Team Set Up
Team Set Up: Teams may begin setting up equipment in the park beginning at 12:00 pm on Thursday.
Teams will select boat and tent space when on site – space is not being marked out or reserved by the regatta organizers. There is plenty of space for all, but please keep your boat and team tent areas compact.
Oar Corral: The “Oar Corral” for temporary storage of oars during launching is located next to the beach, near the control commission. Crews should not leave oars on the beach after landing.
Volunteering at the Regatta: Volunteering is a great way to support our masters athletes! Please share the volunteer sign up with your club athletes and supporters. Each hour of volunteering will earn your club a donation!
Volunteer Sign Up: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0e4eaca92fab9-2022 or contact Molly Evjen at [email protected]
Park Security: Security will be provided at the park from 6:00 pm to 6:00 am on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings. However, PVRA, USRowing, and regatta organizers will not be held responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged equipment. At the end of each day, be sure that food is stored away (critters come out at night!) and that tool boxes and valuables are locked up and stored out of the open.
Trash & Dumpsters: Please be sure to comb your team tent and boat areas for trash at the end of each day of the regatta, and deliver your trash to the large dumpster in the parking lot (please do not overflow the small dumpsters in the park). Teams that fail to clean up around their team tent and boat storage area will be assessed a park fine for not doing so.
Water: All available water spigots are potable. There is a water spigot available at the North Eagle Shelter and at the Food Vendor Area. Please be aware that, due to power outages or contamination, water might not be available at the venue. We suggest that you bring enough water for yourself and your team in case we experience water issues at the park.
Pets: NO DOGS ARE ALLOWED IN THE PARK. From April through October, dogs are forbidden in the area of Vancouver Lake Park where we hold regatta for public health & safety reasons. Regatta participants who violate this rule jeopardize future rowing events at the park. Please do not bring your dog or you will be asked to leave.
Tents: Tent stakes are prohibited to use in the park. If renting a tent you must ensure the company will NOT use stakes.
Vehicle Paths: Please drive only on marked roads. The Park STRICTLY PROHIBITS driving on the grass or the beach for ANY reason. All equipment must be carried from the parking lot – hand trucks are available to borrow at the Volunteer Tent.
Bus Unloading/Loading: Buses are not allowed to enter the parking lot. Buses dropping off or picking up athletes should do so on the main road in the designated locations. Buses will also be allowed to park in the “Bus Parking Only” areas. Please obey the posted signage.
RV Parking and Camping: All RVs must park in the overflow lot. Overnight camping in the park is strictly PROHIBTED, either in tents or RVs. Please do not contact the city or county to obtain special use permits. Park employees will patrol the park at night and anyone found camping or staying in an RV overnight will be asked to leave.
Irrigation: The Park maintains a regular irrigation schedule for all grass areas. The sprinklers may be turned on any evening during the regatta. Put away anything that might be damaged by getting wet.
Health & Safety Guidelines
First Aid: All organizations are encouraged to provide first aid kits for their athletes, taking into consideration the special needs of their athletes. Please carry your emergency medical consent forms with you. Medical assistance will be available at the first aid tent, near the volunteer tent, in the vendor area.
Hygiene: Athletes, coaches, officials and any other paid or volunteer staff must practice good hygiene including washing their hands frequently and covering their sneezes and coughs. Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds before and after activity, especially after touching shared objects or blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains 60-95% alcohol content. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they are dry. Athletes should not share water bottles, uniforms, or towels.. Teams should provide handwashing or hand sanitizing stations in their team areas.
Cleaning: Clean high touch surfaces and disinfect shared equipment before and after each use. Restrooms will be cleaned and disinfected regularly.
