Has this always been a thing? Never noticed it before.

Field-side pits have been a thing since the original Chezy Champs 2014. Prices did increase this year for the first time since 2014 due to increases in the costs related to putting on the event.

So excited for CC this year - and for the first time, I hope to find myself on the other side of the glass. Either way I’m excited for another year of the Best in the West™!

Can one of the modifications be allowing overtime climbs? We all want to see them and I know at least Code Orange has a working one.

You know it’s real when the off-season event has to have their own revised Q&A.

We have plans to gather community feedback on possible rule changes for CC2022. Stay tuned for a separate Chief Delphi thread on that topic.

Good Morning,

We’re excited to be able to offer your team an invitation to Chezy Champs 2022, happening in September in San Jose, California. This year we had an exceptionally competitive group of applicants and are stoked for an exciting competition in September.

Payment for the event will be due in July (details to come later).

The event does have a rather sizable wait list. If your team’s situation changes and you are no longer able to attend, please let us know via email as soon as possible so we can relinquish your spot to a team on the wait list.

If you’re interested in seeing who else will be joining us, The Blue Alliance is the home of the up-to-date Chezy Champs 2022 team list.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out via email if you have any questions.

Kind of shocked Team 972 isn’t on the list. I watched their climb at Monterey and it’s amazing. Hopefully they are on the wait-list and have a chance to compete at Chezy. They are definitely a team to watch out for!
