This is a quiet events competition. We will NOT be holding usual events like 3x3. If you are a new competitor or are in a regular competition, this probably isn't for you, and you may want to check out other local competitions. Spectators may attend for free, but you are likely to get bored very quickly as the events held are quite slow. We have a competitor cap of 30 people. More information is available on the "Registration & Payments" tab.

We have a cap of 30 competitors. In order to register, you must register on this website, and then pay here (this is a secured payment form through the university). You are not guaranteed a spot until you register and pay. Once your payment is reviewed, your registration status will be moved from "on the waitlist" to "registered." If you are still on the waitlist a few days after paying, please contact the delegate.
When registering, please be sure to indicate any needs that require special accomodations you may have in the comments section. If we know this in advance, we are better able to serve you.
WPI Students and Faculty: You are welcome to compete free of charge. Please register but do not pay. In the registration comments, please indicate that you are a WPI student so that you are moved from the waitlist to to "confirmed payment." If you're still on the waitlist a few days after registering, please contact the delegate.
We are sponsored by Cube Depot. They will be giving prizes to the winners, but will not be vending at the competition.
