Manifestation of Support and Affiliation
to the National Darts Federation of the Philippines
Drafted by Jong Gonzales
President Mindanao Archipelago Darts Federation (MADF)
National Dart Foundation of the Philippines is in itself already
an institution. Its goals and profound achievements can never be
surpassed nor denied. It has shifted traditional and divisive approaches
to dart development through a proactive and more holistic way of
building a strong foundation and community of darters. It has brought
Philippine darts into the mainstream of sports and into the world
of professional darters. It has changed the image of darts and provided
a new and clearer vision and strong commitment for the growth of
darts. It has set standards of excellence, continuously improving
them and virtually leading darters to achieve their best competence
with high hopes and world-class aspirations. It has taken roots,
it has grown, and viably sustaining.
We are the fruits of the National Dart Foundation of the Philippines.
We were created and nurtured and naturally evolved into a vibrant
infrastructure national in scope. We were led and are respected.
We were bestowed with moral integrity and moral authority to lead.
We were brought to the forefront of leadership – by ourselves,
our respective organization, association, and through regional federations.
We believe that it is now time for the National Dart Foundation
of the Philippines to preserve itself as an institution. Given the
cohesive and truly representational dart organizations from all
corners of the country, we believe that the Foundation shall now
be formed into a National Federation – a federation of our
organizations, a federation of competence, friendship and respect.
Thus, we, the darters and representatives of our respective dart
organization, do hereby manifest to support and put our stake to
the formation of the National Dart Federation of the Philippines.
As a Federation, we will propagate, we will advocate, we will build
consensus, we will accommodate, we will develop more competitive
and world-class darters, and we will bring modest pride and great
honor to ourselves, our families, our place, our organizations,
and to our country.
This manifestation of support and affiliation starts this 2nd day
of December 2007 and onwards.
