Regatta Prep - It takes a village!
Regatta preparation is an all volunteer endeavor organized by our team parents. The mission is to provide food and refreshments for all the athletes, coaches and visiting family members throughout the day. There are not any vendors selling food at the regattas with the exception of the Stotesbury Cup.
Regatta prep is a huge tailgating party on the riverside!
Basic menus include healthy food and drink choices. Hot breakfasts are served along with coffee and hot chocolate for early morning arrivals. Hot lunches are provided, and snacks are available throughout the day.
We do our best to provide a menu that is appealing to all, but please bring extra snacks/food if you or your rower have specific dietary requirements.
There are many opportunities to volunteer for different jobs including tent/site set up, grilling, clean up, towing the "chuck wagon", etc.
Every team family is asked to participate in logistics support during each season, and this is all coordinated via an online signup system. Specific and detailed plans are created in the sign-up system and all team members/families receive email invitations from the system several days prior to each regatta.
