Thank you for your interest in Sycamore's Squared Away MS tournament! This is a state qualifying event for 3 state bids.
If the event registration fills-up, please feel free to add your team to the waiting list, based on the number of referee and judge volunteers, we may be able to add team capacity to the event. If you can offer a 2019-2020 certified VEX IQ referee volunteer, it will increase the likelihood of being invited to the event from the waiting list.
Concessions will be available all day for lunch and snacks. We will be doing group pizza order with more details to come as the event gets closer.
A completed form for all participants must be turned in during check-in or be uploaded to RobotEvents before the event starts.
