Dear All,

Attached is this term's 12-outing declaration form for the Lent Bumps. 
Please note the following:

  * One form per club please - not separate submissions per crew or for
    men's/women's sections.
  * This is the first term that the modified Rule 18a is in force -
    rather than 10 outings, the new requirement is 12 outings, where
    weekday sessions after 9am count as 1.5 towards the total.
  * Races count as 1 outing, irrespective of the time of day (i.e.
    Robinson Head is not 1.5). The Getting-on-Race may count towards the
    total for those crews entered.
  * Please take a common sense view when it comes to subs/crew
    shuffling. In particular, each member should ordinarily have
    undertaken at least 8 outings with the crew (though we're flexible
    and reasonable when it comes to putting experienced subs in at the
    last minute). Please contact me to discuss if you think it
    necessary, especially in the case of coxes.
  * Note also Rule 18b, that you may not have more than 2 Lent-term
    novices in any crew.
  * I'd appreciate it if in your return you could indicate which of your
    crews have been training regularly on weekdays after 9am. This is
    simply a straw poll to see how many crews are making use of this
    quiet time.
  * As usual, a random sample of 6 clubs will be asked to submit copies
    of their outing logs for the term. These may be in any format
    convenient, but please ensure that you send me a log of outings
    actually undertaken, not a Google Docs outing planner that has not
    been updated to reflect outings missed due to flags etc.
  * If you have crews entered that have not managed 12 outings, they
    will still be welcome to race for time only in the GoR (but will not
    be eligible for the 50% non-qualifier's refund).
  * If you think you have a good excuse for not having made the
    12-outing requirement by the deadline, feel free to plead your case
    with me before scratching.

Forms are to be returned to me by the end of Wednesday 17 February.

Any questions, please ask.
