VEX / VEX-IQ Robotics Competition 2015/2016

Hello Everyone,

My name is Brian Yu, I am an event partner for VEX/VEX-IQ Robotics Competition in the Vancouver Area.  I retrieved your email contact info from as you had previously registered a VEX Robotics team in the past.

I would like to tell you about several new additions to our robotics competition.

First, we have created an Elementary/Middle school robotics competition using the new VEX-IQ platform.

Second, we now have an additional type of competition which takes place Friday evenings: VEX Skills-Unlimited. 

This event is a Skills Challenge event: Driver Skills and Programming Skills only.

You may have an unlimited number of runs with your robot during the event (from 4:00pm to 9:00pm).  However, if there is another team(s) ahead of you, you must wait for the other team(s) to complete their run before your turn.

This event is part of an ongoing Skills Challenge event for the entire robotics season.  Therefore no awards will be given at the end of each event.  Your score will be uploaded to Skills Challenge Ranking website.  Teams with the highest score will qualify for world’s international tournament entry (directly).  See the Skills Ranking website at for additional details.

This means you or your robot is competing only against the clock and the world ranking scores.

Please register for the team id, if you haven’t done so:

I encourage everyone to come out to our first VEX Skills Unlimited event at Eric Hamber Secondary School – Friday September 18th anytime from 4:00pm to 9:00pm. We will be demonstrating the new game(s).  If your team is ready to compete, please sign up at: 

Please forward this message to anyone who would be interested in the VEX Robotics and VEX-IQ Robotics Program.

Thank You.
