CS Club built the Computer Science and Engineering section of the Engineering department's picnic day float many years ago. It consisted of a paperclip and a penguin inside a small boxing ring, a wacky joke regarding the Microsoft/Linux rivalry. The club's picnic day efforts also used to included a "Street Smarts" game show (whatever that was), but nowadays cool projects are shown off. In Picnic day 2011 for example, the popular iPhone app UCD Mobile was shown off.

I agree with ct here, but would hate to get a ChrisMcKenzie vs. Computer Science Club going, because that sounds like an awful waste of my time. And shame on you for putting cts comment under editorial review. —ChristopherMcKenzie

2006-05-01 19:18:31   Would I be correct in saying that current students may need to get over the past? CS Clubs can be quite beneficial, and I am aware with the difficulty in managing one. —JustinCummins

2007-07-28 17:53:21   so there isn't an ACM club on campus? —atwong

2008-03-21 15:42:44   I'm not affiliated with UC Davis, but interested to meet students who's interested or part of ACM ICPC. —Lego

2008-04-13 11:24:05   Contact Professor Filkov if you're interested in the ACM programming contest. I'm planning on joining next year and am planning on announcing it at the CS Club —SebastianNg

2008-08-28 09:45:07   Sebastian, thanks ... I think it's great to practice together on ACM ICPC contests. If there's a get together to discuss problems, please kindly let me know. —Lego

2008-10-18 15:59:20   Sorry... haven't checked this entry in a while, but Professor Filkov is currently reviewing with people on Friday from 3-4:30 at Kemper 1131. The contest will be in mid-November. —SebastianNg
