VEX Robotics Competition Qualifier

Saturday, December 15, 2018, 7:00am

This year we are going BIG! For the third year, SUNY Sullivan is proud to host the Catskill New Bot Battle XL, the regional VEX Robotics Competition qualifier! We are excited for area schools to be able to take advantage of an opportunity to work with teams outside of the normal areas.

The Fallsburg teams traveled to the Syracuse, Albany, and Westchester/NYC areas several times over the last three years. Each time, they learned new design ideas and/or strategies. The Fallsburg coach believes that the Fallsburg middle school teams would have not qualified to go to VEX Worlds in 2017 AND 2018 if they had not traveled as much as they did.

Please consider this event only if you’re tired of repeatedly seeing the same ideas as your team(s) repeatedly play against the same competitors. Over the past two years, this event has not only included Hudson-Valley teams, but has also attracted teams from the Westchester, Albany, Binghamton, and Adirondack areas. Because we are large enough, we do run this as a VRC Qualifying Event, and DO include skills.

We already have the ability to set-up six (6) full fields for Turning Point. Because we have outgrown our venue each year for the last two years, we’ve gone big. Thanks to Dr. Marcello and SUNY Sullivan, the event has been moved to the SUNY Sullivan Field House! This venue is not only HUGE, it comes with it’s own consession stands.

We will be running at least:
