2015 NCCC Design Papers Posted!!

Spring Events:

We will be in the lab or around ECB almost every night to continue working on the boat, stands, display, paper, and presentation. If you'd like to get involved talk to one of the co-chairs or email madisonconcretecanoe@gmail.com. We need all the help we can get to get ready for the regional competition in April! In addition, we will be having paddling practice in the coming weeks once the weather warms up. If you are interested in getting out to practice at tenney stop down in the lab and let us know so we can get you out on the water. We will be holding tryouts as soon as the weather permits to get the race teams practicing!

WE HAVE MOVED!

The concrete canoe team's office has been moved from first floor of ECB to M1076 (mezzanine level) of ECB.
