help coordinate if everyone wants to get (or pick up) lunch together. Otherwise, it is up to the
rowers and their families to provide food, snacks, water for their student athletes.

Fees: There are no fees required to pay to HHSRC associated with this regatta. There may be a fee for
parking. Check back here for potential parking updates.

Weather: Since this is an indoor (large gym) erg regatta, the only thing the weather can affect is your drive
over and back. Look at your favorite weather app to check if rain/cold conditions are possible.
