Dear Parents and Athletes,
The Midwest Scholastic Championship Regatta will be taking place this weekend. This is one of the highlights of the season! It is a two day regatta, taking place Saturday and Sunday. Saturday consists of qualifying heats and Sunday will be the finals. The event is at Dillon Lake State Park and the address is 5265 Dillon Hills Drive Nashport, Ohio 43830. Information regarding events and heats can be found on www.regattacentral.com.
The venue for this regatta is very nice with good viewing, but is quite a distance from any town. It is recommended that you pack food for your family as the food tent is reserved for athletes.
Currently, showers are in the forecast for Friday. In years past, rain has caused this venue to become VERY MUDDY, therefore mud boots and rain gear (we know how the forecast can change!) are highly recommended for athletes and families!
Athletes: You must be at the Freshman center by 6:45 a.m on Friday. The bus/van leaves at 7:00 a.m. All students have already been excused from classes–there is no need to call. Along with the bus, Coach Tucker will be driving a 15 passenger van.
Athletes will return late Sunday night and for those who will need to be picked up from the Freshman Center, coaches will have kids text when they are 30 minutes away from school.
A sign up genius link for the weekend is below–parents, PLEASE sign up for shifts this weekend as there is A LOT of help that is needed in order to make this event go as smoothly as possible for our athletes.
New to this sign up genius, (because regatta times can change so much, which can shift the tent times) we are asking that you include your cell phone number with your sign up. This way a committee member can reach you if the times shift by a lot. Your number can only be seen by the administrators of the sign up genius site-it won’t be seen by the general public.
If you are not attending this regatta but would like to donate food, Jeannie’s contact info is on the sign up genius and food can be dropped off at her house Thursday night.
Team Banquet: If you have not done so, mark your calendars for the team banquet Tuesday, May 30th at 7:00 p.m.
Looking Ahead: Coaches are working on Canada details and they will be sent out early next week. You will know by then as well if your athlete will be attending this regatta. Parents, in order to cross the border, you will need either a passport or enhanced drivers license. If you are planning on attending with your athlete and do not have either of those, you will need to obtain ASAP
Thanks and good luck to all of our athletes this weekend! Go Rams!!
