This competition mostly features less frequently-held events, to give people a chance to qualify for the inaugural Rubik's WCA Oceanic Championship being held in Melbourne this December. However all competitors are welcome, regardless of experience or skill, or whether or not you're planning to attend the Oceanic Championship.

There will be event-based time limits in place, to ensure we stay on schedule. No prior experience in WCA competitions is necessary, but competitors should be familiar with the WCA regulations.
