Final call for Umpires for the Lents! We're doing well so far, but 10 more people would make the rota a lot nicer, and mean everyone's wishes can be accommodated a bit better - so if you've signed up already, thanks very much, but encourage your friends, fellow rowers, ex-coxes etc. :)
As added motivation, here's the current sign ups by college:
First & Third 5
Hughes Hall 2
Lady Margaret 5
Murray Edwards 2
Sidney Sussex 7
St Catharine's 5
St Edmunds 2
Trinity Hall 1
Anyone who signs up by midnight tonight (Sunday 19th) will be included against their college's marshalling allocation, so if your college isn't on that list, or has a low number, nows the time to get encouraging people - umpiring is organised around the umpires availability, whereas marshalling slots are not!
Thanks again to everyone who's signed up so far - the Bumps couldn't happen without you!

However, we do ask that you have rowed or coxed in at least 2 sets of bumps before so that you understand how the races work.
> > Please remember that you can both compete and umpire. We suggest you leave 2 divisions clear before your race and 1 after to allow you to get to and from the boathouses. The division times are available here: http://www.cucbc.org/lents/times
