Registration requirements
Create a WCA account here if you don't have one.
If this is not your first competition, associate your WCA ID to your WCA account here.
Register for this competition here.
There is a competitor limit of 120 competitors.
The base registration fee for this competition is $25 (Canadian Dollar).
The registration fee has to be paid through Stripe here once registered.
If your registration is cancelled before you will be refunded a 50% of your registration fee.
No on the spot registrations will be accepted.
Spectators can attend for free.

Note about the waitlist: If the competitor limit has been reached and you register for this competition, you will be added onto the waitlist. Once on the waitlist, you must complete your registration (by paying the registration fee). As competitors delete their registrations, spots will open up for people on the waitlist and competitors will be taken on a first-come first-serve basis from those that have paid. If you are accepted from off of the waitlist, you will be notified by receiving an email saying that your registration has been accepted. We will only be taking people from the waitlist until the end of December 25th. If you do not make it off the waitlist, you will be fully refunded your registration fee and will, unfortunately, not be able to compete in the competition. On-site registrations will not be accepted.

You are still welcome to come and socialize with cubers at the competition, which we strongly recommend you do if you're not too far from the venue. It's not every day that you're in a room with 120+ cubers! If you have not attended a competition yet and don't make it off the waitlist, this is a great opportunity to go see what a competition is like without having to worry about your results.
