One of the mandatory requirements in our new ASA Contractor Qualification Program (CQP) is the attendance of a company representative at a full-day Contractor Education Seminar presented by ASA. The Seminar focuses on the many aspects of successful shotcrete contracting and how shotcrete construction compares to more traditional form-and-pour concrete construction. The Seminar is geared toward education of Contractors but may be valuable to Owners, Engineers, Architects, and Suppliers who want to learn more about the details required to consistently construct high-quality, durable concrete structures with shotcrete placement.
Topics covered in this Seminar include:
- Overview of the CQP;
- Site Planning/Logistics;
- Diversity of Shotcrete Applications;
- Concrete Knowledge;
- Shotcrete Equipment;
- Shotcrete Knowledge;
- Shotcrete Testing;
- Equipment Maintenance;
- Shotcrete Specific Safety; and
- Financial Responsibilities.
Attendees seeking Shotcrete Contractor Qualification for their company (one representative per company) will be required to take a written examination at the conclusion of the Seminar.
DEEP SEA FISHING – Amelia Angler Outfitters
8:15 AM – 1:45 PM | Meet at hotel, Uber to docks, 15 minutes away
Fee: $200 per person (six-passenger boats)
Superb bottom fishing action can be enjoyed all year long offshore of Amelia Island. Look for some of the best action during the cooler months. “Schultz’s Fish Market” is a manmade reef located just 5 miles offshore of the southern tip of Amelia Island, offering excellent red snapper, gag grouper, cobia, and black sea bass fishing year-round. Numerous sunken wrecks, lime rock ledges, hard bottoms, and manmade wrecks are also located within 5 to 20 miles offshore. Fishing techniques include fishing right on the bottom from an anchored or drifting boat with fresh squid, cut bait, live baits, cigar minnows, or “Boston” mackerel. Our clients hold their own rods and enjoy the excitement of a large reef dweller trying to yank their fishing rod right out of their hands! When schools of striking fish are present, our mates will set out a “Flat Line” bait or two, allowing our charter guests to have the opportunity of catching a fast swimming pelagic species as well! Included are king mackerel, cobia, dolphin, barracuda, amberjack, and more!
The six-passenger fishing charters for a 4-hour excursion include all bait, tackle, license, cleaning of your catch, boxed lunch, water, and a cooler on board to BYOB.
