Who can compete?

Everyone is welcome to compete. All you need to do is register for the event.

Is there a competitor limit?
Yes, it is 35 competitors. You just need to make sure to register before the registration deadline.

Why the small competitior limit?
This competition is a "mini" competition featuring only 1 round of a lot of events. In order to fit all these events in a tight schedule, we need to limit the number of competitiors.

How do I register?
Click on the registration tab on the competition website and follow the instructions.

Where can I find my WCA ID?
If you have never competed before, you do not have a WCA ID. You will automatically be assigned one when the results for your first competition are posted. If you have competed before, you can find your WCA ID and profile by searching for yourself on the WCA website.

Do spectators have to pay to attend?
Nope! Spectators may attend free of charge. However we will have a limit of how many spectators/guests may be in the room at one time.

This is my first competition. What do I need to know?
There is a lot of good information available in the "Competitor Information - MUST READ" tab.

I can only attend for part of the competition. Can I do my solves early?
Unfortunately, no. In order to keep the competition running smoothly, we have to stay on schedule.

When do I need to show up?
Look at the schedule on the competition website. You must be present and ready to compete during all events that you are registered for. The schedule is subject to change. We recommend coming about 15-30 minutes before the start of your first event.

Where can I see the results for the competition?
During the competition, live results will be posted on WCA Live. These results are unofficial. A week or so after the competition, official results will be posted on the WCA website.

Can I join The Rubik's Cube Club at Ohio State?
Anyone is welcome to attend our club! If you currently attend The Ohio State University or some other Columbus College, email me at richards.1478@osu.edu. If you wish to attend meetings and are in high school or below, please email us at ohiostatecubeclub@gmail.com

In the event that we run extremely ahead of schedule (60+ minutes), a second round of pyraminx will be added. This round will be Top 8, and will take place after Megaminx.
