It’s as Easy as 1, 2, 3
1. Become a Groupie (for the month or the year).
2. Register at https://www.speedpuzzling.com/events.html. Don’t open the puzzle package until you are told to do so—on the date of the contest! Zoom links will be sent out to everyone a day or two before the contest.
3. Join the Zoom meeting on October 9th. The judges will check each contestant’s camera setup and unopened puzzle package. There will be brief instructions given, and then we will start the timer, and everyone will puzzle simultaneously.
After the deadline has passed, and all entries have been verified, we will post the rankings, names, and completion times of all participants. Bragging rights!!
A $25 Amazon gift card will go to the winner.
