After the 'Pacmania' tournament was over I had a meeting with Manny and he told me that he will be backing another for $100.000.00 over the June 19-21 weekend in LA somewhere (venue to be announced soon). As soon as all the details have been finalized I am sure that it will be ADO sanctioned. There are no other big tournaments scheduled for that particular weekend in the U.S. as far as I am aware. He is doing it as a precurser for the Desert Classic, which is the following week, and hopes that the big guns from around the world will be there, as well as all those and more that came to the tournament this past weekend.
It was a huge success, considering how little time everyone involved had to put it together.
Thanks Manny, for supporting and sponsoring a sport that has had very little support and TV coverage over the years here in the U.S., compared with other countries that have regular TV coverage on a weekly/monthly basis and that have paid professionals that can actually earn a living playing darts.
