Along with the excitement of hosting a prestigious National Championships like this, Visit Rochester and ROC Sports rely on community support to help make it happen. One area of our community that has been extremely supportive of the upcoming NCRHA Championships is our restaurant community. I’m excited to share that we have eight restaurants, serving a variety of different food options, who are offering exclusive group meal and dining options. You can view these offers and more information on each restaurant in the dining guide, click here. We encourage you to consider these restaurants/caterers when choosing your eating options throughout the week.
We know that your focus will be on winning the Championship, but if you do find yourselves having some downtime, there is plenty to see and do throughout Rochester. We are hopeful that you will be able to take advantage of our many entertainment options: bit.ly/NCRHAChamp
