General Info

This will be the Morning session of the Kern Robotics League. Teams will need to arrive by 8:15am so that we can get started right on time to be finished before the afternoon session.

The sites may have food for sale.  We will send out an email a few days before each match letting teams know what food will be available and what food is nearby.  

Be sure to turn in Participant Release Forms for all members of your teams online before the day of the event. 

The cost for this event is $205 US Dollars.  No other currency will be accepted as payment.

There will be no refunds from this league.  Be sure that you are planning to be a part of the event, before you sign up for it.  It's not fair to other teams to clog up the event and then back out after the registration closes leaving gaps that are difficult to fill.
