Mosgeil 5000 Cancelled for 2012

The New Zealand Dart Council has announced that the NZ ranked Mosgiel 5000 dart tournament hosted by the Mosgiel Darts Association has been cancelled for 2012. It was usually held in February. This is a disappointment to the players who used to play in it. Some travelled from as far as Auckland to compete. The player numbers were never as high as the North Island tournaments. Perhaps the smaller numbers did not make it financially viable. No one has offered a reason officially as to why it is cancelled. The NZDC are to meet very soon and I hope they can find another tournament to take its place. I know there was a good tournament being run in the Taranaki area that wanted official recognition from the NZDC and ranking points. Hopefully the NZDC will look at adding that tournament or another to the circuit.
In my opinion the NZDC should have more NZDC ranking tournaments. If the tournaments are well run and financially viable why not. If we want our top players to perform at an international level we need to create a domestic competition that is tough and highly competitive to lift the general standard of play. The more opportunity the top players are given to play each other the better. The more money offered as prize money the better as it means the better players can cover travel, entry and accommodation expenses which in turn encourages more travel and more competition.

Controversey At the Darts

Not very often but every now and again you get a moment in a dart tournament or a dart match where something unusual happens and it starts a disagreement and sometimes an argument between players over a playing rule. I witnessed such an incident yesterday evening whilst Captaining the Onehunga Working Men's team in a Theo Meyer Challenge match against Manurewa RSA at the Onehunga Working Men's Club, The Mall Onehunga.

An Onehunga pair were playing a Manuwera pair. It was the first leg. Onehunga had 16 left and Manurewa had 15 left. It was Onehunga's turn to throw. The Onehunga player aimed for double 8 and threw his first dart. The dart landed on the outside of the wire and was a zero score. His next dart hit double 8. The player could not see that his dart was in because it was so close to the first dart. The chalker did not signal the dart being in because he could not see as the first dart was blocking his view. The player thinking the second dart had missed also threw a third dart which hit a single 8. He went to retrieve his darts and found he had hit the double with his second dart. The chalker agreed and was giving the leg to Onehunga.

Then some of the Manurewa RSA players began to object. They claimed the third dart hitting the single 8 had bust the score. The dispute regarding the rule went on for about ten minutes and game could not be carried on because Manurewa would not back down and continue to play.

I had to tell my players, even though I thought them correct, to play the leg as Manurewa wanted it. Onehunga were given the score 16 and Manurewa 15. Manurewa threw first. As it turned out Onehunga won the leg and it did not have a material result on the outcome of the match.

The Clubs NZ rule states ' Any dart thrown by a player after scoring the required finishing double shall not be counted as part of the score. The leg, set or match concerned is concluded by the dart scoring the required double.

The NZ Dart council rule is almost exactly the same stating ' Any darts mistakenly thrown by a player after scoring the required double shall not be counted as the respective leg, set or match is concluded by the dart scoring the required double".

The match was won by Manuwera RSA 11 to 10. Their next challenge is against Mt Wellington at a date in November.
