First you put your cube on the scrambling table on your score card. Then you wait. A runner comes up with your cube and calls your name. They tell you where to sit, they usually walk with you, and then you sit and solve. When you are done, you go back to the waiting area, etc. After your last solve you take your cube with you.
Oh, ok. I thought you had to find a solving station. Didn't pay attention to the scrambling station bit.

Do I have to bring any identification to my first comp?
If it is your first comp then I believe that you should have some form of identification (which the delegate should confirm) before your results are submitted, unless you already created a WCA account and entered your personal information there.

  • 2b) Competitors below the age of 18 must obtain consent from their parent(s)/guardian(s) to register and compete.
  • 2c) Competitors register by providing all information required by the organization team (including: name, country, date of birth, gender, contact information, selected events).
    • 2c1) A competitor is not eligible to compete without a completed registration, as determined by the organization team.
    • 2c2) Returning competitors must provide personal information consistent with their WCA profile. If a competitor wishes to change or update their personal information between competitions (e.g. a change of nationality, name, or gender), they must contact the WCA Results Team.

I haven't heard of anybody ever needing identification to compete before. When you register online, isn't that in itself supposed to be confirmation that your parents consent?

I do agree that most often then not you will not need it (especially since you registered online) but if it your first comp then it does not hurt to have on you/with you, in case it is needed. I have yet to see someone need it, but I also have heard that sometimes it might be needed, so again it is better to have it then not for your first comp.

Good point. Most likely it isn't needed, but it doesn't hurt to bring it just in case.

There's a regulation saying that if the cube is unsolvable, and can be solved with a single corner twist, the competitor may twist it back without penalty. Does that mean you have to do it during the solve, or afterwards? So I could be doing a Sune, then have an impossible case, continue doing PLL, stop timer, then twist the cubie?
