Sydney Darts Masters

Like many others I was in a rush to get home from darts on Thursday Night to watch the Sydney Darts Masters. With two Kiwis players in the last 16 there was added interest, particularly when one of them, Monty Tuhua, a good mate and a team member of West city Darts was playing.
When the draw came out I believed Warren Parry had a great chance to defeat Paul Nicholson, Monty's draw was far more intimidating.
As a Kiwi supporter I was a little disappointed when Warren was beaten. I still think he could have won that game but for one missed double.

The Fourth game of the night, out comes Monty, I thought he looked a little nervous (that is not a bad thing) but he also looked focussed.
The game started, it was apparent from Jackpots first throw Monty was going to have play the game of his life. In minutes Jackpot had raced to a 5-0 lead. A white wash was on the cards, Monty, as is his way, never gave up and took the 6th leg with a 62 peg.
In the final leg, Jackpot again showed why he is one of the best in  the world, the game won 6-1.

I went to bed disappointed for Monty, for West City and for New Zealand.

The next day I watched the game again without emotion.
Did Monty actually play well? My opinion, taking into account he was playing Adrian Lewis the world number 3 player, (and Adrian is playing really well) was YES Monty did play well.
He hit a number of good scores and he took a leg off the world number 3.
The reality was Jackpot just played AWESOME.
Well done Monty, you played in a televised World Darts Tournament. You showed all the qualities you have, ability, respect, humour and humility.
You did yourself and West City proud.

APDE Singles this weekend

On Thursday a playoff was held to find the four West City Men and Ladies to play in this weekends APDE singles.

The four men are:
Stephen Hanley, Peter Bloomfield, Nathan Holt and Charles Shiers.
180's hit during the playoff: Dave Curreen, Jack Mitchell and Peter Smith.
100+ Finishes:  Charles Shiers 117, Geoff Koster 138, Stephen Hanley 114
100+ starts: Jack Mitchell 103, Charles Shiers 112 & 116, Geoff Koster 130, Stephen Hanley 130,
Dave Curreen 130.

Mens Fours for APDE.
Players please note there is a review being done of the playoff card from Thursday night as there was a substantial number of games played out of sequence. Even though it is a full round robin, players do not have the right to manipulate the order in which it is played. This can give some players an unfair advantage. A decision is pending to see if a playoff for the pairs will be replayed.


The Four Ladies are:
Olivia Curreen, Colleen Curreen, Stacey Heavey, Lou Williams. Reserve Jeanette Scott.

The four Ladies pairs for APDE pairs are:
Olivia & Colleen, Peggy & Stacey, Lou & Loretta, Jeanette and Maine.

Club Night Results 29/8/13

The numbers were down this week as there was a playoff for the APDE singles.
After the qualifying rounds The last 8 in the singles were:
David Day, Mike Day, Stephen Holt, Wills Terore Snr, Wills TeRore Jnr, Joseph Gallina, Dean Webster & Mike Radford.

The final of the Club singles saw Mike defeat Dean Webster 2-1.

Outstanding Results for Region2 at the Darts Nationals


We have just returned from the NZ National Darts Championships that were held in Nelson from
 4th August to 9th August.

The week commenced with the Region team playoffs where both the Auckland Men’s and Ladies Teams triumphed.  It must be said that our region teams played as unified teams and not as individual Auckland Associations.

Particularly satisfying was seeing the men’s team retain their title from last years’ championships.

I consider playing the region events as one of the most enjoyable and rewarding team environments in darts and urge all serious players to playoff to make these teams. 

The region team wins clearly were the catalyst for Region 2 players to excel over the week. 

There were some outstanding results:
