BC and Washington State VEX Tournament Schedule for 2010-2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — dtengineering @ 9:58 pm

The VEX game for this year is “Round Up”.   Click on the link for a description of the game and its rules, or click here for an animated video describing the game. To see an early season match, look here, or just search youtube.

Just make sure you read the actual rules and related documents, rather than relying on the video to explain the game.

There are currently five VEX events scheduled for the BC/Washington State area this year. They are:

November 20:       Washington State Jump Start Tournament             Redmond, WA
December 11:         BC Season Opener at Cambie Secondary                  Richmond, BC
February 5:           Vancouver Island VEX Championships                    Courtenay, BC

** The Vancouver Island tournament was previously scheduled for an different date, but has changed in order to relocate to a larger gymnasium.

February 26:         Washington State VEX Championships                     Redmond, WA
March 12:               BC Provincial VEX Championships at BCIT              Burnaby, BC

I’ve included links to register for the first three events. For the final two events, and other VEX tournaments, check out

The BC Provincial Championships hosted over fifty teams in two divisions last year, and many other events operated at close to capacity.  Please don’t leave it until the last minute to register.
