All 4 teams are starting off the season this Saturday at the Steve Neczypor regatta in Cherry Hill/Camden, NJ. Racing is ONLY on Saturday, April 6 from 8:30 am until around 4:30 pm. Travel roster, lineups, and race information (including race times, arrival times, lanes, and more!) can all be found HERE:
Coaches will also be providing the rowers with all necessary information, so please check with your child about details. They will know the answers if they have been listening.
Transportation is not provided for this regatta, so all rowers must find their own ride to this race. The location where your athletes should be dropped off is the corner of Cuthbert and North Park Boulevard in Cherry Hill, NJ (you can probably use 510 Park Blvd, Cherry Hill, NJ 08002 as a GPS address, which is pretty close to where the trailer will be parked). Athletes should bring their own food and plenty of gear/clothing for a full day at the course, especially if they are racing more than once.
For parents hoping to watch the racing, this is a great venue to do so! The parent coordinators have arranged for the Mercer tent and tables to be near the finish line for viewing. There is a potluck signup link to volunteer to bring food for athletes and spectators – please volunteer to bring something if possible! We are hoping to make this a low waste event, so please bring reusable coffee mugs and water bottles to fill up!
Also, as a reminder, please be sure to pay the Trip Fee for the race. It is $27 and you can pay by check made out to PNRA (drop off with your coach or with Hilary in the office) or via Regatta Central via this link. If your son or daughter is NOT racing, you do not need to pay the trip fee.
Please reach out to your coach or to Hilary (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.
