VEX Schedules for BC

Filed under: Robotics Competitions,VEX — dtengineering @ 9:06 pm

I had a phone call tonight from Lance.  Lance is a real, genuine engineer (as opposed to us “teachers with engineering backgrounds”) who plays a big leadership role in organizing robotics events here in BC and supporting teachers and teams in whatever way he can.  Lance was working with Randy (on Vancouver Island) to sort out the timing of the VEX tournaments in Vancouver, and on Vancouver Island.  They had been tentatively scheduled to be just one week apart.

It looks like now we will stay with the December 6th date for the Vancouver VEX tournament.  The location is to be determined, but we have a few places in mind that we should be able to get for free that have worked well in the past.  Randy will move the Vancouver Island tournament back to later in January so that teams will have a chance to re-design and re-build their machines.  That should make for a very spectacular event in the Courtenay/Comox area of Vancouver Island, as the robots always make huge strides in performance between events.  It will be fantastic to see robots at their peak performance on Vancouver Island, as Randy — working with MISTIC — has accomplished a real feat in bringing VEX to Vancouver Island.
