This Saturday's Smokey Jacob Regatta at Sandy Run Marina will be a huge race. Please allow ample time for parking and shuttling from parking lots to the grandstand trail. Keep in mind the walk time on the trail to the grandstand. Carpooling is encouraged. Anyone coming at the later arrival time will likely be sent to the overflow lot which is the 123/Ox Rd Commuter Lot just across the river in Occoquan. Parking in the regular lots is $15 per vehicle, and parking at the commuter lot is free, with a $5 fee for the shuttle bus. Parents you can drop off rowers and then exit and go to the commuter lot after drop off.
Men's 1st and 2nd and Women's 1st and 2nd coxswains must attend the first meeting at 7:00 am - arrive no later than 6:30 am.
Men's 3rd and 4th coxswains must attend the second meeting at 11:00 am - arrive by 10:00 since parking will be a nightmare at that time.
Men's and Women's 1st and 2nd boat rowers arrive by 7:30
Men's 3rd and 4th boats should arrive by 11:00
Please check with your coaches if you are unsure which boat you are in for the regatta. We have 25 rowers absent with the Disney Trip this week so boat line-ups will be different and attendance is critical. If for some reason you can not be at Saturday's regatta, please be sure the coaches know this afternoon. In case of last minute illness contact Coach Tom at email@example.com 6:30 am.
It will be a long day with a lot of heats to go before the finals in the afternoon.

Keep in mind these times can shift depending on weather, extenuating circumstances, or races that are scratched or combined.
