Hanover Invitational/Sleigh Cup Race Details

This Saturday May 31st is the Hanover Invitational/Sleigh Cup.

All visiting crews will boat out of the Old Chieftan/Kendall property and HHS crew will park and boat out of their new home. All food tents and the awards ceremony will be at the Old Chieftan/Kendall property. When the Hanover Crews finish their races, they will pull up to the Chieftan property and hang out with all the visiting teams and break bread together. This will allow all teams to be in one place for the awards ceremony. At the end of the day the HHS crews will row home while other teams pack up and go home. PLEASE REMEMBER THE NEW OWNER OF THIS SITE DOES NOT ALLOW GRILLS, PETS, OR SWIMMING ON THE PROPERTY! Sorry!

Please remember that there is no parking at the Chieftan. The shuttle will be running from Garipay and the Richmond parking from 10:00am-5:00pm. The HHS rowers who normally drive to practice can park at the FOHC site and all others can be dropped off by parents at the site.

If it is a nice day…Go Green and Walk to the Regatta. It is just slightly over a mile from
Garipay Field and less than a half-mile from Richmond Middle School.

Trailers and Busses to Drop of Kids:

  • Follow the directions above.
  • Continue straight through the circle.
  • The Old Chieftan Motor Inn/Kendall will be 1 mile up on your left. It now looks like a demolition zone.
  • Busses should drop off kids at the Chieftan Entrance and go back and
  • park at the Richmond school.
  • Trailers can make their way down slowly to the bottom field. It does work if you go down slowly! If you have been here in the past, the road is much better.

Food:
We have a joint food tent for this regatta. We plan to feed 500 Rowers but it always seems like we feed 1500 people. Please ask your parent groups to plan accordingly. We set up all the tents together and have the kids eat at whatever tent suits their fancy. Remember no grills!
