VRC Qualifying Event

This VRC event is a qualifying event to the Washington VRC Regional Championship.

The following awards may qualify to the Washington State Championship:
(2) - Teamwork Champions

Additional awards to be given:
(1) - Excellence
(1) - Robot Skills
(1) - Design
(1) - Judges

The event must meet the VRC Qualifying Criteria for the results to upload to RobotEvents, which can be viewed in the Uploaded Documents event tab. The state qualification spots are determined by the capacity of the State Championship, the number of events in the state, and the size of the event. If there is an out-of-state/region/province/nation team, or a team that double qualifies from the event (not from previous events or other methods), that spot will go to the next highest unqualified team on the Robot Skills ranking at that event. There is no look-back to previous events to see if a team has previously qualified. These spots will be filled by the Regional Support Manager after the event has been uploaded and the results have been verified. If you have questions about the State Championship qualification process, please contact your Regional Support Manager.

Pizza and drinks will be available for purchase during lunch.
