Let's get prepared for the regional competition in Chattanooga!!!...

next regional competition will be held in Chattanooga, TN on March 19-21, 2015 where we hope to qualify for nationals.

Clemson will host the 2015 National Concrete Canoe Competition on June 20-22 and the University of Missouri-Kansas City will host the 2015 National Steel Bridge Competition on May22-23.

From our paddling coaches...

Several of you have expressed interest in racing the concrete canoe, and we're really looking forward to meeting all of you.

If you think you'd like to give racing a try, definitely come and check it out.  We'll warn you, our canoes are pretty unstable at first, so bring a towel and a change of clothes, just in case!  (We promise, no one ever died from falling in the duck pond.  No one ever grew a third arm, either.)  If you decide you like it and want to be a part of the paddling team, we'll go ahead and set a practice schedule that accommodates everyone.


Contact: Tiffany Walden or Michelle Rule for details.

From our boat chair...

I'm helping coordinate canoe construction, so please feel free to contact me regarding opportunities to get involved with Chapter activities.

ASCE Memberships:

UAH ASCE accepts members from all engineering disciplines, not just civil engineering. We collect local chapter dues ($25) but national student memberships are free for all of our student chapter members. So if you are interested in joining the UAH ASCE Chapter, contact one of the chapter officers. 


Important Developments:

Our "HOT LINKS" program is a tremendous success and ConcreteCanoe.org remains at the top of the search engines.  We developed this site in an effort to bring all active concrete canoe sites, as well as pertinent activities, commentaries, rule changes, and other information provided by the CNCCC, ASCE, MBT, our competitors, and us to the attention of the general public.  You'll see little UAH bias there and we are receiving help from Wisconsin, Laval, Nevada-Reno, Clemson, etc.
