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 the Cambridge Blue pub, the week after bumps. Those who
volunteer to umpire also count towards their college's marshal allocation.

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
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:

The umpires briefing will be during the weekend of the 4th / 5th June and
should last about half an hour. The exact time and location will be
confirmed nearer the time, 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

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

Many thanks for helping to make the Bumps possible, and best of luck with
exams and training,
