RESULTS - Club Night Thursday 4th September

Its been a while since Wilson Henry last played a Club Night Singles but on Thursday night he returned with a vengeance to take out the final against Deon Toki.

He was impressive with four high finishes of 100 110, 111 and 120 even though he didn't hit a 180 on the night. But like they say 180s for show, doubles for dough !

Our youth players again proved to be growing in stature with several making the knockout rounds.

35 players entered on the night.

RESULTS - Club Night Thursday 28th August

Back to back club night victories for Mike Day showed he is back to form after his recent enforced lay-off. Mike also hit 3 x 180s. Two of these were back to back 180s with his first 6 darts in his qualifying group game against Stephen Holt. The group games are best of 3 legs 401 so Mike wasn't in with a shot at a 501 nine darter but it would have been very interesting if it had been a 501 game!

Bit behind with posting these for one reason or another...

Club Night Thursday 7th August
No results sheet received (lot of people at NZDC Nationals in Rotorua) but Stephen "Cha Wee Wee" Holt did let me know that Blair Neverman beat Nathan Holt in the Final. Well done Blair, I could see a win has been coming for some weeks now !

Club Night Thursday 14th August
Yet another win for Mick Lacey ! Well done to youth players Charles Shiers who made the final and Nathan Holt who made the semis after his appearance in the final last week.

Phil Taylor to come to NZ ! ! !

Phil Taylor to come to NZ !!!... Invercargill to be exact, of all places. A great opportunity to see a massive legend of Darts right here. Hope there are enough motels and hotels in Invercargill to cope with the influx of Aucklanders who have never been past the Bombay Hills before who might be making the trip.

SuperLeague Darts...?

Not 100% sure who the SuperLeague Darts is being run under but it looks like it is being privately run by 265 Events Ltd? There is money to be made on the back of the PDC/SKY TV popularity and maybe they are cashing in on it? There is no indication SuperLeague Darts is sanctioned by DPNZ or NZDC. If it isn't sanctioned by either, didn't DPNZ or NZDC see this coming? Are we witnessing a break-away from the established Darts organisations in NZ. Is this the berth of of a new PDC style organisation within NZ with players going off and being part of running their own events? I know DPNZ is aligned with the PDC and NZDC is aligned with the BDO but are they in both in danger of fighting over who runs amateur darts in NZ while somebody else gets the drop on running semi-professional darts in NZ? What was the criteria for the selected players in the SuperLeague Darts? Was it based on any rankings?

I am deliberately asking questions here because there will be some people in the know and a lot who aren't. Those who aren't in the know have got to be curious about what's taking place here... aren't you? Do you even know how darts is structured in NZ and what events are run by which organisation, DPNZ or NZDC or CNZDA? Maybe the overall picture is clear for some, but for me it all seems a bit cloudy...

By the way don't shoot me I'm only the piano player - I don't write the songs ;)

I'm not actually at the NZDC Nationals but I will post some headline results if I get them. Here is one result I received:

Sunday, August 3, 2014

STAR PLAYER of the WEEK

I was just about to throw a dart on Thursday Night Club Singles when BOOM! I span around and there right behind me flat out on the floor was Pat O'Connell. Most everybody else was looking to see what had happened. Had he collapsed, had he feinted?

Pat let out a bit of a groan. I said "are you okay Pat?" as I bent down to give him a hand. Being the tuff old bugger that he is Pat quickly bounced back up to his feet not wanting anybody to make too much of a fuss. Thank goodness he had only tripped over somebody else's foot and gone spread eagled. But it was a dive that would have made even Arjen Robben of the Netherlands World Cup football team proud. Apart from a little bit of embarrassment "Pat O" was okay.

Pat is another of the club's volunteers behind the scenes being the 180 Controller. He meticulously keeps the 180 stats and organises the badges and everything else to do with the 180s. Pat is another person who does what he does because he loves darts, tries as hard as he can every time he plays and deserves recognition for what he does making Pat O'Connell this weeks 'Star Player of the Week'

RESULTS - Club Night Singles Thursday 31st July

Mick Lacey ran out the winner again in the Thursday Night Club Singles. A different finalist opponenet for Mick tonight in the form of Steve Hanley who played well all night and stretched Mick in the final eventually going down 1-2. Well done again Mick !

Special mention this week to youth player Jack Mitchell who hit 3 x 180s, one more than Mick. At the moment Mick and Jack seem to be somewhat dominating the headlines at West City for their various efforts.

Next Thursday Club Night will still be on even though a lot of players will be away at the NZDC Nationals in Rotorua. 32 players attended this week as the good turnouts continue.

 
180s:
Jack Mitchell x 3; Mick Lacey x 2; Billm Johnson x 1; Geoff Koster x 1; Shaun Beardall x 1; Blair Hutchison x 1; Deon Toki x 1.
High Finishes:
Mason Ramsay 108; Geoff Koster 117; Steve Hanley 136.

STAR PLAYER of the WEEK

Although 180s are a prestigious throw during a game they are reasonably common to see. The real holy grail in a game is a 9 darter which you might never see in person. Coming right after that is the holy grail of finishes, a 170. Although a 170 finish is far more common than a 9 darter they are still relatively rare to see in person.

Well the Star Player of the Week this week is Stephen "Cha Wee Wee" Holt who did hit a 170 finish in last Thursday's Club Night Singles. Stephen is with out a doubt one of the club stalwarts who does a lot of work behind the scenes and has done for years. People like Stephen deserve a big pat on the back along with a big 'thank you' because without people like him (and there are a few others) the club would just not function. And he does it all because he loves throwing arrows.

He is is a tough character to beat when he is on form so it wasn't a complete surprise when he told me he had hit a 170 finish. Stephen being who he is went on to say he had been playing "crap" even though he had hit the 170. I said "you didn't qualify then? (for the KO rounds)". He said "yes I qualified...". Maybe not playing so crap then Stephen ! ;)
