The just finished Tsadarts 2013 tournament was considered over-all as a rousing success. There was a huge turn-out of players with FDAMDI of Davao sending a huge 14 man delegation, led by Davao’s legendary kingpin, Bebot Villa Abrile and the multi talented Art Longlong Longyapon. Pagadian sent not only one tower but a twin tower combo composed of 6'1 Tata Paglinawan and a former PBA player 6'4 Barry Duenas. Butuan darters came by the busloads and led by gwAPO and frat brod Dante Aparri.  Darwin ” Big Boy” Macaso ay dumating din at nag bitbit ng kanyangpangkat na taga Bayugan, Agusan at nagpakita ng gilas papatunay na me asim pa ring rated darter. Iligan, Cebu, Negros, Bukidnon, Gensan, South Cotabato, Zamboanga and the Metro Manila crack darters all came and played fantastic darts that weekend.

This is the partial list of winners. For final result and pictures, please wait for the post very soon.

Attendance was at an all time high for the 3-day dartfest here in Mindanao. Despite the never ending complaints and some violations, issues and disagreements, The Dartfathers starring Peter “The Tomahawk” Pimentel, Ronnie ”Al Capone” Napone, Jojo “The Golden Voice” Gaane, We Na and Bobby "The Reverend" Lacuste with the help of NDF's Marvin Orlina and others, the organizer of the event run the whole show smoothly, fairly and competently. A big round of applause to all of you guys.

It’s Churvah Time. The Regina’s Darts Club, the pioneering group that brought darts to CDO in the 80’s is back in the mainstream darts circuit. Led by their Godfather Tonette Jaranilla, and other oldtimer buddies Abe Fajardo, Toto Tuvilla, Ruben Two front teeth in our big table, we went back thru time and had a wonderful time reminiscing on the glorious escapades in the past. Hik! senglot na kami, di pa nagsimula ang tournament. Eh ano pa, di Nga Nga kaming lahat na matanda. Regina’s DC is holding a dart’s league the Liga de Oro at Inilog Resto Bar every Monday and Tuesday and a doubles tournament on Fridays. Go check them out when you pass by CDO……

The cerebral leader of darts in South Cotabato and now also of the Caraga Region, Jong Gonzales came well prepared for this tournament. On Friday, he travelled early from Koronadal together with buddy Ian Perez and boarded the bus at 6am.They arrived in Bulua at 6:30pm, a 12 hour trip and just in time for the drawing of lots. He went directly to the practice boards, at di na nag chika chika sa mga tables. He shot Tonners and Ton40s. Matindi pa rin at na impressed ako kasi long time no see pero palaban pa rin ang pukol. His announced partner was Danny Jimenez and Jong excitedly went to the assigned board and continued hitting those booming triple 20s. Wala doon ang partner niya. Maya-maya, narinig na lang niya “Last call Danny Jimenez”…Calling Danny Jimenez, calling once, calling twice, default! OMG! Sayang ang pukol ko! At ang malayong biyahe ko! Tumakbo si Jong sa tournament director’s table at nag suggest maski si Tito Soncuya na lang ang kapalit, tatangapin ko siya ng buong galak. No way, says the TD. Loss by default. Decision is final. Jong had only to shake his head and use his ton 40’s on another day in their epic battle with Gensan’s new wonder boy, DJ Tongcopanon. Sa next issue na yun. …….

Dito sa Tsadarts, di ko narinig ni minsan si Cris Salinas sa kanyang patented na malakas na sigaw sa mga critical games. Na overpower ang sigaw niya sa isang darter ng CDO na si Doctor Flacco aka Jonathan Mondejar. Watch out for him! Malakas ang sigaw at meron pang kasabay na talon, karate chops, gangnam moves, aerobics dance na hinalo halo na di mo maintindihan. Pero take note, isa siya sa magaling na darter dito at kinakatakutan.Matakot ka talaga kasi di mo malaman kung tunay na huramentado na pala yun. Hahaha. Peace Doc….. Meron pang 2nd article coming on the explosive Tsadarts 2013 tournament. Puso mo, Jogans
