Personally I would LOVE to see VEX move the world championships around more like this year! I think that issues with booking the convention center in Dallas was just what VEX needed to get them started! A world championship should show the teams different places in the world by moving around more frequently. And at the same time VEX is giving students a GREAT oppertunity to go places that many students would never be able to if it wasn’t for the VRC World Championships.
I hope you are right and it is moving west to California?
Disneyland would make a lot of sense for 2012 as Disney is set to finish their 1.1 billion dollar expansion of Disney’s California Adventure. Right now they have Goofy’s Sky School and The Little Mermaid attractions opening in about a month. Then in spring 2012, the brand new Cars land is going to be opening.
If you couldn’t already tell, I am a theme park geek in addition to a roboteer. Ill be in EPCOT Friday night after the competition, so catch me if you can… (you won’t be able to…)
I guess Vex was kind of lucky they didn’t spill the beans on the new game, or do you think that was what the second tile (who’s text was a repeat of the registration prompt), will have a picture of when it is eventually released?
And Ryan - I am really glad I will be with you at Disney, because we both know that you can talk the talk, but I am ready to see you walk the walk:p
If it’s in California next year I know my team will be sooo happy! We’ll either be able to either go if we qualify or at least go watch. I can’t wait to find out either way. The anticipation is half the fun! haha
After a quick look around Disneyland in Google Earth, the Anaheim convention center could definitely be a venue for the 2012 VRC Worlds. It has lots of space and an arena similar to that in Dallas. Any thoughts?
After more comparison with the space available at ESPN Wide World of Sports, there would definitely be much more space in Anaheim. To me, it would make a lot of sense to host it in Anaheim.
