Sunday Parking – Please read carefully

Before 10am:

SUNDAY — HOTO’s Sunday parking and drop off situation is greatly different from Saturday’s. This information immediately below pertains to drop-offs; please read the rest of the content for more information about the other policies.

DROP-OFFs ONLY: You may drop off your coxswain, rower or spectator at the Van Thompson lot (please see the map) before 10am. From the Van Thompson lot, OBC has arranged for a regularly running intra-park shuttle to take your dropped-off person to the regatta site about a mile away. If you would like to personally drive farther than Van Thompson, without the team pass your person’s team has been granted, you will be charged $20 for parking… BUT… If you drop off your person closer to the event site and return to Van Thompson checkpoint and leave the park to go on to Vulcan (further south off Ox Road by about 3 miles) you will be refunded your $20 parking fee. Please explain your situation to the parking attendant at Van Thompson and they will be able to assist you.
