Registration Fee
There is a $10 registration fee for the event, payable through the WCA Stripe payment system. Your registration will not be confirmed (moved from the waiting list) until payment has been completed.

Please note that even after payment, registrations need to be manually approved before appearing on the registration list.

There is a 100 competitor limit to the competition. Registration closes at the end of the day on February 16th. We will grant refunds to those who let us know before February 16th, but no refunds are granted after that date.

Update: Students and Faculty of OSU can compete for free. Simply register and don't pay and you'll be approved. (Leave a comment with your registration if you think the organizers don't know you). We have refunded the OSU students and faculty members that we know of but if you are a current student or faculty member and have already paid for your registration, message an organizer and we will refund your fee.

This competition is recognized as an official World Cube Association competition. Therefore, all competitors should be familiar with the WCA regulations. If you are new to competing, you may want to look at CubingUSA's Competitor Tutorial.

There are a variety of food option in the Memorial Union. These options include Panda Express, Togo's (sandwhiches), and Joe's Burgers. There are a couple other cafe style restaurants as well as a small convenient store style shop. Of course, you are also welcome to go elsewhere on or off campus for lunch.


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 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.

When you arrive, you will receive a card/nametag with personalized information detailing your events and what group you will be competing in for each event. In addition, you will also receive staffing assignments. 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 2x2 Round 1 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.


This competition will be held at the OSU Memorial Union in the Horizon Room (49) which is located in the East section on the mezzanine level.
