Dear all,

Thanks to everyone who has signed up already. Unfortunately though, we're
still in need of quite a lot more umpires for the Lent Bumps. Without
Umpires, the Bumps simply can't go ahead safely, so please forward this
message onto anyone who has Bumps experience (two sets minimum please),
especially those who aren't competing this term.

As added motivation, here's the signups by college so far (along with a
reminder that colleges with fewer or no umpires will receive a lot more
marshaling slots, and whilst umpiring slots are based on when you're free
and get the best view of the action, marshaling slots are randomly
assigned, often in less desirable locations, and immovable):

Caius 2
Churchill 2
Darwin 2
Emmanuel 4
First & Third 3
Fitzwilliam 1
Hughes Hall 1
King's 1
Lady Margaret 1
Murray Edwards 2
Newnham 4
No College 1
Pembroke 4
Queens' 3
Selwyn 1
Sidney Sussex 5
St Catharine's 3
Wolfson 2

Many thanks,
