Is there food available at the regattas, or will my kids need to bring a lunch with them every Saturday?

Food and water are provided on site and at the hotel for rowers who are headed to these competitions (the most competitive boats will go to Stotes and the boats that qualify during States will go to Nationals) Coaches/MCC Board will communicate those boats ASAP. We have food tents with catering/grilling for these away regattas and chaperones often take shifts at the tent however the food tent folks will communicate any additional volunteer needs as soon as they know what boats are headed to each competition. Food is provided at the hotel but lunches are usually packed for the ride to the venue on Thursday and then the bus stops for a dinner on the ride home from the venue. The rowers travel midday on Thursday and rig and warm up on the course that afternoon. We often have dinner provided for them at the tent that evening and then they board the bus to check in to the hotel and head to bed. They race on Friday in time trials in order to qualify for more races on Friday afternoon and/or on Saturday. It’s possible that a boat won’t make it out of time trials on Friday. If so, they travel to and from the course with the team and have more free time during the day on Saturday until the bus is loaded and they are headed home. All rowers invited to Stotes will be getting emails in the next couple of weeks (usually after the Charlie Butt Regatta). Rowers headed to nationals will know if their boat qualifies after States and an email will be sent with more specifics from the board ASAP. Let us know if you have any more questions.
