Due to circumstances outside of my control, I am forced to reschedule the NC VRC VEXU Flex Your Skills and the NC VRC Last Chance Qualifier. It has been moved to Saturday February 15th, 2020. With weather related cancelations of school and rescheduling of various school activities we no longer have access to our facility this Saturday. I sincerely apologize for the late notice and any inconvenience that this may cause. We are still looking forward to seeing everyone then, as this should prove to be a great tournament.
