Allgemeine information

This is a VexU Tournament and will be held at the University of Kansas in Lawrence, KS.

This event is open to all VexU teams from any region. The event will be held in KU's LEEP2 building Saturday afternoon and possibly evening. Each team will receive a minimum 6 qualification matches. We will have at least 2 competition fields and 1 skills field. Which awards qualify for Worlds won't come out until later but Excellence and hopefully Tournament Champions will qualify. If teams are willing to bring and set up a field, they will have one team's registration waived and receive Skills fast passes. Reach out to us ([email protected]) if this interests your organization. Your help with additional fields will lead to a better competition experience for everyone.

It you have any questions, please send them as an email directly to [email protected]. Multiple people are planning different aspects of this event and this shared email will ensure the right person will receive your question.

Additionally, before this event, KU will be hosting a V5RC event. We encourage teams to show up and volunteer at this event as they will have the oppourtunity to see some great robots in action.

Payment: Teams who have not paid by Nov 1st will be moved to the waitlist until payment is received. If your team has issues meeting this deadline, please reach out. Depending on the circumstances, teams may still be able to register and pay after the deadline.

Venue: This event will be hosted in KU's engineering complex (LEEP2). Pictures of the venue are in the image gallery (doesn't load on mobile)

Participation and Consent Form: All participants must complete the consent form online before attending the event.

Waiting List: If this event is full, please add your team to the waitlist. Additionally, if your team wishes to bring more than 4 teams to the event, add your additional teams to the waitlist and we will expand the max organizational limit if there are still empty spots.

Pits: there will be 1 pit room. We ask that parents stay out of these rooms as much as possible as there will be other seating. Each team will have a circular table approximately 7 ft in diameter. Each table will have 3 outlets. 

Match queuing: there will be a livestream running to the pit room. Pit rooms are only a 1 minute walk from the fields. Each team will be responsible for making sure that they show up to their matches on time. Plan to show up to the queuing table as soon as it opens to your team. We have a tight schedule to keep and will start matches without teams if they are not there. 

Food: teams are welcome to bring their own food to the event. There are vending machines in the venue and there is a small coffee shop that sells items like muffins and sandwiches in addition to drinks. This is run by KU dining services so we can’t guarantee they won’t run out later in the day.

Sich freiwillig melden

Events like this can't happen without volunteers. There are roles that require no prior experience and even opportunities for younger students. We can make arrangements for families to volunteer together. If you are interested in any position, please reach out to [email protected]

Food will be provided for all volunteers.

Additionally, if your team is willing to bring and setup a field Friday night, your team will have their registration fee waived and receive skills fast passes. Please reach out via email ( [email protected]) if you are willing to do this.

Richtlinie für not-/schlechtwettersituationen

The event will be cancelled only under extreme circumstances. If this occurs, teams will be notified through email. How we will move forward depends on why the event was cancelled, but we will most likely try to reschedule.

Refund and Payment Policies

If the Event Partner cancels the event: 

This will only happen in the event of an emergency or bad weather and we are unable to reschedule. We will provide as close to a full refund as possible in this extremely unlikely event (certain event funds such as the RECF handling fee must be spent before the event occurs and those will not be refunded).

If a Coach/Mentor completes registration for the event then chooses to withdraw or not attend:

Once a team has paid for the event, no refund will be given. Teams who do not pay by the payment deadline will be moved to the waitlist and potentially lose their spot. If special arrangements are made for a team to remain registered for the event after the payment deadline, teams will still be expected to pay in full regardless of whether or not that team attends as we will be unlikely to fill the spot on short notice.
