Big night for RMCC at the Professional Engineers of Ontario Student Papers Competition

The Royal Military College of Canada provided four of the six finalist (teams) at the Professional Engineers of Ontario Student Paper Night held Tuesday, 23 March, at Queen’s University.  The competition is held annually and is open to undergraduate Engineering Students from Queen’s University and the Royal Military College of Canada as a forum to present the results of a significant research or design project.   As the culminating activity of their engineering programmes, the project is usually the fourth year capstone design project of the group. The following teams were finalists, with awards noted:

1st Place:
from Aeronautical Engineering : OCdts M-A Pelletier & K. Latulippe
Presentation: Aerodynamic Wing Design for Supersonic Flight
2nd Place:
from Civil Engineering : OCdts J. Arnold, Z. Coleman & P. Besedin.
Presentation: Bridge Design for the Battle River Crossing at CFB Wainwright.
3rd Place:
from Computer Engineering :  NCdt A. Myrie, OCdt I. Poplawski, & NCdt C. Williams
Presentation: Sensor-Integrating Application for Physiotherapy
Honourable Mention:
from Mechanical Engineering: NCdt A. Gawne & OCdt J. Legault
Presentation : Feasibility Study of Glass Reinforced Nylon for Outboard Propulsion System Manufacturing

All the teams provided excellent presentations.  Congratulations to the supervisors from the Engineering faculty for enabling RMC of Canada cadets in achieving these successes, and congratulations to the teams for representing the College and the Faculty of Engineering with such distinction.

Cette compétition, qui a lieu chaque année, est ouverte aux étudiants du premier cycle en génie de l’Université Queen’s et du Collège militaire royal du Canada, et sert de tribune pour la présentation de résultats d’importants travaux de recherche ou de projets de conception d’envergure. Point culminant du programme de génie, il s’agit habituellement du grand projet de design du groupe des quatrième années. Les équipes suivantes sont arrivées en finale, comme suit :

1re place :
du génie aéronautique : Élof M-A Pelletier et K. Latulippe
Présentation : Aerodynamic Wing Design for Supersonic Flight
2e place :
du génie civil : Élof J. Arnold, Z. Coleman et P. Besedin 
Présentation : Bridge Design for the Battle River Crossing at CFB Wainwright.
3e place :
du génie informatique : Aspm A. Myrie, Élof I. Poplawski et Aspm C. Williams
Présentation : Sensor-Integrating Application for Physiotherapy
Mention honorable :
: du génie mécanique : Aspm A. Gawne et Élof J. Legault
Présentation : Feasibility Study of Glass Reinforced Nylon for Outboard Propulsion System Manufacturing

Toutes les équipes ont fait d’excellentes présentations. Félicitations aux superviseurs de la Faculté du génie pour avoir contribué au succès de ces élèves-officiers du CMR du Canada, et aux équipes pour avoir représenté avec tant de distinction le Collège et la Faculté du génie!

Recreation/Competitive Club Recognition Evening

Submitted by: Samantha Rocheleau – Recreation Coordinator

On Wednesday, March 30th, Cadets, Coaches, Club Presidents, and Supervisors were recognized for all of their hard work and dedication, at the 2015-16 Recreation and Competitive Club Recognition Evening. The event started at 1900hrs in the Cadet Mess beginning with cocktails and h’ordeuvres, followed by a presentation including special recognitions and awards. The evening was led by the Master of Ceremonies, CWSRO OCdt Kevin Pathinather, and concluded with a social, which allowed guests to celebrate all of their accomplishments from this past year.

During the presentation both Club Presidents and Coaches were honoured, and received a small gift to recognize all of the many hours and support that they have offered this year. Without the continued effort of these individuals, Recreation and Competitive Club programs would not be possible.

Following the special recognition, each Competitive Club Coach was given the opportunity to present two awards. The following members of the Competitive Clubs were recognized:

RMCC Running Club

Outstanding Rookie – OCdt Nick Bomers

Outstanding Runner – OCdt Pier-Alexandre Lacasse

RMCC Sailing Club

Rookie of the Year – OCdt Ryan Harding

Sailor of the Year – NCdt Ben Antworth

RMCC Swimming Club

Dedication & Leadership Award – OCdt Pavlo Besedin

Top Swimmer – OCdt Dain Saulnier

RMCC Women’s Rugby Club

Rookie of the Year – OCdt Brianna Kelly

Most Valuable Player – NCdt Melody Schonfelder

RMCC Taekwondo Club

Rookie of the Year – OCdt Antony Cai

Most Valuable Player – NCdt Thomas Song

RMCC Rowing Club

1st year boat – Ocdt Jake Pittman, OCdt Thomas Rossell, OCdt Drew Spinney and OCdt Conor Park

Most Valuable Rower – OCdt Derek Van der Velden

The evening’s most prestigious award, the Volunteer of the Year Award, is presented annually to an Officer-Cadet who has demonstrated leadership, commitment and has made a significant contribution to their respective club. There were five nominees this year including: OCdt Lara Shalab Alsham (Chess), OCdt Josh Campbell (Yacht), OCdt Clare Choi (Swimming), OCdt Rachel Wilt (Rowing), and OCdt Gwen Jang-Naruse (Women’s Rugby). This year’s Volunteer of the Year Award recipient was awarded to OCdt Rachel Wilt (Rowing).

 RMC Foundation enables RMCC Students to attend a cultural night in Montreal

Upon our arrival in Montreal, our first stop was a visit to a special exhibition at the Grande Bibliothèque. The exhibition, which was called “The Library at Night”, showcased the philosophical, architectural, and social foundations on which all libraries rest.

We entered the exhibition and were guided into a small, dark room lined with bookshelves. The first portion was an auditory experience. The lights were dimmed and only specific items in the room were illuminated, creating a surreal atmosphere.

Guided by the voice of a narrator, we learned about the history of libraries, and the symbolism represented by books and literature throughout the ages. We then moved into an immersive hall that had been transformed into a life-like forest, with trees, foliage, and even a starry sky above. The forest was complete with study tables and chairs amid the tree trunks, and after taking our seats, we each donned a virtual-reality headset.

The headsets were equipped with earphones and 360 degree immersion technology, which allowed us to explore ten different libraries from around the world with astounding reality.

This experience was the perfect primer for our cultural sortie in Montreal and undoubtedly enhanced all of the students’ appreciation for the institution of the library.

Grâce à la fondation des CMR, des étudiants du Collège militaire royal du Canada ont assisté le 9 mars à Montréal à une exposition interactive de Robert Lepage suivi d’une pièce de théâtre intitulée En attendant Godot

La pièce de théâtre était des plus intéressantes. Écrite par Samuel Beckett et dirigée par François Girard, l’ensemble de la pièce est orientée vers un questionnement existentialiste.

Les deux personnages principaux, Vladimir et Estragon, attendent la venue d’un personnage mystérieux, Godot. Pendant l’ensemble de la représentation, ils cherchent à passer le temps et se demandent si Godot viendra. La pièce est divisée en deux actes.

Le second est une représentation en accéléré du premier. Suspendu à la scène, un tas de sable sur lequel gît un arbre mort, lequel laisse écouler du sable, laisse penser à un sablier, symbolique du temps qui passe et qui n’amène nulle part.

La pièce est une métaphore de l’absurdité de l’aventure humaine : Godot ne viendra pas.
