Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013
The San Pedro Lions Club was the venue for the San Pedro Darts Tournament on Sunday July 21st. The all day event brought darts players from various parts of the country, and was organized by the San Pedro Darts Club. The tournament is just one of many events in preparation for this year’s national tournament.
According to Jose Mora, President of the Belize National Darts Federation and President of the Caribbean Darts Organization, the local tournament is just one of many that have been organized in various parts of the country to scout for the best darts players. “Events like these will help us to identify possible candidates that can be members of the official Belize Darts Team that will travel next year to represent the country in the USA. Belize is preparing for the Caribbean’s Darts Cup and America’s Darts Cup which will be held in Tampa, Florida USA in 2014. We are happy that the San Pedro Darts Club is supportive of the sports and the Lions Club for providing the venue as well as sponsorship to this particular event,” commented Mora.
The darts competition saw three main events – Male Singles, Open Double and Luck of the Draw. There was no female who registered for the competition. After several rounds of elimination, Omar Guerrero of San Pedro Town topped the other darts players and captured first place in the Males Singles. He was awarded a trophy and $400. Ricardo Manzano, also of San Pedro Town placed second and took home a trophy and $300. Valentino Marin of Caye Caulker Village settled for third place and took come $200.
