General Info

****This event does not qualify teams for State or World Championships*****

*****NO CUBES WILL BE USED IN THE MATCHES, all other rules remain the same******

The GST BOCES Scrimmage is intended for new teams to get a feel for what it takes to compete in a VRC Event, as well as experienced teams who migh want to have team members try unfamiliar roles. We will also stream the 2017-18 game reveal around 4:45

Most competition teams will be building robots from the VEX Classroom and Competition Super Kit. Experienced teams are encouraged to limit their build to what is found in this kit to try to keep the playing level for our new teams. If you would like to bring more teams than are registered with RobotEvents.com (i.e. you are splitting your team into smaller teams for this event) please contact the event organizer, Nate Smith, at nsmith@elmiracityschools.com

More information and an agenda will be available as the event day gets closer.
