Bears, roaming down the streets, vending machines with vodka, street musicians playing balalaika, birches, matryoshkas, Topol-M... All this is difficult to find in Russia, but here you can visit speedcubing competition Svetlye Gory Open 2017.

"Svetlye Gory" in translation from Russian means "Bright Mountains". You might think that this is the name of the school, hosting the competition, but no, this means that the lightning in the competition room is all OK.
Overseas, there is a very common stereotype, that we, Russians, are very 'crazy'. We have decided to follow it and made the semifinals in the format "Best of 1". Well and what, imagine that Feliks, for example, has decided to visit our comp (sorry, Feliks [​IMG]). So, hi had easily gone to the semi-finals from the first place, and now he comes to the stage to the song "like a boss"... and gets the corner flipped. And yes, that's all, Feliks now is not able to go to the finals, even the second DNF is not necessary.
By the way, there are 15 disciplines on Svetlye Gory Open 2017. We've decided not to add the Square-1 (to the great regret of Euro's 2016 medalist Sergey Chirin), FMC (we have no chance and in Belarus it is all done much better) and megaminx. There is another story with megaminx - the part of the word "minx" has confused director of the school, in which we are holding the competition. She knows English too good... well, the next time we should organize the competition in a nightclub.
This time of the year is really great to visit Russia with children. "Some kind of kids festival?" you will ask? No, but we are giving the special prizes for children of 10 years and under in 3x3x3. And even if you would not have time to visit the splendid art galleries, you still would be able to create and to look at the art in the discipline Mosaic Building.
Russia, in general, is a really big country, so that was easier for us to invite the Belorussian delegate - Ilya Tsiareshka (more common as "Ilya Curlieshka").
Registration fee, by the way, is only 300 rubles (~ 5 USD). It is not the reason to start packing the suitcases, issue visas, buy plane tickets - you should remember, that with all that costs, competition will still not be cheap. We don't know, but what we definitely know is that we well be really happy to see you on our competition.
Our official site is (in fact - just the group in "Russian Facebook", but this is what really is our official site) By the by, we are trying to translate everything to English :).
Our event on Facebook - (we will duplicate all the important messages there)
Our Telegram channel - (However, everything here is in Russian, but, if it will be necessary - we would create an English channel)
Link on the WCA page: (Registration will open at the 1 July).

And, in the end - here is the link to a pretty good Moscow travel guide. If you are going to visit the comp - we are highly recommend you to check it out.
