You are invited to attend the 2013 ASCE Mid-Atlantic Regional (MAR) Conference, which includes the Steel Bridge and Concrete Canoe competitions.  We expect approximately 300 students from 14 colleges and universities. There will be five canoes, and twelve bridges competing. 

The competition will be held April 20/21, 2013.  On Saturday, April 20, the events will be held at the Pitt-Johnstown campus.  On Sunday, April 21, the primary events (Concrete Canoe races and Steel Bridge assembly) will be held at the Quemahoning Reservoir, at the Summer’s Best Two Weeks (SB2W) facility.  If attending, you may see bright yellow signs directing you to MAR.  Due to the remoteness of SB2W, breakfast and lunch will be available for purchase from Boy Scout Troop 100.  After 4:00pm, dinner will be available for purchase from Clem’s BBQ.

Come and cheer-on the Pitt-Johnstown Team!  We look forward to a large turnout from the local community, as well as engineering professionals in and around Johnstown.
