Indoor Winter Classic - SEI Fundraiser

The Utah Section of SEI (Structural Engineering Institute of ASCE) is holding an Indoor Golf Fundraiser on February 22nd, 2013 from 12:00pm-6:00pm in Sandy. You don't have to go for the entire time, it is a mix and mingle event.

It only costs $10 (that's discounted from $25) for students to be involved in 9 holes of Mini-golf, a long drive competition, or a closest to the pin contest.

This is a great way for young aspiring engineers to meet with Professional Engineers in the surrounding area. These Professional Engineers will be members of ASCE and not just SEI, so it's not just something for Structural Engineers.

More information can be found on the link to the sign up sheet below.
SIGN UP HERE if you are interested in being part of this fun event.
( Contact Josh Ogle with any questions at or 303-880-6543)
