General Info

**2/6/24 UPDATE - I have now posted a prelimenary schedule and updated the agenda.  There will be a lunch/skills break for ES from 11:00-12:00, MS will be from 11:30-12:30**

Jay County Jr-Sr High School welcomes you to a fun weekend of competition and excitement! 

The event will be located in the Jay County Jr-Sr High School Commons. There will be ample pit room and the ES and MS events will be located in the same area for the conveinence of coaches and parents of students in both divisions.

The ES and MS event will be held in the same, large, area.  This will allow for schools with teams in both divisions to monitor all of their teams in one area.

Skills:  Each event will have their own skills field.  All teams will have 3 attempts at programming and driver skills

Judging:  There will be NO judging at this event.

Concessions: There will be a concession stand on site.  100% of the proceeds will benefits Jay County Robotics and help to fund our competitive initiatives.

Seating:  At this time, there are no dedicated bleachers for spectators.  We suggest bringing lawn chairs.  This is the downside of having the event in this conveinent location.  We have found in the past that people actually enjoy this style of event.
