 Passing of Umpire Lincoln Champagnie

 Hello Mr. Baksh,


It is with deep regret that I learnt of the death of Umpire Lincoln Champagnie. As is stated and well known, Mr. Champagnie was one of the founding members of the New York Cricket Umpires' Association and subsequently the USACUA. Mr. Champagnie devoted and dedicated himself to the building and development of umpires and umpiring in the USA for over two decades.The USACUA and the WICUA owe a debt of gratitude to Mr. Champagnie for his foresight in charting this process of establishing an umpiring organization that is so fundamental to the game of cricket. 

We are saddened to know that Mr. Champagnie has passed on, but his name will be with us forever. On behalf of the Executive and the members of WICUA, I want to extend my deepest condolences to his family and to the family of the USACUA. We know that in the time of bereavement,there is a lot of emotions, but we are all praying that God will take good care of you all. May his soul rest in peace.

Regards

Vivian Johnson
Secretary

About WICUA

 

As a people we are indeed living in a changing world. Some persons are afraid of changes and for diverse reasons. From the outset changes are affected for better and not for worse, however sometimes the dreams and the aspirations are not achieved, this brings to fore such words as failure, disappointment and grief.  Conversely more often than not you hear of joy, success, progress and just reward.

As umpires there has been significant changes in the umpiring landscape, the numbers required for some category of matches have been severely tailored to the point that some umpires felt not motivated, whilst some have experienced financial and status driven reward and are extremely happy.

The truth has always been that changes are intended for good. Umpires need to look at the bright side and remain focused. At all stages not every umpire would have made it to the Elite or ICC Panel or the WICB Regional Panel. This should not in any way be a hindrance, instead an umpire should work hard to reach the top with determination.

Cricket umpiring should not be seen as offering a service for free, it is a business and it has pay days.  This therefore should provide the drive, the impetus thus acting as a stimulus for one’s motivation. Notwithstanding however WICUA has a duty to be, if not ahead of the game, at least should be close to it. WICUA ought to provide the leadership necessary to keep hopes and aspirations alive.  There are ways that WICUA can forge, which may assist in enhancing the quality of umpiring life.  One such way is to organize and work with territories in trying to establish an Umpires Exchange Programme within WICUA.  This is actively under consideration for the future.

Please get in touch to offer comments and join our mailing list.
