There is a $20 (CND) registration fee for the competition. Payment is made through the WCA Stripe payment system during your registration process. Your registration will not be fully confirmed until payment has been completed. Please note that even after payment, registrations need to be manually approved before appearing on the registration list, so you will not be confirmed immediately after paying.
There is a 110 competitor limit for this competition. Please register as soon as you can to ensure a spot. Registration closes at the end of the day on Thursday, August 30th. We will give 50% refunds to competitors who let us know before Registration closes, but no refunds after August 30th.
We also have two Facebook groups for our Cubing Area. Minnesota Cubing Community and Winnipeg Puzzle Club. You can join one or both of these groups to stay updated with upcoming competitions in the area.
ALL COMPETITORS MUST READ THIS TAB.
FOR FIRST-TIME COMPETITORS:
There are multiple things a first-timer must know before competing. All newcomers must be familiar with the WCA Regulations before competing. There is a video here for the basic overview of the rules.
In addition, please read this document (from another competition) before coming to the competition to learn about the procedures for judging. Thanks to Olivér Perge and Niki Placskó for providing this detailed judging information document.
Before the competition, you will be provided a Group number for when you will be competing in each event along with a helping group number for when you will be helping out judging or running in the competition. This information will be announced on the website the day before the competition along with it being posted in the room. All competitors are expected to help at this competition. For each event you sign up for, you will be assigned to help out for just one group of that event. If you do not arrive to help during your scheduled event, and there are not enough staff members, we reserve the right to disqualify you from competing.
We will provide a judging tutorial at the beginning of the day, right before the start of the 3x3x3 speedsolve event. This will allow anyone with questions about how to judge to be properly prepared when they are expected to help. We hope that this system will fairly divide up the judging of the competition and make the competition run smoothly for all.
