Bigger Hammer?

Just remember, a bigger hammer isn't always the best solution, but it sure is a lot of fun.

Just remember that lateral may look harmless, a little bitty 0.5", but don't take it lightly. Make friends with it, accept it, have fun with it, but don't disrespect it.

For the Record

Bravo NSSBC Rules Committee for the major 2011 Overhaul. It was a great way for up and coming teams to make their mark, and a good way for teams who have been nibbling in the Top 10 to come through and shine. Not to mention the fact that lateral/seismic/wind/hurricane loads have finally been addressed as a primary concern. Bravo.

Very good write up...
...unlike the Georgia Tech one.
I keed, I keed...

Good job y'all. A focused, dedicated effort will do it...everytime.

Cases for NSSBC Hosting Sites (Part 2)

Miami, FL
One of the most recognizable skylines in the entire world, South Florida in general would offer a lot in way of fun for a NSSBC. Outside of Miami proper you've got Marathon and Key West, very entertaining and gorgeous sites to attract some R&R after a long Steel Bridge season. Deep sea fishing, the Beaches, and of course, the 1,484,992 nightclubs to go get your drink and freak on. There is hurricane season to worry about, but in late May there shouldn't be too much to worry about, as hurricane season "officially" starts on June 1st. Florida Atlantic, Florida International and The U could possibly pool efforts to bring a dynamite NSSBC to the greater Miami area.

Baton Rouge, LA
Strong college town with a unique southern flavor. Proximity to New Orleans without being in New Orleans is the biggest plus. Strong engineering program at LSU with perhaps some help from UNO, this could be a Cajun paradise for an NSSBC, just don't forget to bring the rust proofer. Can also jet along the Gulf coastline to Lafayette, Lake Charles, Beaumont and Houston to the West...Gulfport, Biloxi, Mobile and Pensacola to the East. NSSBC in the Maravich Center?

Bozeman, MT
Where? Why? If for nothing else, for the proximity to Yellowstone Park. Montana State may not have the student power to pull it off, so perhaps the students at Montana Tech in Butte could share the burden. Bozeman and Butte are both beautiful frontier towns, and if you haven't seen Southern Montana or Yellowstone in late spring, early summer, it's gorgeous. Average weather can be cool and perhaps even a hair rainy, but by in large the temperatures are nothing extreme on average. This could be a case for a mid to late June NSSBC, give the local weather a chance to warm up. This is a Big Sky, enjoy the country type of's all about seeing some beautiful country, meeting and establishing great relationships with awesome people and focusing on the competition.

San Jose, CA (Bay Area)
Not located smack dab in the middle of Bay Area craziness, San Jose hosts a young, technologically advanced mix of culture in the South Bay. Home of the San Jose Sharks, the San Jose Earthquakes and of course, the San Jose State University Spartans, you're in one of the best locations for a NSSBC. They are a hop skip up the 101/280 to San Francisco, or the 880 to Oakland/Berkeley, and across the mountain on 17 lies the Pacific Coastline and lovely Santa Cruz, CA, or if you're feeling adventurous, you can jet even further down the coastline on Highway 1 to Monterey, Carmel and Big Sur. To make it even better, SJSU has one of the best spirited ASCE Student Chapters west of the Mississippi. Typically, the weather is dry and temperate, but there can be patches of rain that come through in May. One last thing: WINE.
