Completed/signed consent FORMS (note there are 2 of them) for all participants (students, volunteers, mentors and participating adults) must be turned in during check-in. Team leaders will need to collect the completed forms for all participants attending the event and turn them in to the registration desk when checking in. Both forms are available on the Documents tab. The first is the Participant Consent Form and the second is the CECFC Tournament Consent Form.
Each participating team must provide at least one volunteer for all or a portion of the day.
Volunteers should send email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your preferred event volunteer position(s) with your team number if you are volunteering for a particular team.
We will assign positions based on the order of arrival of your email so volunteer early to get your number one choice.
Volunteers should plan to wear a RED shirt so that you can be easily identified.
A pre-order form will be sent to each registered team for lunch. In addition, CECFC will have various drinks and snacks available for preorder and purchase.
This event is sure to be a fast paced and exciting event. All teams should come prepared for competition.
Here are a few steps that every team should take to ensure they are ready.
Review rules and run through the inspection checklist (see Documents tab).
Check the official VEX forums for rule updates and changes
Carefully read all of the information contained in the tournament posting on RobotEvents.com
Review the descriptions and criteria for the awards being given during the tournament
Prepare your interviews with the judges. At checkin time, each team will be given an interview time slot.
Interviews will start immediately after arrival so have your robots ready to unpack and be presented to the judges.
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 inside the high school building.
Understand how the game will be played. VEX participants are more than welcome to watch the referee training videos before they attend a tournament.
Ensure that you have the latest version of firmware.
Read through the robot troubleshooting guide and follow the directions about setting up your robot during the competition. Following the directions will avoid issues with the robots and the controllers.
Cell phones must have WIFI disabled during the event to avoid interference with the competing teams.
