Thank you participating in Thousand Oaks Cubing Open 2019.

In order to make this event run as smooth as possible, please familiarize yourself with the WCA Regulations.

If this is your first time competing, it may be intimidating when you first walk in. To mitigate this, please watch this video that explains the basics of a cubing competition.

Here are some frequently asked questions:

Q: Do I use my own cube to compete?
A: Yes, and they must comply with the WCA Regulations.

Q: Can I add or remove an event from my registration?
A: Not a problem. Send us a message through the contact form and we will gladly change the events for which you are signed up.

Q: What are cutoffs?
A: Cutoffs are times that competitors must reach within their first two solves. There are no cutoffs for the 2x2x2 and 3x3x3 events because we want to see new competitors compete without additional stress. However, for events like 4x4x4 and Pyraminx, we would like to expedite this competition as much as possible while still being fair, which is why we have these cutoffs.

Q: Can I come spectate?
A: Yes! Any friends, family members, or anyone else can spectate the event for FREE! We encourage to bring guests to show them the world of cubing.

Q: Do I have to be present for events I'm not competing in?
A: No. You only have to be at the venue for the events in which you are competing. Click the schedule tab for more information. With that said, we recommend that you arrive early to give ample time to practice before competing.

Q: How do I find results?
A: Live results will be available on cubecomps.com during the competition. This is also where you will find information if you moved onto the 2nd and 3rd rounds. Once finalized, the results are posted on the WCA page several days after the competition finishes.

Q: What is there to do when I'm not competing?
A: There are numerous tables where people can practice and hang out with other cubers. Outside of the facility, there is a park with a basketball court, tennis court and running trail.

Q: Are there age divisions?
A: All competitors compete in the same group.

Q: Where do the proceeds of this event go?
A: All proceeds of this event will go to victims of the Borderline shooting and Woolsey Fire, two tragedies that occured within 24 hours of each other in the Thousand Oaks area. Those who are interested in donating more to the cause may do so at the donation booth.

We are proud to announce that Speedcubeshop is an official sponsor of the Thousand Oaks Cubing Open 2019.
Other sponsors will be later determined.

Live results will be available on Saturday, March 30, 2019.

T-Shirt design will be determined at a later date. There will be a $20 cost for each shirt. Only a short-sleeve T-Shirt will be available for sale. In order to try to predict how many shirts to purchase, please fill out this google form if you're interested in a competition T-Shirt.
