May 21, 2006 – Puma hosts a nationally televised darting event. Players come from Japan to join the event. Not only are Western foreigners refused information about the event, we are not even invited to participate in the audience.
As far as the event itself goes, I have met and played against the Korean players that were in the event and have won games against all of them. Foreigners in Korea are being covertly denied access to major darting events sponsored by Puma Darts.
After continually requesting information regarding tournaments and darting events, Imagine my surprise when I turned on the TV this weekend and saw Mr. Loh, the Puma Rep. In Korea, hosting the Bullshooter II on national TV.
Here is what Mr. Peter McCormick had to say, Yes, Koreans are kind and friendly but when it comes to foreigners they are extremely prejudice. Here is the letter I received from the Puma Darts Managing Director, Peter McCormick.
Hi Karl Many thanks for your e-mail and I completely understand your frustration. I did not know that the event was going on, which is why I did not pass ion the information to you. I do not generally know about every event in every country, as there is just too many to keep track of. I have asked Mr Loh to keep in contact with you and I am not really sure what else I can do. I can keep pushing him but that is the best I can do. I do not understand enough about the Korean philosophies re darts, however I think I need to head over there to get a feel for what is going on. Again, many thanks, and if I hear anything I will pass it on to you. PETER
Now please keep in mind, this was a nationally televised event with participants coming from Japan. Mr. Loh, the Korean rep, was on TV acting as a news announcer with his big Puma Patch displayed proudly on the front of his shirt for all to see. It was a Bullshooter event, so I am getting on the horn with Arachnid next. Who has contact information with for Arachnid?
Can any of you help?
