September 2014 Chairman’s Note

 

Hello SAE Milwaukee Section Members and Friends,

As the temperature outside has cooled off, I think that we are all hoping for a few more weeks of warmer weather. The cool winds of fall may be blowing into Southern Wisconsin, but that has not stopped the SAE Milwaukee Section for putting together a fantastic lineup of fall events for you.

 

Hello SAE Milwaukee Section Members and Friends,

As the temperature outside has cooled off, I think that we are all hoping for a few more weeks of warmer weather. The cool winds of fall may be blowing into Southern Wisconsin, but that has not stopped the SAE Milwaukee Section for putting together a fantastic lineup of fall events for you.

This month we will be visiting Manitowoc Cranes, which has been on our radar for few years now. The people at Manitowoc Cranes have put together an extensive tour and a great presentation on their new MLC300 and MLC650 cranes. This is an event you will not want to miss. Please be sure to register early as space is limited. As a bonus, we will have Brian Hannon from MTU to give us a brief summary of the Clean Snowmobile Challenge. If you have wondered exactly what the Clean Snow Challenge is, ways you can get involved, and what northern Michigan has to offer in March, then this is your chance to find out.

In November we will once again be having our annual Student Night. All our student sections will be at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee this year to show off the project vehicles they have been working on and to compete for our annual student section awards. Please join us for an evening seeing what innovative design ideas the student sections have come up with. After the November meeting, the SAE Milwaukee Section will be on hiatus until after the New Year, but don’t fret as we have a list of great events planned for 2015.

I hope to see you all at an upcoming event!

Garrett Herning
SAE Milwaukee Section-Chairman
