October/November Update

Hello everyone!

First off the U of C GNCTR team would like to acknowledge and thank to GLJ Petroleum Consultants for their Gold Level Sponsorship to the 2013 team! Without the help from our generous sponsors our team would not be able to compete in this competition. Thank you!


Secondly, an update for late October/early November! My apologies for not keeping this up to date, midterms season hit and it hit hard (I love 16 hour days at the school!).

The overall design of the superstructure has been completed and we are now working on our braking system. The sled is looking sweet and I can’t wait for the test runs.

The concrete is still pouring and investigating some solid (no pun intended) mixes to maximize sustainability.

We are making serious headway in costumes having finished a couple pieces of the costumes for the entire team! Shoutout to Brenden and Mark for looking into the nitty gritty for the tech ex display!

Over the weekend we had our second bottle drive – not as amazing as we had hoped, the majority of the residents in the area don’t keep their bottles but we still did pretty well. We managed to raise $3200 from the first one, and yours truly guessed it right on the money (ha!).

Have a good long weekend everyone – Lest we forget.

Looking forward to seeing how much cookie dough we sell!
