The competition will be held at the Harvey Mudd College, primarily in the Galileo Lecture Hall. On Saturday morning, we will also be utilizing rooms 2460 and 2461 in the Shanahan Center for FMC and multi-blind, respectively.

Harvey Mudd College 301 Platt Blvd, Claremont, CA 91711

Parking:

Parking Map and Visitor Parking Pass: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Ug0FPwgxmkrradIu_W7psiDFAF4tUKk1/view?usp=sharing

Please print and display the visitor parking pass on the dashboard of your vehicle. This parking pass will allow you to park in any faculty & staff space on campus.

We strongly recommend parking in the parking lot off of Mills Avenue (parking lots north of Buildings 12/14/16 and Buildings 18/22 on the parking directory). There are also additional spaces in the parking areas near the northwest corner of campus (near Building 5 on the parking directory).

Signs will guide you from parking areas to Galileo Hall (structure 6 on the parking directory), where the majority of the event will take place. Note that Galileo Hall is underground. Stairs on the east side of the structure will lead you into the lecture hall.

On Saturday morning, FMC and multi-blind will take place in rooms 2460 and 2461 on the second floor of the Shanahan Center (Building 8 on the parking directory). These rooms are very close to the west staircase of the building next to the Cafe.

Dining:
Mudd's dining hall will be open during select hours for brunch and dinner. In addition, the Claremont Village is less than two miles away and has many places to eat.

Live Results are available on WCA Live.

Upon arrival, please pick up your personalized name card and lanyard from the table directly outside the lecture hall. This card contains group and staffing assignments.

If you lose your nametag, please see the PDF here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/19alvOqN70NxMxXjLGQdNvhs6y3w2K4RS/view?usp=sharing

First-time Competitors:

All newcomers should be familiar with the WCA Regulations before competing. Also, this video provides an awesome overview of many of the basic competition rules. We will be running a competitor tutorial in the morning prior to 3x3, and there will be a brief Q&A period to clarify any questions you might have.

Returning Competitors:

In order to keep the competition running smoothly, all returning competitors are required to help judge, run, or scramble during the event. Competitors are generally assigned to staff during one or two other groups, per event they are competing in. We will explain how to judge, run, and scramble during the competitor tutorial on Saturday morning.

Q & A:

Q: Do I use my own cube to compete?
A: YES! You are responsible for your own hardware in order to compete. This means you should bring your own cube, or arrange to borrow a cube from a friend.

Q: What do I do when I walk in?
A: There is no formal check-in. However, upon arrival, please pick up your personalized name card from the table directly outside the venue. If you registered online, just have fun and hang out with other cubers! We will be calling people up, so just wait for your name/group to be announced. We ask that all competitors arrive prior to the competitor tutorial.

Q: What is the normal age of competitors at these events?
A: All ages are welcome, but in general competitors are between 10 and 20 years old. Don't let this stop you though, everyone can and should cube!

Q: How do I find results?
A: All results are posted on the WCA page within a week after the competition finishes. However, for the day of competing, go to WCA Live (live.worldcubeassociation.org) to find information about current events. This is also where you will find information about 2nd and 3rd rounds of events. Remember, the results are entered by a human so please be patient if you do not see your results immediately.

Q: Why am I not on the registration list yet?
A: Make sure you pay you entrance fee in order to be placed on the registered list, which will also guarantee you a spot in the competition if we haven't reached the colpetitor limit. If payment may be any issue, or you are not sure if you can attend, use the contact button to talk to us, and see if we can work out another payment strategy, or have you pay on arrival at the compeition. No matter what you situation may be however, please register online. ** For most competitions, you may only compete if you have registered online and paid before the deadline.**

Q: Are there age divisions?
A: Nope! All competitors compete together.

Q: Can I have fun at this event?
A: YES! Cubing is amazing, and we sincerely hope you enjoy the competition!
