Darts Diary is back after a brief respite, balik darts uli my passion and my kaligayahan.

International News: Pinoy darters continue to dominate the world’s soft tip darts
Hongkong - The World Soft Tip Stage 7 was an all Filipino show.  Ian Perez won a classic and memorable decision game over arch rival Lourence Ilagan.  Boie Parfan made it 3 Pinoys in the top four. Ian’s epic victory made it 5 Filipino champions in the last 7 stages of The World Soft tip tourney following the 2 stage victories of Ilagan and Briones. Will Perez meet the challenge of having a 2 stage victory– abangan sa Nov 3, the last stage before the GRAND FINALS.

Meanwhile in Malaysia, Prussian Arceno won the singles title in the International Malaysian Open. Andy Villamor cops 4th place.

Local News:  Darterong Pinoy 2013
Darterong Pinoy was a huge success despite typhoon Santi’s rains.  Panglao Boy Ricky “The Silent Assassin” Mijares is the Men’s Singles Champion winning over Koronadal boy and Tres Marias player EJ Rebollos.  Team Terton won the 4-man team event composed of Bobby Baldog Concepcion, Now you see him now you don’t Ching Saez,  every Darterong Pinoy lang naglalaro Jon Cordero,  and the much more silent than Ricky Mijares - Patti dela Passion. The Seniors Champion is Elmer Maranan of Lucena, the president of Quezon Darters Association and a DCP rated player since 1996.  Di na importante isulat sino ang runner-up sa seniors.  Ako yun.  Huhuhu. Complete winners and the event write-up will posted in the NDFP website, ayokong unahan sila baka di na ma-upload and diary ko. Hehehe.


Tidbits:  CDO darters, 15 strong, came and competed in DP.  Panalo sila sa pinaka maingay na groupo category. Dartfather’s Peter Pimentel, Wena Five and Ronnaps were very entertaining.  Ang babaw ng kaligayahan at maski walang kwentang estorya humahalakhak. Naka handa naman si Areneo Boy Pedro Penduko ng efficascent oil para sa kabag ng tiyan.  Had a great time with you guys.   
There were a couple of new sightings in DP.  Ding Sumulong appeared in the venue wearing a Taekwondo Kata attire. Slim and looking fit.  Medyo malnourished lang tingnan.  Pero merong pukol pa rin. Nilaglag pa nga nila one of  Davao’s  feared doubles team........... Taytay’s  Lhet Santos fresh from Japan  is still looking pretty and gorgeous. Naka dalawang beso beso lang ako..........And Oya Rapid Fire Martin is now sporting a balbas sarado look.  Ayaw munang mag-ahit para astig ang dating at maging look alike ni Oyo Boy Sotto.........  Ang lamig ng kamay ni Jaypee De Tablan sa stage when he led the Oath of Sportsmanship. Mas ninerbiyos pa siya kaysa decision game of a finals dart game. 

The much maligned Phil. Qualifier goes off at Tiendesitas Mall, Pasig City on Wednesday, Oct. 16 -17, 2013. Ang organizer ay ang Toby’s Sports at hindi ang DCP but the Tournament Director is Errol Magtubo.  

The next big tournament is the P120T FDAMDI 5th anniversary tournament on Oct. 18-20 at Felis Resort, Davao City. Ang venue ay isang 1st class resort at kung ikaw ay tapos na sa laro mo at naparami ka na ng nainom, pwede ka na lang gumapang papunta sa kwarto mo. At siyempre, 1st class din ang mga organizers dito like Boy Gludo, Bebot Villa Abrille, an excellent darter during the 80’s , Cris “The Beer Float” Sugala and the ever deadly Magic Polo national player Longlong Longyapon. 

Is there a third force looming in the horizon?  It is still in the planning stage and they just had its first meeting last week, Di pa nga sila sure sa pangalan nila.  First it was Tmvoi, then Tamod and then Tamad. The moving force behind are Sec Gen Buddy Mesias, the loaded Mark Chua and Tres Marias Reggie The founder Francisco.  Firstly, they want to assure the 2 big organizations DCP and NDF that they are here to help them and not to start picking a fight. Their top priority is for the upliftment of the sport of Darts and for the darters.  Abangan......
