5th Annual ASCE Golf Tournament
ASCE’s first fundraising event of the 09-10 school
year turned out to be a great success.
Temperatures into the 80’s and clear skies
allowed for great golf all afternoon. 11 teams
competed in a best ball tournament at the Mad
Russian Golf Course in Milliken, CO, but nobody
could keep up with the winning score of 51 shot
by the TST Inc. team.
INSIDE THIS ISSUE Behind TST, Kiewit shot a 56 and Dr. Van De
Lindt’s team came in third with a 58 on the day.
ASCE would like to thank Anderson Consulting,
Engineering America, Stantec, CTL Thompson,
Webelos Day Applegate Group, Dr. Clark, and Dr. Roesner for
helping make the tournament possible. Former Webmaster Isaac

Chunkin Contest to support ASCE
Do you like smashing pumpkins? If so, join us at the Northern Colorado
Pumpkin Chunking Competition on October 24th to see the greatest
pumpkin smashing show on the Front Range. CTL Thompson is sponsoring
the Pumpkin Chunkin Competition, and challenges anybody to complete
the tasks they’ve set up. Pumpkin Chunkin consists of launching
pumpkins at targets or as far as possible using pumpkin chunkers (air
cannons, centrifugals, catapults, and trebuchets).
Bring your friends along to participate in mini games or watch the
pumpkin chunkin and develop plans to win next year! Contest will take
place at the Osborn Farm in Loveland, starting at 9 AM. For more details
visit the ASCE website or CTL Thompson
Join us to help with Webelos Badge Day
This Halloween, come demonstrate what being an engineer is
all about and help the Webelos Scouts earn their Engineering
Badge. Webelos will complete four different activities,
including catapult building, west point bridge design, circuits,
and floor plan.
TST Inc. Discusses Engineering at CSU
Wednesday, September 23rd – TST Inc. Consulting Engineers presented to
CSU engineering students and faculty about the experiences of new
graduate, as well as land development civil engineering. TST is
comprised of engineers, planners, and landscape architects among others
who specialize in community design and development.
Andrew Gingerich and Steven Humphrey of TST discussed what it was like
for them to enter into the civil engineering field as graduates, and the
common experiences that they shared, and what some of us will
experience in the near future. As recent graduates they discussed how
they had mentors in the company to guide the on their way, and ease
their transition into the professional sector.
It was encouraging to hear what it was like to enter into the field of civil
engineering, something that most of us will be doing in the near future.
