Subject: Lent Bumps - Umpires

With Lent Bumps a little over 3 weeks away, we're looking to find umpires
for this year's races.

Umpiring is a really fun way to get involved in the Bumps - you get to see
and be involved in the action from up close on the towpath, either cycling
along with the crews or acting as a static umpire at key points on the
course. In addition to this, you will get a free dinner, probably the week
after Bumps and umpiring will reduce the number of marshals that your club
needs to provide.

To help out, you don't need to have umpired before although we do ask that
you have rowed or coxed in at least 2 sets of Bumps in the past. There will
be a meeting for all umpires where we will explain everything and those that
have not umpired before will be paired with a 'senior' during the races.

If you would like to help out, please sign up at


indicating which divisions you are available for (the times of the divisons
are listed at http://www.cucbc.org/lents/times). 

You can both compete and umpire (although obviously don't sign up to umpire
a division you're competing in!)

If you have any questions, please get in touch.

See you at the River...
