Early Morning Marshals - Lent 2014

The new Early Morning 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 - Marshal 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.
