Organisation

The Dutch Open Rubik's Cube 2012 is organised by Speedcubing.com (Ron van Bruchem, Ton Dennenbroek, Hanneke Rijks). The venue is provided by Dutch Cubists Club (NKC).
Our host is Joop van der Vaart.

The competition on Sunday will be held during Dutch Cube Day 2012, a big international gathering of puzzle fans, which includes a puzzle market and some lectures.
The competition on Saturday will be held in the same room, but without any other festivities.

During the championship the official WCA regulations will be applied.
Results of the championship will be added to the official WCA World Rankings.
Before the competition starts all competitors can practice on the official timing equipment: the Stackmat timer.
All puzzle brands may be used during the competition, as long as the puzzles comply to the WCA regulations.

All competitors must be available for scrambling and judging. The scrambling and judging will be done in groups per event.

News updates on Dutch Open 2012 will follow in separate e-mails to registered competitors.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact organiser Ron van Bruchem.
