General Info

North Union is proud to present this year's VEX Robotics competition, SPIN UP!   This will be an evening/after-school competition, so please be advised of the tentative agenda.  

FOOD: 

  • Dinner will be provided to all participants...pizza, chips & bottled water.  This will be a "working dinner" as we will continue qualification matches and not take a designated meal break.  Teams will be advised to eat in between their scheduled matches. 
  • There will be a hospitality room provided for advisors and volunteers.
  • Concessions will be available with drinks, snacks, and a selection of hot items.

MATCHES & JUDGING

  • Each team will have six qualifying matches. The tournament will proceed with 2-team alliances.
  • Please familiarize yourself and your teams with the SPIN UP official rules. The GAME MANUAL is a good place to start! 

MISC. INFO

  • All pit tables have access to power. Please bring surge protector/power strips to make sure you have enough outlets for your team.
  • We will have a dedicated WiFi network available for teams to access during this event. This was set up specifically for teams that will need access to online programming software during the event. Please make sure your school laptops are set up correctly in order for you to have access while you are away from your school building.
