This will be held in 155 Dwinelle on the UC Berkeley Campus.
The main portion of the day will be done Hungarian style. This means that everyone will be put into competitor groups (TBA a few days before the competition), and will be expected to judge and/or scramble when they are not competing. For example, Group 1 may be asked to staff for Group 2.
For Saturday, the organizers are Abhimanyu Singhal and Karen Tu.
Saturday (11/18) is also the date of the Stanford vs. Cal game, so traffic is likely to be heavy and parking will likely be very difficult to find. Consider using public transportation to and from Berkeley and plan accordingly.
After all of the scheduled events have finished, staff members may complete their Day 2 Round 1 solves. Those who are normally not a staff member may request to join the staff for this competition. Anyone who elects to participate must agree to the following contract:
"By participating in the Berkeley Fall 2017 Staff Competition, I agree to fulfill judging and/or scrambling duties for the entirety of Berkeley Fall 2017's second day, on November 19th, 2017, as prescribed by the organization team. If I fail to fulfill my judging and/or scrambling duties, I understand that I forfeit my results under penalty of WCA regulations 1e2 and 1f2."
Q: Do I have to show up if I'm not doing any of these events?
A: No. If you aren't competing in FMC, Multi Blind, Clock, 6x6 or 7x7, then you only have to come on Sunday.
Q: Can I do staff comp if I'm not competing on Saturday?
A: Yes, but please make sure that the organizers will accept you as a staff member first.
This will be held in Pauley Ballroom on the UC Berkeley Campus.
The main portion of the day will be done Hungarian style, with competitors staying at their station for all solves of each event. Competitors will be called alphabetically by FIRST name. Competitors will still be expected to help judge when they are not competing, as this competition will have a huge number of solving stations that it needs to keep staffed.
Please be at the venue and ready to compete at least 15 minutes before your first event is scheduled to begin, as we may get ahead of the schedule.
For Sunday, the organizers are Ryan Jew and Tiffany Chien. If you have any questions during the Sunday competition, ask the info desk.
Know the regs, show up on time, don’t need to check in, and be respectful of competitors by staying 1.5 meters away from competition stations and not using flash photography
Q: Will there be a cube store?
A: Yes, the Berkeley Cube Club will be selling cubes.
Q: When do I show up?
A: Please be at the venue and ready to compete at least 15 minutes before your first event is scheduled to begin. We may get ahead of the schedule and start rounds early.
Q: Is there a general admission price if I am not competing?
A: There is no cost to spectate; the competition is open to the public. However, note that the room will be crowded, and again, we ask that competitors keep the number of guests they bring to a minimum.
Q: When should I leave the competition?
A: You are allowed to enter and leave the competition as you wish. If you are finished competing for the day, you do not need to stay at the competition.
Q: What do I do if I want to drop or add an event?
A: If you wish to drop an event from your registration, please email us, or let us know at the data entry table during the competition. You will not be refunded any money if you drop events. Unfortunately, due to our tight schedule, we are unable to add events to competitors’ registrations.
Q: I cannot attend this competition. What should I do?
A: If you cannot attend this competition after all, please send us an email saying so. Please ensure that you include your name and WCA ID in the body of the email.
If you will be under the age of 18 on November 18th, university policy requires you to fill out this liability waiver form.
Please fill it out, then scan and email the completed form to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will not be allowed to compete without filling out this form, and it will help everyone if you did it before the day of the competition. Thanks!
If you reach the time limit during your solve, the judge will stop you and your result will be DNF (see Regulation A1a4).
The format describes how to determine the ranking of competitors based on their results. The list of allowed formats per event is described in Regulation 9b. See Regulation 9f for a description of each format.
