Captains - please forward to your clubs!

Hi all,

So I've had quite a few replies about umpiring for Lent Bumps in the last
few weeks and it's a now very swiftly diminishing two and a half weeks to
the first cannon.  However, we still need some more of you to volunteer and
keep it running seamlessly so please email me now if you can umpire even
only one race per day!  As long as you've rowed or coxed in at least one set
of bumps, then that's the only requirement.  If cycling is a problem then we
can always find a static position for you.  Send me an e-mail with your name
and college, availability and say whether or not you've umpired before.
I'll take the opportunity again to point out that a large number of the
umpires also row/cox themselves and I'll ensure that you have plenty of time
to get back to/from your boathouse so your racing isn't affected.  Look at
it as a warmup cycle!  Remember that not only will you get a free meal and
drink at the end of it all, you will also reduce the number of marshall
slots your college will have to provide.  Plus a warm fuzzy feeling inside.

The division times are given at:


Ideally you'll want to be reporting to the control desk by the Penny Ferry
30 minutes before your divisions start so you can collect equipment from the
umpires of the previous division, ask questions, cycle down to the start,
ponce around etc, so factor this in when deciding for which divisions you
will be available.  We'll have a short meeting for all umpires just before
the Lents so everyone knows in advance and in detail what they will be

While I'm here, the following all said they would umpire but had to check on
academic/other commitments.  Could these people please confirm their

Hope to hear from lots of you...
