Ken 'Smokey' Dawson reaches 50 not out!
2018 marks Ken ''Smokey'' Dawson's 50th year as an umpire in local metropolitan cricket. Ken has been umpiring from 1968 - 2011 with the Heidelberg District Cricket Association and 2011 - 2018 with the Diamond Valley Cricket Association.
To mark the occasion the Diamond Valley Cricket Umpires Association nominated Ken for a Cricket Victoria 50 year service award. I am pleased to advise that Cricket Victoria has accepted our nomination and Ken together with his wife Lyn were guests of Cricket Victoria for a special presentation at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on day 3 of the Boxing Day test match between Australia and India. Congratulations Smokey.
