Captains' Metting Michaelmas 2014

The start of term captains' meeting is scheduled for 5pm on Sunday 12th October in King's College in the Audit Room. Directions will be in place from the porters lodge.

Early Morning Marshals

The new Early Moring marshals rota for this term has now been updated.

In accordance with Rule 34, the College clubs are required to provide marshals to enforce the early morning noise and traffic restrictions.

Marshals should arrive at their station promptly at lighting down and remain in position until 08:30. All of the equipment (bibs, clipboards, record sheets) can be found on the balcony of St Catharine's College Boathouse. Marshals should read the instructions on the website before arriving for duty - Marshals Instructions

Please check the rota very carefully for your club's slots. Clubs will be fined for failing to provide competent marshals.

If you have any queries about marshaling, or if marshals experience problems while on duty (lost equipment or unforeseen circumstances), please do not hesitate to contact the Executive Committee (committee@cucbc.org).

Handover of CUCBC Email Accounts

Just a reminder to all previous captains to hand over access to your club's CUCBC email account to the new officers ahead of the start of term.

If you are having any trouble accessing your accounts please contact Dr Dan Wilkins (webmaster@cucbc.org) to arrange a password reset.
