General Info

Thank you for your interest in the VRC HS Under Over Tournament hosted by Hudsonville Robotics!  This will be our 7th year hosting and we look forward to a fun and collaborative event.  

Facility - The competition will be hosted in the main gym of Hudsonville High School conveniently located one mile north of I-196 just west of Grand Rapids, Mi. Ample parking is available on campus and there are also plenty of resturants and retail locations in the area.  Note: There are large construction projects happening at the high school near the gym. We will have signs posted to assist you in navigating.

Competition - Teams will participate in qualification matches, skills events, judging in the pits, and elimination matches if qualified.  We will be following the rules in the latest release of the VEX Robotics Competition – Game Manual

Judging - We will be collecting Physical engineering notebooks at the start of this event for in-person judging. We will not be able to print notebooks for teams.

Pits - Tables, seating, and electrical charging stations, and public WIFI will be provided. 

Food - Teams are welcome to bring their own food and we will have an array of concession snacks and drinks.  We will also take pizza orders - $15 cash for a large pizza - where we will handle the order and delivery on time for lunch. 

Registration - All participating teams must be registered with VEX Robotics and the Robot Events website and have an official team number before registering for this event. Tournament fees must be paid before teams are allowed to compete. Registration and payments should be made through the Robot Events website.

Volunteer

We have various positions for volunteers ranging from high school age to adult for novice to expierienced volunteers. We will be posting a volunteer signup web page in late September.

We do prefer to have official roles represented from multiple organizations attending our tournament. Teams like to see their own volunteers as referees and judges, as it demonstrates a better level of fairness.  If you have a qualified volunteer that can offer their time for this event, then please email us at [email protected].

Emergency/Bad Weather Policy

In case of bad weather conditions or possible cancellations please visit this page on Robotevents.com or hudsonvillerobotics.com where we will post updates about the event status as needed. 

Refund and Payment Policies

Refunds are available for the full amount minus the $5 RECF fee to teams that cancel at least two weeks prior to the event date.  Refunds can be held until initial payment is confirmed and reconciled.

Travel Info

Hudsonville High School is located on 32nd Ave less than a mile north of the I-196 (exit 62) interchange. 

Parking is on the north of the high school.  Due to the volume of construction happening at the school we will post signage at the event to help you navigate to the event.

Judging Format

At this time the team interviews and engineering notebooks will be judged in-person the day of the event. Teams should bring a physical copy of their notebook to submit to the judges.
