General Info

Competition Preperation

All teams should come prepared for competition. Here are a few steps that every team should take to ensure that they are prepared.

1. Review the rules and run through the inspection checklist about a week before the competition so that there is ample time for adjustments. 

2. Check the official VEX forums for rule updates and changes.

3. Carefully read all of the information contained in the tournament posting on RobotEvents.com

4. Pack for the event the day before the day of departure. Here are a few items that you don't want to forget.
* Goggles/Safety Glasses
* Spare parts & tools
* Batteries and chargers
* Programming cable
* Power strip
* Laptop computer
* Engineering notebook (if you have one, helpful for Judges, Design and
   Excellence Awards )
* Banners and other decorations for your team pit
* Giveaways if you have them

5. Be sure to read 101 Things You Should Know Before Your First VEX Tournament.

6. Review the descriptions and criteria for the awards that are being given during the tournament.

7. Prep for your interviews with the judges. Check the awards tab to see what awards will be given during the tournament.

8. Remember that safety comes first, please don't bring tools that pose a safety risk to your team, or others nearby as the venue is a very tight fit. Also, remember no grinding or other actions that create sparks.

9. Understand how the game will be played. VEX participants are more than welcome to watch the referee training videos before they attend a tournament.

10. Read through the Robot troubleshooting guide. 

11. Ensure that you have the latest version of firmware.

Travel Info

When you travel through the main traffic light in Ocilla, turn on Hwy 90. travel down about a mile and turn right on Brushy Creek Road. Travel down about a half mile and turn left where you see the sign to the school. You will see the parking lot in front of the school. The lunchroom is located on the end of the school closest to the tennis courts. This is where the tournament will be held. We will also have signs out to show you the direction. I recommend you stay in Tifton, Ga. if you want a good selection of places to eat and good hotels to stay in. Tifton is about 20 miles from Ocilla. Ocilla is a very small town with 1 hotel and a few places to eat, no fast food places other than Subway. 

Webcast

We will try to stream the competition. More info. will be given later.
