Competition Preparation

This event is sure to be a fact-paced and exciting event. All teams should come prepared for competition. Here are a few steps that every team should take to ensure that they are prepared.

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 on the Documents tab.

2. Check the official VEX forums at www.robotevents.com for rule updates and changes.

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