  • Review the rules and run through the inspection checklist about a week before the competition so that there is ample time for adjustments. Robots must use VEX IQ parts. Please self inspect before arriving at the tournament using the IQ Robot Inspection Checklist

  • Check the official VEX forums for rule updates and changes.

  • Carefully read all of the information contained in the tournament posting on robotevents.com
