This is the fourth Copper Country Cubing competition, and we're looking forward to welcoming you to the Michigan Upper Peninsula! It's been a long time since anyone has been able to compete, so this event features two long events on Saturday evening and the more common NxN events on Sunday. We plan to host another competition this Fall with more of the non-NxN puzzles, so look out for it!

As this competition takes place on the Michigan Technology University campus, it is subject to Michigan state laws, University campus policies, and WCA policies. We will monitor all of these sources for any changes to safety protocols and requirements. Please note that if community or regional health problems surface again or severely worsen, the competition may be forced to cancel.

There is a 40 person Competitor Limit for this competition. Please sign up early to ensure a spot, and please read the "Waiting List" tab for additional information on registration for the competition.

If the competition is running ahead of schedule and has enough competitors we would love to add an additional round to 3BLD, 3OH, and/or 6x6. Additionally, please note that the rounds are scheduled with more time than usual to account for stationary groups and sanitation time.
