New Competitors:

  • We are excited you are considering the Wiscube 2019 as your first competition! This is a great one to start with and will have competitors of all ages!
  • 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. Before the competition, you can watch this great video made by WCA Senior Delegate for USA & Canada Kit Clement with the basics of how it all works. There is also this written tutorial on the WCA website that is very helpful.
  • The competitors will be split up into groups for competing. You will be assigned a group and you'll be informed of your group number for each event before the competition. 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.
  • Read the "All Competitors" information below.

All Competitors:

  • Be familiar with the WCA Regulations specifically Article 2 and Article A
  • We are going to need all the help we can get from volunteer judges throughout the day to make the competition run well. You may judge in any group you are not competing in and it is greatly appreciated! If you do not know how to judge all of the staff members are more than happy to teach you. Parents are welcome to judge too, it's a great way to get a new experience at your child's event!
  • Flash photography is not allowed because it is very distracting to people while they are solving.
  • You must NOT talk about the scrambles of an event while it is still in progress.
  • Make sure all screens of any cameras or phones you have on the table are facing away from you otherwise this will result in a DNF
  • Please treat the venue with respect, pick up any trash keep track of your puzzles.

The competition is being held at the Howard Johnson Plaza Hotel located at 3841 E Washington Ave, Madison, WI 53704. The competition is on the 2nd floor in the Redwood Ballroom.
They have a free shuttle to and from the airport, and have a special group rate on rooms for competitors and their families for the nights of the competition! To get the discounted rate please call the hotel directly at 608-244-2481 and tell them you are with the "speedcubing competition".
