Crew at Granite State 4+ Championships

 

We look forward to hosting a larger group this year for the Granite State 4+s Championship at the newly named “Kendal Riverfront Park.”  (Same site, third set of owners.)  UVRF-Lebanon Crew, Dublin, Derryfield School, Brewster Academy, Great Bay Rowing and Hollis-Brookline Crew will be racing in fours competing for the Granite State Challenge Cup team trophy as well as the Girls and Boys 1V State Championship Trophy. 

Below is a lot of information, including the schedule.  Most important of all, however, are the parking instructions!  We have two additional teams this year and unfortunately, due to re-landscaping at our parking area up top, we have ½ the spaces on site that we did last year. WHEREVER POSSIBLE, CARPOOL!.  More on parking below.

New Site Rules:  

  • YES DOGS (on leashes, and pick up after your pooch)

  • YES GRILLS!

  • NO ALCOHOL, SMOKING

  • NO SWIMMING (exception for throwing in winning coxswains)

Parking - Onsite, extremely limited. PLEASE BE KIND TO OUR PARENT VOLUNTEER PARKERS AND LISTEN TO WHAT THEY SAY AND FOLLOW THEIR DIRECTION!  When onsite parking fills we have to park a short ways away and walk - see the highlighted section below:

  • boat trailers, one team food trailer per team, handicap, & coach parking is down by the river.

  • DROP off for heavy tents/tables/coolers down by the river only as needed. Please try to be quick and efficient in your drop off and do not park there. Be careful driving up as it is a one way narrow road.

  • buses, athlete, spectator parking is up top - parking is somewhat limited, so PLEASE CARPOOL.  If the lot fills, you can drop people off, but you will be directed by the parking attendant to drive back 1/2 mile to the Richmond Middle School (RMS) and park there and walk to the site.  IF RMS parking fills, you will have to backtrack another ½ miles from the site and park at Garipay Field (directions below).

  • We strongly encourage you to carpool or at least stop at the Richmond Middle School and then consolidate to at least 4 people per car.   We don't really want to let cars park at the site that have fewer than 4 people in it.

  • UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCE CAN YOU PARK ALONG LYME ROAD/ROUTE 10 - you will be ticketed and towed and we may lose our ability to get an outdoor activity permit for these events.  Thank you for your cooperation!
