A: YES! You are responsible for your own hardware in order to compete.

A: Competitions are a bunch of tables where nerds like us get to sit and discuss our favorite thing, Cubes! Of course in addition there is competing, which will occupy one side of the pavilion, where you will see lots of timers flickering with contestants new personal bests.

Q: When do I need to show up?

A: Look at the schedule on the competition website. You must be present and ready to compete during all events that you are registered for. The schedule is subject to change. We recommend coming about 15-30 minutes before the start of your first event.

Q: How do I find results?

A: All results are posted on the WCA page a couple of days after the competition finishes. However, for the day of competing, go to live.worldcubeassociation.org to find information about current events. This is also where you will find information about 2nd and 3rd rounds of events.

-Before the competition, watch this great video made by WCA Senior Delegate Kit Clement with the basics of how it all works.
-There is also this written tutorial on the WCA website that is very helpful.
-We encourage first time competitors to test out the timing equipment before your first attempt! Feel free to ask a staff member how competing works.
-The competitors will be split up into groups for competing. You will be assigned a group, which you can find on the Groups Tab.
-On the day of the competition when your group number is called you bring your puzzle up and put it in the box that has a scorecard with your name on it and wait in the competitor waiting area until your name is called.
-It's a good idea to arrive before the scheduled time for your event because if you are not there for the last call you might not be allowed to compete.

-We will require all attendees to wear a mask.
-We will provide disinfecting wipes and hand sanitizer to attendees.
-We ask that any person exposed to someone with COVID-19 or who has shown COVID-19 symptoms in the 2 weeks before the competition to stay home.
-Only one competitor will be stationed at each table and will be stationed at that table for all of their solves. There will be no competitor waiting area.
