This event will use V5 Smart Field Controllers. Teams must be sure to associate their team number with their brain, and updated to the latest V5 firmware using VEXCode.
This event will use Electronic Notebooks. Team mentors must be sure to have accurate and up to date electronic notebook links entered for each of their teams in RobotEvents.
This is an invitational in-person event for public school VRC programs only. For an invitation to this event, please contact the Event Partner at [email protected] or add your public school team to the wait list. Private teams are welcome to add themselves to the wait list, and any open spots left after December 15 2023 may be filled from the wait list.
All teams participating in this event are expected to follow the RECF Student Centered Policy (https://vrc-kb.recf.org/hc/en-us/articles/9654578622487-Student-Centered-Policy) - NO adult designed, built, or programmed robots. Teams found to be violating the student-centered policy will be submitted to RECF for review and the outcome of that review may impact ability to participate in future events.
This event has Early Bird Registration enabled. Please see this link for more information.
The GVMS VRC Qualifier is a middle school only event. Parking is available in front of Great Valley Middle School.
There will be a snack bar with pizza sold by the pie and by the slice available, along with beverages and snacks.
As a courtesy to the Event Partner, and to expedite registration on the day of the event, you are asked to make payment at the time of the event registration. Those teams not paid one week prior to the event will be moved to the wait list and risk not having a spot in the competition.
Teams canceling prior to the registration closure date and notifying the event administrator ([email protected]) via email by the registration closure date will receive a full refund. Registered teams that are a no-show for the event are still responsible for payment of event registration fees, and will be expected to pay event entry fees at the time of registration for any future events.
