UTEP Concrete Canoe Team

UTEP will be competing in the Texas-Mexico Regional Concrete Canoe competition on April 25 through 26, 2014, which is hosted at the University of Texas at Tyler, in Tyler, Texas. The team is building a concrete canoe and will compete against other universities on the design of the canoe, the quality of the finished concrete, an oral presentation, and a paddling race. The winner of the Texas-Mexico Competition will be invited to compete at the national competition that will take place in June 2014 at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown in Johnstown, Pennsylvania.
The concrete canoe team, “Team Legacy,” is actively fundraising to cover expenses, such as building materials, tools, supplies, and travel expenses, and is asking for contributions to help with this year’s competition.
