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)
