If you haven't seen in one of our latest newsletters, the VEX Robotics Competition (VRC) National Championship is returning to the Vodafone Events Centre in Auckland on 19-21st February 2021!
We are also opening our slots for volunteers - this is our largest event of the year, and we need maximum volunteers to help make it a success.
As this event develops, we will be sharing important news like support with accommodation, schedules, design notebook submissions and more. Make sure that anyone who should be receiving this information is subscribed to our mailing list and selects "VRC Events" as a topic of interest.
REGISTER NOW FOR NATIONALS
The RobotEvents listing for VRC Nationals is now open - thank you to everyone for their patience with this.
Register your team for the Nationals by clicking the link below - invoices will be issued to your organisation after registration and due 28th February 2021.
A reminder that to compete at the National Championships, your team MUST:
Have your team/s registered and paid on RobotEvents (this is charged direct by RECF at $200AUD first team, $130AUD each team thereafter)
Register your team for the VIQC National Championship for the event.
RECF Consent Forms must be completed for every student.
At this stage, it is not necessary to RSVP on the Kiwibots Events page for the VRC Nationals. We are working on an easier solution to contact trace attendees for this event given it covers multiple days and people will be in and out often. Watch this space for info on how we will be managing attendance.
Note: RSVPs for regular scrimmages still applies.
There is a fee of $150NZD per team to compete at Nationals (unlike our other scrimmages which we put on for free). Your organisation will be invoiced for this - please let us know if you need the invoice urgently (i.e. to pay from 2020 budgets).
Call for Volunteers
We need your help with making sure this event is a success!
If you have a few hours to spare, we'd love for you to join at the event. No experience is required, you can help with queuing, field reset, and more. Sign up to volunteer on this link.
There's a job for everyone and anyone, no-one is too young or too old to help out at this (and you get to keep a neat Kiwibots t-shirt at the end of it too!)
