CCUA well represented at 2013 WICUA Convention in Trinidad
The Canada Cricket Umpires’ Association recently participated in the West Indies Cricket Umpires’ Association’s Biennial Convention, at the Cascadia Hotel in St. Anns, Trinidad. The Delegates and Observers of Canada shared six days of devoted interest by connecting with umpires of the West Indies and North America, through a series of meetings, awards and a final dinner banquet. Mr. Basdeo Dookhie and Mr. Azad Khan of CCUA represented as the Delegates as Mr. and Mrs. Fred Leacock, Denis Rajroop, Jeewanlal Sookhoo and Mr. Farouk Ali supported their views as the Observers. A new WICUA Executive Committee was elected at the convention. Mr. Fitzroy Hayles, who served as the Area 1 Vice-President for the WICUA was re-elected unopposed to the same position.
WICUA celebrated its 50th year of existence, where senior members, current and retirees were honored at the awards banquet for their contribution to the WICUA. The President of the West Indies Cricket Board Mr. Dave Cameron of Jamaica, was the guest-of-honor at the banquet. CCUA extends thanks to the Executive Committee Members, Delegates, Observers and well-wishers for their continued support. CCUA also wishes to thank the Trinidad Scorers and Umpires Council for their hospitality and hosting the 2013 convention. United States of America Cricket Umpires’ Association graciously accepted the invitation to host the 2015 West Indies Cricket Umpires’ Association Biennial Convention.
The announcement by USA Delegate Mr. Mohammed N. Baksh was met with loud cheers and applause. Mr. Baksh asked all umpires to apply early for US visas and also indicated that USACUA will provide all required letters and documentations to their respective member countries for the visa applications.
An informal poll among the participants indicated that New York is the front runner for hosting this prestigious convention followed by Florida, Atlanta and Las Vegas. It is believed that New York was the choice of the umpires, since many have family and friends in the area. USACUA President and WICUA Area 1 Vice-President, Mr. Fitzroy Hayles said that he was thrilled that USA was chosen to host the 2015 convention and will announce the details as they are made available.
