General Info

This will be an early event with good competition from around South Carolina! Doors will open at 8:00am on Saturday.  This is a qualifying event for the South Carolina VEX IQ Robotics State Championship in the Team Alliance Category.  We will update this information if the event qualifies as a Skills state qualifier. 

Teams may park in the student parking lot or main parking lot in front of the school.  All teams should enter at the main entrance.  Only registered teams and mentors should be in the pit area (school cafeteria) during the event, while spectators should remain in the gym to watch the competition.  Only team members, official volunteers, and referees should be on the competition floor. There will be concession stands open throughout the day and there is a variety of food options within a 5 minute drive of the school.
