The Twinkle Town VRC Tourney will follow the Star City District School Policy for bad weather. We reserve the right to cancel or postpone the tournament due to weather conditions. This decision will be made by Star City School District Administration.
Refunds will be made in the event of the tournament being canceled. The $5 fee charged by RobotEvents is non-refundable.
Health and Safety Policies:
Only 5 team members per team will be allowed to attend. Each team is allowed one adult to be present with them. The coaches will be counted as one adult.
There will be a one-way flow of traffic to and from the fields.
Masks will be mandatory.
Temperature checks will be done on all coaches and students as they enter
One team per pit. Pits will be at least 6 feet apart, more when possible.
Each school will have an assigned area of the bleachers to sit, eat, and store their belongings. These areas will be spaced out around the gym. It will be up to the school to social distance within their assigned area. (It will be a large area.)
Spectators will not be allowed.
There will be no concessions. We will work with local restaurants so that you can preorder lunch to be delivered to you at the high school. You may bring your own food. No food is allowed on the basketball court or in the pit areas. It must be eaten in your assigned section of the bleachers.
All fields will have one assigned person to reset the field. This includes a practice field. They will be the only person touching any game elements.
Driver’s stations will follow the new placement to ensure proper social distancing.
Digital notebooks can be accepted and are encouraged. Judging will be done a little differently. We will have a zoom interview with the judges onsite. If you have a team member that can not come to the tournament, we will make accommodations so that they can join the interview. Teams will be asked to bring their robot to the interview station for their interview.
