All the winning teams from regional competitions can enter the international final. Please download and complete the forms above and return to SAICE National Office as per the information on each form. As in the past, the branches will be responsible to make sure that the teams get to Gauteng safely. We will collect (from the airport, bus or train station) and transport the teams by taxi to the venue. If your branch requires assistance with glue you can contact Pratley, Eldon Kruger on 011 955 2190. If you require sticks for building, you can contact our supplier in Gauteng, Alex Campbell on 011 793 2123.

Last year each participating branch received R5000.00 from BKS to assist with expenses for your local Bridge Building Competitions. We urge each Branch to please mention BKS's kind sponsorship during your local competition and display the BKS logo somewhere in your venue or in your presentations, wherever possible. We would like to continue to receive the sponsorship and without any return or exposure for BKS, this may or may not happen for the next set of bridge building events.

The BKS/SAICE International Bridge Building Competition 2008 started off with a 'bang' on 28 august with a Mystery Ghost bus tour. The learners then came back to the venue, St Alban's College in Pretoria, to prepare for the grueling building of bridges the following day.

On the morning of 29 August, the learners were given a motivational briefing by Don Duffield, at teacher at St Albans and the set-off to build their bridges. They completed their masterpieces by 15:30 and came back that evening to 'test' their work.

The atmosphere was exhilarating as bridge after bridge was loaded with weights and tested to destruction. Our heartiest congratulations to St Johns College from Zimbabwe who's bridge scored the highest, for the second time in a row, on Friday evening. The Competition results can be downloaded (above).

Thank you to all our sponsors, participating teams, SAICE branches and supporters and to all the teams that took part in the competition, we hope you see you all again next year.
