For Our Texas BEST Teams
Congratulations for qualifying for the Texas BEST Regional! You have already proven yourselves to be wonderful robot designers. The University of Texas at Dallas is proud to welcome you to the Texas BEST Regional Competition at the Curtis Culwell Center. We hope to make this event as memorable and pleasurable as possible for all the qualifying coaches, mentors, team members and guests.
List of Participating Teams (TBA)
We have automated as much of the registration process for the event as possible on this website. We recommend you print this page to keep track of where you are in the registration process. We have provided checkboxes by each step.
Please follow the instructions below to complete your registration:
Upload your team notebook: We are collecting all team notebooks this year via the Internet. To upload your notebook you will need to scan all the pages and create a digital document to be uploaded. Please save them as Microsoft Word documents or PDF documents only.
Complete Online Registration: One person from each team should complete ALL the steps on the Marketplace page.
*New!* T-Shirt Award Submission: T-shirts are no longer due at the same time as notebooks. You may bring your t-shirt on the day of registration. However, notebooks are still due by the deadline.
Complete Medical Release and Talent/Liability Waivers for all participating members, including coaches, mentors, and volunteers who are attending. Please try to submit all forms and releases by November 2. Late forms can be turned in the day of Registration.
Please use the below address or fax/email for completed forms:
Please write team name and number at the bottom of all forms.
|Hotel Reservations and travel arrangements: Hotel Information is available on the Hotels/Local Info tab above. If you are booking a bus, check with the company about how long the driver can be on duty without having to take a break. Many states have laws regarding driving-time limitations for bus drivers.|
|Championship Handbook: Download, print and read carefully. Make copies for other key people, particularly noting the information found in Pit Protocol & Information, and the General Information & Important Notes sections.|
|Emergency Contact: Determine one adult who will be responsible for receiving any emergency phone calls that may occur from home while your team is at Texas BEST. Provide that person's cell phone number to parents, school officials and others as you see fit. Texas BEST and the University of Texas at Dallas cannot be responsible for such calls. In addition, please have a liability/photo release and medical release form for minors (click here for adult version) signed by a parent or guardian, in your possession, in case emergency medical attention is necessary. Releases are required for all participating members, including coaches and mentors.|
|Texas BEST Conclusion: We have many teams coming from far away that need to leave as soon as possible after Texas BEST comes to an end. We assure you we are conscious of this in putting together the schedule and will do everything possible to stick to our time line. However, the schedule does not always work out as planned. Be aware that the number of competition rounds for the robots may need to be reduced in order to complete Texas BEST on time.|
