Re: INAUGURAL VEX ROBOTICS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP COMPETITION ANNOUNCED

Drat! That's the week before spring semester finals! Otherwise, I bet I'd be there.

No, I don't go to CSUN. It doesn't surprise me that they're hosting a championship event. Though I do wonder where they'll hold it. (The space they had for Hangin' Around wouldn't fit 1000 teams.)

1000 students not teams so I'm assuming at least 100 teams maybe max of 200-250.

Re: INAUGURAL VEX ROBOTICS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP COMPETITION ANNOUNCED

I have to go to my brothers graduation, I am so bummed to miss this. My team is helping run the event. I will still be helping with a lot of the stuff, just wont actually be there. But my priorities are in order, although it stinks that 2 major events are happening at the same time.

Re: INAUGURAL VEX ROBOTICS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP COMPETITION ANNOUNCED

I am also quite curious to see where in CSUN this will be held. I live 4 minutes away and am there a lot for other things, and I can't seem to pinpoint a part of campus that I have been on that would be a suitable place to have a Vex event for over 1000 students (thinking about the team areas and all). Then again, the campus probably has an area somewhere, I mean if not this event wouldn't have been placed there.

But, a best of luck to the group and teams who are running/helping/planning it. I would like to help out and am sure the rest of the team would as well, so don't hesitate to ask!

I'm of course interested, keep me informed

But like others said, where on CSUN will they put it?

In speaking with the people from CSUN, it seems they've been able to secure all the athletic facilities they need for this event. At this point, I think they have both the Matadome (basketball gymnasium, which I think seats over 3,000) reserved in addition to the entire Redwood Hall and a second gymnasium right next door for pit areas. They are confident they will be able to host around 100 teams, and if the demand exceeds that, we'll see what options are available.

We're also very excited about this event and are thrilled that it will be inclusive of all the top teams from Vex Bridge Battle events, FTC events, WPI Savage Soccer events, and more. We've heard from many teams in various countries that they are really looking forward to competing with teams from North America - so it should be a true World Championship celebration with an amazing collection of teams.

There are a number of great partners and sponsors working together to support the event - in particular, I've got to send kudos to Autodesk for making a direct donation to support every participating team by reducing the entry fee to only $100 per team (from the planned $300). Very cool.

Anyway, just wanted to clarify that CSUN does have facilities capable and available to host a great high quality event for many teams. Should be a terrific celebration and competition to finish the 2007/2008 season.

Happy holidays to everyone. Best regards,

Jason

Well, most teams have 10+ kids. So I'm guessing 50-100 teams. They had no problem doing 50ish teams last weekend, so I think they could do it. Especially if they did two divisions.

EDIT: Jason has a much better answer..... Let the page sit for a while before replying, didn't see those new post...

Re: INAUGURAL VEX ROBOTICS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP COMPETITION ANNOUNCED

So the event starts tomorrow. Who will be attending this event? I was curious seeing no one has really been discussing it..
I'll be stopping by Saturday before work, seeing I live ridiculously close to the venue.

I will be watching this event via webcast. I like how this event is extremely international (I believe half the teams are international team). Go Canada and China!

It's ONE WEEK too early. Otherwise I would be there (assuming no other commitments). Something about the weekend before finals...
