General Info

Welcome to the first ever RAD tournament in West Virginia!  This event is hosted by STARBASE at the WV National Guard, and sponsored by NASA IV&V Faciltiy, Fairmont State Univeristy, Leidos, Level 1 Fastners, and the Robert C. Byrd Institute (we are seeking additional sponsors). We are inviting teams to regiser your RAD team through RECF and to attend this tournament for free.  We have 12 drones to loan to the teams if needed.  We will spend the morning setting up the field and practicing, and the afternoon running the tournament.  There will not be any judging, and we are awarding the top teams in Racing and Package Delivery. Two teams will move on to the World Championship in April 26-28, 2020 in Louisville, KY.
