**Captains - please forward to members of your club who may be interested in

Many thanks to all those who have signed up to umpire the Lent Bumps
(1st-5th March).

We are still looking for a few more people to help out - particularly on the
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. It is important that we have a full
compliment of Umpires to ensure that the races run smoothly.

Please do consider helping out. 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 divisions
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.
