Held at Davis Senior High School in Davis, CA the tournament attracted over 50 teams with a capacity of 45 teams, resulting in a waitlist. The organizing committee opened the educational sessions to everyone and encouraged any teams on the waitlist to attend the event and take advantage of the twenty two Fall Workshops organized by Team 1678 Citrus Circuits. Teams were limited to one robot each, to maximize participation.
2019 – Hosted by 2073, Pleasant Grove HS, Elk Grove, CA
In addition to the robotics competition a record twenty five Fall Workshops are held across two days – during lunch and in the evenings!
The tournament goes 100% virtual due to the pandemic circumstances and is available for teams all over the world to attend! We held two packed days of workshops and panel discussions on a variety of topics.
Changing COVID guidelines prevented an in-person event in 2021.
