Today is the day we’ll (try to) hit the bullseye in our Darts 2.0 games. We have 14 players who registered online that will be paired up at the venue to vie for the championship. Besides the coveted cash prize, we will have a special price for the champion team. More details of that after the event.
Meanwhile, if you are a SAMA member, Mapúa alumni or a friend of SAMA, please join us at 5:00pm today at Forest 2 Darts.
See you there!
Before the month of February ended, we organized the 1st Darts Night that was held at Forest2 Darts Cafe along Shenton Way. We had 24 participants forming 12 pairs for the blind doubles. The game format is 501 “best of 3” in the winners circle and 701 “do or die” in the losers circle.
Everyone was excited as the participants were a mix of both new and avid dart players. During the drawing of lots for the blind doubles, we had the chance to meet with new-found alumni and friends. The game itself re-ignited the interest in darts for some of them while others became curious and started to learn all about the game and the strategic approach to it especially when they’re down to “double ones”.
So the pairing and elimination look like this… The game started at around 6:30pm after the drawing of partners and arrangement of the teams according to age and height er… nope it was, in this writer’s observation, according to the overall darts skill of the team, because we’re among the first to be lined up hehehe…
During the games, everyone were treated to a free flow of draught beer and pika-pika or finger foods. Some of the free flow beer towers were sponsored by our SAMA members like Edwin, Shaun and Philip. It’s a good thing because our members like to drink and have fun while playing darts.
Here are some action shots of the night…
After an intense and exciting competition, we have our winners… They all received cash and medals for their respective ranks.
2nd Runner Up: Team of Al and Jericho
1st Runner Up: Team of Laurence and Edel
Champion: Team of Steve and Fred
It was an awesome night and many left wanting more and for an immediate repeat of the event. Kudos to the organizing committee led by Shaun and to our executive committee and members for their participation and for inviting other SAMA members and friends to this event.
