Again we will be implementing block schedules for age groups. When the high school is competing in qualification matches the middle school can do skills and judging. During the following schedule block the roles are reversed. We plan to hold 6 qualification rounds for each age group.
This is a tentative schedule and will most likely change once we establish a match frequency.

Thank you so much for choosing to compete in the VRC HS only Tower Takeover Tournament hosted by Hudsonville Robotics! This will be our 4th year hosting and we look forward to a fun and collaborative event.
The competition will be hosted in the spacious main gym of Hudsonville High School conveniently located one mile north of I-196 just west of Grand Rapids, Mi. Ample parking is available on campus and there are also plenty of resturants and retail locations in the area.
Teams will participate in qualification matches, skills events, judging in the pits, and elimination matches if qualified. We will be following the rules in the latest release of the VEX Robotics Competition – Game Manual.
Pit tables, seating, and electrical power will be provided for each team attending along with plenty of spectator seating. A cafeteria is located across the hall and we will have an array of concession snacks, drinks, and pizza. Teams are also welcome to bring their own food. Food and drink will not be allowed in the gym.
