Free State umpiring course wrap-up.

MSSA's new level 1 umpires.
JCS Private Centre played host to Mind Sports South Africa's level 1 umpire's course.

It was exciting to again see South Africa's top players participating in a umpire's course. Gordon McCormack, Yu-Hsien Lin, Leonard Loftus, Samson Thinene, and Joseph Mathlong (all having provincial titles under their belts) showed their competitive spi
rit by absolutely 'acing' the course.

All-in-all the Free State umpiring course was a huge success with all the partici
pants passing with flying-colours and enjoying the course.
