The state of Washington, and the city of Spokane specifically, have lifted mask mandates and requirements. However:

  • Competitors should not attend the competition if experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, or if they were exposed to someone with COVID-19. If this occurs to you, the organizers will offer the competitor a full refund.
  • If you have symptoms related to COVID-19 such as cough, fever, shortness of breath, etc. you should not attend this competition.
  • If you have had a positive COVID-19 test or prolonged exposure to someone with the virus within 14 days prior to the competition, you should not attend.
  • Attendees should attempt to socially distance from others whenever possible.
  • The organizing team strongly recommends to recieve a COVID-19 vaccination before competing. This is not a requirement, but is encouraged. For information on, and finding vaccines near you, please use this website!

For general competing and staffing, these are the changes that will impact the running of the competition.

  • When not competing, competitors and spectators should attempt to socially distance whenever possible.
  • Hand sanitizer and disinfection wipes will be widely avaliable for use at the competitor's pleasure. Organizers will encourage throughout the day to utilize these items.

BY REGISTERING, YOU AGREE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND AND WILL FOLLOW ALL THE INFORMATION LISTED ABOVE.

ALL COMPETITORS MUST READ THIS TAB BEFORE REGISTERING.

FOR FIRST-TIME COMPETITORS:

There are multiple things a first-timer must know before competing. All newcomers must be familiar with the WCA Regulations before competing. There is a video HERE for the basic overview of the rules.

In addition, please read this document before coming to the competition to learn about the procedures for judging and competing:
https://www.worldcubeassociation.org/files/WCA_Competition_Tutorial.pdf

ALL COMPETITORS:

When you arrive, you will receive a card/nametag with personalized information detailing your events and what group you will be competing in for each event. In addition, you will also receive staffing assignments. All competitors are expected to help at this competition. For each event you sign up for, you will be assigned to help out for just one group of that event. If you do not arrive to help during your scheduled event, and there are not enough staff members, we reserve the right to disqualify you from competing.

We will provide a judging tutorial right before the start of the 6x6 event. This will allow anyone with questions about how to judge to be properly prepared when they are expected to help. We hope that this system will fairly divide up the judging of the competition and make the competition run smoothly for all.

This is a condensed summary of the new regulations enacted in the past year.

1) The competitor must have no physical contact with the puzzle cover while starting the attempt on Blindfolded events.
2) Require the competitor to finish signing (not just for the judge to finish signing) before the competitor may reset the timer.
3) This competition will be using gen 5 timers.
4) Puzzles are allowed to have transparent parts as long as they do not provide additional information.
5) Competitors are strongly recommended to turn off notifications and calls.

You can find a full summary of the new regulations here and here
