It is expected that teams utilize the RobotEvents system to handle event payments prior to attending the event.

Teams who sign up to compete at this event are making a commitment to being there and commit to the organizer to offset costs. Therefore, refunds will not be issued.

However, if you need to cancel, and your spot is filled by another team, we will be happy to issue a refund.

Due to the limited space for events, we will not issue a refund for a 'no show'.

In all cases, each registration contains a $5 RobotEvents processing fee that is not refundable.
