General Info

This is the 6th Annual Very Merry Holiday VEX Tournament! Again, there are two concurrent events this year - a High School Event and a Middle School Event in the same gym. This is the MIDDLE SCHOOL ONLY - and you can find the High School Division on robotevents.com.

This has become one of the largest annual events in the U.S., and top Michigan teams will come out to play.   There will be eight competition fields in one gym (and of course they will all be named after the reindeer)!

A lunch buffet is available for teams attending the VEX Tournament.  The buffet will have a choice of a hot dog or two pieces of Andiamo's pizza (cheese or pepperoni), salad or fruit, a snack and choice of drink.  $5 per person.  Coaches will pick up lunch tickets and pay for lunch order at the check-in table the morning of the event.  Use the link below to pre-order your team lunch:  http://bit.ly/Dec7VEXLunch
