Event description
A whole day of solving cubes in the holidays!

About this Event

Christchurch Speedcubers is New Zealand's longest running speedcubing club! Speedcubing is the art of solving Rubik's cubes and other plastic puzzles as quickly as possible.

This October holidays we're back for another club championship! This is a whole day of solving cubes in the format of a World Cube Association (WCA) competition.

Please note this is an UNOFFICIAL competition, but a great way to get some comp practice in before they start again in late October in Wellington, as well as a great way to spend a day and meet some new and old friends!

This event is open to anyone of any ability, but is primarily designed as a school holiday program for under 18s.

Please bring your own lunch. Snacks and drinks are included in the ticket price.

The following info gives some specifics on prizes, events and the schedule for the day.

Events

The events at our championships are based on the mini Guildford challenge, which happens to be a popular, unofficial cubing challenge. We’re not actually doing the mini guildford challenge on the day to be clear, but it’s just a really good selection of all the main and side events, which seemed like a good place to start!

Please note - you don’t need to register for events! You can just do whichever ones you want, or as many as you can (More details in schedule). Cut offs for all events (i.e. max time for a single solve) are 10 minutes, because that’s how long a Stackmat timer goes for!

So here are the events we’ll be doing;

2x2x2 (2 rounds)

3x3x3 (2 rounds)

4x4x4 final

5x5x5 final

OH final

Clock final

Megaminx final

Pyraminx final

Skewb final

Square-1 final

Schedule

“But wait, how are you going to fit all of those events into one day?” Well here’s the thing, we actually probably won’t! BUT… We’re going to do what we call “open rounds”, in amongst some regular, scheduled rounds. This will let attendees do the events they want as efficiently as possible without a hectic schedule for the whole day. After all, this is just for fun! What does that actually look like though? Let’s take a closer look...

0900 set up, check in, chill out

1000 3x3 round 1

1100 2x2 round 1

1200 lunch

1230-1515 open rounds (2.45 hours)

1530 2x2 finals (top 8)

1600 3x3 Finals (top 8)

So you have 2.45 hours to do as many events as you want or as many as you can in that time.

I look forward to seeing you there!
