- This event has been canceled.
- It is past the registration deadline.
This event will be hosted in association with NETRA event partners.
This will be a standard competition with standard judging and skills.
As you prepare for this upcoming event, consider the following:
- Make sure that your robot passes inspection before coming so that our inspection does not have any delays.
- Be aware of rule changes to gameplay as well as field setup. Remember that any challenges to the rules are expected to be brought to the head ref with the rulebook in hand and the supposed rule violation pointed out.
- Make sure you bring all the gear you need. Things that are commonly forgotten: Power cords and strips, goggles, spare motors and wire, USB cable for downloading code, etc.
- Review the descriptions and criteria for the awards that are being given during the tournament. Be aware of which awards require an engineering notebook, an interview, etc.
- Working and adjusting your robot during the tournament is expected and welcome, but if you have to grind or cut metal with a Dremel or grinder, you will do it outside, and you will be responsible for your own safety. I put that responsibility on the individual coaches.
