Official Q&A: VRC 2019-2020: Tower Takeover Usage Guidelines

Skills deadlines

1 year ago

on RobotEvents it indicates that season global skills will be closed March 12, 2020:

2020-03-12: Season Standings Finalized

Yet, in the VRC Qualifying Criteria it indicates that last Championship events will be no later than March 15, 2020:

All Championship events within the US must be held no later than March 15, 2020. All Championship events outside of the US must be held no later than March 8, 2020.

Does this mean that skills results at a Championship event held March 13, 14, or 15 will not be considered as part of the season results for multi-qualification for spots to Worlds?
