Dear Captains,

Thank you very much for the numerous replies (50 or so emails this
afternoon from Captains, alumni, committee members, etc.) which I have
received over the past few hours. I apologize if I haven't been able to
address them personally.

Of these, the following clubs agreed that I should resume preparation for
the Lent Bumps based on its current format and that it is acceptable for
the requested Captains' meeting to be held in early March to discuss what
the number of divisions (and the procedure for deciding this) ought to be:
Caius, King's, LMBC, Queens', Robinson, Wolfson
(This is also the solution which the Senior Umpires and I are in favour of)

The following clubs asked for the Captains' meeting to be held prior to the
Bumps and to further discuss how the races should be organised this year:
Christ's, Downing, Emmanuel, Pembroke

Finally, though the following clubs kindly got in touch with me, I did not
fully understand their position:
Clare Hall, First and Third

I would be glad if a few more clubs could share their views on this matter
with me. Again, please understand that this situation is becoming
increasingly hard to manage (I am still receiving incident reports and
other such things, but I am lacking in time to address them at the moment).
A prompt settlement of this would be good.

Finally, I would really like to thank all of the people who have offered
their help.

In that vein, in my limited experience as CUCBC Hon. Sec. one of the
factors which has compounded difficulties in running these races has been
the repeated lack of consideration for deadlines (e.g. for CUCBC bills
payment, Uni IV entry, Uni IV time availability, Bumps entry, eligibility
concerns). Similarly, I was rather concerned by the low number of marshals
turning up for Uni IVs (despite my numerous, numerous emails) and I would
be very grateful if it could be ensured that this will not happen again for
the Lent Bumps. It would therefore be wonderful if people could consider
signing up to umpire: http://www.cucbc.org/node/421.

Best regards,
     Wilf. Genest
     CUCBC Hon. Sec.
