Cinco Ranch New Year Pow Wow VEX tournament

Event website here.

Six ausTIN CANs VEX teams planned to travel Killeen to compete in a tournament on 1/12/19. However, with a last minute cancellation of that venue, only one of our teams was able to switch gears and go compete in the Houston area instead. Many thanks to the tournament hosts and to our mentors for getting us registered so late!

2158K took their (newly redesigned) bot to Katy where we met the friendliest hosts on a beautiful and spacious campus. It was a pleasure to compete in such a setting, and we were happy to see some familiar faces there. Still, we missed having our fellow CANs there.

The tournament started off well and then… it proceeded to reveal some areas for improvement. All to be expected with a redesign, but still a little disappointing. (Did you know it is POSSIBLE to earn zero points in a quarterfinal???)

Team K did take home the Design Award which was well-earned. Congratulations!
