The United Filipino Darts Club (UFDC) of Abu Dhabi strikes back with a BIG bang as they celebrate the 111th Philippine Independence with an astounding P100,000 dart tournament dubbed as ‘P100,000 Philippine Independence Day Cup 2009.’ This tournament has been made possible through the able leadership of Ding Arduo, who has never grown tired of leading the club for nearly three (3) years now despite his hectic work schedules and no nonsense ridicules from his bitter dart critics.

UFDC President Ding Arduo has this to say to all UFDC members and supporters -- “The UFDC has been very active in promoting and propagating the sport of darts from among the Filipino expatriates in the UAE from its conception in the early 90s. This time around, the UFDC leadership has opted to ‘switch’ to socio-civic undertakings aimed at helping our less-fortunate Kababayans who were not so lucky enough just like the rest of us. A portion of the proceeds of this event will be enough to repatriate one of our ‘abused’ Filipina domestic helpers who is presently suffering severe physical as well as mental anguish in the Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO) quarters in Abu Dhabi. With the game of darts being regarded as a game of smokers and beer-drinkers, this will be an opportune time for us to clear our image and let our presence be felt as compassionate group of people with great sense of responsibility for the needy sectors of the society.”

For his worthy dart critics and detractors, this is what the UFDC President has to tell – “I have been a living witness to a lot of dart clubs coming out and disappearing like a quick storm. Some have even attempted (and some are still trying, until now), to weaken the foundations of UFDC for an eventual collapse but all of them have simply gone astray. The UFDC is comprised of good men with good intentions. It is solidly backed-up by no other than the biggest and most dependable governing body of darts in the Philippines, the National Darts Federation of the Philippines (NDFP). No matter how hard the opposition is and no matter how evil these detractors may think, there is one thing I am very sure of -- they can never put UFDC down! UFDC was, is and will always be our only Dart Club .….. proudly Filipino Club.”

UFDC takes great pride with the support and approval of the Philippine Embassy in Abu Dhabi through Hon. Consul General Noel Servigon, who will also grace the event as the Guest Speaker.

This P100,000 ranking event is sanctioned and supported by the NDFP and is open to all nationalities within the UAE and the nearby GCC region. It will be held on Friday, May 29, 2009 at Arkadia International located at Marina Area, Tourist Club, Abu Dhabi, UAE. Registration starts at 12:00NN and the game time will be at 2:00PM. The event will include the following: 4-Person Team Competition -- 1001 best of 3 and Open Singles – 501 best of 3. Both events will be on a single knock-out game format. Entry fee will be AED 80.00 with one (1) free drink of choice.

President Ding Arduo wishes to extend his warmest gratitude to the following UFDC officers and members for their unconditional support in organizing this tournament: Jolo Corporal, Doc Allan Federiso, Ryan Delos Reyes, Orlan Bernardino, Mhyreen Corporal, Alex Dacay and Jess Valdez. Likewise, UFDC extends its special appreciation to NDFP Secretary General Ronnel Botor for his incessant support and inspiration to UFDC and its projects.
