Schedule for Saturday (April 23, 2022)
Due to ongoing circumstances, the organizing team is enforcing restrictions during the competition which will impact the running of the competition. Here are the most important changes.
- Masks are now optional at this competition
- Food is now allowed inside the venue.
- Competitors should not attend the competition if experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, or if they were exposed to someone with COVID-19. If this occurs to you, the organizers will offer the competitor a full refund.
- When not competing, competitors and spectators should attempt to socially distance whenever possibly by keeping 3 feet away from others. We also encourage you not to share puzzles with other competitors.
- The competition may use a fixed seating system, rather than a standard waiting area. This is still being discussed among the organization team and all competitors will be notified ahead of time of what system we use. A fixed seating system 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, you will submit your puzzle at the drop-off table and go to your assigned station and remain there for all of your solves of that event.
- Regardless of the sysem used, after every attempt, rather than the judge putting the puzzle in the cover, the competitor is asked to put the puzzle into the cover at the end of the attempt. The judge will only put in the scorecard.
- Officials and staff will be following special procedures to continue to lower chance of transmission of COVID-19, such as utilizing sanitizer frequently and distancing.
Additional rules may be added as deemed necessary by the organizers, the WCA Board, or local/national governments.
By registering for this competition you agree that you understand and will follow all the information listed above.
We will be hosting a fundraiser at the competition! 100% of the proceeds will go to the International Committee of the Red Cross, a humanitarian organization that is currently working to provide clean water and stable living conditions to civilians affected by the ongoing crisis in Ukraine. There will be two ways to contribute (cash only):
- We will be selling a wide assortment of twisty puzzles at discounted prices, which you'll be able to buy at the competition.
- You will also be free to donate any desired amount without buying a cube!
Click here to donate (via PayPal)!
If you prefer to donate directly to the ICRC, click here.
Below is more info on the fundraiser, including a list of the cubes we're planning to sell.
When you arrive, you will receive a card/nametag with personalized information detailing your events and what group you will be competing in for each event. In addition, you will also receive staffing assignments. All competitors are expected to help at this competition. For each event you sign up for, you will be assigned to help out for just one group of that event. If you do not arrive to help during your scheduled event, and there are not enough staff members, we reserve the right to disqualify you from competing.
We will provide a judging tutorial at the beginning of the day, right before the start of the 3x3x3 speedsolve event. This will allow anyone with questions about how to judge to be properly prepared when they are expected to help. We hope that this system will fairly divide up the judging of the competition and make the competition run smoothly for all.
