General Info

Thanks you for registering for our event. The event partners of this event have a long history of hosting VEX events.  We stepped away from them last year due to the uncertanties of being able to do it in the high quality way that we normally had hosted events.  We very much look forward to returning to hosting true in person VEX VRC Events.

Our intention of hosting the event is to give STUDENTS an opportunity to practice their craft while with other like minded students.  While doing so we insist on teams conducting themselves in a responsible, respectable and trustworthy way.  So much so that we reserve the right to disqualify and remove teams that do not conduct themselves in such a manner. 

Please note that a Participation Legal Release form for all participants must be uploaded to robotevents.com prior to arrival. Get it here: Form with instructions how-to-upload.

Volunteer

Hosting these events is very involved. In addition they can be long and tedious to spectate, often I find that I do better when I'm able to help make the event happen. Feel free to contact us if you would like to volunteer.

Emergency/Bad Weather Policy

West Forsyth has every intention of hosting an event.  If wether poses a threat or there is another issue leading to a problem making the enent possible,  event partners will release an email to mentors listed for the teams as soon as a decision is made to cancel the event.  Please understand that setup for these events is rather involved and must be done the evening before.  So sometimes we have had to cancel an event due to Fridays weather.  It will be the mentors responsibility to make sure that all team members are notified.  If the event is called off due to emergency or bad weather there will also be no refunds. However, we will work to provide another date for the event.  If this happens it be a problem for your teams, please feel free to contact us, but understand that a refund is very unlikely.
