Additional Information

This Practice Tournament (PT) is a great opportunity for teams (especially new teams) to practice and gain constructive feedback prior to the Qualifying Tournament (QT). This event is open to the general public and to the media. The event will be held in the auditorium (the 2-story tall building next to the parking lots). Please follow the posted signs. Each team will have Robot Performance rounds with three optional judging sessions (Project, Robot Design and Core Values). The judging sessions will be scheduled before, concurrent with, or between the performance rounds. Teams may go directly from one activity to the next. Teams may bring food, and snacks and drinks will be available for purchase. A document with detailed tournament logistics will be distributed to teams about one week before the event. Volunteers are needed to assist with judging and to ref the Robot Performance rounds.
