Di's Overview

There are few people who will tell you that I know what's going on around me. However, I feel that I have to get my two cents in, after chasing down winners all weekend. As far as outstanding performances go, I would personally reward Roger Carter and Stacy Bromberg with the Di MVP awards for this tourney. Both had several first place awards, along with other money-round finishes. I was lucky enough on Saturday to talk with 13+ youth winner, Kevin Holden. Kevin also had some great results this weekend. He is 16 years old and hails from Tullahoma, TN. He told me that he enjoys shooting in the open events, as well as mens doubles (with partner Adam Cable). It seems to me that he is well prepared for the adult events, as he puts in 2 hrs. of practice everyday. His performance this weekend proves that his hard work is paying off. Next year, he will be ineligible to play in the youth events, but will give the men a run for their money! He is sponsored by Masterline Specialties, who provide him with hotel and entry fees and support his climb to the top. Goodluck, Kevin, and good darts.

I also spoke briefly with the 12 and under youth champion, TJ Thielbar. TJ comes from Swansea, SC. He has been playing for 2 years, and although he hasn't attended many tournaments thus far, he is very ambitious, and hopes to play more. He is 11 years old, and, like Kevin, is approaching the limit in his age group. I will be looking for TJ in the future, to see how he adapts to the 13+ age group. I expect that he will continue to be successful, just like dad, Pat Hewitt. Good luck to you too TJ!

That about wraps it up for the Fire on the Mountain Classic. This was my 2nd time at this tournament, and I highly recommend it. The hotel accomodations (Holiday Inn Sunspree Resort), and tournament staff are exceptional, and made the weekend all the more pleasant. I would just like to close by saying "Thank You" to tournament director, Steve Reynolds, Don Stanley, and especially to Sandy Marshall, who helped me to compile this information. Also, a special thanks to Teresa Johnson and Ray Carver for being terrific partners, and to Doreen and Darrell Berry, for keeping it interesting!
