We are pleased to announce once again this year the NCR 2014 competition.

It will be held on May 17 at the Optimist Performance Hall in the L'Escale Highschool in Rockland, Ontario (Canada).

Events:
  • 2x2x2
  • 3x3x3
  • 3x3x3 OH
  • 3x3x3 BLD
  • 4x4x4
  • Megaminx
  • Pyraminx
  • Skewb

We unfortunately won't be able to hold big BLD/multi or 5x5 or Feet this year due to event limitations.

Registration for the competition will close on May 14, 2013
If you register online, it will be 15$ for an event + 2$ per event with a max of 25$. If you don't pre-register online, it will be 20$ + 2$ per event with no max fee.

I'll probably be cooking stuff up for a bake sale at the competition like last year, depending if we can get somebody to take care of the selling part.

I'd like to mention that we've got some awesome prizes this year. We have medals, plus 50$/30$/15$ for 1st/2nd/3rd place in every event in the form of gift cars (probably Walmart). Thanks to our awesome sponsors Myers Auto group, the Knights of Columbus and Rubiks.com

Sweet; I will be there most likely.

The registration link goes to NCR2013 instead of NCR2014.
Thanks, fixed.

Unfortunately, I think I will have to skip a year. My babies are too young for me to be away so long or to come along. One of these days I will see about bringing my family!
:(

The prizes will be 50$ for first place, 30$ for second and 15$ for third place, all in every event.
You'd probably get yourself lots of cash (at least for a cubing competition).

Of course, you don't have to come if you don't want to, don't let money decide ;)

MAJOR EDIT: It turns out the money prizes will have to be given out in the form of gift cards (probably Walmart) because of bank related complications.

I would like to know the cutoff times/positions for 3x3 and 3x3OH explained since i didn't understand anything from the schedule(too complicated for me). could i pass in 2nd round if I average around 21sec?

The "cutoff" is just the time you have to beat in order to complete an average. You have two attempts to get a solve under the cutoff time. If you succeed in doing so, you're allowed to complete your 5 solves. If not, your round finishes after the two solves you've done.

As for if you can get to the next round if you average around 21 seconds, we can't really know for sure, as it depends on the performance of the other cubers. However, judging by last year's results, it's very likely you'd make it to the second round.
