On a personal note I am very pleased and honoured to say that I have been invited by Jean Hayward (Torunament Director of the EDO) to become an Official of The England Darts Organisation (EDO). My first event was to be on Saturday 14th September but I have commitments to the YDP so my first outing as an EDO Official will be at The Golden Dart Event in Selsey on 6th to 8th December. It^s an experience I am very much looking forward to, a chance for myself to work alongside and view another organisation from the inside and a hope to move forward and upwards in the world of darts.
