General Info

Welcome

It is going to be another exciting VEX competition season and we look forward to seeing all of the great teams and amazing robots at the Whitehall VRC Challenge in Whitehall, WI. 

This event is a qualifier for the Wisconsin VRC State Championship for Middle School and High School teams. 

 

State Qualifying Spot Assignments for Wisconsin VRC Events:

       Blended &       Only
Teams      VRC/HS    MS/VRC    
    24+          7        7
    32+         10        7
    56+         11        7  

 

If 10 or more teams are registered at each level of a blended event (Middle School and High School) the Excellence Award must be offered at each level. The total number of state qualifying spots will increase by one.

State Qualifying Spots are initially assigned based on the capacity of the event. After registration closes, and before the event, spots may be adjusted to reflect the number of teams registered for the event according to the table above. Qualifying Spots are assigned by the REC Foundation. The assignments are calculated based on the number of spots available for State Championship, the number and size of qualfying events in the State, and the historical double-qualification rates for the State. Questions on State Qualifying spot assignments may be directed to your REC Foundation Regional Support Manager Bill Ryno by email at: bill_ryno@roboticseducation.org. 

Elimination Brackets for Wisconsin VRC Events:

Up to 32 teams at an event will compete in the Elimination Rounds; all teams at an event are elibible for Alliance Selection, not just the top 32-ranked teams. If there are an odd number of teams, unfortunately the last team will not be able to compete in the Elimination Rounds. Refer to the Documents tab for a PDF of the 16-alliance elimination bracket. If an event has fewer than 16 alliances, the highest-seed alliances receive a bye. The Tournament Manager software automatically calculates the elimination brackets for the number of alliances competing. 

Following the Qualifying Criteria, Finals Alliances are 2 teams. Finals matches are determined by the winner of one match. Ties will be replayed until a winner is determined. Event Partners may run elimination brackets in any legal configuration they wish, but are encouraged to follow the standard for the State. Questions on Elimination Brackets may be directed to your REC Foundation Regional Support Manager Bill Ryno by email at: bill_ryno@roboticseducation.org.
