Due to ongoing circumstances, the organizing team is enforcing restrictions during the competition:

  • Competitors should not attend the competition if experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, or if they were exposed to someone with COVID-19. If this occurs to you, the organizers will offer the competitor a full refund.
  • Masks are required only for those who are not fully vaccinated as per the state requirement.
  • If you have symptoms related to COVID-19 such as cough, fever, shortness of breath, etc. you should not attend this competition.
  • If you have had a positive COVID-19 test or prolonged exposure to someone with the virus within 14 days prior to the competition, you should not attend.
  • Attendees should maintain a minimum of 3ft from others whenever possible.
  • The organizing team strongly recommends to recieve a COVID-19 vaccination before competing. This is not a requirement, but is encouraged. For information on, and finding vaccines near you, please use this website!

For general competing and staffing, these are the changes that will impact the running of the competition.

  • Competitors are strongly encouraged to bring their own pen for the duration of the competition.
  • When not competing, competitors and spectators should attempt to socially distance whenever possible by keeping 3 feet away from others. We also encourage you to not share puzzles with other competitors.
  • Hand sanitizer and disinfection wipes will be widely avaliable for use at the competitor's pleasure. Organizers will encourage throughout the day to utilize these items.
  • The competition will be using a fixed seating system, rather than a standard waiting area. This means when you compete, you will complete all of your attempts in one sitting with the same judge. instead of being called to a different station for each attempt.
  • You will submit your cube at your station, rather than at a designated table.
  • After every attempt, rather than the judge putting the puzzle in the cover, the competitor is asked to put the cube into the cover at the end of the attempt. The judge will only put in the scorecard.
  • After you finish competing, you or your judge will disinfect the station with a disinfection wipe.
  • Officials and staff will be following special procedures to continue to lower chance of transmission of COVID-19, such as utilizing sanitizer frequently and distancing.
  • You may find our full mitigation procedures using our Risk Management Plan.

BY REGISTERING, YOU AGREE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND AND WILL FOLLOW ALL THE INFORMATION LISTED ABOVE.

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 and competing:
https://www.worldcubeassociation.org/files/WCA_Competition_Tutorial.pdf

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 for, 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 right before the start of the 3x3x3 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.

WCA competitions are operating under regulations enacted on 5/1 to address safety concerns regarding COVID as well as new permanent regulations for competitions. All competitors are required to read the "COVID-19 Safety" tab for more information as well as be familiar with the regulations listed below:

New Regulations
1) The competitor must have no physical contact with the puzzle cover while starting the attempt on Blindfolded events.
2) Require the competitor to finish signing (not just for the judge to finish signing) before the competitor may reset the timer.

You can find a full summary of the new regulations here.

Temporary regulations

1) Competitors are requested to bring their own pens.
2) There will be fixed seating for all events, with no competitor waiting area. Competitors will perform all solves for a particular round at the same station and remain there between solves.
3) Competitors should refrain from touching the surface of the solving station when they are not in the process of an official attempt.
4) Judges should refrain from touching the puzzle at all times.
5) Judges will ask the competitor to prepare the timer for each attempt (turning on/off, resetting as necessary).
6) After finishing an attempt, if there are more attempts to be done, the competitor must place the puzzle inside the cover.

You can find the rest of the temporary regulations here.

If the competitior limit has been reached, any registrations made after that fulfill the registration requirements will be added to the waitlist below:
