**Note 1: Priority for the Bulldog Bytes Region 1/9 VRC League will be issued to schools located in LaSTEM Regions 1 and 9. Schools outside these regions will be put on the Waitlist and moved to Registered/Competing Teams based on available spots once registration closes.

**Note 2: For this event, organizations are welcome to sign up as many teams as they would like, but any teams after 4 will be put on the Waitlist and moved to Registered/Competing Teams based on available spots once registration closes.

*Teams DO NOT have to attend every ranking session. When in a league, every Team will be ranked based on the number of Matches played. Teams that participate at least 60% of the total Matches available will be ranked above Teams that participate in less than 60% of the total Matches available (e.g., if we run 4 ranking sessions with 4 Qualification Matches per Team, teams that participate in 10 or more Matches will be ranked higher than Teams who participate in 9 or fewer Matches).

*Practice matches will be each day of days 1 - 4 from 4:45 to 5:30 (approximately 2 matches per team per day). Qualification matches will run from 5:30-7:30 (approximately 4 matches per team per day).

*Skills will run from 4:45-7 each day of days 1-4. 

*Engineering Notebooks need to be submitted at the beginning of League Finals (2/1/24)

*Alliance Selections will take place at 5pm on the night of League Finals.

1.  Review the rules and run through the inspection checklist about a week before the competition so that there is ample time for adjustments.

2. Check the official VEX forums for rule updates and changes.

3. Carefully read all of the information contained in the tournament posting on RobotEvents.com

4. Pack for the event the day before the day of departure. Here are a few items that you don't want to forget.

  • Goggles/Safety Glasses
  • Spare parts & tools
  • Batteries and chargers
  • Programming cable
  • Power strip
  • Laptop computer
  • Engineering notebook (if you have one, helpful for Judges, Design and Excellence Awards )
  • Banners and other decorations for your team pit
  • Giveaways if you have them

5. Be sure to read 101 Things You Should Know Before Your First VEX Tournament. 

6. Remember that safety comes first, please don't bring tools that pose a safety risk to your team, or others nearby as the venue is a very tight fit. Also, remember no grinding or other actions that create sparks.

7. Understand how the game will be played. VEX participants are more than welcome to watch the referee training videos before they attend a tournament.

8. Read through the Robot troubleshooting guide.
