The Remix is an off-season event in Houston, Texas set for October 26, 2019 at College park High School. This is the same campus that hosted the Lone Star Regional North in 2018 and site of our brand new robotics facility, i.e. Texas Torque World Headquarters.
We are planning for 32 teams with a minimum of eight matches per team. If we reach 32 teams, alliances will consist of four robots during the elimination rounds. The top eight teams are not allowed to select each other. The selection sequence will be serpentine, 1 - 8, 8 - 1, and 8 - 1. Event registration is $300. Once your team has registered, you will receive an invoice via email for the registration fee.
As many of you know, The Remix is scheduled for late fall so pre-rookie teams can participate in the event. This gives them valuable experience before they ever attend a district event. We are hoping we can waive the registration fee for pre-rookie teams.

We are supporting several charities during The Remix and need your help.
- as in the past, we will be collecting Bed-in-a-Bag sets for one of the organizations we support called Angel Reach. They help adults that have aged out of the foster care system, providing training, education, and housing in one of their residences. When they take in new clients, the first item Angel Reach provides is a fresh set of bedding. These are sold as “Bed-in-a-Bag” and they need mostly twin sets. Texas Torque will buy pillows to go with each set of bedding brought in. Every team brings in at least one set of bedding.
- We are also collecting LEGO sets to take to children at the Texas Medical Center. The kits are small, typically $10
- Any profits from registration fees or t-shirt sales go to the other organization we work with, The Montgomery County Women’s Center. We will also accept donations on their behalf.
We also need volunteers to help run this event. Please fill out the following form if you would like to help.
