October 28 - 30th, 2022
We are so excited to have been selected as the official hosts for the USCC Prelims! The Cup Tasters Preliminary will take place Friday, October 28 through Sunday, October 30 2022.
- Tasters compete in groups of 3 individuals at a time (called "heats")
- Tasters receive 5 sets of three cups where two cups are identical and one is different.
- Competitors are challenged to taste, smell, recall, and choose the unique cup in each triangulation.
- The person with the most correct answers in the shortest amount of time wins!
The top 3 competitors will receive a reserved spot at one of the two Qualifying events this winter!
