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.

It’s been almost two and a half weeks since our last event – SAMA Family Day 2016. Thanks to our SAMA members, family and friends who came and spent the day (and overnight) of (lotsa) food, drinks and fun with us.
We also had a very interesting presentation of completed projects where BIM was used. Kudos to Engr. Sonny Andalis for doing the presentation and showing the technical details involved without being boring. Both his technical and non-technical audiences voiced their appreciations and further clarified parts where they found very interesting e.g. air conditioning using solar energy, many more. We really appreciate the time you’ve spent with us. Unfortunately he didn’t have the chance to enjoy the pool afterwards. Anyway, binawi na lang niya sa food hehehe.
Now, this September, we will have two sports events – basketball and bowling.
We hope that some of our basketball enthusiasts and friends will be able to join us in this year’s 3-on-3 Basketball Games! In the tradition of our badminton event last May, this basketball games will have a similar inter-school concept. Contact us via the link or thru Mr. Shaun Acasio for details. [Update 18/Sept: 3-on-3 will be held
on 1st October in November 2016, tentatively instead of this September, due to schedule conflicts with other basketball tournaments.]
Meanwhile, our weekly bowling tournament will have it’s Masters Event this coming Sunday, 4th of September. Details are posted in our bowling group’s fb page. Cheerers and clappers are most welcome to attend. Our bowlers will surely appreciate it! Interested parties may also contact us thru our contact page or thru Mr. Rico Cordero for details.
This coming October, we will be preparing for a Seminar for our members. The details are still being finalized and we will post it soon here. [Seminar details in the recent post: Industrie 4.0]
Lastly, we are also looking for volunteers to help us with some heavy lifting activities for the Bayanihan Center in October. This will be happening in two or three weekends depending on the turn out of volunteers. More volunteers mean faster completion of the job. Interested parties may contact us thru our contact page or drop a message to Mr. Edwin or Ms. Joy for details. Everyone is welcome. Let us do this the ‘bayanihan’ way.
