General Info

This event is open to all VRC teams from any region. The event will be held in KU's LEEP2 building. Attendance on the Friday night is not required, but this will allow some teams to run skills the night before and reduce skills lines on the Saturday as well. Each team will receive at least 6 qualification matches and will be provided ample time to get in all of their skills runs. We will have at least 3 competition fields, 1 skills field, and 1 pracitce field. If team's are willing to bring and set up a field they will have their registration waived. Reach out to me if this interests your organization. This will allow us to have more skills fields and/or practice fields.

If any members of any teams are interested in touring KU, please send me an email and I will put you in contact with undergraduate recruitment. 

Note: Teams who have not paid by January 4th will be moved to the waitlist until they pay. (teams can still register and pay afterwards)

Venue: This event will be hosted in KU's engineering complex (LEEP2). Pictures of the venue are in the image gallery (doesn't load on mobile)

Volunteer

Events like this can't happen without volunteers. There are roles that require no prior experience and even opportunities for children. If you are interested in any position volunteering please reach out to me via email.
This event will be offering VexU skills. If your VexU team volunteers at the event we will allow you 6 skills runs.
 

Emergency/Bad Weather Policy

In the event of extreme weather, the event will be canceled and teams refunded. However, this is very unlikely as this is a 2 day event. It is unlikely the event will be rescheduled.

Refund and Payment Policies

If the Event Partner cancels the event: 

We will provide full refunds to all teams minus the $5 processing fee on robot events.

If a Coach/Mentor completes registration for the event then chooses to withdraw or not attend:

The funding from this event is going towards paying for KU's VEX U team's attendance at Worlds. If a team drops out of the event no refund will be given, but expectations will be considered on a case by case basis if the reason is outside of a team's control (such as weather or a medical event). If you are going to cancel, let me know ASAP so that teams on the waitlist can be added.

Parking on KU campus is free starting at 17:00 on Friday. However, it can be a bit tricky to find a spot close to the venue. Teams may want to consider dropping off a member with their robot at the venue that way they don't have to carry the robot across campus with. We will have more deatils about whcih lots teams can park in closer to the time.

Webcast

The event will be live streamed on youtube in some form. More specifics will be sent out to teams once the live stream is on youtube.

Judging Format

All In-Person Judging - 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.

Note: the event may channel to virtual notebook submissions depending on the availability of volunteers. In the event this happens all teams will be notified well in advance.
