ALSO SEE NEWS section for TENT info for parents and crews!!!

The best thing to do is have parents take 390 towards airport, take the Scotsville exit,

make a left, proceed to Elmwood Ave., Genesee St and Scottville Rd traffic light.

Turn right on to Elmwood...drop rowers off at entrance to gwc WITHOUT entering the GWC.  Then proceed straightt to return home, or go over the bridge to Moore Road. Turn into Monroe County park meander in and turn right into the lot for the rotunda and have the kids walk over the footbridge.

Another good other option is to go to the Scottsville exit turn left and then turn right into Vixette St or Mineola St and drop kids at tennis courts and they can walk the bike path to the GWC.

Google maps may help clarify

 

Buses - where we can we will park the first buses to the WEST of the baseball diamond - the later you come the more likely your bus will have to park youir bus across from the ice rink on Genesee River Trail, maybe a 5-7 mins walk. You can dump gear and rowers at the venue then go and park.

College Parents on Saturday and High School parent/Crew tents will be NOT be allowed Saturday or Sunday INSIDE the Baseball infield Tents can be set up on the OUTSIDE of the outfield fence along hte footpath, along the 3rd base foul line.  If a tent for food inhibits crew trailers next to you you WILL BE TOLD to move it. Be consider of space, it is at a premium and ROWING boats getting rigged and staged is the priority,

High School coaches - BEST to bring trailers at 4 pm on Saturday giving the colleges time to exit - we will again have 24 hour security and lights on all night
