General Info

Purdue SIGBots is excited to host the Purdue SIGBots Winter Qualifying Tournament! We will be hosting the competition at the Purdue Armory. This will be the third VRC tournament for the SIGBots. We have a long history of the most competitive VexU competitions in the world and are working to bring that to VRC. For this event, we are returning to The Armory on the Purdue Campus which has been the location for two of our previous events. This is close to free parking and has a great open space for this large event. 

Purdue's VexU Team, ACM SIGBots, will be in attendance and welcomes all teams who are coming to have fun and compete. They will also be ready to answer any technical questions teams may have with VEX hardware and/or PROS.

Whether you are a new team or veteran team, we welcome you to join us! 

Thank you to all teams in attendance for helping to support the Purdue ACM SIGBots.
