Dear Captains

I find myself in the unfortunate situation of having to write this email
following events that unfolded yesterday.

Yesterday we discovered that a club competing completely disregarded a
decision made by CUCBC and used an illegal crew member in the Getting-on
Race with full knowledge that this was not permitted. They had been in
discussions with us about this crew member and we had been incredibly clear
in our decision.

To make matters far worse their club officers tried to lie and cover up
that this breach of the rules had taken place. However we had significant
photographic evidence available, which allowed us to discover this.

It is for these actions of breaking the rules and most importantly
attempting to conceal this fact, that the crew in question has been
disqualified from racing this week. These actions very nearly caused their
entire club to be disqualified from racing in the Lents.

This is a warning to you all that unsporting behaviour and dishonesty* will
not be tolerated* in the slightest by CUCBC and the Chief Umpires for this
Bumps and any future Bumps. The penalties for false declarations will be
swift and severe no matter what stage of the week's racing we are at.
