Dear Coaches,

With Spring calendars filling up quickly, the Metropolitan Youth Speed Order (MYSO) Regatta would like to extend an invitation and welcome you to join us on Saturday, April,14th for a youth race on the Passaic River. MYSO is hosted by the Metropolitan Rowing Club, located in Kearny NJ, and is a USRowing® registered regatta.  This is a unique opportunity to race a 1500m head race and time trial style course without any semis or finals commitment.  MYSO is open to both scholastic and club youth programs from the metropolitan area. 

The regatta is supported by USRowing Referees and HereNow Timing.  We welcome 8+, 4x, 4+, 2x and 1x, and 7th 8th grades to race down the Passaic. 

Any questions can be directed at myso.regatta@gmail.com.  We hope to see you there!

Many thanks in advance and best of luck to you all this season!

Sincerely,

MYSO Regatta Organizing Committee

 

Important Action REQUIRED for Cooking in the Park

3 permit applications are required for the MYSO Regatta by the local fire department regarding tents and cooking in the park.  They can be found by clicking HERE. The Fire Department will be WAIVING the fee involved with these permits.  However, all of the schools and/or teams that will be participating in the regatta must have the applicable permits completed and turned in to be allowed to cook/have a tent.   Teams that do not have a permit and are found cooking will be in violation of not having a permit and will be shut down and not allowed to cook at the event. NO new permits will be issued the day of the event so it is very important that the applications are returned ASAP.

The Permits are as followed:

1. Propane Cooking Permit - This Permit is for anyone who will be cooking at the event using a Propane Tank regardless of the size. (NOTE: ABSOLUTELY NO COOKING WILL BE ALLOWED UNDER ANY TENTS AND FIRE EXTINGUISHER MUST BE PRESENT & VALID/NOT EXPIRED)

2. Open Flame Cooking - This Permit is for anyone who will be cooking at the event using Charcoal and/or Wood. (NOTE: ABSOLUTELY NO COOKING WILL BE ALLOWED UNDER ANY TENTS AND FIRE EXTINGUISHER MUST BE PRESENT & VALID/NOT EXPIRED)

3. Use of a Tent and/or Canopy - This Permit is ONLY for anyone who will be using any tent that is 30' Long in any direction to include multiple tents tied together that reach a length of 30'. PERMITS ARE NOT NEEDED FOR SINGLE 10'x10' POP UP TENTS THAT ARE NOT TIED TOGETHER. (NOTE: ABSOLUTELY NO COOKING WILL BE ALLOWED UNDER ANY TENTS AND FIRE EXTINGUISHER MUST BE PRESENT & VALID/NOT EXPIRED)
