Congratulations to young Sam Jamieson who passed his Umpires theory test at recent Craft Night.
Turnout was very poor and lethargy by many of the club members is likely to cause problems in the second half of the season. We really need more qualified umpires willing to take a turn umpiring club games. We cannot continue to rely on a few hardy band of volunteers.
Barbara Morgan has already agreed to host another Craft Night in January and it is vitally important that we get behind this.
Once you have your theory test the onus then falls onto club to organise fixtures to get individuals the games they require to complete the practical element of the award.
Lets make 2014 the year that Kelburne increase its number of qualified umpires we will advertise date of Craft Night once confirmed.
