Saul in UK for World Masters
Saskatchewan Youth Darts is proud to be part of the sensational Saul Arndt show that makes its way to the fabled Lakeside near London, England for the boys' World Masters. Saul will join a field of 88 boys from around the world.
In the picture, SDA Finance Officer Bev Roth is presenting Saul with a cheque for $1,000 to help him on his way.
So far this year, the 16-year-old Reginan won the doubles at Youth Nationals partnered by Jaymes Swenson; won the NDFC Americas Cup qualifier; then took a trip to Barbados for the Americas Cup this summer, and won that too!
Saul is accompanied by his parents to the BDO's showpiece event. Let's wish him all the best! We'll let you know any results as soon as we get them.

He defeated Reginan youth phenom Saul "The Show" Arndt in the final, with finishes of 114, 102 and 80 to seal the deal.

AGM elects Elaine Walker interim SDA president
Our Association has a familiar face taking over as interim president. Elaine Walker was elected by acclamation at the 2016 AGM in Regina September 10 and will serve until the end of the 2016-17 season, when she is expected to run again for the 2017-19 term.
Other executive members took up new positions, including Shauna Grassing as Youth Director and Shawn Solomon as Member-at-Large.
The 43 members present observed a minute's silence for the passing of members and loved ones including sitting president and great friend of Canadian darts Pat Copeman.
Warm congratulations were offered to youth player Saul Arndt for winning the America's Cup youth title in Barbados earlier this summer. Saul will now go on to represent Canada at the World Masters in England. Let's all wish him the best!
A darts tournament was also played at the Eagles Club, the AGM's new venue for this year. Steve Kristjansson of Saskatoon won in men's with a victory over Karsten Larsen. Women's singles goes to Bonnie Lapierre of Regina, who defeated Elaine Walker in the final. We've lost track of how many times Bonnie has won the AGM. Suffice it to say it's easier to count the times when she didn't win it! Way to go Hammer!
Men's doubles winners are Saul Arndt and his partner Eric Matheson, who defeated Shawn Solomon and Cliff Culbert in the final. Eric got a mention during the meeting for having broken the record for the number of 180s hit in one season. Eric hit the maximum 60 times in 2015-16.
Women's doubles winners were – no prizes for guessing – Bonnie Lapierre and Elaine Walker. Judy Cleaveley and Aspen Hall were runners up.
