This is an official WCA event, and as such all official regulations will be followed. Please take some time to read them over before the day of the competition, especially if you have never competed before.

Click here to access the registration form. Registration for the competition will close on Tuesday, May 24, 2016. So be sure to register online to take advantage of the early bird pricing. See the Cost section for details.

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.

There will be no day-of registrations allowed at this competition due to the large volume of registrations. If you weren't able to register in time, come out to help instead! We need judges, scramblers, runners and more.

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.
