The BC Summer Games Rowing venue will be at Art Mann Park on Quamichan Lake in Duncan, BC. Located at the end of Indian Road, Art Mann park is a quick 5 min drive after you turn off Highway 1. As you drive towards the lake on Indian Road you will see a large park and pavilion on your left-hand side.
A Nutrition Station will be set up with additional snacks to supplement the meals for the competing athletes. Parents are requested to make their own food arrangements while visiting the regatta site.
There will be a food truck on site as well as a water bottle fill-station. Remember to bring your own water bottle!
If you would like to pick up your child from the Games, you can do so after the Closing Ceremony from the departure area. They will drop off their luggage in the departure area prior to the ceremonies. Athletes who will depart with their families instead of on the BC Games-arranged bus must complete a sign-out form in advance, available from Provincial Coach Rob Richards at the regatta site.
