Website Crash

Hi Team,

We have recently resolved some major website issues, and are now hosted on Macengsociety.ca.

We were able to save our site content, but not the layout. So the website is currently under construction!

New website!

A big thank you goes out to our new VP Communication Cristian Ivascu for our new website!

We’re fixing hosting issues at the moment, but the site will be live soon!

Expanded Exec for 2012-2013

MecVT has undergone a big expansion to our executive structure.
I’d like to give a big welcome to the new exec members for this year!
You can see our new roster on the TEAM page.
Hopefully with the additional Exec muscle, MecVT will be able to further grow it’s member base this year.
It is my hope, that MecVT will not only enhance existing projects, but continue to stretch the boundries of the “custom vehicle”

I’m looking forward to working with all of the new Exec this year!
With some work, (and a little luck) I think we’ll make MAC ENG even prouder of our crazy creations.

I can’t wait for the break, we’ve got some great builds planned!

Want to Become Involved?

MecVT Wants You!
…To get involved with the team!

If you missed our last meeting, here’s what’s on the table for the summer:
Carpool II – New gel coat, BBQ
Carpool III – Re-stain/Repair deck
Hovercraft – Continue work. Install drive engine.
Tempo – Convert to lightweight bedracer.
Motorized Shopping Cart – New brakes, sprocket and chain, repaint.

I’m probably missing things here, but we’ve got a lot planned!
The amount we get done is directly proportional to how many people we have to work on the projects.

If you’re interested in helping with any of the above projects, and are available in the summer, please send us an email.
We’re also looking for project team managers, so if you’re interested, let us know!
Also, did you hear? The ExCEL referendum passed with flying colours. Shop space for future MecVTers!
Also on that note, MecVT needs a representative to be part of the ExCEL ‘User Groups’.
If you’re interested in becoming involved in the ExCEL design process, this is your chance!

Good luck with your exams!
