Full refund if cancelled by 11/11/17, minus the $5.00 RobotEvents fee which is non-refundable.
After 11/11, we will refund only if there is a replacement team on the wait list who actually participates in the event.
The event will be cancelled if news stations advise staying home. We will post on both http://BerthoudRobotics.org/tournament and on http://www.action-works.org assuming the weather isn't so bad as to lose power.
Participating teams are required to have 1 volunteer sign up per team who is not a coach for half of the day (this
can be organized as two volunteers each taking a 2-hour slot).
$10 of the event registration will be refunded the day of the event for teams whose volunteer sign up
at least 3 weeks before the event (Nov 11th) and volunteers the day of the event for a whole day slot
(or two half-day slots or three 2-hour slots).
We are in need of both full and partial day volunteers. Volunteer slots for most positions are 2-hours in length.
A half-day slot would be two 2-hour slots. A full day position would be either a full day position (Judge) or
two half-day or three 2-hour slots.
A list of the volunteer positions available can be found on http://BerthoudRobotics.org/tournament

This event is sure to be a fast paced and exciting event. All teams should come prepared for competition.
Here are a few steps that every team should take to ensure they are ready.
Review rules and run through the inspection checklist (see Documents tab).
Check the official VEX forums for rule updates and changes
Carefully read all of the information contained in the tournament posting on RobotEvents.com
Review the descriptions and criteria for the awards being given during the tournament
Prepare your interviews with the judges. At checkin time, each team will be given an interview time slot.
Interviews will start immediately after arrival so have your robots ready to unpack and be presented to the judges.
Remember that safety comes first, please don't bring tools that pose a safety risk to your team, or others nearby as the venue is a very tight fit. Also, remember no grinding or other actions that create sparks inside the high school building.
Understand how the game will be played. VEX participants are more than welcome to watch the referee training videos before they attend a tournament.
Ensure that you have the latest version of firmware.
Read through the robot troubleshooting guide and follow the directions about setting up your robot during the competition. Following the directions will avoid issues with the robots and the controllers.
Cell phones must have WIFI disabled during the event to avoid interference with the competing teams.
