Colour Kit Prize Draws

Last season, we couldn't help notice that kids were really interested in the colourful robots at VEX IQ tournaments.  As an incentive for teams to attend our competition early in the season, we are offerring three "Colour kit" prize draws.  Each colour kit consists of an assortment of "coloured" VEX IQ structural pieces that can be used to add a little colour to your robot for the rest of the season, and beyond.  Teams that have paid the registration fee, and are in attendance at our tournament, will be automatically entered into the draw*.  At 12 noon, on Nov 9, 2019 we will randomly draw three team numbers.  Each team, in the order drawn, will then choose one of the colour kits.  If for whatever reason, a colour kit goes unclaimed by 3pm on Nov 9, 2019, then we will draw another team number for that prize at 3pm.  Please note that cash is not offerred as a substitute for the colour kit prize.  

Each kit includes:

1x Beam Base Pack

1x Beam Long Pack

2x Beam Base Pack

2x Beam Long Pack 

Specialty Beam Base Pack 

I was thinking of one yellow kit, one pink kit, and one orange kit.  Email me, if you have other suggestions for colour.  

* Your host, "PF Robotics Academy", will not have its own teams entered into the Colour Kit prize draws.  


The web address for the livecast will be available on Friday Nov 8, 2019 after 6 pm.
