It’s been a while since we’ve gotten a post up but it’s time that we get started. Due to the oppressive cold still here in the burgh, the first planned rolls for this weekend have been preemptively cancelled. This will give teams a bit longer to get things organized and hopefully a bit more time to finish up any new buggies that they have been working on. As well as allowing the remaining snow and ice to melt that still litters the course.
Sweepstakes Chairman Elon Bauer has been busy getting things ready for this season and would love some feedback from everyone that is a buggy fan. It doesn’t take too long to fill out and will greatly help the Raceday plans. Please take the time to follow this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/
CMU has launched a new crowdfunding initiative for all organizations to raise money. Spirit seems to be the first to bite from the buggy world and is attempting their own campaign to raise $7,400 to help their program. From the page it sounds like they’re working on some new tech and recording devices though it seems that the info gathered will all be kept private within the org. If there are any other teams that are looking to take part in this new crowdfunding platform from the university, please let us know and we would be happy to share what you’re working on.
