canadianCUBING is pleased to announce the Montreal Open, Winter 2017 speedcubing competition. The competition will be held on Saturday, February 4, 2017, at Les YMCA du Québec, Cartierville, which is located at 11885 Boulevard Laurentien, Montréal, QC H4J 2R5.
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 Monday, January 30, 2017. So be sure to register online to take advantage of the early bird pricing. To complete your registration, you must pay online. See the Cost section for details.
The cost to competitors that register online before the close date will be our standard pricing model. You will pay $15.00 to compete in one event. Each additional event will cost $2.00. After submitting the registration form, you will be emailed instructions on how to complete your registration in order to take advantage of the early bird pricing. It involves paying the fee via the Cubing Out Loud website. Ensure you enter your correct email address.
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 $30.00 for the first event, $3.00 per additional event. So be sure to register online.
Cost for spectators at the competition is free of charge.
The following is a list of the events currently offered at the competition.
The top three placements will be recognized for their achievements, including certificates.
Cubing Out Loud will provide $30 discount codes to all first place winners for use at their online store.
We will release the schedule after registration closes so we know how many people are in each event. The event will run from 9 AM to 5 PM with 2x2x2 followed by 3x3x3 starting the day.
There are plenty of food options in the area.
Cubing Out Loud, the official sponsor of the competition, will be on site selling puzzles, shirts, lube, timers, and more. They accept both cash and credit cards. However, since it is an out of province event for them, the variety of items will be limited. You are encouraged to use the Pickup option as outlines below to ensure you get the items you want.
Cubing Out Loud is offering a pick-up option for your merch needs. Simply use the shipping option called MOW2017-Pickup at checkout on their website to indicate you will be picking up your order at the competition to avoid the shipping fee. Using this approach will ensure you get the items you want. No waiting in lines, either. There will be a separate area to pick up your order when you arrive in the morning. This is the best option for merch!
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.
