General Info

Welcome to the Forsyth County Middle School January Competition – VIQC Slapshot. This tournament is being held at Otwell Middle School in Cumming Georgia.

In order to facilitate as many teams as possible, we ask that all spectators wait until after lunch (12:30ish) to enter the building. This will allow you to watch finals in person.  By helping us with this, we will be able to accommodate 48 teams instead of only 36. We will be live streaming the entire event so parents can watch their members compete. Thank you for helping us provide this opportunity to as many robotics students in our community as possible.

We are requesting that any team that would like to be considered for Judged Awards such as the Design or Excellence Awards, submit their Engineering Notebook during inspection the morning of the event. For our events this season, we are asking that teams turn in a hard copy of their engineering notebook. If your team is using a digital engineering notebook, please print off a copy and bring it with you to the event.

All participants are expected to complete the participant release form . (also available in Spanish)  Once per season covers all events. 

If you have any questions please contact Tony Collins at [email protected].
