I have a quick question about VEX skills qualification spots. In California at this time, we currently have 34 qualified teams with 40 spots total. 9 of these 34 teams have a double qualification, some of which were gained through signature events. Furthermore, two of these 9 teams have qualified three times, once at a signature event and twice through states. My question concerns how the spots would be allocated. Would it be
40 (California allocated spots) - 34 (Currently qualified california teams) = 6 spots
9 (Number of double qualified teams) + 2 (Number of triple qualified teams) = 11 spots?
The question here is if additional spots are determined by either the number of multiple qualifications in the state or the number of unfilled spots in the state. Since signature event spots do not count towards the state total, qualifying at a signature event as well as states should open up a spot, but I’m not sure if this is true. I would really appreciate it if you guys could give me some feedback about this matter, or if an REC foundation member could step in and clear this up for us.
Thank you so much!
