30th AugBRITISH UNIVERSITIES & COLLEGES SPORT

The first BUCS hockey fixtures of the season start on Wed 10th Oct, and OHUA support both Oxford Uni and Oxford Brookes with the umpiring of their home fixtures. Games are on Wednesday afternoon/early evening during term time and are generally played at Brookes or Iffley Road. The standards vary so there is a suitable game for everyone. If you're interested in umpiring then please indicate as such on your personal availability page, and if you can do two games so much the better. Expenses are paid for these games, and if you have any questions please contact me.
Thanks
James Bartrip

22nd AugOHUA Web system changes - update

Members should have received an e-mail last week regarding changes to the OHUA system as a consequence of the GDPR legislation introduced earlier this year. We would ask that you log in to your personal area of the website at the earliest opportunity and complete the necessary confirmations. It doesn't take long and the system will step you through the process.
Part of the upgrade to the system has changed the way that your personal area looks and it will now be easier to use on a mobile device or tablet.
Finally the issue previously affecting the availability function shown in your personal area has been resolved. If you haven't been able to do so already please update your availability ahead of the start of the new season.
Thanks
Mark Cumming
