ALL COMPETITORS MUST READ THIS BEFORE REGISTERING

On the morning of the competition, you will receive a lanyard with personalized information detailing your events and what group you will be competing in for each event. We will be relying on competitors to help by judging throughout the course of the competition.

We will provide a competitor tutorial that will include a judging tutorial at the beginning of the day. This tutorial will be right before the first round of 2x2. This will allow anyone with questions about how to judge to be properly prepared when they are expected to help. Parents and guests are encouraged to learn how to judge. You do not need to know how to cube in order to be a great judge. Having enough judges ensures that we stay on schedule and are able to leave on time.

Thank you for your cooperation to help this be an awesome competition!

This event is open to cubers of any age and experience. For those of you new to cubing, welcome! We just ask that you know a couple things before coming to compete...
