General Info

Texas Regions 

For the 2018-2019 Vex robotics season the state of Texas was broken up into 4 sub-regions, Teams can compete at any qualifying event in the state, but if they receive a state qualifying spot, they must register to the State Regional Championship for their home region. Please see the map below to know which sub-region you fall under. Due to Texas being the only state that handles sub-regions this way, robot events is not built to allow the invitation process to work this way. You will be able to register for all the state championships, but it is up to the team to make sure that they register to the correct event. The Event Partner as well as the Regional Support Staff will be policing from time to time to make sure everyone registers for the correct event.

Competition Preparation

1. Review the rules and run through the inspection checklist about a week before the competition so that there is ample time for adjustments. The inspection checklist can be found here.

2. Check the official VEX forums for rule updates and changes.

3. Carefully read all of the information contained in the tournament posting on RobotEvents.com

4. Pack for the event the day before the day of departure. Here are a few items that you don't want to forget.
Goggles/Safety Glasses
Spare parts & tools
Batteries and chargers
Programming cable
Power strip
Laptop computer
Engineering notebook (if you have one, helpful for Judges, Design and 
Excellence Awards )
Banners and other decorations for your team pit
Giveaways if you have them

5. Be sure to read 101 Things You Should Know Before Your First VEX Tournament. 

6. Review the descriptions and criteria for the awards that are being given during the tournament. 

7. Prep for your interviews with the judges. Check the awards tab to see what awards will be given during the tournament.

8. 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.

9. Understand how the game will be played. VEX participants are more than welcome to watch the referee training videos before they attend a tournament.

10. Read through the Robot troubleshooting guide.
