Fri 11th March
Like bumps but illegal and with alcohol.
Drumps involves a course of approximately 8 stations (with marshals, usually unbribable) at which members of a racing crew must each drink a particular alcoholic beverage in the shortest possible time, before moving onto the next station and a different drink. The aim is to both 'drump' crews ahead and ultimately to finish Head of the Drumps. Club formal hall generally completes the evening.
Head of the River Race
Sat 19th March
A huge head race on the Tideway (tidal river Thames) over the University Boat Race course
The largest annual VIIIs head race in the country, attracting most rowing clubs and many University and College crews. The course is 4 1/4 miles, from Mortlake to Putney.
