"Drive and Ride" Event Sept. 29

The Automotive Trades Department of Alfred State College (Wellsville Campus), in conjunction with Tenneco, is sponsoring a "Drive and Ride" event on Monday, Sept. 29, 2008, from 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Wellsville Campus.  This event is open to the public free of charge.

An obstacle course will be set up in the front area of the campus and Tenneco will sponsor a session of interactive automotive technology demonstrations and drive experiences, including a fleet of identical vehicles running on a custom-designed temporary road course. 

The Drive and Ride activity offers participants the chance to drive two cars, comparable in every way but one:  one car will have its original shocks and one car will be equipped with Monroe premium shocks.  Drivers will evaluate their performance on a road course constructed on campus to test driving skills-look out for those speed bumps, pedestrians, and wildlife!

There will also be prizes available, including certificates to the campus bookstore.  All students will be receiving information in their mailboxes and arrangements will be made for commuters to join in the fun too.  It's great fun and a chance to win prizes. 

Feel free to join the Wellsville Campus in this great event.  Faculty, staff, students (from both campuses) and individuals from the community are welcome to join the fun!  Hope to see everyone on Sept. 29! 

Information sessions are scheduled for 8, 8:30 and 10:30 a.m. as well as 12:30 and 4 p.m.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call the Auto Trades Department at (607) 587-3117.
