Dear all,

The time has come for Umpiring Sign Up. Umpiring is a great way to get involved in the racing and you get the chance to be right at the centre of the action - either by cycling along with the crews or acting as a static umpire along the course. 

As a 'thank you' for your time, all umpires are offered a free dinner (including drinks) at a pub the week after Bumps. Furthermore, everyone who volunteers for umpiring before Monday 4th June will count towards their college's marshal allocation (if you sign up after this, please drop me an email!).

You don't need to have umpired before. There will be a meeting for all umpires ahead of racing where we explain everything and all new umpires are paired with a 'senior' one during racing. 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 two divisions clear before your race and one after to allow you to get to and from the boathouses. The division times are available here: http://www.cucbc.org/mays/times <http://www.cucbc.org/mays/times>

The umpires briefing will be on Sunday 10th March, likely at 17:30 in Emmanuel College’s Lecture Theatre, but I’ll confirm that nearer the time. It'll last about half an hour, and I’ll endeavour to distribute a first draft of the umpiring rota before the meeting.

You can sign up here: http://www.cucbc.org/mays/umpires/signup <http://www.cucbc.org/mays/umpires/signup>

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at conor at cucbc.org <mailto:conor at cucbc.org>

Many thanks,
