Canada's official speedcubing organization

 Information


canadianCUBING is pleased to announce the first ever WCA competition to be held in Québec. The Montréal Open 2013 speedcubing competition will be held on March 23, 2013, at the Montreal Science Centre, which is located at 2 Rue de la Commune Ouest, Montreal, QC H2Y 2E2.

The competition will be held in the Espace Bernard Lamarre room in the Montreal Science Centre.

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 March 19, 2013. So be sure to register online to take advantage of the early bird pricing. See the Cost section for details.

The room where the competition will be held is outside of the exhibits. Therefore, you do not need to pay admission fees to the Science Centre in order to attend the competition. The cost to competitors that register online before the close date will be our standard pricing model. You will pay $10 to compete in one event. Each additional event will cost $2 to a max of $20.

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 $15 for the first event, $2 per additional event with no maximum fee. So be sure to register online. You can edit your events using the link found in you the email sent to you after registering.

Parking at the Science Centre is paid parking.

Cost for spectators at the competition is free of charge. So please come out and watch some of the fastest speedcubers in the country compete.

We will release the schedule after registration closes so we know how many people are in each event.

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.
