We have incurred additional expenses in preparing for this year’s Kings Head Regatta, and will be soliciting donations for the parking of spectator vehicles only.  There will be no fee for the parking of  boat trailers, or top-carried cars.  Please advise your team, and club members who are planning to arrive in their own vehicles.  Parking at our site is always a premium and car pooling is always a good idea.  Thanks for your cooperation.
