We are pleased to announce the 1st annual Texas VEX Robotics Championship. It will be held at Galena Park High School on Saturday March 13, 2010, and is open to all teams that wish to sign up.

We will be using 2 fields, both elevated, and plan on webcasting the event so that it may be seen by all. When the “Madden” field is in use, the “Beckham” field will be setting up for the next contest.

We will be using live real-time scoring, and screens to project the current team standings.

The awards to be given out will include: Excellence Award, Robot Champion, Programming Challenge, Driver’s Challenge, Design Award, Judges Award, and Play of the Day Award. (more could be added)

Tentative schedule:
Friday March 12 - Robot Check-in, Inspection, Practice Day
Saturday March 13 - Final Check-in and Inspections, Opening Ceremonies, Qualifying Rounds, Alliance Selection, Playoffs, Closing Ceremonies

The Texas VEX Robotics Championship will also be a qualifier for the VEX Robotics Competition World Championship, with the top teams earning an automatic spot.
