Choose wisely if this is the event you are selecting. Once you register you will NOT be able to move to a different city. You will NOT be refunded your fee and teams will be moved to the wait list if they have not completed the payment by February 17, 2023. It is your responsibility to make sure that the payments have been processed in time. We will use the visible record of payment on robotevents.com to make the determination.

Event updates will be sent via email to the Team Contacts for your team on RobotEvents.com. Please keep your Team Contacts up-to-date to ensure that you receive them.

All judging will be done Remotely. Digital Engineering Notebooks and Remote Judging Sign-Up Forms will be due by February 17, 2023 or on your Payment Due Date, whichever is later. Details will be in the Remote Judging tab on the event webpage and in event update emails. 

Parking is availble in the school's parking lot on Lurine Ave between Mayall St and Lemarsh St. The event will be held in the Gymnasium.

We plan to have four Teamwork competition fields, two Robot Skills competition fields, and eight practice fields.

Teams can set up their own fields outside the Gym, but they will need to keep someone at their pit table who can contact them on request and ensure that they do not miss any matches or interviews.
