General Info

Welcome to the 1st Annual Black and Blue GHMS VEX IQ Tournament (ES/MS)!

The 1st Annual Black and Blue GHMS VEX IQ Tournament (ES/MS) will be a qualifying event for the SC VEX IQ State Championship.  If teams wish to be judged and in the running for Design and Excellence awards, teams should upload their Engineering Notebooks to their RobotEvents account by January 27, 2022.  This will allow the judges more time to review the notebooks and to prepare for interviews that will take place on the day of the event.

  • When teams arrive at Gold Hill Middle School they will enter through the side of the school by the bus loop and gym. SEE TRAVEL INFO FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT PARKING
  • Only registered team members and one coach will be allowed in the pit area in the cafeteria.  Tables will be set up and labeled with team numbers.  All other people associated with the teams including parents, siblings, and other spectators must remain in the stands or hallway.
