The Secret Umpire: Event cancellations

Continuing our series called The Secret Umpire where we invite different race umpires to demystify the key aspects of umpiring. Articles are written by experienced umpires who will remain anonymous. This week we look at event cancellations

In the current unprecedented COVID-19 climate we find ourselves in, event cancellations are unfortunately the temporary norm and few of us are surprised when they happen.

Once things return to “normal” whenever and whatever that may be, there will inevitably still be occasions when for one reason or another an event is cancelled. The scope of this article in The Secret Umpire series is to explain and justify why such decisions are made.
