About the Competition

canadianCUBING is pleased to announce the London Limited, Spring 2017 speedcubing competition. The competition will be held on Saturday, March 25, 2017, at Western University, which is located at 1151 Richmond St, London, ON N6A 5B7.

The competition will be held in the International and Graduate Affairs Building on campus.  Please see the map here for info on parking.


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.

Registration

Click here to access the registration form. Registration for the competition will close on Monday, March 20, 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 we do not hit the cap of 120 competitors before the close of the registration period, we will accept registrations on 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.

Since this is a Limited competition, you must pay your fee online before your registration is completed. Only those that have completed their registration are able to compete in the competition. When you start your registration process using the online form, you will receive an email with further instructions on how to complete your registration. Make sure you supply the correct email address for this purpose.

Important Notes:

  • All sales are final. Should you pay online and find you cannot attend later, we will not issue a refund. This policy is to prevent "squatting", where someone reserves a limited spot without the full intention of attending.
  • If you decide to drop an event, you will not be reimbursed the fee for the event.
  • You cannot add events the morning of the competition. Your registration fee is final once you pay.
  • We will not be accepting walk-on registrations the morning of the competition unless our cap of 120 competitors has not been met. You must register online in order to participate.

Cost for spectators at the competition is free of charge

Food

There are various food options in the area. We will stop for 45 minutes for lunch.

Merchandise

Cubing Out Loud, the official sponsor of the competition, will be on site selling puzzles, shirts, lube, timers, and more. They accept both cash and credit cards.

Cubing Out Loud is offering a pick-up option for your merch needs. Simply select the shipping method at checkout called "Pick Up at London Spring 2017 Competition on March 25" on their website to indicate you will be picking up your order at the competition, and they'll waive the shipping fee. Using this approach will ensure you get the items you want. No waiting in lines, either. There will be a separate area to pick up your order when you arrive in the morning. This is the best option for merch!

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.
