Information

[FR]

Suite aux annonces par le gouvernement du Québec sur le Passeport vaccinal, tous les compétiteurs et leurs accompagnateurs devront présenter leur passeport vaccinal et une pièce d'identité avec photo à l'entrée du site de compétition. L'accès à la compétition sera refusé à tous ceux qui ne peuvent présenter un passeport valide. Un questionnaire d'accueil devra également être rempli au préalable, voir l'onglet Preuve de vaccination pour plus de détails. Dans l'éventualité où les directives gouvernementales changent, les compétiteurs seront avisés par courriel. Également, il est à noter que les citoyens étrangers qui désirent voyager au Canada doivent être admissibles au statut de voyageurs entièrement vaccinés et suivre les instructions détaillées sur le site du gouvernement canadien.

Veuillez lire tous les onglets sur cette page web. C'est très important. En raison de la COVID-19, il y aura des nouveautés même pour les compétiteurs chevronnés.

Portez une attention particulière à l'onglet Santé & Sécurité ainsi qu'à notre [Plan d'atténuation des risques]https://docs.google.com/document/d/121IA2o1dPWAdlqZNCO0KyVLceeFsbFENTiVlMPThAkU/edit?usp=sharing) conforme aux directives de la WCA.

Note : 1 accompagnateur maximum par compétiteur. Si vous n'êtes pas un compétiteur ou accompagnateur, nous vous demandons de ne pas venir.

Note : Dans la cas où la situation en lien avec la pandémie COVID-19 devient drastiquement pire et que les directives changent, il se peut que la WCA cancelle la compétition. Les mises à jour importantes seront affichées sur ce site et envoyées directement par courriel aux compétiteurs.

[EN]

As per the Quebec government's recently announced Proof of Vaccination Requirement, all competitors and their (single) guest must present a valid proof of vaccination and a valid piece of ID with photo in order to enter the venue. Also, a welcome questionnaire will have to be filled, see the Vaccination proof tab for more details. We will send registered competitors further details in an email if the government updates its regulations. Moreover, note that individuals arriving from outside of Canada need to qualify as fully vaccinated travellers and follow the Canadian government policies detailed on the website.

Please review ALL of the tabs listed on this website. This is a priority. Even if you are a seasoned competitor, COVID-19 has created some new conditions and there are things to be particularly attentive to.

Take clear note especially of the Health and Safety Tab and our full WCA-compliant Risk Mitigation Plan.

Note: Only one (1) spectator per competitor can attend. If you're not a competitor or the single guest of a competitor, then we ask you NOT to come.

Note: In the unlikely event that the COVID-19 situation concerningly worsens, the WCA may step in and cancel the competition. Significant updates such as these will be posted here on the website and emailed to registered competitors.

Due to ongoing circumstances, the organizing team is planning for the following restrictions during the competition:

  • 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 this competition.
  • As per the Quebec government's recently announced Proof of Vaccination Requirement, COMPETITORS AND GUESTS (age 13+) SHOULD BE ABLE TO SHOW A VALID PROOF OF VACCINATION.
  • Attendees should maintain a minimum of 1m from others whenever possible.
  • Masks will be LEGALLY REQUIRED at all times.
  • Competitors are strongly encouraged to use their own pen for the duration of the competition. A name labeled pen will be supplied to each competitor.
  • When not competing, competitors and spectators should attempt to distance whenever possible by keeping 1 meter away from others. We also encourage you to not share puzzles with other competitors.
  • Hand sanitizer, microfiber towels and disinfectant spray will be widely available for all competitors to use. Organizers will encourage these items to be used.
  • The competition will aim to minimize movements and randomized seating; we 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.
  • Officials and staff will be following special procedures to continue to minimize the possibility of transmission of COVID-19, such as utilizing sanitizer frequently and distancing and assigned seating.

Welcome

For those of you new to cubing - WELCOME! This competition is fine for cubers of any age and experience. We just ask you to be aware of these basics before coming to compete... First, please be familiar with the WCA Regulations.

Of course, those regulations contain a lot of legalese, so we have a video made specifically for new cubers, just to show the basics of competing. This video will explain most of what any cuber competing for the first time will need to know.

FAQs

Q: Do I use my own cubes to compete?
A: YES! You are responsible for your own hardware in order to compete and to be similarly responsible for its whereabouts at the competition venue.

Q: What is the competition like?
A: Competitions like this one have a bunch of tables where cubers like us get to sit, discuss and practice our favorite thing: cubes! The actual competing with timers, mats and displays is on one side of the room. The competing is split up into groups, so as to better organize who competes when. Specific cube events and their aimed for start times will be posted and on your name tag, but you will also need to listen for when your event and your group is called.

Q: How do I find results?
A: Data recorders will compile and present all results at WCA Live. We will add a link here in the days leading up to the competition, and also include it in the pre-competition email.

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

Q: Can I have fun at this event?
A: ABSOLUTELY YES! Cubing is amazing, and we sincerely hope you enjoy the competition!

WCA competitions are operating under regulations enacted on May 1, 2021 to address safety concerns regarding COVID as well as new permanent regulations for competitions. All competitors are required to read the Health & 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 use their own pens. Name labeled pens will be provided for this particular competition.
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).

Particularly if you are newer to competing or to judging or need that refresher after being out of competitions for so long, please read the WCA Competition Tutorial before coming to the competition to learn for the first time or simply be reminded as a more experienced competitor about the procedures for both competing and judging.

All experienced competitors will be scheduled in by the organizers to serve as judges and scramblers. Schedules will be posted at the venue and found on the back of the prepared name tags on the day of competition.

Any new or newer competitors will be scheduled in to be judges only (no scrambling or running) and are asked to be at the venue no later than 8:45am to take in the live judging tutorial hosted by our delegate. Similarly schedules for new or newer competitors to judge will be posted at the venue and found on the back of the prepared name tags on the day of competition.

Please see our Risk Mitigation Plan for Welcome Back Lévis 2021 to learn of the health and safety procedures to be aware of not only for competing but for serving in the judging, scrambling or running roles.

Serving in these essential roles - including on the spot invitations to both competitors and attendees to assist the organizer as co-runners - makes for a smooth and excellently run competition for all. Thank you in advance for your help!!!!
