Ken, Wilson and Peggy Win Birkenhead Mixed Threes

Ken Moir, Wilson Henry and Peggy Wikaira have won the Birkenhead RSA Last Chance Ham Mixed Threes held earlier today at the Birkenhead RSA beating a team led by Peter Wearing. There were only 16 entries. This must have been disappointing to the organisers who have held this event at the same time for a good number of years. Unfortunately the Avondale RSA decided to have a mixed pairs ham tournament on the same day which undoubtedly took some players away. Six teams did travel down from Whangarei to play and were joined by 10 local teams. Ken Moir had the first 180 and highest score with 145.

In the Avondale RSA mixed pairs Brendon Deed of Swanson RSA and Rina Coady of West City won the final playing Mike Collet and Ngauru Wikaira of the Mt Wellington RSA. There were 16 entries in this tournament also.

On Sunday 19 December at 12 noon West City Darts Association are having their AGM. It will be followed immediately by a ham tournament for members only.

West City Play NSW Touring team

West City Darts Association played a team led by Mark Luckwell from New South Wales Australia On Friday night and again earlier today at the West City City clubrooms in Ranui. Mark's team was coming to the end of a tour of the North Island having played in Wellington, Gisborne, Rotorua and Palmerston North before coming to Auckland. On Friday night a round robin pairs competition was played against the eight Australians ending in an 18 all draw. Today a pairs and singles format resulted in a 24 to 21 win from West City. Though the games were competitive it was mainly a social occasion. West City put down a hangi for the visitors and this was enjoyed by all.

Mark had this to say about his teams tour of NZ " I brought a team of friends from OZ. My main objective was to show them how darts is played in N.Z. In Australia we are much more reserved. There is no way that music is ever played while there is a game on. People as a general rule are quiet and do not talk much to their opposition. It is not so much as being ignorant as following a tradition of playing darts and not too much emphasis is placed on camaraderie of playing against each other. These last 9 days have been a learning curve for all of us. From Wellington on Oct 1 till today there has been nothing but warmth, love and respect shown to me and my group. Nothing has been too much of a problem and we are certainly appreciative of everything that has been done for us. Personally I had an inkling of how we would be received but I took enormous pride in how my group adapted to out guests and how they also appreciated everything that was done for us. I sincerely believe that we Aussies have much to learn from our neighbours from this side of the Tasman, The infrastructure, support and approach to the game of darts far out weigh how darts are played at home. We truly have much to learn from our neighbours on this side of the Tasman. Perhaps ad-hoc trips like the one I organised may show my fellow country men a better way of approaching the game than we do at present. I know our group have been inspired. In finishing on behalf or our group I would like to thank each one of every one of you from West City for your friendship and hospitality it is appreciated by us all".

Paddles Says Goodbye

Mark Padley, known as Paddles by all, has been a member of the West City Darts association for the past 4 years. On Sunday 24th April Paddles is leaving New Zealand to go and live in Greece so he can look after his elderly father who is 82 and retired there. Paddles will be missed by all those who know him. There have been several farewell parties for him and on Thursday he will be at the West City club night for the last time. Anyone wishing to wish him all the best is most welcome to come along.

Paddles has been playing darts on and off for ten years in total. He first played in Blenheim whilst he was in the Airforce for the Corsairs dart team in the early 1980's. The highlight of his darting career was winning the Inter-Dominion pairs with Jimmy Hennah when it was played at the Henderson RSA in 2008. Paddles favourite scoring spot is the triple 19. Paddles being shorter than most has to reach on tip toe to pull darts from double 20 so has found triple 19 closer to his height. He hits many 171's in the way some players hit the 180's. His darting tip is "hit the double first".

His new address will be Tolo Nr Naphion, Greece. He still owns a house in Ranui so has kept a foothold here. So who knows when he gets sick of Ouzo and goat cheese maybe he will come back.

Goodbye Paddles we will miss you. Bon Voyage.
