"
2003 National Concrete Canoe Competition"
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

The presentations and boats showcased at the 2003 ASCE/MBT National Concrete Canoe Competition were unparalleled in the history of the competition.  ConcreteCanoe.org representatives, John Gilbert (left) and Debbie Hunt (right), attended all of the presentations and documented every question posed to the teams by the judges.

Their boat photographs were purposefully taken with as little clutter (participants, spectators, etc.) as possible to show exactly what each school had to offer.  We appreciate the cooperation and efforts made by the participants during the competition to make this massive undertaking possible.

Statistics for all NCCC competitions, as well as schools that competed since year 2000, can be found in "For the Record."  If any of the information is incorrect or you would like to add or modify something, please contact Dr. John Gilbert.  Thanks!
