First meeting of the year

First a quick note: we will be at the Pratt E-Social and activities fair this Friday (9/2) from 1-3:30.  We will then go over to the activities fair on East Campus from 4-6.

We're going to have the first meeting of the year for Duke Motorsports this Saturday (9/3) at noon.  We'll meet in Hudson 125 (the big room if you go down the center hallway from the entrance), kick off with a quick introduction presentation, and then head down to the garage for a BBQ/grill session.  Food will be provided.

If you're currently on east campus, we will be picking people up in front of the marketplace and bringing them to Hudson between 11:45 and 12:00 on Saturday.

If there are any questions, feel free to email us at dukeuniversitymotorsports@gmail.com

We will send this information out via the mailing list in a couple days.

Almost end of summer update

School's starting soon, we have our first recruiting event for orientation week on Wednesday (3:15-4:30 in CIEMAS atrium in case anyone is actually reading this...), and I'm well on my way putting together the full car model (well, half a car, and the other half is mirrored).

Bullet points after the jump...
