Information

Don your blindfolds and put on a harmonica holder, because blind is back in Southern California! Get ready for SoCal's first blindfolded cubing competition since 2018. Blindsolvers of all experience levels are welcome!

Competitors should read the Competitor Information tab. Spectators may attend for free, but due to room capacity limitations, guests should be kept to a minimum. Since blindsolving requires a high level of concentration, all attendees are required to be silent during blindfolded events. Guests and competitors may socialize freely in Haines Hall Room A28, on the same floor as the competition venue. All attendees are required to read the COVID-19 Safety tab.

Join our Facebook group to hear about competitions in Southern California before registration opens and keep in touch with cubers in the area!
