International Extension

April 15th, 2018 | Posted by Ryan Grainger

WOW! Can you believe it is already April 15th? That means RoboRAVE International is less than a Month away, and everyone throughout Roboquerque is getting excited!

Oh yeah, we almost forgot, April 15th is normally the day we close registration. However, this year we scheduled RoboRAVE International for the second weekend in May instead of the first, so we just realized we can hold registration open an extra week.

So if you didn’t quite get your registration finalized, don’t worry:


Important Note: if the bar above your team is RED and not GREEN, you've not completed your registration.

If you’re having any problems at all creating, populating, or finalizing your team registrations; check out the Teams section of our Participants page.

Or, feel free to Contact Us and we will be glad to assist you.

Let’s all work together to make this the biggest RoboRAVE International ever held, now that's a huge WOW!

We look forward to seeing you in less than a month.

Paying Fees & Video Uploads

March 21st, 2017 | Posted by Ryan Grainger

We've had a massive number of signups over the past few months, and many teams have been created. But we must stress that even though a team exists you must pay for teams ahead of the event deadline.

  • Purchase Orders take time to process so we're requesting they be sent to us at least 2 weeks before to account for delays.
  • We do accept payment via Stripe for those not wanting to wait, the whole process is automated.
Once our system sends you a purchase code, you need to assign the code to your teams for them to count.

We have now activated Video Uploads for Before Event Participation (BEPs), this is also where any challenges that require video should be uploaded, we are limiting the format to MP4 only as it is the easiest to work with, if the video matches our criteria we will upload them to our YouTube channel for the world to see!
