May Bumps Party 2000

The Coburn & Mulligan Garden Warming Party to watch 'Bumps and Carnage' was held on 17 June 2000. The fourth and final day of the May Bumps saw a spectacular day of racing in bright sunshine.  Caius College achieved the singular achievement of going Head of the River in both womens and mens races.

We had a motley crew of party attendees - were you there? How many people do you know on this photograph? How many of them have hats? Compare this with the same scene in 1910 (a lot more headwear).
