The Website Has Returned!

With a little struggle, we have our website back and up to date!

Now for an update about the team:
Our theme for this year is going to be GREASE. Yes, the movie. It will be awesome and we are super excited. Concrete test pours are completed and we will be doing our final ski pour in two weeks. The frame design is nearly complete! Everything is on track and we are looking forward to the competition in Kelowna!

Also, for all you twitter folks, follow us! @DalGNCTR

Footage of our run

Here is footage of Dalhousie’s toboggan on race day. Due to unforeseen events and an icy track conditions the toboggan did not perform as expected. Better luck next year!

The crate’s noble return

The crate is expected back some time next week during reading week.  This means:

  • The techs may or may not be there.
  • We may or may not have access to the Heavy Structures Lab.
  • We may or may not have access to the crane.
  • We may or may not have to unload the crate outside and bring everything in piece my piece.

In any of these cases, we need your help!  So, who’s around next week?  The more the merrier.

Back to real life

If you’ve seen the post before this, you probably assumed that I was going to do a post a day of the event.  That was indeed the plan, but it didn’t happen.  There was just too much awesome going on!  I was able to snap a fair amount of pictures.  I’ll post them as soon as I can, but this silly thing called work keeps getting in the way!

On that note, to the team: Remember to send me (dalgnctrsec@gmail.com) any and every picture you took over the trip.  We’re looking to get the sponsors’ thank you package ready ASAP, and put together the “Any time” recruitment poster campaign in time for the T-Room night coming up.  (If you have no idea what poster campaign I’m talking about, e-mail me and I’ll fill you in!)

The organizing committee and other teams will be posting lots of pictures and videos on their own websites and through mediums like Facebook and Youtube over the coming weeks so be sure to check those out too!

GNCTR 2012: Day One

We made it to Calgary safe and sound. No luggage was lost, no people were lost and the bus arrived at the same time we did. Just perfect timing all around.

The first night skits were awesome. Ours went off without a hitch!
Drew Carey, with his beauties, came out to host.
Homewrecker (one of the Sprit Judges) got called down to contestants’ row.
This year’s Dalhousie toboggan was up first for bid, complete with a functioning braking system!
Bob Barker and his beauties showed up too, and boy oh boy did Bob beat Drew down… Now THAT was an impressive dance off.
Much thanks to Rod Roddy for the music and mixes!!

We’re on the bus to Banff for the day as I type, and the sunrise is BEAUTIFUL! Should be a good day.
