News & Star: Tribute to the stars who almost kept Cumbria up

News & Star: "Tribute to the stars who almost kept Cumbria up

Published on 29/04/2006

By Stan Launder

CUMBRIA bowed out of Division One of the Inter Counties Darts Championship last weekend when they were beaten 25-14 by Hertfordshire.

Despite suffering our second relegation in successive seasons there are many positives to carry forward into next season in Division Two.

The Ladies B team always have a tough deal on these away matches – a long journey and then straight on to the board.

Our girls got a pretty big thrashing 6-0 with only Rachel Morrill and Chris Edgar managing to win a leg, But most of the girls got down to doubles which is not too bad – one of the Herts girls had a 22+ average."

"Teenage Talent Wins Open Holland

DUTCH teenager Michael van Gerwen has won the 2006 Holland Casino Open Holland, defeating Colin Osborne in Sunday's final.

The 16-year-old has been developing a growing reputation, and warmed up in style for his forthcoming appearance in the International Darts League.

He defeated Kevin Painter, Andy Jenkins and Andy Smith on his way to the latter stages, and overcame World Championship semi-finalist Wayne Jones in the last four."

WSoD: Aiming for greatness - Victory Lane Bar in Otisville

Aiming for greatness: "Aiming for greatness
Pointed pub pastime gets its own World Series

Story by Russ Tinsley

'When the league is going, I practice at least one hour a night,' Jim Hutlock says as he backs toward the dart throwing line. It's his turn to throw, and he doesn't want to make his teammates wait.

Hutlock is a formidable man, standing about 6 feet and round enough to play a good Santa Claus at the mall. He wears a baseball cap and a green cotton polo shirt. His expression is a jolly squint, with his lips slightly pursed, his goatee a dull silver."

Dartoids World: "“Top Cat” Curtin Closes Curtain in Final Qualifier
# 246 04/22/2004

He finished in the top eight in Windsor Locks on March 18 and in the top four in Marlborough on April 1 but today in Somerville he took no prisoners. Yes, as you have probably already heard, Townsend, Massachusetts’ Tom Curtin – one of America’s darting class acts and one of the Minute Man Dart League’s finest – stepped to the line in the seventh leg of the final today against Lowville, New York’s Dave Lambert, stared pressure straight in the eyes, and stroked a double eighteen finish that he is certain to remember forever, and in doing so closed the curtain on the World Series of Darts qualifying tournaments and booked the twelfth position on the Mohegan stage.

Only four spots remain, all to be determined on May 19 at Friday Night Madness. Rumor has it that nearly one hundred darters have already registered for this last shot at a million dollar payday – and that registration may be cut off early. I encourage you to book your spot absolutely as soon as possible.

It seems like only yesterday that the World Series of Darts (WSOD) was announced. And when it was announced there were many who doubted the details. So much has happened in the short time since the March to the Mohegan began to wend its way back and forth across America...

Darts in America has changed.

Lives have been changed. "

Typically any tale of someone beginning a career or hobby starts with a funny, quirky or interesting anecdote on how said career got started.
That holds true for how Roger Carter was introduced to the world of darts - on a bet in a smoky English pub in 1981.
“This ... guy I was in the Air Force with named Boomer - a big ol’ guy - started teaching me about how to play darts,” Carter said. “He said if I beat him I could have his darts and if he beat me I had to buy his drinks - so I got me a new set of darts.”
And so the career of one of America’s most successful dart professionals was born - a career that has seen Carter compete in, and win, some of the world’s most prestigious tournaments.
In May Carter will head to the Mohegan Sun Resort in Uncasville, Conn., to compete in the World Series of Darts for the chance to win $1 million - an event that will be televised by ESPN."

PETER Manley kept alive his play-off hopes in the Holsten Premier League Darts League with an 8-3 win over Wayne Mardle in Doncaster.

The Carlisle-based world finalist grabbed his third win of the campaign at The Dome, completing the double over winless Mardle in style.

Manley led throughout after stepping in to take the first leg against the darts. He moved 2-0 up before Mardle took out double eight to get off the mark, but Manley won the fourth with his trademark double top." - WSoD Qualifier: Dave DePriest's Printer-Friendly Page: "Darts player zeroes in on $1 million

Press Sports Editor

GRAND RAPIDS -- Dave DePriest may one day be a world champion, but he won't call himself an athlete.

'I used to be an athlete,' DePriest, 32, said this week, talking about his black belt in the martial art of shorinryu. 'There was one point where I won 22 tournaments in a row. But what I'm doing now can't be compared to dunking a basketball or running a marathon.'

Early in March, the Grand Rapids man topped a field of 197 dart-throwing competitors in Chicago to win the Midwest Regional. Twelve regional winners nationwide are in the field for the World Series of Darts, set for May 19-21 at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut.

The event is being co-sponsored by ESPN, which will telecast it nationally, and first prize could be as high as $1 million.

'I would call darts a sport, but those who play aren't what we think of as athletes,' DePriest went on. 'There are many sports when you just can't make it because you aren't big enough or strong enough.

'But in darts, you can get to any level you want because there are no physical limitations. You need good hand-eye coordination, accuracy. You have to be able to focus.'"

Dear Leslie:

As you know, the essence of what follows has been e-mailed to you privately and you have not responded. You have cast dispersion on my integrity. I must respond. In doing so, I mean no disrespect to the AMOA, NDA or darts in general.

There is a quote attributed to you floating around the Internet at the moment, directed at me and my column Reggie and the Snotmuffins, as follows:

“…that (the) ‘bad press’ was pulled by the source the day it went out due to inaccuracies and just bad facts [emphasis added]. The slight difference in the rule, just as in pool, allows for two things we cannot control: 1) how level the floor is on the entire tournament floor and 2) the fact that all games cannot be up against a wall. Therefore, there can be a very slight variance needed to ensure that the game is secure. For instance, last year someone shoved over a dart board. It took down another board. If we did level the game for stability that would have taken down more boards. Hope this helps. Leslie”

I pulled the story, and have explained publicly my reason for pulling the story as follows:"

Calming and contemplative, darts was right on target for a TV ratings bull's-eye until snooker took over in the 1980s. Jacques Peretti finds out where it went wrong for his heroes

Saturday April 8, 2006
The Guardian

When I was a kid, darts was massive. Fifteen million people tuned in to Bullseye, with Bully - a large side of beef in a striped shirt - bellowing: 'Iiiin one! A Teasmade.' Darts players were celebrities: Bobby 'The Dazzler' George encrusted himself in signet rings and gold belchers and appeared on a top entertainment show of the day, Saturday Night With Emu. World champion Alan 'The Welsh Wizard' Evans got to play a game with darts enthusiast Muhammad Ali (who won, declaring himself, inevitably 'The Greatest'). I know this might seem a bit strange to you, but to me, a middle-class child growing up in suburbia, darts was glamorous, the stench of beer, sweat and fags wafting through the telly and hooking me for life.

Article continues
Twenty years on, darts has disappeared. I tell a lie, Bullseye is about to be revived, on Challenge TV. But the game, as a mass entertainment phenomenon, is gone. You can sit in a pub listening to Crazy Frog, drinking chardonnay and puffing on a pencil, but you'd be lucky to find a dartboard. I wanted to find out why darts had vanished, and so I went off to meet my childhood heroes for a BBC documentary.

First stop, George Hall - Bobby George's incredible mansion in Essex, self-built in the shape of a dart. Bobby was darts' first millionaire: he has a stained glass dartboard over the front door, and his own personal Chinese takeaway in the grounds ('Wok This Way') because the wife can't stand the stink in the house. The mansion has 18 bedrooms ('I think I overdid it on the bedrooms,' Bobby concedes). Each room is painted a lurid yellow because a mate (another darts player called Tony Sontag) gave him the paint for free and 'I didn't...."

Well did anybody watch and what did you think?

I’m gobsmacked! That’s a British term meaning handsome.

It turns out that I have something in common with a World Class darts player. His name’s Wayne Mardle and he published a book which I have just finished en route from Tampa, Florida to Bangkok, Thailand. I highly recommend it but suggest that you eat first.

I arrived in Bangkok, knackered (another British term) and hungry. Travel is a bitch, a view Mardle and I share, and that’s why I’m tired. But it’s the book that made me hungry. I’m dying for some Kentucky Fried Chicken. Read it and you’ll understand why.
