Members of the Georgia Tech community. Today an article was released by the Institute's student newspaper, The Technique, that discusses the short term future of the Ramblin' Reck and it's garage. In approximately 2 years, the the building that is attached to the garage will be under renovations and the Rambln' Reck will have to move to a newer (and hopefully better) location. Currently, there is no new garage site planned. While the Ramblin' Reck Club is currently going through the necessary processes to make the administration understand the need for a new permanent garage, the process is slow with very little progress.
So, why is it so important that the Tech community knows about this now? It's because the Institute is in the middle of a long-term plan that is projected out at least 5-7 years in the future. With the club just now being notified about a needed move in 2 years, this puts the Ramblin' Reck behind the 8-ball already. Also, please note that the club is willing to finance a move and is not simply looking for a handout but rather the cooperation from the administration to keep the Ramblin' Reck on campus as it has always been since Dean Dull brought the Reck to campus in 1961.
While the Reck has an extremely close relationship with the Bird, Dane, and myself, it is still a symbol and an icon of the Institute and represents all Georgia Tech students, alumni and fans. We encourage all of you to be vocal about the Reck receiving a proper, respectable, and permanent garage that a symbol of the Institute so deserves.
