Information

This competition is being organized by Cubing Club at UCLA. All UCLA students may register free of charge; the fee is $10 for everyone else. There will be a competitor limit of 30, and no walk-in registrations. Spectators may attend for free, but must be quiet as the events being held require a lot of concentration on the part of the competitors.

If you are a UCLA student looking to attend a local competition but can't do the blindfolded events, note that we hope to hold another competition later in the year with more standard events such as 3x3x3. Don't be afraid to show up and spectate for a bit!

Please note that no food is allowed in the classroom.

This competition is being organized by Cubing Club at UCLA. All UCLA students may register free of charge. Simply register via the link on the left and include in the comments that you are a UCLA student, but do not pay. Your registration will be manually approved shortly. You will need to show your Bruin card at the competition.

All other competitors must pay the $10 registration fee, also via the link on the left. Your registration will be manually confirmed after you pay, so it may not show up immediately. Please contact the organizers if your registration still hasn't shown up after several days.

There will be a competitor limit of 30. You must register here before registration closes; there will be no walk-in registrations. Spectators may attend for free, but must be quiet as the events being held require a lot of concentration on the part of the competitors.

Note that the schedule (not the events or number of rounds of events) was changed around on Sunday April 9th. The main difference is that the first Multi BLD attempt is the first event on Saturday.
Update (April 27): Since we do not have enough competitors, there will unfortunately only be two rounds of 3x3x3 BLD.

Events:

Event Format Rounds Time Limit
3x3x3 BLD Best of 3 2 30:00 cumulative
4x4x4 BLD Best of 3 1 30:00 per attempt
5x5x5 BLD Best of 3 1 50:00 per attempt
Multi BLD Best of 3 1 WCA regulations
3x3x3 FMC Mean of 3 2 WCA regulations

In events with more than one round, the maximum number of competitors allowed by WCA regulations will advance to later rounds.
