Sled Test Day


This year’s team finally got a test day in at confederation park and it went off without a hitch. We hauled the sled up the hill using good old fashion human power and put the sled through its paces on a make-shift slalom course. Big thanks to everyone who came out to support us!



Reduce, Reuse and Recycle

Say bye bye to the Cadillac and hello sustainability  This years team is emphasizing sustainable design and reusing parts from old Calgary team toboggans. Last years pink Cadillac got the saw-treatment and was cut up for reusable members. Everything else was sent off to recycling.



The University of Calgary came in Second Overall at the 2012 Great Northern Concrete Toboggan Race! We finished behind Ryerson University , who claimed the well-deserved Overall Champion award. For a complete awards list, go to

If you're not first, you're second.

U of C also picked up Best Costumes for the second year in a row! To check them out, visit:

Congrats to everyone on the U of C team for an awesome showing!

Cookie dough pickup!

We’ve got 474 tubs of cookie dough arriving to the F-Block Civil loading docks  Schulich School of Engineering around 9:30am on Wednesday December 7th.  This also translates to over $2,100 raised to help fund our team!  Thanks to all those who helped out!

The dock is vehicle accessible via Lot 13  (Collegiate Blvd NW, just west of the Nickle Arts/MacHall loop).

GNCTR staffers will be ther ine the morning sorting all the dough and make sure it gets to the right people.  GNCTR People:  You MUST pick up your dough and original order form by 4:00pm on Wednesday!

There will also be a few extra tubs available on hand that day for direct purchase…so if you somehow missed our drive, this will be your last chance to get your hands on a tub of dough…don’t pass this chance up!

Pubcrawl News

Well…it’s no secret that Engineers are about beverages and good times… and it’s with that in mind that I mention GNCTR 2012’s latest bonding event, the 2011 Pubcrawl.

Here’s everything that you need to know:

Theme:  “G is for GNCTR”  Dress up as something that begins with the letter ‘G’ (ie: Ghostbuster, Gandalf, Goldmember, Green Giant, etc.)  Get creative with this!
Tickets:  You can pick up tickets from either Tessa or Kayla, but you’ll want to get them as soon as possible.  $12 for GNCTR team members and $15 for non-members.  We’ll be setting aside tickets for GNCTR team members until 11:59pm on Sunday the 20th of November, but after that, they’re open to everyone!
When: Friday November 25th.  Bus pickup is at the front parking lot of Kilkenny’s at 7:30pm.  Feel free to drop by Kilk’s earlier than that for some early drinking.
Where: Ranchmans, the Back Alley & the Amsterdam Rhino in that order.


This’ll be a good one, so don’t miss it!
