Registration

Click here to access the registration form. Registration for the competition will close on Tuesday, February 28, 2017. So be sure to register online to take advantage of the early bird pricing. See the Cost section for details.

Costs

The cost to competitors that register online before the close date will be our standard pricing model. You will pay $15.00 to compete in one event. Each additional event will cost $2.00 to a maximum of $25.00.

If you do not register online before the close of the registration period, you can still register the morning of the competition. The price at that time, however, is $30.00 for the first event, $3.00 per additional event with no maximum fee. So be sure to register online. You can edit your events using the link found in the email sent to you after registering.

Volunteers

We are always looking for dedicated people to donate their time and efforts to these competitions. We need scramblers and judges for every round of every event. It is a great opportunity for parents, siblings, friends, or anyone that wants to come and be involved but does not want to compete yet. We will provide training the morning of the competition for those wishing to help out. It is not difficult, so don't be afraid!

For anyone that volunteers and helps out for an entire competition, we will act as a reference if you wish to put this on your resume or college application. We will also sign any high school volunteer hour sheets provided you work the entire competition. But you must arrange this with us before the competition. Contact us here if you plan to help out.
