General Info

Welcome to  No Way Snow Day! the first ever VRC event in the London-St. Thomas area! We are excited to host 32 teams and look forward to offering head to head competition & skills competitions for the 2023-24 Over Under VEX Robotics Competition. 

We have partnered with Canadian charity, Just Cause Education Outreach (@justcausecanada) for this event. This STEM education focussed charity has developed a robotics program in Uganda, Africa called the "Ugandan Robotics League" (aka the URL), and this event will be supporting their 2024 championship tournament in Jinja, Uganda. A robotics parts and computer/tablet tech drive will be taking place at No Way Snow Day as well. The items collected will be brought over in March to the Ugandan youth teams. We welcome any VEX EDR, V5, VEX IQ (any gen) parts donations as well as LEGO robotics and past game elements from any competition your team has been involved with. We are also helping to assemble 200 "swag bags" for this event and item donations that could be used for this purpose are also very welcome! Please conact us for more information.
