Important Carpooling Information
All rowers should be at the regatta site in Philadelphia for 3pm!
If you are driving a carpool of rowers you are responsible for getting rowers to the regatta site, then to the hotel, then to the team dinner and back to the hotel, and on Sunday morning taking your carpool from the hotel to the regatta site. This applies even if you are not staying at the team hotel. We need to ensure that all of the 80+ rowers on our team get to where they need to be!
If your rower is carpooling with another family you must make contact with them to arrange pick-up and drop-off details, and make sure your rower has cash for any food on the road, or other incidentals.
