Next Stop? Philippines and the WORLD Final

Well... it is just days away from the next trip that includes a stop in the Philippines to play the WDF double singles event, The Philippines International Darts Open(steel) ,being sponsored by the legendary Boxing World Champion Manny Pacquiao.  After playing the first weekend there I am going up to visit another area of the Philippines to practice with TEAM ONE from the Philippines to get ready for the WORLD FINAL held in Hong Kong Dec 18th.

If you have not figured it out by now, the Philippines is quickly becoming the #1 place to crank out top dart players.  They have it down to a science and put a lot of work into creating top players.... Just look at the world Ranking for the Pro Soft tip tour HERE  I am fortunate to be invited to have a working vacation and fine tune my game with such talented players prior to the $1,000,000 Hk First place prize that DARTSLIVE is putting up for the winner.

The final to be held Dec 18 will host 64 players, 48 direct in and 16 qualifiers to chase after the largest prize in soft tip history.  Suppose to shown on ESPN 3 I believe but will defintitely be shown on Ustream.com Dec 18 starting at 10 am Hong Kong time. (7pm Central 9pm Eastern)  The final 8 matches will be played on the large stage that will cost a bit over $100 US just to watch unless you are DARTSLIVE member which in that case is still about $60 US.  Will be a exciting day for someone.....
I am excited for the trip to the Philippines as I have thought about going in the past but at times can be a dangerous place of sorts for strangers.  I am lucky to have friends living there that are meeting me and ensure I get where I need to be.  The first 4-5 days will be in Manila then I am headed up the coast to a place called Olongapo.  Eddie Engel, of Team One, has a bar up there and invited me to go up there to prepare for a few days and see the sights in the area.  The place I am staying is right on the sea and I am very excited to go.

Just finishing up a 48hr straight long shift giving me one day to get all my stuff ready to head out Wed am.  It is a bit of a journey as I fly from Phoenix to LA, LA to Hawaii, Hawaii to Guam, Guam to Manila....I am a bit concerned as only have a hour to catch the connection in Guam but how big can the airport be??  I just hope its on time :)

I am in the final part of talks with two new companies to form a partnership that will hopefully take all of us to new heights.... like always a few last minute details to hammer out.

 We just did our first live stream this last weekend and it was a learning event and have already began purchasing better equipment for the next ones.  I have a vision that hopefully we can have exciting darts on TV as I know it can work... just takes a bit of work.

So stay tuned ;) and I hope to blog when I am away every few days :) Here's hoping the focus and form continue through the WORLD Finals.... :)
