We had a lot of fun at K-Day this year! Many students stopped by to try their hand at the spin wheel and some railroad trivia. It's looking like we have some rail-intrigued students, and given the fact we filled up all the chairs at our first general meeting, it is safe to say K-Day was a great success!

Hopefully you had the chance to stop by, but if not, we have some photos from the event here. Also, if you're interested in the construction/voyage of the REAC cardboard boat, contact Kelsey (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Next Tuesday marks the first REAC general board meeting of the semester. We have a very special guest visiting us from Finland! Pauli Kolisoja, a professor at Tampere University of Technology, will be discussing more about his university and the connection it has to Finland's largest rail research group as well as a better look at railroading in Finland. This should be very interesting, so stop on by!
Tuesday, September 9th
As usual, everyone is welcome regardless of major; and there will be pizza and refreshments!
Greetings everyone! Hopefully you had a great summer and are looking forward to the plethora of REAC events on track for the fall!
For starters, REAC will have a table at K-Day! K-Day is a wonderful opportunity to get out and see what organizations and clubs Michigan Tech has to offer. We will have brochures and we'll be ready to answer any questions you may have about REAC or the rail industry. It sounds like ice cream may be in the works, so make sure you come and check us out at McLain State Park!
Secondly, a reminder that the 10th Annual Railroad Night, and first ever Railroad Day have been scheduled for October 14th. Mark your calendars because this is one day you won't want to miss! For more info, click here.
Don't forget about our field trips either! Looks like we'll be visiting the Lake Superior and Ishpeming Railroad operations this fall and Omaha, Nebraska next spring.
