Welcome to our first VRC event of the year, "Battle in the Big Country - Spin Up", sponsored by ATEMS Robotics.
We will have two competition fields, one Skills field, and a practice field for our tournament. We will need two additional Spin Up field element sets. If your team is willing to bring their complete field element set to this competition, please email Larry.Haney@abileneisd.org or call 325-733-7439 before registering and we will give one of your teams free registration for this tournament. The first two teams contacting us will receive this offer.
All team members attending this event are required to submit the on line consent form through Robot Events
We are very excited to hold this event at our new CTE center. Doors will open at 7:00AM. Registration and inspection will be from 7:30AM - 8:30AM. Practice rounds will start at approximately 9:00AM and we are asking each team to complete one practice round to verify proper connection to the VEXnet controller.
