Thank you so much for choosing to compete in the VRC MS 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. Note that there will be multiple events hosted at the Hudsonville campus that day so the parking lots will be full this year.
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 teams are welcome to bring their own food. We will have an array of concession snacks and drinks, and this year we will also have food trucks at the event with a variety of cusine.
Again we will be implementing alternating 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 block the roles are reversed. We plan to hold 6 qualification rounds for each age group.
All times subject to change.
We have various positions for volunteers ranging from high school age to adult for novice to expierienced volunteers. We will be posting a volunteer signup web page in September.
