Dartoid's Column 5-17-2010


It should come as no surprise that Patrick Chaplin’s more than decade-long research earned him the first and only Ph.D. “in darts” from Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge in 2006 – and darts enthusiasts everywhere are in for an indulgence now that a popular treatment of Chaplin’s dissertation is available on the market.

Chaplin’s dissertation-turned-treatise, Darts in England, 1900-1939 – A Social History (Manchester University Press, 2009), is -

#darts Whiskery Wizard of Oz takes the Old Dart by storm

THESE days even Simon ''The Wizard'' Whitlock himself is not so sure which came first: the wicked Oz nickname or the matching goatee beard and plaited, waist-length ponytail.

Whatever, he says, it works. Like magic.

from the email stack... The old-timers’ dart reunion is coming up fast


Craig D.

The old-timers’ dart reunion is coming up fast—just two weeks from now!

So if you haven’t already decided whether to come, now’s the time to make up your mind. The first notice for this went out on Jan. 10 in the hopes that May 22 would become a red-letter day on your calendar and other events could be planned around it.

The reunion is set for Saturday, May 22 from noon-closing at Paddy O’s Pub (formerly Looney’s) in Torrance. And if you think you’ll just catch up at next year’s Las Vegas Open, that tournament will no longer take place since both Tom and Della Fleetwood have passed away. Crew members were advised of this recently by Alex Casillas, who was a long-standing partner in the tournament.

I’ve had more than 100 people say they will be there, so don’t miss this opportunity to mingle with old friends and maybe even make some new friends. There are some folks coming from great distances, so if you’re in Southern California it might be worth making just a short trek down a freeway or two for the day.

If you have not emailed me in the last two weeks about the reunion, then please confirm whether or not you’ll be there and whether you’re bringing along a significant other, wife, husband, kid, or whoever. That way Vicki Williams will have the right amount of food—and beer—for the masses!

Bring photos of your younger self (and your pals), wear a dart shirt if you can, bring memorabilia, darts, patches and pins for trading or whatever you can find from the good ol’ days! There will be prizes!

And forward this letter to anyone who qualifies as an old-timer (those who played darts prior to 2000) who may not already be aware of the event.

See you there!

SEWA #Darts Trivia

We thought it might be time for a new Trivia contest and the Premier League would be a great topic.
We will start with it of course on Thursday and like the last time it will be a three weeks contest with three questions a week.
The questions will not be too difficult I promise - but this time in the end we want a solution word from you....

Of course we´ve again great prices to offer - Erik once again managed to talk Unicorn in giving us three sets of darts to the winners and beside this the winner will get one of those great Premier League T-Shirts which were launched to support the Everyman Charity - it is not signed because it is black, and the two runner-ups will get an official Premier League program.
So hopefully a lot of members will join the contest!!!
