Coffee, tea, and snacks will be provided in the morning, with sandwiches (meat and vegetarian options) for lunch around noon. Please bring lots of water (extra snacks if you have dietary restrictions), plus a folding chair if you have one.

The plan is to spend time in Rosewall Creek discussing flow and practicing flow measurement techniques, so bring your boots and waders, or shorts and sandals if you feel like getting your feet wet!

A small stipend for travel expenses is available on an individual basis. We would like for everyone to attend that wishes to, so if cost is a barrier, please reach out to Ally for more information. Carpooling is encouraged and we can help connect people travelling from the same direction.

We are looking forward to seeing you all at the Flow Regatta!
