Global #Darts Interview with Andy Hamilton

Andy Hamilton started his PDC career in 2004 when he managed to qualify for the UK Open. In 2005 he for the first time took part in the PDC World Championship and played himself into the quarterfinals where he lost to Bob Anderson. 2006 he celebrated his next big success - he reached the semi-finals of the World Matchplay and got the same result in the PDC World Championship 2007. In 2007 he won his first Pro Tour event and stood in the final of the grand Slam. The next few years were less spectacular though he had some good results. more at:

#darts "Why Darts?" - because Miss Wai hosts this weekly

Attracting new players to our beloved game of darts is a popular topic. Not claiming that we've discovered "The" magic sure-fired method - but - we have a weekly event that is becoming increasingly popular after only two months. And it is surpassing our original objective - getting new and infrequent, casual players up to the oche and more importantly returning the following week and sometimes with friends. The host bar has noticed the increased numbers of people on the night and is now offering prizes.

10/3/2012 Chris Helms recovery update #darts #ADO

You all are awesome! The Fundrazr account is going up, now about $1400 and I deposited the first mailed check. Got another $200, in the mail, today. I am picking up more, tonight. Also, know of 2 more benefits, out of Texas. When I get the info, I will send it out. Oh, another local benefit will be at Parks Place, in Dallas, this Sunday, I think. Okay, on to the important info:
Anita texted me, early this morning, that Chris was opening his eyes when they were doing stimulus tests, but not by voice command. I just got another text saying that he was resting, but unconscious. It is his brain healing and it takes time. But things are progressing.

Here is an update from about 4 hours ago, from Chris's sister:
A brief update about my brother, Christopher Shawn Helms:
Although still in ICU at University Hospital, he continues to make a little progress each day. The nurses told us this morning that he is opening his eyes now in response to stimulus, but isn't doing it yet when asked. Baby steps, but progress is progress!

Please keep the prayers and good wishes coming his way - they are working!!

Also, Friday will be his birthday. If you would like to send a card you can drop it off in his room during a visit or mail it to: 327 Devonshire, San Antonio, TX 78209

On a personal note, sending out my love and appreciation to all of the people who have reached out to Chris and all of our family during this crisis. It has been such a blessing to meet so many well-wishers and generous friends over this past week, either at the hospital or via phone, text and facebook. Hearing or reading so many great stories about my brother, from his compassion to his hilarious antics, has been very uplifting and has made the many long hours of waiting much more bearable.

There are several people who have REALLY stepped up and continue to volunteer their time and energy to helping Chris and the family through this, above and beyond what any of us could have anticipated. 'Thank you' isn't sufficient, but all I have are words to express the depth of our gratitude to each and every one of you.

Would you like to send Chris a card? Mail to:
327 Devonshire San Antonio, TX 78209

His condition remains unchanged from yesterday. So keep praying, share your stories, come by to visit if you like.

Update from our little sis, Chandalee:

" He has been moved to room 1072 (still in ICU). No significant changes one way or the other from the doctors' perspective but friends are reporting that he has been moving his fingers some and moving his lips too. One tiny step closer to consciousness and having him closer to recovery.

Thank you all again for the outpouring of love, support and prayers we have seen from everyone. I can't tell you enough how much it has meant to the family and I know it is helping Chris pull through this. "

ditto ♥

In addition, Anita says that they plan to do the trach and add a stomach feeding tube, in order to get the tubes out of his mouth, sometime, today. Biggest thing is still waiting to get that swelling down.

ADO Chris Helms serioulsly injured in a fall at work! #darts Region 2-2 California

John Lewis wrote: Today (Tuesday Sept. 26, 2012) in a work accident our good friend Christopher Helms, President of the ADO fell and was critically injured. He was life flighted to University Hospital San Antonio where he was operated on for a severe head injury. He is in recovery at this time and will be transferred to the ICU in critical condition. He h
as a skull fracture after falling off of of a second story roof at work today. Anita his wife and other family are at the hospital. He is in a medically induced coma to offer time for recovery. We don't know much more than this except he will be in a coma for several days. As he stabilizes we will have more information. Please share the news as quickly as you can to let all who know and love him know this difficult news.

more at:
Facebook Region 2-2 California


Spoke to Anita, last night. She is holding up, but can tell that she needs your thoughts and prayers, too. Today is a big step, as they continue the weaning off of the drugs that have Chris in the induced coma. It is a slow, very monitored process because if it is too quick, he could go into seizures. They will be looking for signs of him recognizing objects and faces, as well as wanting to communicate (the verbal will be difficult due the being on respirator). I have included Charlynn's 11:30pm post.

UPDATE: 11:30 pm Thursday

We are 60 hours into the 72 hour period that is so important with head trauma. Christopher is still listed as Critical, his vital signs are stable.

As explained in the last update, they have started to reduce the level of medications so that he can begin to return to consciousness. This is a delicate process and is done very slowly and deliberately, with constant monitoring to ensure he remains stable.

Continue to lift him up in prayer for a safe return to consciousness, and for his return to full health and happiness.

Understandably, the waiting is the hardest part for all of us, family and friends alike. I know that we (family) have been buoyed up by the out pouring of support and prayer. It is our hope that this community of support also find comfort through the very act of sharing the common hopes and prayers we all have for Chris. God bless each and every one of us as we join together to pray for Chris' full and complete healing.

Rest well all, and thank you again for your support and love.

#darts Sleepy Kramer get's a #book deal!

Anne Kramer writes about a great opportunity that has come her way, her website and articles have brought her the opportunity to write a book about darts! She writes:
I am going to be writing a book! Right before our trip to Canada in August, I received an email from an Editorial Director at a book publishing company in NYC. Apparently he had been reading my articles about darts, found my website to contact me, and he asked me if I would be interested in doing a book about darts. Obviously I said YES!!!! So I needed to submit an outline to him for the publisher to review to determine whether they would give me the contract to do it. Well, today I received the contract to do the book for them and needless to say, I am very excited! I feel like this is a huge opportunity to give something back to the game that we all love so much. I would like to thank each and every one of you that always took the time to offer words of encouragement to me in my writing, those who took the time to support me in all that I do, and those that are there for me as friends. All of you, and all the future players of the game are the reasons why I do the things I do to promote the game and this is now just the icing on the cake for all that effort I have given....and now it's time to get typing! The title they chose? THE ULTIMATE BOOK OF DARTS :-)

#darts Thorn Around The World, Part 27: “Delving Into Delft”

Submitted by on September 5, 2012 – 5:39 pm 
When I opened my eyes it was dark. The train was trickling down the track with that familiar click; most passengers had disembarked somewhere between London and the dwindling number of depots between the famous city and the eastern coast of Great Britain. The port of Harwich –and my overnight Stena Line ferry to Holland–was just ahead. I was about to enter my seventh country in three weeks.
I was tired from two days of high speed sightseeing through Wales and England, but nothing picks me up like the thought of a boat ride. This one would be like a poor man’s cruise, including a sleeping cabin, while I floated across the English Channel to the Netherlands.

#darts #practice A Better Way to Practice

If you really want to be a quality dartplayer you really have to put your time in on the pratice board. Some folks put in hours, while others may not seem to need as much to preform well, but in the end we must find what works for us. This article by violinist Noa Kageyama highlights the importance of the nature and quality of your practice.

A Better Way to Practice
Noa Kageyama   

While it may be true that there are no shortcuts to anywhere worth going, there certainly are ways of needlessly prolonging the journey. We often waste lots of time because nobody ever taught us the most effective and efficient way to practice. Whether it's learning how to code, improving your writing skills, or playing a musical instrument, practicing the right way can mean the difference between good and great.

You have probably heard the old joke about the tourist who asks a cab driver how to get to Carnegie Hall, only to be told: "Practice, practice, practice!"

I began playing the violin at age two, and for as long as I can remember, there was one question which haunted me every day.

Am I practicing enough?
What Do Performers Say?

I scoured books and interviews with great artists, looking for a consensus on practice time that would ease my conscience. I read an interview with Rubinstein, in which he stated that nobody should have to practice more than four hours a day. He explained that if you needed that much time, you probably weren't doing it right.

#darts Dartoid's World - "Jumping the Shark" and Touching the "Third Rail"

Regular readers of Dartiod's World (for those who aren’t "regular" might I suggest a nice bran muffin each morning) may have been shocked when my colleague and editor published his latest effort. In show biz terms he "jumped the shark” by writing about the “third rail” of darts. SEX. Yes, dear readers, sex has raised its ugly head yet again. No pun intended - but of course we’ll take it.
Jump the Shark? The phrase is used to define a particular scene, episode or aspect in which the writers use some gimmick in a desperate attempt to keep viewers' (or readers') interest. As well as Dartoid writes, no such cheap theatrics are needed to hold the reader's interest. That’s not the case with your loyal servant and pal of the Old Dart Coach - for which I’m being held accountable. So beware. Cheap theatrics are coming...

Dartoid's World
Jelle Klassan and Larry the Lobster

When in 2011 New York Congressman Anthony Weiner was forced to resign after denying and denying and finally admitting that he sent an actual photograph of his last name to a multiple women, all of America - even those who didn't receive the image - exclaimed in a collective gasp, "what a dick!"

Now, it's a darts community's member, Jelle Klassan's, that's in the limelight. And the press grabbed hold immediately.

#DartsThorn Around The World, Part 25: “No WhiteHorse In Holyhead”

After a blissful night of rest at the Boathouse Hotel in Holyhead, Wales, I had a morning to enjoy before my train left for London. It started with another full breakfast of deep fried goodies–like sausage, eggs, tomatoes and potatoes, and plenty of coffee. Then, I just stepped outside and went for a walk on the cool cloudy Welsh seashore.

#darts Deta Hedman Interview by Charis of Global Darts

Interview with Deta Hedman

Deta Hedman was born 1959 in Jamaica and together with the family moved to England when she was 13 years old. From 1990 to 1997 she played in the BDO than work commitment made it necessary for her to take a break from darts. From 1994 till the break she was the number 1 woman fo the world. 2002 she started to play on the PDC Circuit only to have to take another break due to work commitment in 2006. She returned 2009 to the BDO and immediately started to win tournament after tournament again and to return to the top ranking place in the BDO and the WDF ranking. Before Deta's first break the BDO Women Wold Championship didn't exist but after her return in 2009 she managed to qualify and qualified in 2010 and 2011 again. Till now she couldn't win the title but that seems only to be a matter of time.

#darts "Old Darters never die. They just fade away.", an interesting post on dartplayer forum

WC wrote:
"Ever wonder what happened to the massive number of competitive and recreational darters that packed public venues in the 70's and 80's?

Even if they reached a point where the pressure and regimen of leage/tournament competition was beyond them, why are they not still meeting up with friends for a pint and a friendly game or two or spending time on their board at home?

Virtually everyone here knows at least one person who was very active for years and just is not there any more. I know from personal experience because I was one of them

Why have we “just faded away?”

What can be done so that, at some point, you don’t “just fade away” too?

IMO, there are a myriad of excuses but only few actual reasons.

What are your thoughts.


The post got me thinking...
I find it interesting that darts is not much of a family game here in the USA, so much of the time when you have to focus more on family you find that darts gets set aside...

Wouldn't it be great if there could be a family "darts night" at family friendly establishments around town, or if you could hear your friends say; "I have to take the kids to their darts practice tonight." Or if at family reunions the old folks could sit around and say: "Little Annie just got select to her darts league's All-Star team!"

... if only it could be like that we wouldn't be having this conversation.

#darts Sid Waddell Passes Away... R.I.P. Sid...

DARTS commentator Sid Waddell has died after a long battle with illness. Waddell passed away peacefully just a day after his 72nd birthday following an 11 month fight with bowel cancer. A statement from his manager Dick Allix was released at midday on Sunday reading: "With great sadness, we announce that following a long illness, broadcaster and author Sid Waddell died peacefully with all his family around him late last night, Saturday August 11 2012."

Sid Waddell Classic Quotes

Sid Waddell: The life and times of one of sport's greatest voices Sid Waddell, who has died aged 72, was widely known as the "voice of darts". But as Waddell would repeatedly prove throughout his life, he was so much more than that. Broadcaster, television news producer, screenwriter, author and Bafta-winning director, the Northumberland-born Cambridge graduate was a multi-skilled man of words.

Make #Darts an Olympic Sport in 2016

"Lets try and make Darts an Olympic Sport in 2016, Share and pass this picture around to help us make it happen !!!!!"

OK. realistically it's too late for it to happen in Rio, but we need to keep campaigns such as this one alive until we get it done! Waiting another 4 years to start again will be too late! -DT

How does a sport become Olympic?
To make it onto the Olympic programme, a sport first has to be recognised: it must be administered by an International Federation which ensures that the sport's activities follow the Olympic Charter. If it is widely practised around the world and meets a number of criteria established by the IOC session, a recognised sport may be added to the Olympic programme on the recommendation of the IOC's Olympic Programme Commission.

#darts is always left out....

Cats have a go at the Olympics...

...and even they forgot about the darts!

#darts Randkings in the US... so many and how useful

"do u think we can possibly ever have one universal point system for all? n i mean all? ada,nda,ado,ndfc,and any other NORTH AMERICAN ORGS????"

Was the question posed on Improving darts! on Facebook  click here (A Members only group)

It's a hard question and many folks are looking for ways to answer the question, but the obvious issue is that a lot of folks don't think that the ADO Rankings are working. Several organizations have their own systems that attempt to address the question of who are the strongest players on the North American Dart Circuit. It appears that each of these organizations ranking systems addresses the wants and needs of the organization running the ranking system, but the key question is; "Which system appeals to the average tournament player?" But then that brings up the question of "Who is the average tournament player?" and that brings us to; "Is there really an average tournament player in North American?" Maybe there are even more questions that need to be answered...

I'm thinking the final answer will be "Only time will tell" and the ranking system proves to be most user friendly and accurate should win the day.... but I could be wrong about that... dartplayers seem to be slow to change...  if pressed I would say that ADO Rankings are more viewed than many of the newer rankings systems, and then MLDrankins is likely the next most utilized ranking system of the newer systems on offer. Only time will tell if this holds true in the future.

What do you want in a ranking system?

#darts Should Darts be an Olympic Sport?

Jacob Lewis Danny Boyle’s opening ceremony was a brilliant mess of unabashedly bonkers Britishness, but all this national character suddenly feels lacking when watching the sports on offer. You could argue that none of the events in London 2012 have a true British vibe, because every great Olympic sport we invented, we promptly exported and forgot how to play.
Take tennis for example; before Murray’s epic Sunday victory, the last time Britain won gold in tennis was 1908, way back when you could get a medal in the tug of war. Clearly what’s needed is a sport that shows off some of what Britain’s really all about: beer, pork scratchings and drunken bankers. So where the hell are the medals for darts this summer?
Hidden just off London Bridge in the square mile is Porters Lodge, the capital’s waterhole with a reputation as “darting heaven” amongst those in the know. The locals in the Lodge here are pretty pissed — pun fully intended — at their sport of choice missing out on a chance in the Olympic spotlight. The British Darts Organisation lobbied strongly for darts to be included in London 2012, but despite being recognised as a bona-fide sport in 2005 (the year London won the games) and members of the Olympic Committee attending Lakeside World Pro Darts Championships, it wasn’t added to the list.

The days where you could attend a tournament, win the singles event, and are given a huge trophy. Not to mention, I huge check (cheque) to go with it. If you were a male, you could win the Men’s Singles event at a $10k tournament and get a fat $1,000.00 check along with that huge trophy. It was like that at tournaments all over the country and a pre-requisite that your open singles event paid first place at least 10% of your total tournament payout for the win. Back then; a player could make a living with these winnings.

But due to the generosity of all of you we have given Karen and Richard a greater gift than you could imagine. Because of the donations Karen was able to bring Richard home and spend time together with the assistance of a home health aide.

THINGS are going great on the dart board at the moment.
Confidence is high, I’m scoring great, and my finishing has improved almost to a point where I’m happy with it.
For the second week running in Superleague I took the man of the match award with a 28.49 average per dart, which was also best in the county for the second consecutive week.
