General Info

Welcome to the Kalahari Classic VEX VRC High School Signature competition! This should be a fun and challenging event for all.
Fun because you have access to the largest indoor water-park within the United States of America. Challenging because we aim to bring the best of the best VEX Robotics teams together from Ohio and the surrounding states so we can better prepare our students for the future. We had teams from four States last year and hope to add additional States this year. World Spots to be announced. The event is setup similar to VEX World's for a great student experience! 

This event is full at this time, however we do plan to increase the number of teams for this event. The event will be updated on October 30th.

Please note this is a two day event.
