Because of the Covid measures a number of additional rules apply for the competition:
1. Competitors and guests do not come to the competition if they had Covid and/or Covid symptoms in the week before the competition

The following rules are recommended to everyone:
7. People in the venue keep a safe distance
8. Competitors do not borrow puzzles from each other
9. Competitors may disinfect the competing surface before their attempts

The following rules DO NOT apply anymore:
2. Competitors will use fixed seating: competitors will do all their solves of a round in a row, without leaving the timer station
3. Competitors and judges will bring and use their own pen
4. Judges avoid touching the puzzles and timers (competitors reset the timers before a solve)
5. Competitors avoid touching the score sheets
6. Stopwatches are cleaned after each competitor
10. People in the venue wear a face mask
11. People in the venue keep 1.5m distance

The current Covid rules allow us to hold the competition as planned, and we are confident that the competition can be held.
However, the situation can change quickly. We therefore want everyone to be aware that the competition may be affected and/or cancelled with short notice, should the situation require it.
In that case, information will be sent out via e-mail and there will be refund of registration fees, but NO refund of travel and other costs.

Time limit

If you reach the time limit during your solve, the judge will stop you and your result will be DNF (see Regulation A1a4).

Cutoff

The result to beat to proceed to the second phase of a cutoff round (see Regulation 9g).

Format

The format describes how to determine the ranking of competitors based on their results. The list of allowed formats per event is described in Regulation 9b. See Regulation 9f for a description of each format.
