Texas Skyrise

Texas kicked off the season with the Houston VEX Kickoff this past weekend.

2158Z - Austin Cans came with a fully functional robot scoring skyrise sections and cubes on the highest level. The Robot skills score of 19 was far short of this robot’s potential. The Austin Cans had a great season last year, and skyrise will be no different.

1429A - was ready to go with programming skills with a 11 point score.

And many new teams showed up ready to compete.

Check out the events coming up on the calendar.

I highly recommend these premier events put on by our veteran Event partners.

Oct 11th - Galena Park VEX (hosted by 1429 - Kaos)
Oct 25th - Conroe VEX (hosted by 1477 - Texas Torque)
Nov 22nd - Space City VEX (hosted by 118 - Robonauts)

Eventually robot events will fix up the skills Scores so you can filter by Region

Any videos of this awesomeness anyone would like to share?

Hey Andrew!

Don’t forget Killeen, TX on 10-4-2014:

Last year it was an epic battle, and the Killeen staff put on an awesome event. Sorry we couldn’t make the Houston kick-off – we’re still working on Floyd III’s anti-gravity lift… :smiley:

I wasn’t even aware of this competition, however from the sounds of it i think that there will be some stiff competition again in Texas

Were you intending to upload the event results to robotevents.com?

BTW this event is listed as Programming Skills No & Robot Skills No which is odd for a skills event :rolleyes:

the scores have been uploaded to the [Global skills page

But for some reason they don’t show up on the event. I will discuss with RECF](“http://www.robotevents.com/robot-competitions/vex-robotics-competition/robot-skills/?season=2014-2015”)

It’s fixed and showing the skills results now.

Could you take a look at some of the rather interesting global skills ranking ties? For example robot skills T-12 place has 6 teams with scores of 28,28,27,27,26,26 which doesn’t compute :confused:

A lot of great information shared to all the new teams through the workshops that were presented by Andrew L!
The programming workshop was very informative.

Thanks Thomas for fixing the posted scores!

Funny, and T-26 goes all the way from a score of 20 down to a score of 3. Appears to be some sort of a bug.

Well, the Killeen, TX Skyrise competition on Oct. 4 has been cancelled, apparently due to not enough sign-ups. So we want to encourage teams from Texas and the surrounding areas to sign-up for the Monroe, LA Vex Skyrise competition. The top three robots in the competition will receive a FREE robot kit!

Wow! That’s one of the best prizes i’ve seen at a robot event yet. And the entry fee isn’ t too high either. I don’t know if our team can attend but it sounds really neat

Hush… :smiley: Maybe 5 more teams would help make it fun though.

The YMCPA Skyrise in Houston on 11/15 is sure to be a great event as well! There is still time for South Texas teams to sign up.

This is the first Texas qualifier event with many great teams in attendance.

Congrats to team 1429 for putting on a great tournament !

The finals of Galena Park - Skyrise were impressive. Hopefully someone posts videos of many of these amazing teams in action.

For now , the results have been posted.

A big Texas thank you to all the volunteers that helped make this event a success, especially Mr. Medina for all his hard work in bringing the fields and audio/video equipment! Well deserved Volunteer of the Year!
And thanks to Andrew Lynch for getting the Tournament Manager working!
