What is a cutoff?
A cutoff is a time that you must solve the puzzle in at least once during your first two solves in order to do the last three solves of the average. If the format of the event only has 3 attempts, you must solve the puzzle in the first attempt under the cutoff in order to do the last two solves of the mean.
What is a time limit?
A time limit is a time that you must solve the puzzle in during each attempt. If you do not solve the cube within the time limit, you will be stopped by the judge and receive a DNF for that solve.
Schedule is tentative and is subject to change.
Additionally, if we end an event early the next event will start as soon as possible.
If you have never competed before, you are required to attend the staff tutorial at the beginning of the day.
If you miss your group, there is a high chance that you will not be able to be put into another group, so be on time.
