Just wanna bring to your attention that U-M is hosting the annual regional Steel Bridge and Concrete Canoe competition this year. Our regional is the North Central region and our competitors are MSU, Michigan Tech, Wayne State, Toledo, Ohio Northern, U of D, WMU, and Lawrence Tech.
Saturday's festivities go from 9 am til 5 pm at Pierpont and Duderstadt buildings on north campus. The steel bridge competition (UMich steel bridge won last year's regional and went to nationals) starts around 10:30 am and the concrete canoes will be on display and have their presentations starting around 2.
Sunday is concrete canoe race day up at Independence Lake, in Webster (a good 10 minute drive up US-23 from campus). Canoe races start at 9 and are the men's endurance, men's sprint, women's endurance, women's sprints, and co-ed sprint.
If you live in the area and have nothing to do this weekend, come check out this cool competition.
