Qdoba Mexican Grill hosted a fundraising event for the team three weeks ago.  20% of all purchases made by customers presenting this flyer were  donated to the UNR Human Powered Vehicle Team.  We cannot thank the Qdoba on North McCarran enough for helping the team out on their quest for 1st place at this year’s ASME Human Powered Vehicle Challenge! Directions to the participating Qdoba Restaurant can be found below.

The UNR Human Powered Vehicle event a couple weeks ago at the GE campus in Minden, NV went better than we could have ever imagined.  The General Manager of GE Nevada and a many other GE Nevada employees got a chance to ride Waldo, last year’s entry into ASME’s Human Powered Vehicle Challenge, and some even got the nerve to climb onto the tall bike!  We cannot thank Lee Bonner enough for setting up this event, it was great to meet one of our main sponsors face to face and show off to them what we had been working on all last year.  Click here to read the full article published in the Record Courier.  Thank you GE for your continued support of the UNR Human Powered Vehicle Team.
