Welcome to the Modesto Robotics & Technology Bay Area VEX IQ Squared Away Tournament. We are excited to bring together some of California's finest teams and the battle for a chance to go to the state championships. If this event is full please place yourself on the waitlist.
Teams that have not checked in 45 minutes prior to the beginning of the qualifying matches will be dropped from the roster so that the match list may be run. Teams that are running late must contact the event partner prior to this cut off if they do not wish to be dropped.
Teams must be paid three weeks prior to the event. Teams not paid at this time may be dropped at the event partner's discretion to allow teams in from the waitlist.
Match Lists will be generated as scheduled and cannot be re-run.
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 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. Please make sure to keep in mind at all times.
2. Check the official VEX Q & A on RobotEvents.com for rule updates and changes.
3. Carefully read all of the information contained in the tournament posting on RobotEvents.com
