Chartered buses will transport athletes to the race venue on Sunday, April 27. Athletes must arrive at the boathouse promptly at 3:45 for a 4:00 am departure. DO NOT BE LATE, the buses will not wait! The buses will NOT stop on the way to the race course. Your athlete should bring food/drink for the bus ride. Parent volunteers will make food available as soon as they can at the parent tent. Athletes are expected to return to Norwalk on the bus. Exceptions are rare, and must be cleared by your coach. The buses WILL stop at a rest area on the NJ Turnpike on the way home. Please send sufficient funds for your athlete to purchase food/drink at the food court. Anticipate athletes to return to the boathouse at approximately 9:00 pm. As always, phone calls will be made to parents when the bus is 30 minutes from Norwalk. Please make sure you are at the boathouse when the buses return so chaperones do not have to wait.
Lineups will be released by coaches, and can be changed at the coaches’ discretion.
See you at Cooper River!
