ALL COMPETITORS MUST READ THIS TAB BEFORE REGISTERING.
Before the competition, you will receive a card/nametag with personalized information detailing your events and what group you will be competing in for each event in an email. We will be relying on competitors to help by judging whenever they are not competing. Judging is very easy and is a great way to make time fly!
We will provide a judging and competitor tutorial at the beginning of the day, right before the start of 3x3. This will allow anyone with questions about how to judge or compete to be properly prepared when they are expected to help or compete!
We will need help judging for the second/final rounds of events as we can not assign staff for those in advance. Spectators are encouraged to learn how to judge; you do not need to know how to cube in order to be a judge. Having enough judges ensures that we stay on schedule and are able to leave on time.
For those of you new to cubing, WELCOME!
We wanted to let you know this event is perfectly fine for cubers of any age and experience. We just ask you know a couple things before coming to compete...
First, please be familiar with the WCA Regulations, found here:
This video will explain most of what any cuber competing for the first time will need to know, however, it is still required that they are familar with the full set of regulations above.
If you have any questions after this video, we will be having a new competitor/judge tutorial the morning of the competition. That would be the perfect time to ask those questions and clear up any confusion.
If you are stoked to compete and ready to sign up, head over to the registration tab, click register, and fill out the information it asks for. This will help you get set up the WCA's system and one step closer to your first official solve!
# Frequently Asked Questions:
**Q: Do I use my own cube to compete?
A: Yes! You are responsible for your own hardware in order to compete. Please refer to section 3 of the WCA Regulations for more information on what puzzles are okay to use in competition. If you have any questions, please reach out!
Q: What is the competition like?
A: Competitions are a ton of fun! Competitions are a great opportuity to meet new cubers, make new friends, and be able to compete and get official times recognized by the World Cube Association. Competitions can be as social of an event as you would like them to be. The communitiy is extremely welcoming and you can always sit at any table and strike up a conversation with another cuber. They are great places to try new cubes as well, just in case you are looking to get a new main cube! Once you walk into the venue, you will most likely see your nametag at a check-in table. If you are a first-timer, you will be asked to verify your information on your registration (name, DOB, country). Once you grab your nametag, go ahead and find a seat and start cubing! There will be a competitor/judge tutorial, which can be found on the schedule. After that, we will begin with the first event and will be calling events up by group. Your group numbers can be found on the back of your nametag. After you compete in an event, you will most likely also be expected to help judge another group (typically the following group). Competitions are very self-sufficient, so we rely heavily on the assitance from other cubers and parents like you! Your assisgned helping groups should also be listed on the back of your nametag. Once you are done competing in your event, you can go back to your table and continnue to socialize! To see if you made it to the next round of an event, you can check your results.
Q: How do I find results?
A: For the day of competing, WCA Live will have all of the results manually entered throughout the day. Once on WCA Live, scroll to the competition in question and you're good to go! After the competition, official results will be posted typically within a few days to a week after the competition happens.
Q: How do I get a WCA ID?
After official results are posted after the competitions (see question above), you will receive an email with information on your WCA ID.
Q: Why am I not on the registration list yet?
A: Make sure you pay you registration fee in order to be eligible to be placed on the competitor list. If the competitor limit has been reached by the time your registration is completed, you will be placed onto a waitlist, which is listed in the order of when competitors pay. If you are not advanced from the waitlist before the waittlist closes (date found on Register tab), you will be issued a full refund.
Q: What is the typical age of competitors at these events?
A: All ages are welcome, but in general competitors are between 10 and 20 years old. Don't let this stop you though! Everyone can and should cube!
Q: Are there age divisions?
A: Nope! All cometitors compete in the same groups.
Q: Is there anything else I should know before attending my first competition?
A: Yes! Attending your first competition can come with a lot of nerves, so try and focus on having fun and meeting new people. If you aren't as fast as Max Park or Feliks Zemdegs, just remember that all cubers faster than you have been at your speed at some point! I also point people to Mats Valk's WCA Profile since he started competing whe he averaged well over a minute and now averages 6-7 seconds. People often do slightly worse in competition than at home too, so don't beat yourself up if you don't do as well as you had hoped! Once you lock in your first set of results, you'll have new personal records to break and goals to achieve at every new competition! If you plan on bringing any of your own puzzles, we highly rercommend marking them somehow (sharpie mark under a center cap or something similar) or keeping them in a box/bag. It happens far too often that many cubers bring a bunch of puzzles, put them on a table unattended, and accidentally take someone elses' puzzle, thinking it was theirs. It's easy to lose track of a single puzzle, especially since so many of them look the same at first glance!
This event is taking place during a long weekend -- it can get busy! If you are planning to stay in Canmore be sure to book your stay early - it often sells out before long weekends!
It is approximately 70min by car from downtown Calgary. Please allow for an extra 30-45 minutes on the highway if you're travelling west to join us the day of the event.
On comp day plan an extra 15-20 minutes to get anywhere around town - traffic can get backed up especially with the train running through the center of the town and the new traffic calming controls in place. There is FREE PARKING at the venue.
There are vending machines on site, however for a proper lunch you will need to travel downtown (1.6km/1 mile). There are several top-class cafes, bakeries and restaurants to be discovered, though a bagged lunch or something picked up before the event begins might be a more* time friendly option*.
After the competition reservations for dinner are recommended if you are planning to dine in Canmore, Banff, or Kananaskis.

Proceeds from this competition will be put toward maintaining the Denise Yasinko Memorial Scholarship.
In 2020 the Alberta cubing community quietly lost one of their biggest supporters with the passing of Denise Yasinko. Denise was known for her limitless energy and sense of fun. She worked tirelessly to bring speedcubing to Calgary and in just four short years hosted the largest competition in Alberta to date, unveiled the world's largest cube at the Telus Spark, and managed to convince organizers to host Nationals in Calgary, this was the first time they were ever held outside of Toronto. Without the efforts of Denise this competition would not have been possible. With the support of her family, especially her son Ryan, we wanted to pay tribute to her legacy by establishing this scholarship fund.
Available to any grade 12 student in Alberta who has competed in at least one WCA competition (has a WCA ID). The individual must be pursuing post secondary studies and show proof of enrollment as well as completion of highschool before final disbursement. This scholarship is not based on academic performance, rather passion for their future educational goals.
Applications will be available through www.shecubes.ca under the scholarship tab. The application will be available year round. The final day submissions will be accepted for the current year is July 15 (if you are graduating from high school in 2023 your application must be submitted by July 15, 2023 etc.). The recipient will be notified via email when they've been selected. The recipient will remain tentative until proof of graduation and enrollment is confirmed. A current Alberta mailing address will be required with application.
The recipient will be issued a cheque for $1000 from She Cubes via mail.
If anyone currently registered for this competition does not wish to support the fund they are welcome to cancel their registration for a full refund up until October 1, 2022.
Inquiries are always welcome and can be sent to email@example.com
