Friday, May 10th – Heats for Men’s Youth 2nd 4+ (race ~ 6:00p, arrival ~4:00p)
Saturday, May 11th – all Varsity, Junior Varsity and Novice crews
This is the same venue as our earlier regatta, Mercer Sprints. For novice and junior varsity crews this will be the last regatta of the season. Varsity squads will be competing for a chance to qualify for Nationals in Oak Ridge, TN, June 7-9. Top 3 finishes in the Varsity final events qualify.
A check of the weather shows rain all day with a chance of thunderstorms, mid-70s. Let’s hope the meteorologists are wrong! Make sure you bring rain gear and bundle up in layers and bring your blankets to keep athletes and spectators warm during the chilly morning hours.
For anyone who has tents (including ones that you may use for camping), please bring them for the athletes. It will keep them out of the elements and ready to race.

Also, please bring a 6- or 8-pack of water or sports drink, as well. We also encourage you to add your own food suggestions.
