For those of you new to cubing - WELCOME! This competition is fine for cubers of any age and experience. We just ask you to be aware of these basics before coming to compete and please be familiar with the WCA Regulations.
Note: There have been some minor updates to the regulations recently. In particular, they require the competitor to finish signing (not just for the judge to finish signing) before the competitor may reset the timer. This (and more) will be reviewed in the competitor tutorial at the start of the day.
Of course, those regulations contain a lot of legalese, so we have a video made specifically for new cubers, just to show the basics of competing. This video will explain most of what any cuber competing for the first time will need to know.
Video: WCA Competitor Tutorial
Q: What do competitions look like?
A: Rubik's Cube competitions are where people come together, hangout with others, make friends and compete.
Q: Who is allowed to compete?
A: Everyone from all ages are allowed to compete! Do not be discouraged if you are not experienced with cubing or competing, we encourage newcomers to come along, we would be more than happy to help out.
Q: Do I have to stay the for whole competition?
A: No, you are more than free to join/leave throughout the day - just make sure you are on time to compete/volunteer.
Q: Whose cubes do I use?
A: When competing, it is ideal to use your own cube. Make sure you have one ready to go when it is time to compete. Equipment like timers will be there to compete with. (We will not supply you with cubes to compete.)
Q: How do I check the results of the competition?
A: There will be a website: WCA Live to check concurrent results throughout the day. Official results will then be posted on this page in the following days of the competition.
Q: How do I find out about more events like these?
A: We have a Facebook Vancouver Cubing group (BC) and we also have PNW Cubing (USA + Canada). We will have meetups occassionally and annouce other events in there!
Do not be daunted by all these rules and expectations. Competitions are for everyone to have fun! If at any time during the day you have any questions, feel free to ask us!
If you have any following questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact: Kenny Zhong | email@example.com
Particularly if you are newer to competing or to judging or need that refresher after being out of competitions for so long, please read the WCA Competition Tutorial before coming to the competition to learn for the first time or simply be reminded as a more experienced competitor about the procedures for both competing and judging.
All experienced competitors will be scheduled by the organizers to serve as judges, runners, and scramblers in first rounds. Schedules will be posted at the venue and found on the back of the prepared name tags on the day of competition. To stay on schedule, we kindly ask that everyone tries to out by judging, scrambling or running, especially in later rounds where there are no sceduled volunteers. Even if you are not scheduled to, taking an empty judging spot is always appreciated! Keeping the venue as tidy as possible would be of great help as well, so please clean up before you leave if possible.
Serving in these essential roles makes for a smooth and excellently run competition for all. Thank You!
