Emergency/Bad Weather Policy

In the event of impending bad weather, Rebel Robotics will work with the Valely Mall management to determine if the event can be held on the regularly scheduled day and time. In the case of bad weather, the first choice will be to keep the event on the same day and alter the schedule. If that is not an option, the event will be postponed and held on Saturday, January 21, 2023. Updates will be provided via email and posted to the event webpage on RobotEvents.com.

Refund Policy

If the event is cancelled, teams will be given a full refund. Teams that drop out will be given a 50% refund if notified within two weeks of the event. Refunds are less the $5.00 RECF processing fee.

Health and Safety Policies
