General Info

Woodland is very excited to host our second VEX IQ event! We hope you can attend and if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us!

Judging: Judges will be at the event to meet with teams. Any teams wishing to be eligible for judged awards must submit an engineering notebook.

Skills: Skills will be available on a first come, first serve basis. Limit: 3 driver, 3 auto. All skill runs must be completed by the end of qualifying rounds.

Tournament: We will be playing Pitching In as a traditional live in-person tournament. Expect 5-7 qualifying rounds.

Miscellaneous Notes:

  • Spectator Change: Unfortunately, we will not be able to have spectators at the event. Each team will be allowed a total of TWO adults for the duration of the event. This is less than ideal, but is the only way we'll be able to host the event. The event will be live-streamed online.
  • COVID Protocols: In addition to mandatory universal masking at the event, teams will be socially distanced as much as possible. If you have any concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out.
  • Volunteers: If you have any adults that would like to attend but would send the team over the two adult per team limit, please consider volunteering. Please email me, and we can find a suitable role. Any volunteers do not count against the two adult per team limit. 
  • Participation: If your team is uncomfortable with the current COVID situation or if, knock on wood, a team is unable to participate due to COVID diagnosis or exposure, please know you can pull out your team with a refund(minus the $5 robot event surcharge). Every family has different situations going on. Please let me know as soon as possible if you choose to pass on this event.
  • Concessions: We currently plan on having a pizza order form and other small snack type items and drinks available for purchase. More info forthcoming the week of 1/24.
