New darts board takes aim

A new crop of dart-lovers will look to capitalize on the recent success of the national team.

On Saturday the Cayman Darts Association held its annual general meeting and awards ceremony.

Corner Pocket, a venue for play during the season, saw some 80 people come out to show support and enjoy refreshments.

The first part of the evening saw local dart players awarded for their performance over the last season.

Key Speaker for the evening and former President of the Cayman Darts Association Emerald Mohammed and a Cable and Wireless representative gave out the awards.

Cable and Wireless were the title sponsors for last season. Cayman Distributors are expected to assume that role for the upcoming season.

Among the awards given out were for most tons, highest finish and for overall team winners.

All of the big names on the dart scene were present to receive numerous awards on the night.

Among them were Hank Ebanks, Earl Smith and new Caribbean champion Edsell Haylock.

In addition national team members were given trophies to commemorate their fourth place finish at the recent Caribbean Championship in Trinidad.

Thereafter a new executive committee for the darts association was selected.

Returning to their positions for another term were Arthur Ebanks as President and Philip Parsons as Vice President.

Michelle Cullen was nominated as Treasurer and Miriam Rodriguez was chosen as Secretary.

Cayman Darts Association President Arthur Ebanks said he felt the evening went well and there will be many things happening for the coming local darts season.

In addition to being in talks with more local sponsors, Ebanks said the local darts league will see a new format and divisions.

‘We’re going to make an ‘A’ and ‘B’ league,’ Ebanks said. ‘The B league will be more relaxed and will serve as an introduction to the game. The A league will be more competitive.

‘At the end of each season the two top teams in the B league will go up to the A league while the two bottom teams in the A league will move down to the B league.’

The dates for the start of the new league were not available at press time.

However they are expected to be published in the near future.
