This is the 4th Annual Very Merry Holiday VEX Tournament! There are two concurrent divisions at this event this year - a High School Division and a Middle School Division. This is the HIGH SCHOOL DIVISION - and you can find the Middle School Division on robotevents.com.
This event qualifies 6 teams to the Michigan West Regional Qualifier: 1= Excellence, 3 = Champions, 1= Design. and 1= Robot Skills.
This event was overbooked last year, and 102 teams played in that event. It was our largest VEX event to date, and we learned more about running a big event. This year, we will not take Tournament Manager software updates! And we'll be running four main event fields and three challenge fields.
Bring your robot out to play at the biggest VEX event in the Midwest!
