May Bumps Marquee and Boat Club Dinner

Marquee – from 12.00noon until 6.00pm, Ditton Corner

The final day of May Bumps this year falls on Saturday 15 June 2019, and it is with great pleasure that we invite all alumni to join us at the May Bumps Marquee on Ditton Meadows from 12.00 noon to 6.00pm – a great vantage point from which to watch the racing. BBQ food and beverages (including much Pimms!) will be served from midday. There is no need to purchase a ticket for the marquee, do just turn up on the day, the more the merrier!

Boat Club Dinner – from 7.00pm, Girton College

Following the day’s racing, we would also like to warmly invite you to the Boat Club Dinner at Girton College, starting with a wine reception at 7.30pm in the Stanley Library, and followed by a three-course meal in the Great Hall. This invitation extends to all rowers, and we are particularly keen to reunite crews of 1979, 1989, 1999 and 2009. At £50 a ticket, we very much hope you will take the opportunity to join us and make merry with your crew mates at BCD once more.

Alternatively, we invite you to join The Infidel Boat Club (TIBC) for Girton alumni (with a membership fee of £25 per year) and pay the Infidel ticket price of £45.

To book please email Jan at with your name, and the name of a guest should you be attending together, as soon as possible but before the 2 June 2019. Please include any dietary requirements, your crew and the year in which you graduated. Payment can be made by bank transfer to the account below. Please use the reference: BCD-SURNAME. Do feel free to circulate this information to any crew mates that may not have received our invitation, as our crew lists may be incomplete.
