Preparation for the Tournament

We are hoping to have an exciting year and as this will probably be the first tournament of the year timing may vary from the agenda. To help make this event run smoother please review the following.

  1. Review rules and run through the inspection checklist (see Documents tab).  Review closely the rules for using VexV5 equipment or Vex Cortex equipment.  Note also the rules on robot sizing.  The sizing rules can cause your team a lot of work early in the day if not closely followed.

  2. Check the official VEX Q&A for rule updates and changes it can be found at https://www.robotevents.com/VRC/2019-2020/QA, This is the official clarification on many common questions that may arise.

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

  4. Review the descriptions and criteria for the awards being given during the tournament

  5. 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.

  6. Understand how the game will be played. VEX participants are more than welcome to watch the referee training videos before they attend a tournament. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLvvcc7S26YEgxGIAxbiYTqI8wzUPE0SjO

  7. Ensure that you have the latest version of V5 or Cortex firmware.

  8. 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.

  9. Cell phones must have WIFI disabled during the event to avoid interference with the competing teams.
