Another Life Member Lost but Not Forgotten

It is with sadness that the NDFC announces the passing of one of our Life Members - Phyllis Palmer. Phyllis worked with the New Brunswick executive back in the early 2000’s.  She was dedicated to darts in New Brunswick and was presented an NDFC Life Membership in 2005. 

Our condolences to Phyllis's family and friends.

Important Notice About Quebec Open

IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING THE 2019 QUEBEC OPEN

This notice is being sent on behalf of the Quebec Darts Association and the organizers of the Quebec Open tournament to be held in January 2019. For the past few years, the BDO has insisted that all BDO ranked events must be applied for by the province and the tournament organizers. As the NDFC Ranking Officer, it is my responsibility to send in these applications. 

This is to inform everyone that the 2019 Quebec Open was denied ranking by the BDO unless Quebec changes their date.  The BDO informed us that the dates were interfering with the dates of the World Darts Professional Championship event and that they could not accept the application for the 2019 Quebec Open if the dates were not changed.  Although the World Darts Professional Championship has been on these same dates for many years and the Quebec Open has been on the same weekend for over 30 years, it is hard to understand why it is now a problem this year. This BDO event is attended by very few Canadian players and it is a shame the remainder of Canadian players will not receive the invitation to the BDO World Masters. 

Some players have suggested the Quebec Open change their dates. Events like the Quebec Open take a lot of time to organize, the event has been held on the same date for many years, it is difficult to find venues for a new date with little notice (hotels are booked at least a year in advance), the NDFC calendar is already full and players book flights well in advance when they find seat sales. 

The BDO has been advised that the 2019 Quebec Open will not be moving their date and ranking has been denied. With this year being a World Cup year, many Canadian players will be traveling to ranked tournaments. The Quebec Open Singles Champions will be expecting to receive an invitation to the BDO World Masters. This is not the fault of the Quebec Darts Association, but strictly a decision made by the BDO. 

The Quebec Darts Association wants to ensure that all players across Canada know that the BDO Logo will not be on the poster and the Singles Champions will not receive an invitation to the World Masters. Regardless of that, it is hoped that many Canadian players will participate at the 2019 Quebec Open regardless of the BDO’s decision.

NDFC Ranking Officer
 

#ThanksCoach

  

September 22 to 30, 2018 is National Coaches Week!

This week is a time to celebrate the tremendous positive impact coaches have on athletes and communities across Canada. This week is an opportunity to recognize coaches for the integral role they play in sports. If you've had a coach that has made a significant impact on you, take a few minutes to say #ThanksCoach #MerciCoach.

The NDFC would also like to use this week to heighten awareness of our National Dart Coaching Certification Program

Congratulations to the NDFC's Newest Life Member

Congratulations Glen Walker! 

Because Glen was unable to attend the 2018 National Awards Banquet, Provincial Director Kim Clawson presented Glen with his NDFC Lifetime Membership at their meeting this week in Winnipeg. 

The Manitoba Darts Association nominated Glen Walker in recognition of the valued contribution he has provided to the sports of darts in Manitoba. His positions have ranged from the zone to the provincial level, including being a Coach, the Manitoba Treasurer, the Rules and Regulations Director and now holds both positions on the Board.

Glen is still an active player, continues to meet all the challenges that the Board has given him and he continues to be an important part of the Association and is greatly appreciated. 

It is with pleasure that the NDFC and the Manitoba Darts Association award a Lifetime Membership to Glen Walker!

New NDFC Facebook Group Settings

NDFC has revised their Facebook settings to allow members in the group to post their own event notices, results, photographs, etc. This will help minimize the workload on the NDFC Executive and it will provide provincial bodies, tournament organizers and individuals to get their posts up on the NDFC Facebook Group in a timely manner.

The posts will continue to have to be approved by one of our Group Administrators before the post will appear on the NDFC Facebook Page, so please remember to keep the posts relevant to darts and dart events, results, etc. No requests for posts will be approved for advertising of products or services or content that is deemed inappropriate.

If you're not yet a member of the NDFC Facebook Group, ask to join now (https://www.facebook.com/groups/113225318718761/)

America's Cup Team Canada 2018

 

Team Canada travelled to Trinidad & Tobago to participate, once again, at the 9th WDF Americas Cup.  As we were going into this tournament to defend our titles from 2016, the team was full of enthusiasm and could not wait to hit the boards.  Team Canada had a fantastic run right through to the very last game that was played against our rivals, Team USA.  I can tell you, I was proud to be Canadian!!

  • Canada played in Group A with the Brazil, Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados & Cayman.
  • Canada won the Group with 42 points beating Brazil 11-2, then Barbados 10-3, then Trinidad & Tobago 8-5, and Cayman 13-0.
  • In the semi finals, Canada met the Bahamas Team and with a win, we advanced to the finals against team USA.
  • The finals, Canada against the USA, finished with a score of 7-5 in favour of the USA.

As for the WDF Americas Cup Singles event, Maria Mason and Danna Foster (both from Canada) played against each other in the semi-finals with Sandy Hudson and Lisa Ayers (both from USA) playing the other semi-finals.  Maria Mason and Sandy Hudson faced each other in the finals with Sandy being crowned the 2018 Champion.

In the Men’s section, Darryl Christie was defeated in the top 32 and Willie Covey lost in the top 16.  The winner of the Men’s Singles event was Robin Albury of the Bahamas.

The Youth Event this year was better than we had expected.  In 2014, there were only a handful of youth players. However, this year’s event had a total of 12 youth, 7 girls and 5 boys from Canada, Cayman Islands, Barbados, Bahamas, Trinidad & Tobago, Brazil and Turks & Caicos.  Once again, our Canadian Youth were on top of their game.  

In the Boy’s event, Donovan Pilon played four rounds and won every leg.  This gave him a place in the finals against Adrian Anglin of the Cayman, with Donovan coming out the winner of this event.

In the Girls Event, Hayley Crowley played six rounds and she also won all her legs and finished in first place.  In the finals Hayley played against, and defeated, Kiana Hicks of the Bahamas.

The closing ceremonies saw all teams assembled one more time.  The awards presentation saw Canada take 5 of the awards that were handed out, plus medals for each member of the team.

Youth Boys Champions:   Donovan Pilon
Youth Girls Champions:   Hayley Crowley
Most 180s for Women:   Maria Mason
High Check Out for Men:   Darryl Christie (160)
Low Dart Game / Men:   Darryl Christie (11 darts)
America's Cup Women's Singles Runner-up:   Maria Mason
America's Cup Women's Singles Joint 3rd:   Danna Foster

 

I would like to say thank-you to our shirt sponsor, Specialty Sports Supplies and Charles Menezes, for their continued support.  Also, a huge thank-you to the youth chaperones, Wanda Chandler and Norm Pilon, as well as the youth coach, Bryan Perrault, for being there for our youth players and guiding them through this new adventure.

Canada should be very pleased with the results of our team; I know that I am.  These six players shot incredible darts for three days and, although we did not retain the Americas Cup Trophy, we did win the hearts of many.  I would like to thank our amazing Team Canada: Darryl Christie, Willie Covey, Maria Mason, Danna Foster, Donovan Pilon and Hayley Crowley. You are great dart players and even more, you are amazing people.

Mary Dezan
Team Canada Manager
