VEX Coming to M.A.R.C. 2011

In looking at ways to keep our students envolved with the robotics program and training them on robotics fundamentals before the FRC season. Team 1528 is looking into becoming a VEX Robotics Competition Event Host in late October/ early November.

To get interest in Michigan in this event, I am trying to have a demonstartion of the Vex competition at M.A.R.C. 2011. Would teams coming to M.A.R.C. be interested in participating in this demonstration and possibly forming a VEX Competition Organization in Michigan/Nortwest Ohio?

CD,
FYI.
OCCRA (Oakland County Competitive Robotics Association) is an Oakland County robotics, 2 v 2, FIRST-type competition that runs in the Fall Season. To the best of my knowledge it has run for a decade.
In 2007, we added a VEX competition element to the competition. The event begins with 20 seconds of VEX autonomous operation, and then both VEX and large (like FIRST) robots run for the remaining 2 minutes.
Our game is not the same as a pure VEX tournament. The VEX game and larger robot game generally share game pieces. Please stop on by during the fall and see how we run the event.

I believe the Thunderchickens, Michigan State and Cranbrook are the three big players of VEX in Michigan. You should connect with them !
Here are a few useful links about the competitions and teams in Michigan
