Important Practice Info for 12/13-12/17

12/13/2015 1:27 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)
This week is Orange County Park's Light Up the Wild at Moss Park!  We encourage all members to see this incredible driving light tour at Moss Park ($5/car)

However, due to the popularity of this event, please be prepared for increased traffic this week.

ARRIVE AT THE PARK BY 5:30 PM

Light Up the Wild begins at 6:30 p.m.  Gates will close for this event at 6 p.m.  ALL MEMBERS need to be in the park by 5:30 p.m. in order to avoid (hopefully) being in the line for Light Up the Wild.

HS ROWERS without rides in the park WILL BE DRIVEN TO SPRING OF LIFE CHURCH

If you are not able to get in the park BEFORE the gates close or BEFORE the line starts, parent volunteers or coaches will drive your rower to the Spring of Life Methodist Church (417 and Moss Park Rd) at the conclusion of practice (est arrival 6:30). 

Please make sure you and your rower have their phones to communicate if they will be brought to the church

Please be signed up on Text alert at http://www.soracrew.com/texts

If you are available to be a parent driver for church dropoff, please let coach Katie know at the end of practice on whichever day you can drive.

MS ROWERS PLEASE BE ON TIME!!!

If you are late to practice this week (5:30), you will most likely get stuck in Light of the Wild Traffic.

If at all possible, we encourage all parents dropping off middle school rowers to stay in the park.

If you are returning at the conclusion of practice, parents please CLEARLY COMMUNICATE that you are picking up your rower (we encourage a right blinker and to have your rowing pass visible) while you are making your way to the park and through the gate. Please understand this is a stressful week for all park employees and be patient!  

YOUR PARK PASS DOES NOT INCLUDE ACCESS TO LIGHT UP THE WILD.

We strongly encourage all members to experience this event.  HOWEVER, your park pass DOES NOT include entry to Light up the Wild.  The cost is $5 per car and you must enter through the line (you can not take a left to start your tour).

Members leaving the park who wish to see Light up the Wild:

  1. Leave Moss Park
  2. When safe, make a U Turn and join the line for Light up the Wild
  3. Pay your $5 at the gate house
  4. ENJOY!

Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation through this week.
