VX3 did extremely well in their Regional competition this weekend. They did not get an award, but they had a robot run of 265 - one of their best - and had great answers in Core Values and Research Project judging.
Annnnd... they carried out one of their team's Core Values by having lots of fun! :)

These cute little "Lego men" were walking around for most of the day. I'm not sure which team they were from, but their costumes were pretty cool!
