General Info

We are excited to announce the first annual RoboFest Fall Tournament. This is a single-day event with Skills being offered. We welcome middle school VRC competition teams with a maximum of 3 teams per organization. There will be no judged awards at this event, only Tournament Champion and Finalists along with Skills Champion. Awards qualifying for state have not yet been allocated; we are expected to receive our state bids after November 1st. 

In an effort to start on time, we need all teams checked in no later than 7:45 in the morning, and inspected no later than 8:20. Those teams not checked in and inspected by those times will be dropped from competition for the entire day of the event without refund of registration fees. Should you be stuck in traffic or have issues in transit, please call Lisa Elisondo at (661) 378-7803 or Dusty Wittman at (661) 381-1320.
