Finish Line Tent Spaces - The regatta has changed its allocation policy for the prime finish line tent areas.  Reservations for these limited spaces will be taken in advance for a fee of $50.  It is still necessary to restrict access for vehicles to 6:45am until 7:30am only.  Equipment must be offloaded and tow vehicles and trailers must be immediately moved to designated parking areas.  Questions to: khrr_committee@uppermerionboatclub.com

If your team would like to reserve one of the finish line area spaces, please register for a space on the event page, just as if it were another race.  It is event number 00.

Boat Trailers - for those schools / clubs bringing trailers to the regatta, please contact Ed at edjkelly9@gmail.com so that we can coordinate trailer spaces.  As in the past, these will be on a first to arrive first serve basis, with no reservations or guarantees of a certain location.
