Covid-19 Disclaimer

We will be complying with State and Local regulations and orders. The dates listed on this page are our goal. If we find we will miss some of our planned dates, we will keep working to complete the competition. We will keep Entrants and Judges informed to any changes in the schedule.

Due to the additional cost of sanitation supplies, additional judging sessions (lunches) and purchasing scarce case boxes, we are keeping the scoresheet handing fee to $10 this year.

Note to Judges: We will be working on more defined judging sessions to maintain physical distancing. We will be working to make sure our judging environments are safe. If potential judges have any concerns, please let us know of your concerns. We still need a good judge turnout to make the Limbo Challenge 2021 Edition a success.

Missing "Competition Entry Form" Fees of $5 per entry
