Well, me and a friend of mine (And probably every Vex Team in Canada) feel that Canadian Provincial Level Competitions (Like States in USA) should of awarded with banners and trophies. Currently, Excellence , Champions and Finalists are awarded with a standard Vex Trophy, no Banners. Now, for the new 2014-2015 Skyrise Season, we hope banners can be introduced to Provincial level competitions.
To get the ball rolling, a petition has been set up which will be emailed to RECF and there event partners.
According to the 2013-2014 Vex Toss Up State- Champion Qualifying …
There’s roughly 136 Teams in Ontario with 12 spots up for grabs. 108 Teams in BC with 10 spots up for grabs. Even in Alberta there’s 38 teams with 4 spots up for grabs. Last, but not forgotten, Saskatchewan with 3 teams, and one spot for grabs.
Thats fantastic! hopefully in the future we can get some other achievements such as skills into the mix but this is great to hear! I would like to thank everyone who did put in the time to sign this petition however! 27 supporters within the first 3 hours of running the petition. Thanks for the update Karthik. and thank you to “vexislife”, for posting this here for me, without this post we wouldnt have received a reply from Karthik in the first place.
I’m the teacher advisor for those Sasky teams. Saskatchewan is a great place to live, but it’s a bit lonely for our VEX teams. We generally compete in Alberta, but that only produces 1-2 tournaments a year and no scrimmages.
Could you make a template available to the local reps of the banners so each state/province could print their own? A full PST file or AI file is preferable so it is high quality and can be scaled for printing big.
Maybe you could opt for a slightly different color scheme for the state/province level versus World level.
