    For the technical report, it states to “submit PDF format file (of the report) to” by February 1st. In previous years, 5 hard copies of the reports were mailed in by the due date. Do any reports need to be mailed in by February 1st? If so, what address do the reports need to be sent to and do the reports need to be at the address by February 1st or can they be post marked February 1st?
    You will need send you 5 hard copies to Gainesville, FL postmark February 1.

    Is there plenty of parking at Lake Wauburg?

    There is plenty of parking for canoe trailers at Lake Wauburg North Shore. All other participants and buses will park at Lake Wauburg South Shore and we will provide transportation between the shores.
  3. 1/23/18 We could not find the address to ship the 5 physical copies of the technical paper for the concrete canoe on your website or on your Facebook page. If you could let us know that would be great. Also if it is postmarked February 1st will we receive a point deduction?
    All of your electronic submissions need to be uploaded to the ASCE Xythos (follow the national  rules) and emailed to by 11:59 PM EST February 1. You may now ship your papers with the post mark of February 1. You will not be deducted points if you design papers are shipped on Feb. 1.

    I need to clarify if the Technical Paper refers to the Design Paper, or the Technical Addendum.
    The technical paper is the same thing as the design paper. Both the design paper and the technical addendum are due February 1 at 11:59 PM to the Xythos site (per National Concrete Canoe Rules) and both must be emailed to by the same deadline.
