The Secret Cup is a nationwide tournament made by hash makers, for hash makers. The contest consists of regional competitions that happen in an undisclosed location and is not open to the general public.

The 2014 SoCal Secret Cup VIP party will be held March 21. The awards show (open to the public) will be held March 22 in the San Fernando Valley.
