Boat trailer, tent, chuck-wagon notification:
If you plan to bring a trailer, tent, or chuck-wagon to the regatta, you MUST inform the regatta committee in advance and no later than October 8th, by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, so that parking spaces can be allotted.
Most participants will park at and launch from Passaic River Rowing Association. Parking is at a premium due to renovations of playing fields in Riverside County Park. PLEASE CARPOOL and be prepared to park on side streets. NO PARKING IS PERMITTED ON RIVERSIDE AVENUE. There will be adequate parking for trailers, buses, car-tops, and chuck-wagons (with tow vehicle ONLY). For more detailed parking information, check back here.
