**Attention Event Partners: As per our EP meeting in May 2019, please note that a $10 per team fee will be charged regardless of the number of teams registered. This fee is nonrefundable as $5 goes to the REC Foundation and the other $5 goes toward tournament trailer maintenance.
This VRC event is a qualifying event to the Oregon VRC State Championships (Platinum Division) and is open to all registered VRC teams. The following awards will qualify to the Oregon State Championship:
If 10+ teams from each grade level (MS & HS) register for the event, then a 2nd Excellence Award will be added. These spots will be reviewed one week prior to the event. If less than 30 teams are registered, then the spot allocation may be reduced.
The event must meet the VRC Qualifying Criteria for the results to upload to RobotEvents, which can be viewed in the Uploaded Documents event tab. The state qualification spots are determined by the capacity of the State Championship, the number of events in the state, and the size of the event. If there is an out-of-state/region/province/nation team, or a team that double qualifies from the event (not from previous events or other methods), that spot will go to the next highest unqualified team on the Robot Skills ranking at that event. There is no look-back to previous events to see if a team has previously qualified. These spots will be filled by the Regional Support Manager after the event has been uploaded and the results have been verified. If you have questions about the State Championship qualification process, please contact your Regional Support Manager, Lisa Schultz at Lisa_Schultz@roboticseducation.org.
All time are estimates and subject to adjustment up or back to keep tournament moving smoothly so be early and be patient! :)
