General Info

Welcome to the 2nd. Annual Dublin Robotics Club VRC Tournament.  We are excited to bring together some of California's finest teams and the battle for a chance to go to the state championships.  If this event is full please place yourself on the waitlist.

Teams that have not checked in 45 minutes prior to the beginning of the qualifying matches will be dropped from the roster so that the match list may be run. Teams that are running late must contact the event partner prior to this cut off if they do not wish to be dropped. 

Teams must be paid three weeks prior to the event. Teams not paid at this time may be dropped at the event partner's discretion to allow teams in from the waitlist.

Match Lists will be generated as scheduled and cannot be re-run.
