Snippets Of Information

1. West City Darts association are holding their AGM at 12 noon on Sunday 18th December at the West City Darts Association club rooms, 103 Glen Road, Ranui. The AGM will be followed by prize giving, members only ham tournament and barbecue.
2. The men's champ of champs is being held on Saturday 3rd December. No poster or confirmation of times or venue has arrived yet.
3. I heard a whisper that the Sherlock Enua Memorial mixed pairs is being held at Nikau this Sunday. Again I have seen no poster so cannot confirm it. This is a cash tournament so if you are interested you need to talk to Girl Kahaki to find out what is happening.
4. On the 28th January there is to be a DPNZ( Dart Players New Zealand) /DPA (Dart Players Australia) singles tournament being held at the Papakura club in Auckland. Normally DPA tournaments offer approx $2500 in prize money and are straight start. The DPNZ ones normally offer about $500 prize money and are double start so it will be interesting to see what they do. More than likely the prize money will be $500 total which I cannot see being attactive to any Australian player looking at travelling. Similar tournaments are to take place at three other venues in NZ later in the year. I would prefer the straight start and more prize money approach as it encourages players to travel. If they are playing well they can cover their expenses. At the moment with $150 first prize for most DPNZ events the better players might not even cover the air ticket or petrol money if they win. If and when a poster comes I will publish it on this blog.
