General Info

Thank you for your interest in the VIQC Elementary Full Volume Tournament hosted by Hudsonville Robotics!  This will be our 3nd year hosting and we look forward to a fun and collaborative event.

Facility - The competition will be hosted in the main gym of Hudsonville High School conveniently located one mile north of I-196 just west of Grand Rapids, Mi. Ample parking is available on campus and there are also plenty of resturants and retail locations in the area.  Note: There are large construction projects happening at the high school near the gym. We will have signs posted to assist you in navigating.

Competition - Teams will participate in qualification matches, skills events, in-person, printed notebook, judging in the pits, and elimination matches if qualified.  We will be following the rules in the latest release of the VEX IQ Game Manual.

Judging - We will be collecting Physical engineering notebooks at the start of this event for in-person judging. We will not be able to print notebooks for teams.

Pits - Tables, seating, and electrical charging stations, and public WIFI will be provided. 

Food - Teams are welcome to bring their own food and we will have an array of concession snacks and drinks.  Pizza orders - Teams can pre-order a large pizza for $15 cash - our volunteers will handle the order and have it delivered on time for lunch.

Registration - All participating teams must be registered with VEX Robotics and the Robot Events website and have an official team number before registering for this event. Tournament fees must be paid before teams are allowed to compete. Registration and payments should be made through the Robot Events website.
