We are a team of dynamic, hard-working Concordia students preparing to compete in the 2022 edition of the Great Northern Concrete Toboggan Race (GNCTR), to be held in Calgary this year. The team is composed of 25 undergraduate students from varying disciplines including civil, building, mechanical and software engineering. We are all volunteers, and are selected according to experience, knowledge and passion!
The Concordia Concrete Toboggan Team 2022 will represent Concordia in the Great Northern Concrete Toboggan Race (GNCTR), the largest and longest running Canadian undergratuate engineering competition. We must design and manufacture a toboggan that carries five passengers, and includes concrete skis, a structural frame, braking and steering systems.
This year our design theme is Boggstco (like Costco)!
The last time we competed, in Toronto in 2020, we won 2nd place Overall out of 21 teams! We also placed in a variety of other categories, including 1st place for Best Team Spirit, 2nd place for Toboggan Design and 2nd place for Best Performing Toboggan.
Why we need your help
Your donations will help us buy the material required for the construction of the toboggan, including the concrete skis, superstructure, braking and steering systems.
We also need help covering the costs of shipping the toboggan to and from Calgary, as well as registration, travel, and acommodation for team members.
This year we hope to bring 25 people to the competition to represent Concordia and hope to provide students with the invaluable opportunity for professional development, and an extra-curricular atmosphere that fosters cooperation and school spirit.
