[CUCBC Captains] Lent Bumps 2013 Coxes' Briefing

**Captains please pass this on to anyone who may be interested in umpiring**
We are still in need of umpires to run Lent Bumps in just over a week's
We currently only have about half of the necessary people signed up to run
the races so if you've been considering umpiring please sign up asap here:
You don't need to have umpired before but we do ask that you have competed
in bumps at least twice before so you know what is going on.
I will shortly be putting together the marshals rota for bumps and if
people sign up before that is ready your umpiring availability will count
towards your college's marshal quota.
If you wait until after this to sign up then it will not count.
Please remember we cannot run bumps without people signing up to umpire so
it is very important that we get people for all the jobs.

PS: There may also be cake for umpires!
