This competition will have no "normal" sighted events, only blindfolded events! If it is your first time competing in these events, please make sure you are familiar with the WCA regulations regarding blindfolded solving before the day of the competition.
If you don't want to compete but would still like to come and watch, that is totally fine, as long as you make sure to remain quiet out of respect for the competitors. Any noise or distractions can ruin an attempt for someone, so anybody causing disruptions during the competition will be asked to leave.
The competition venue will be at Room 2504, located at the second floor of the Nest. The actual room can be found in this map (circled in black):
UBC is accessible with buses (4, 14, 99, etc.) and the Nest is just a few minutes walk from the bus loop.
