Heritage Cubing Day 2018

Cyprus : Heritage Cubing Day 2018

5th of May the Heritage Private School will hold the "Heritage Cubing Day 2018", the second official Cyprus championship under the auspices of the World Cube Association (WCA).

Speedcubing, solving the Rubik’s Cube and other puzzles as fast as you can is garnering popularity around the world. This kind of competition will be held for a second time in Cyprus. The first tournament was held in September last year in Nicosia, at the Russian Cultural Centre, and has gathered 44 participants from 7 countries, ranging in ages from 9 to 36 years old. Thirteen national records of different countries were beaten. Over 100 people came to spectate the event as audience. These were primarily participants’ friends and parents. The winner was an experienced speedcuber from the Republic of Belarus - Ilya Tereshko, having demonstrated the best result of 10.01 seconds. The second place was taken by a Cypriot - Panagiotis Raphael, and third place was taken by a Greek participant - Konstantinos Paraskevopoulos.

Participation can be taken by anyone who can solve any of the following puzzles: Rubik’s cube (or 3x3x3), 2x2x2 cube, 4x4x4 cube or a Pyraminx pyramid. There are no age restrictions, or any other kind of limitations. Separate competitions will be held for each puzzle. For the Rubik’s cube puzzle an additional condition is introduced - one handed solving. Winners of each discipline will receive certificates of participation and prizes. The selection of prizes is still being arranged with the sponsors. Those will most likely be puzzles.

Registration and handing out of badges will start in the cafeteria hall of the school from 10:00 and will finish at 11:00.
Participants’ ticket fee: 10 euros. Payment is made upon arrival.
Entrance for the audience is free of charge.
For official record of the results, all participants have to pre-register on the World Cube Association website and apply for participation in the tournament:
www.worldcubeassociation.org/competitions/HeritageCubingDay2018/edit/registrations

All personal and national achievements will be recorded and published on the association’s website right after the end of the tournament.
The tournament will finish at 18:00 after the awards ceremony.

The tournament is organized by the volunteers, participants of the “Cyprus Cubing” club and is sponsored by “Nekki”, a mobile games publisher.

Transfer with the school bus will be organised for the day of the competition - from Limassol to school, and back. The schedule and bus stop will be published later.
