General Info

We are looking forward to a fast-paced, exciting in-person event. We will be hosting a VEXU tournament at the conclusion of this event! Teams are welcome to stay and watch if they would like!

This event will take place on Clemson University's campus. Teams will be required to follow all University policies while on-campus. Be sure to acquire a parking pass before attending the event! The most economical option is to purchase a weekend parking pass for $8 - we apologize for the inconvenience! 

Please note: this event will feature the new GPS code on the skills field, but not the competition fields. If you are making use of the GPS sensor and need them on the competition fields, feel free to reach out to bmmcgui@clemson.edu.

Please note: The cortex control system is no longer legal for this season. The only legal microcontroller is the new V5 system.
