questions after this video, we will be having a new competitor tutorial, Saturday 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!

Q&A:

Q: Do I use my own cube to compete?

A: YES! You are responsible for your own hardware in order to compete.

Q: What is the normal age of competitors at these events?

A: All ages are welcome, but in general competitors are between 10 and 20 years old. Don't let this stop you though, everyone can and should cube!

Q: What is the competition like?

A; Competitions are a bunch of tables where nerds like us get to sit and discuss our favorite thing, Cubes! Of course in addition there is competing, which will occupy one side of the competition hall, where you will see lots of timers flickering with contestants new personal bests, and a vendor, where you can purchase all you cubing related needs. Most competitions have a break for lunch, and the competing is split up into heats, as to better organize who competes when. (Check the Groups tab and listen at the competition for more info on this.)

Q: How do I find results?

A: All results are posted on the WCA page a couple of 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.

Q: Why am I not on the registration list yet?

A: Make sure you pay you entrance fee in order to be automatically 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 competition. No matter what you situation may be however, please register online. It is much easier for us to have you register now and pay later, then to have to input information at another time.

Q: Are there age divisions?

A: Nope! All cometitors compete in the same group.

Q: Can I have fun at this event?

A: HECK YES! Cubing is amazing, and we sincerely hope you enjoy the competition!

ALL COMPETITORS MUST READ THIS TAB BEFORE REGISTERING.
If you are a first time competitor, please read this section carefully. If you are a returning competitor, please skip to the next section.

NEWCOMERS:

There are multiple things a first-timer must know before competing. All newcomers must be familiar with the WCA Regulations before competing. Please read the other tab specifically for new competitors.

In addition, please read this document before coming to the competition. Huge thanks to Olivér Perge and Niki Placskó for the document!

ALL COMPETITORS:

Please read this section carefully. We will have a change in organization for this competition modeled off of Hungarian competitions in Europe. When you arrive, you will receive a lanyard with personalized information detailing your events and what group you will be competing in for each event. In addition, you will also have staff assignments on your lanyard. Every competitor is expected to help out this competition. The card will look somewhat like the following:

John Doe
WCA ID: 2018DOEJ01

Event Solving Scramble Judging
2x2x2 2 1
3x3x3 1 3 4
4x4x4 3 1

Numbers in each column represent the group you'll be solving or staffing. For example, John Doe is assigned to judge for group 1 of 2x2x2 while he will be competing in the group 2 for 2x2x2 event. He is also assigned as a scrambler for group 3 of 3x3x3 while also assigned as a judge for the group 4 / compete in the group 1 for 3x3x3.

Please note that everyone is expected to help only during the events they are registered for, and everyone need only help for one group per 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.
