Regional Event Hosts

Thank you for hosting a Student Steel Bridge Competition – Regional Event.  A Regional Event Host Guide is provided below. We encourage you to review this guide and use it when creating your event.  While not exhaustive, this guide has been designed to assist you in the effective planning, organization, and administration of a safe, quality and fun competition.  It is intended to serve as a guide that should stimulate thinking on the part of the Regional Event Host Planning Committee. More detailed information regarding the use of the equipment will follow in Regional Event Host Guide Part 2, which will be distributed to hosts by February 1.
