WPA Umpires' Workshop

Notes from the Workshop held at the Kapiti Pétanque Club on Sunday, 10 August 2008.


Claire Bradburn (Silverstream), Gwen Hill (Kapiti), Jan McHardy (Kapiti), Tony Mudgway (Wanganui East), Michael Rocks (Khandallah), Bryan Wells (Horowhenua), Barbara Whittington (Park Avenue) - morning session only.


Mryna Lane (Masterton), Graeme Morris (Masterton), Ralph Priddle (Masterton), Glen Selbie (Wanganui East).

In the morning session, National Umpire Barbara Whittington led a question and answer session on the Rules and interpretations. Several questions and situations necessitate further research so Barbara will send out a response. Barbara advised that she is in discussion with a potential National Director of Umpiring.

In the afternoon, the discussion was on what we would like to see happen in the Wellington region.
