Welcome to Stotes week!!! For those of us that have been here before we know how crazy it can be and how much fun it is! For those of us who are new to the experience, this is the big one...Be prepared for crazy traffic both on the roads and on the path. Give yourself lots of extra time to get to the course.
We will have a normal practice schedule for Monday-Wednesday with varsity in the morning and novices in the afternoon. On Thursday we will practice on the Schuylkill after school. Each boat will go out for their row as soon as everyone from the boat arrives. Please talk to a teammate if you need a ride.
Athlete drop off: Our trailer will be in a different location this weekend. The best location for you to drop kids off is where the Kelly Drive detour begins by the Three Angels/Grant Statue.
Athletes: Arrive at the trailer 2 HOURS prior to your first race each day. Bring sunscreen, a towel or chair to sit on, water, and a healthy snack. You WILL NOT BE PERMITTED TO WALK BACK AND FORTH TO THE FOOD TENT BEFORE YOUR RACE. Also...YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO WALK AROUND AND GO SHOPPING AT THE VENDOR TENTS WHILE YOU ARE STILL RACING. You may be racing up to 3 times in 2 days. It is typically a mile + between the trailer and tent and you may not notice it but it drains your energy.
Parents: Please make sure you leave extra time to get to the race, traffic is nuts. We haven't had any problems this year but I want to remind everyone that the boat trailer is like our locker room. Please stay away...no offense. Lastly...I know it is prom on Friday. If your son or daughter has a late race I will get them out as soon as possible when they get back to land. The school has been notified that they are racing and may be a little late.
Remember...this is a fantastic experience for everyone involved. There are 962 boats entered from 189 clubs around North America. Lets have some fun!!!
