Dear All,

I have yet to receive 12-outing declarations forms from the following clubs:

Trinity Hall

Note that the deadline for declarations is tonight.

I have yet to receive the requested outing logs from the following:

St Edmunds
Trinity Hall

Note that the deadline for outing logs is Monday. Current logs are fine, 
provided that you also indicate scheduled outings for any crew not yet 
on 12 outings.

I look forward to the usual flurry of panicked and apologetic emails...
