My sincere thanks to all captains and presidents who attended our first umpires/captains conference with over 90% of our clubs represented. Also, a personal commendation to our umpiring fraternity who had in excess of 70% of their active members attend which shows a genuine passion and interest in the up coming season. Thank you to all who contributed to the discussion last night and provided positive feedback which the board will take and implement prior to the commencement of the season. A final thanks to the South Perth Cricket Club for the use of their facility and the wonderful catering and hospitality provided which if this is reflected though to their on field performance they are in for a very successful season. All the very best to each and every umpire, player and team this year in what is shaping as a super season for WASTCA!
