Re: Canadian Cricket Umpires Association

Dear Cricketers:

The Canadian Cricket Association has LONG BEFORE Robert Weekes arrived, attempted to put in place a National Umpires Association. Past
President JIm Siew was actively engaged in this venture.

If Mr. Harris wished to be truthful, he would also have stated this and
also that we recommend that as a National body that we have associations of umpires, scorers etc., in our quest for ODI and later Test status.

THERE IS NO RELATION AT ALL TO ROBERT WEEKES AND THE QUOTED ARTICLE.

The T&D UA were asked to consider being a leading force in re-igniting a
National Association.

Colin Hoare and others like Tony Gudgin have LONG taught and accredited umpires across Canada and even in the United States.
What a pity we do not have more objective and professional workers -
less talk of course.

DGE
