The Georgia Cubing championship competition is coming up in December, and I would like to go. My question is, do you have to be very good at a puzzle to go to a state comp? Or can cubers of any skill level attend state comps?

Back last year, people were saying how stickerless cubes woould be made legal in 2015. However, I have checked the WCA regulations and they said, "Puzzles must have coloured parts, which must be one of the following: coloured stickers, coloured tiles, coloured plastic, or painted/printed...

Hey guys. I want to be able to host my own competition in oregon, but I don't know how to make it official by the wca where records can be set.
Any suggestions on how I can do that? I already have started a Cubing club at my school, but I don't know where to go from there.
Most sports clearly distinguish rankings from records. For example. tennis, badminton ,etc.
As the sport grows older, the records become tougher to break and it does make sense to have a separate ranking system which represents who are the best in the sport currently rather than who has been...

Hey everyone! I've been reading the arguments for removing feet as an event, and an idea struck me:
Instead of feet, we should remove Rubik's Cube. I would not be making this argument if I did not hate Rubik's Cube as an event, but like the people who hate feet, I will not be making my...
The WCA should request for IWGA(International World Games Association) membership, if they haven't done so. Membership with the IWGA will provide better exposure for cubing as a sport since,
IWGA membership will also make it easier for cubers to attend events since the IWGA is recognized by...
I have created a Sporcle quiz on the WCA world record holders. The URL is here:
I have also embedded it on my website:
The rules are pretty self explanatory...
I think that singles should still be what win competitions, but I think that in 3BLD there should also be rankings for means of 3.

You can use this thread to promote/advertise/just talk about any of your local unofficial competitions.
Personally, I just came back from one which I helped organize/run.
It was pretty much only people from our school, and there were 25 competitors which is good I guess.
