Obviously there is a lot of information in the Regulations, so a video was made (credit to Chris Olsen and Kit Clement) to show new competitors the basics of competing. This video will explain most of what any cuber competing for the first time will need to know.

If you have any questions after watching this video, feel free to email one of the organizers (Matthew or Evan Rich) to ask. Also, if you have any questions the day of the competition please find one of our staff members, who will be wearing staff t-shirts, and ask them your questions.

If you would like to sign up for this competition, go over to the registration tab, click register, and fill out the information it asks for. This will help you get set up the WCA's system and one step closer to your first official solve!
