2016 Regatta Schedule
HEAT SHEETS AND PHOTO LINE-UPS
Heat Sheets and Photo-lineups are generally posted by the evening before regattas on both the Madison Crew Facebook Group and our website on the members-only portion of the site.
VASRA has set up several Twitter sites to assist our parents, rowers, boosters, and coaches.
Check out VASRAResults if you are interested in getting race results directly from the finish line. Additionally if you want to know the status of parking at Sandy Run before you arrive at the park check out VASRAParking.
PARKING AT SANDY RUN.
VASRA's parking fee is $15 per car this year. You can park in the Sandy Run lots and pay a fee, or avail yourself of the free shuttle buses that JMHS has arranged jointly with several other schools. The shuttle departs Silver Brook Elementary School (9350 Crosspointe Drive, Fairfax Station, Virginia, 22039), beginning at 7 a.m. There are two buses, making the loop at at 15 minute intervals, on the four quarters of the hour. Between 11:30 and 1:30 the drivers will be taking lunch (one at a time), so during that time the buses will run on a 30 minute interval instead of a 15 minute interval. Also, during the high-volume traffic time of early morning, when rowers are being dropped off at the Sandy Run parking lots, it can take the drivers more time to make the round trip back to Silverbrook, so please plan accordingly. The last bus will leave Sandy Run an hour after the last race is run.
