The first rounds of all events will be run in pre-determined fixed seated groups. It is important that you know which groups of each event you are in.

You can find an individual schedule here. Each competitor will be provided with a printed copy of their invididual group assignments at registration.

Throughout the competition we will also need judges, runners and scramblers. All competitiors will need to do some judging at the bare minimum, usually in other groups of your events, the more events you do the more your will need to help out. If you don't know how to help please come and ask, there is almost always something for you to do.

If you have any questions about the groups please contact us here.

Spectators are permitted and may enter FREE of charge.

Please be aware that this competition contains only blindfolded events and clock. If you are going to spectate, make sure you enter the venue as quietly as possible as to not distract competitors.
