Frequently Asked Questions
FAQ will be answered from Emails, Direct Messages from Facebook, Clarifications from the CNCCC, and our team. They will be posted here and updated weekly.
Q1: Is this event really going to be as much fun as Quinn keeps saying?
Q2: Did the dates change? Did the race venue change?
A: Yes! We have moved forward in time by one day, now June 6-8, 2019. The race site changed from Ballard Park (City of Melbourne) to Goode Park (City of Palm Bay).
Q3: Can I dispose of my canoe on Florida Tech's Campus?
A: Yes, you may. Enthusiastic use of a saws-all is encouraged to ensure pieces are under 90lb and placed into a construction and debris dumpster. Talk to Quinn about this.
Q4: Is there a possibility of early arrival on campus?
A: yes, but additional payment for those night will need to be arranged. It will also be a first-come, first-serve basis.
Q5: Can faculty advisors be in different quarters than students?
A: Of course, we were already planning for this.
Q6: What wildlife can I expect at the race site?
A: Manatees, Dolphins, Birds, Alligators (possible), fire ants, honeybees, and Panthers.
Q7: Do you recommend any shuttles or transportation from Orlando International or Melbourne International Airport
A: Orlando Airport Shuttle, Melbourne Airport Shuttle, Uber, XPO Logistics, and any other major carrier.
Q8: How do we ship our canoe?
A: So shipping the canoe will be much like anyone else shipping a package to us. You will address it to us in a specific way (see below) and make sure your carrier has some instructions (deliver with flatbed or truck with lift-gate, no package over 2000lbs) and then you will work with me to pick it up when you get here. We will handle it on arrival and taking it to the storage location (Harris Student Design Center). Once you get here, you can come unpack it and sign for it… after that its mostly on you to get it to where it needs to go. Some teams rent a truck locally and ship their canoes on a movable platform. We will of course try and help as much as possible but will not be able to help everyone at the same time.
If someone from your university wants to arrive a few days before and unpack the boat (we can work out early arrivals) so that its mostly ready when the rest of the team arrives we can talk about that too.
Q9: What is the shipping address?
A: Please use the address below and ensure you notify Quinn of the shipment.
150 W. University Blvd
Melbourne, FL 32901
Q10: Is there a registration cap?
A: Yes, set by ASCE Society at 14 people this year. You may waitlist additonal members to stay in the dorms, or take advantage of the meals-only registration option.
Q11: Is this a multicultural event?
A: YES! Teams participating from the United States, Puerto Rico, Canada, India, and China!
