Chapter Events:

On October 12th, 2017, the South Central Chapter will hold its annual meeting in Bryan, Texas, on the site of the Texas A&M Riverside Campus.  Students from numerous universities in the area will be coming to Texas A&M on October 13th for an annual geotechnical lecture, and these students will be invited to a Field Day on the 12th to observe drilling equipment in action.  All South Central Chapter members are invited to bring their equipment to the site to participate in the demonstrations being conducted for the students.  The day will begin with the field demonstrations, with the chapter meeting to follow in the evening at the local Hilton. 

This is a great opportunity to develop a positive relationship with the engineers of the future.  Many of these kids will show up on your jobsites in coming years without ever having seen a drill rig in person.  You can help to make them better engineers while networking with your colleagues of the future. In addition, this will be a great opportunity for any members who might be looking to hire engineers at some point in the near future. 

In addition, the Riverside Campus just began development as a major research park, and lots of construction is planned and ongoing.  This is a good opportunity to pursue information about possible future work at the site.

Anyone wishing to bring equipment to the demonstration should notify Roger Kaminsky, with Belltec Industries, (roger.kaminsky@belltec.net), by September 22nd so we can allocate space properly.  All presenters will be given equal time, and an introductory talk will be given to “set the stage” in geotechnical terms for the students. The site will be available for equipment staging on October 11th.
