Refund Policy

Emergency/Bad Weather Policy


We understand that, especially for those teams coming from Northern Utah, the roads can be
dangerous if winter storms impact the I-15 corridor--particularly over mountain passes. We do not want
teams taking unnecessary risks to get to our event.

If you make the decision not to travel due to weather, please notify us at the earliest opportunity. Refunds for weather-related reasons will be issued (less the $5 RECF fee) as long as notification is given prior to the event.

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 Checklists can be found here:  V5 Inspection Checklist -or- Cortex Inspection Checklist.

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

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.
