General Info

Welcome to the McCallum Robo Bonobos Vex SKILLS ONLY Tournament!

Texas Region 4 event

Registration has been extended until Thursday morning.  I will contact out of region teams on the wait list on Thursday if spots remain available. 

This is a last chance event for Texas Region 4 High School teams that have not yet qualified  for the HS Regional Championship. Please do not register teams that do not match these criteria.

Teams from outside the region, MS teams, and teams that have already qualified for the R4 HS Championship may sign up on the wait list for this event. Verify with your TEM that any scores at this event will be accepted outside region 4.

The event will be broken into 3 sessions to shorten the day for teams (see adgenda for times.) When registering, please mail [email protected] with two sessions your team can attend. Teams are welcome to stay longer, but space in the workroom is limited.

The venue will be room 147, where there will be a pit area and a single field.  Although teams will get a short practice time, there will not be a practice field. Come prepared. 

In-person viewing of the field will be very limited, as the field room is small.  The event will be live streamed.

Parking at McCallum is broken into several small lots.  The image below shows the best options for parking as well as the event entrance location.  Although there are a handful of spots on the drop-off loop, parking on the west side of Sunshine (A) is your next best option.  The lot accross the street (B) belongs to McCallum, and the faculty lot (C) to the north is also a good option.

The entrance is accessible, and the venue is room 147 (V). To get to 147 from the main entrance, take the first hall to the right (main hall.)  Take the second hall to the left (F hall.)  Room 147 is at the far end of F hall.
