No tow vehicles will be allowed in the main trailer lot on Saturday 4/2 - must be parked down Kelly Drive.

**If you are a local crew, please consider arriving on Saturday AM for easy trailer parking in the Temple Boathouse parking lot.  Racing will start at 9AM to allow for Saturday AM arrivals.  



Friday 4/1 - Parking will be limited.  Buses & vans can pull into the upper entrance to the Canoe Club lot to drop athletes for practice.  Pending lot availabilty buses/vans may be asked to relocate down to the parking lot at the finish line for the duration of Friday practice after dropping athletes.   Please do not have buses or vans stop on Kelly Drive to drop athletes!

Saturday 4/2 - There will be drop zone parking on Kelly Drive next to the trailer lot for Athlete drop off.  This is a Drop Zone only and parking is prohibited.  After dropping athlete, buses must proceed down Kelly Drive past the finish line/Columbia Avenue Bridge and park on the left side of the drive.

Team buses are not permitted to idle along the Kelly Drive.  After dropping teams at the trailer lot near the Canoe Club, they should proceed down Kelly Drive to the Three Angels for staging.  At the conclusion of racing it is best if teams plan to walk  down to their team bus fore departure. Having buses try to loop back around to the drop site at the trailer lot will require drivers to make a large loop using I-76 (not advisable given typical weekend traffic).



Spectator & team tents may be put up along the river, downstream from the trailer parking lot. No tents may be erected inside the trailer parking lot as they cannot be staked down.

There will be a marked DROP ZONE located outside the trailer lot on Saturday morning to unload. Vehicles may not be left unattended.
