Q: When do I need to show up?

A: 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.

Q: How do I find results?

A: All results are posted on the WCA page a couple of days after the competition finishes. However, for the day of competing, go to live.worldcubeassociation.org to find information about current events. This is also where you will find information about 2nd and 3rd rounds of events.

A: Make sure you pay you entrance fee in order to be automatically placed on the registered list, which will also guarantee you a spot in the competition.

-Before the competition, watch this great video made by WCA Senior Delegate Kit Clement with the basics of how it all works.
-There is also this written tutorial on the WCA website that is very helpful.
-The competitors will be split up into groups for competing. You will be assigned a group, which you can find on the Groups Tab.
-On the day of the competition when your group number is called you bring your puzzle up and put it in the box that has a scorecard with your name on it and wait at your station until your name is called.
-It's a good idea to arrive before the scheduled time for your event because if you are not there for the last call you might not be allowed to compete.

This competition will be run differently to be as cautious as possible as we return to competitions. Some of the major precautions we will be taking include

-We will be requiring proof of a negative COVID-19 test within 96 hours of the competition or proof of full vaccination to enter the competition.
-We will be requiring facial coverings for the duration of the competition.
-We will be providing hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes to any attendee and will regularly sanitize stations.
-We will be limiting each competitor to ONE guest permitted in the venue room.
-The competition will be "stationary" with each competitor staying at one station for the entirety of each round.
