Entries for each club must include number of boats in each event, stroke name and, if submitting more than one entry in an event, boat ranking (A,B,C etc.).  Accurate boat rankings will allow us to seed flights in order to allow for more competitive racing.

Boats will launch on the north end of the lake at the designated beach launching area. Rowers should expect to wade up to mid-thigh. The course is approximately 1380 meters long. Rowers will warm up on the west side of the lake, taking care to avoid the public swimming area. There will be 3 lines of buoys as well as a fixed starter station and boat holders at the south end of the lake. Please see attached map.  

Trailers will park in the parking lot at the north end of the lake.

Free parking is available around the lake for those who arrive early and there is a pay parking lot on the west side of the lake. However this is a public park so there may be other activities going on that day and parking could be limited. Carpooling is greatly encouraged to save space for other competitors and the public.
