Competition Preparation

All teams should come prepared for competition. Here are a few steps that every team should take to ensure that they are prepared.

1. Review the rules and run through the inspection checklist about a week before the competition so that there is ample time for adjustments. The rules and inspection checklist can be found at: http://www.roboticseducation.org/vex-robotics-competitionvrc/current-game/

2. Check the official VEX forums for rule updates and changes.

3. Visit the tournament's page on RobotEvents and read it carefully. Specifically, look for information about the team's pit area, available concession areas, electrical sources and any venue specific rules.

4. Pack for the event the day before the day of departure. Here are a few items that you don't want to forget.
* Goggles/Safety Glasses
* Spare parts & tools
* Batteries and chargers
* Programming cable
* Power Strip
* Laptop computer
* Engineering notebook (if you have one)
* Banners and other decorations for your team pit
* Giveaways if you have them

5. Be sure to read 101 Things You Should Know Before Your First VEX Tournament. This can be found at http://www.vexforum.com/wiki/101_Things_You_Should_Know_Before_Your_First_VEX_Tournament

6. Review the descriptions and criteria for the awards that are being given during the tournament.


7. Remember that safety comes first, please don't bring tools that pose a safety risk to your team, or others nearby as the venue is a very tight fit. Also, remember no grinding or other actions that create sparks.
