     Getting Sponsored

    General Dart TopicsErik writes "It's often asked by up and coming tournament players (who are faced with the ever increasing cost of travel and the limited opportunity to earn said costs back at events): how do I get a sponsor?

    My main response usually centers around this theme:

    Don't ask "how do I get a sponsor" but rather "how can I sell your products?".

     Three Times Two

    General Dart TopicsCharis writes "
     
     Once again this year I travelled to the UK Open in Bolton - better at Horwich Parkway near Bolton. The weather was outstanding - warm, blue sky, sunshine. I never had better weather here!

     But the weather had a big disadvantage too - in the Reebok stadium it was even warmer then usually, it was disagreeable warm and the hugh number of spectators made it even warmer. It was crowded more crowded then the last years I felt and it was almost impossible to really follow the matches. Only the matches on the main stage could be seen from every where. It would have been important to secure yourself a place in front on one of the boards but I was too late for this and only was able to follow the Preliminary Round matches of Bernd Roith and Maik Langendorf from row 5 or six. Both had no problems at all and were cheered by several German fans. I fought my way further on to watch Tomas Seyler who played not successful at all against Jason Wilson. Beside I followed the close match between Conan Whitehead and Roland Scholten on the main stage and saw how James Wade on one of the neighbouring got an easy win against his first round opponent.

     The long road back to 'fun' darts.

    General Dart TopicsErik writes "For the longest time I wanted to compete in BIG tournaments. The Lucky Lites Strike tournaments of the '80's were driving me to throw more and more and pushing me to improve my game constantly. Then I moved back to Canada and there I found a different driving force: Team BC. I worked at my game and tried to push myself to get better all the time.

    A return to the US and several years of off-again on-again darts found me driving for competition again and a return to tournaments (The Oregon Open in 2003 or 2004) really wet my appetite for competitive darts. I believe my match with Wade Wilcox (you'd probably read about it here years ago) was the catalyst. I knew I could beat him, I just didn't and THAT is what drives me as a competitive player: the chance to win, to beat someone I see as a better player."

     Dartslive in London

    General Dart TopicsCharis writes "
    During the last PDC World Championship in the Alexandra Palace in London four Dartslive automats were presented to the crowd.

    The Company Dartslive Asia was founded in 2009 by Steve Ngu in Hong Kong. 2011 the launch of Dartslive International followed. In the same year the “World” tournament series for the first time was played on the Dartslive soft-dart machines in Hong Kong. The series consists of eight events and the Gran Final for which the top players from the ranking and qualifiers from a special qualifying tournament qualify. The price money for the winner of the Grand Final is 1 000 000 Hong Kong Dollars, that’s around 82 723 British pound or 128 938 US Dollar – the highest price money ever for a soft-dart tournament.  It’s exceeded only by the PDC price money for the World Championship winner. Of course that aroused the interest of the dartplayers and especially a lot of players from North America traveled to Hong Kong among them players like John Part (who won an event), Ray Carver, David Fatum and Chris White. The Grand Final 2011 was won by Paul Lim which even enhanced the interest in the tournament series in the USA where Paul Lim is one of the legends of the sport and highly popular.

     My Interview With American Dart Pro Anne 'Sleepy' Kramer

    General Dart Topicsdavidsproull writes "The following is an interview I did with Anne Kramer which was originally published on my Blog.  The interview was conducted around Christmas time 2012.   It is here in it's entirety. 


    Darts is a big deal in the United Kingdom with televised games and well attended events and a strong system for producing talent at the local levels.In North America, it is certainly not so much so. While it does seem to simmer away nicely at a certain level it seems unable to shake itself free of all it's stigmas or to otherwise plant itself into the broader consciousness of North Americans or to break through in terms of popularity.That being said, there are some people in Canada and the United States who are excellent players, and some that are not so good but enjoy a good night out and everything in between.Luckily for us and for the game of darts some of those players offer the game a glimmer of hope as ambassadors of the game. One of these players, and someone who is among the higher ranked in the game is American darts professional Anne 'Sleepy' Kramer.Anne does such a good job of representing darts that she has signed on with Shot darts as one of their ambassadors.Anne was kind enough to agree to an interview and this is how it went.

     The Big Adventure - Part 3, Interview with Steven

    General Dart TopicsCharis writes "
    Was it your first long flight and did you like it?

     Yes it was my first flight liked most of it. I was very scared at first but got use to it as time went on.

    Where did you stay in Shanghai– was it some kind of hostel or a hotel?

    It was at the youth sports hostel.

    Did all youth players and coaches stay at the same place?

     All the players stayed there, but some coaches stayed at a hotel a little ways away.

    And where did you play darts? At the accommodation as well?

     Yes at the location where we slept.

     Whitlock injury puts him out of the Grandslam

    General Dart TopicsRedDragon writes "SIMON WHITLOCK has withdrawn from the William Hill Grand Slam of Darts following an operation on a broken bone in his ankle.

    The Australian was injured when he slipped last weekend during the Spanish Darts Trophy Players Championships in Benidorm.

    Having initially withdrawn from Sunday's event in Spain, further tests revealed a broken bone in the joint which required minor surgery. Whitlock, a two-time Grand Slam of Darts quarter-finalist, has now pulled out of the nine-day tournament in Wolverhampton, which begins on Saturday November 12.

    "I'm extremely disappointed to be missing Wolverhampton, but I'll be watching with the fans" said Whitlock, the 2010 World Championship runner-up.

    For my info please visit Simon's official site www.simonwhitlock.tv"
