NO FOOD tents for crews and NO crews are allowed inside the infield of the baseball diamond.

You MUST NOT consume valid trailer space OR boat rigging space for food - if you inhibit another crew from placing a trailer or rigging boats you and your parents will be moving your tents out of the way.

There is an out field fence of the ball diamond that parallels the foot path --- this is a good place to put food tents as well as along the back side of the left field (3rd base side) line near the ice rink or outside the right field (1st base line).

Do NOT park trailers or food near the fence with the protapotties or you will have to MOVE it, 

Do NOT block the entrance to the Dock 1 docks..... this path must be left open for boats retruning after racing!

NOTE- NOVICE boys and girls are racing on SUNDAY PM on a shortened cousre... their races will start just south of the "S" curve and will finsih at the normal finish line.
