About the Competition

canadianCUBING is pleased to announce the Newmarket Open 2018 speedcubing competition. The competition will be held on Saturday, June 16, 2018, at Magna Centre, which is located at 800 Mulock Dr, Newmarket, ON L3Y 9C1.

The competition will be held on the Honda Ice Pad.

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 Sunday, June 10, 2018. So be sure to register online to take advantage of the early bird pricing. See the Cost section for details.

Costs

The cost to competitions that register online before the close date will be a flat rate of $20.00 regardless of the number of events in which you participate.

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 a flat rate of $40.00 for any number of events.

Online registrations must be paid online before the competition via the Cubing Out Loud website. An email will be sent to all registered competitors closer to the competition with all the information. If you wish to wait and pay at the competition, we will accept cash or credit card.

Food

There are a number of food options in the area. We will have a 45 minute break for lunch in the schedule.

Merchandise

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.

Cubing Out Loud is offering a pick-up option for your merch needs. Simply use the shipping option for Newmarket Open 2018 at checkout on their website to indicate you will be picking up your order at the competition, and they'll waive 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!

Pickup orders can be place between May 23 to June 15.

Volunteers

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.
