Relax and repair

image The South Texas Chapter’s Western Specialty Contractors team claimed victory and first place team in the golf tournament by one stroke with its 8 under par score of 64.

SAN ANTONIO – The International Concrete Repair Institute (ICRI) South Central Texas, North Texas and Houston chapters gathered May 15-16 at the Hampton Inn & Suites in Bastrop for the second annual ICRI Texas State Conference.

    On Friday, guests waited out an afternoon thunderstorm that briefly interrupted play at the golf outing to Pine Forest Golf Club and enjoyed a barbecue feast. On Saturday, three educational sessions were held in the morning, followed by a buffet lunch and a board meeting for all chapter leaders.
    “We had some great technical sessions by John Ziebell about the pioneers in the grouting industry, and Scott DiStefano, who presented a program on ‘Dimensional Stability for Cement-Based Materials,’” recalls Dan Wicht, president-elect of the South Central Texas Chapter. “ICRI has great technical guides on concrete repair and a wealth of knowledge in our membership.
    “ICRI aids in helping the generations to come by giving scholarships to students in the concrete industry. The last presenter of the day was Dr. John Schemmel, PhD, who really tied this all together by updating attendees on the CIM [Concrete Industry Management] Program at Texas State University.” –mh
