As always, other events may be added on the day of competition.


We will be giving away some cubes for the winners of certain events, and we will also have drawings for cubes. You will be entered into the drawing by paying online. The first 1/3 of people to pay online will have their names put into a hat, and then 2 names will be drawn. Then the next 1/3 of people who paid online will have their names added to the hat, and 2 more names drawn. Then the remaining names of people who paid online will be put into the hat and 2 more names drawn. The earlier you pay, the better chances you'll have to win.


Registration is done online. Register here. When you register, you can choose to pay your registration fees online or you can pay the day of the competition. If you pay online, you will be entered into drawings for cubes. Registration will be closed on April 19th. After that, you may be limited to the number of events you can register for.


The cost will be $5 for the first event, and $2 for each additional event. $1 from each competitor will go to the WCA for server costs. The fees go towards the cost of running the competition, prizes, etc. Any funds beyond that go towards future competitions.
