NATIONAL AMBASSADORS TEAM FOR 2000 NAMED
Lim Gets Award; Road to Vegas Begins in April
Anaheim, Cal. The American Darts Organization
extends congratulations to the 2000 National Ambassadors. This
group of individuals achieved the highest championship point totals in 1999 among male and female darters. The
women's representatives-Stacy Bromberg, Nevada; Marilyn Popp, Connecticut; and Lori Verrier, Oregon-have shown
the strength of their skills over time and collectively have represented the U.S. overseas in dozens of events. .
The men's team consists of representatives
from across the U.S.: Paul Lim, California; Dan Lauby, Indiana; Dieter
Schutsch, Nevada; David Marienthal, New Jersey; Luis Martinez, Texas; and Steve Brown, Missouri. Schutsch and
Martinez are newcomers to the group.
All six players who represented the U.S. at the last World Cup in South Africa are represented in this group.
The National Ambassadors Team will earn
trips to the Accudart North American Open where they will compete
in the ADO's championship events prior to the open tournament. The Board of Directors will finalize plans for those
activities next weekend at their semi-annual board meeting.
The honor made Lim the second American
darter to go down in the annals of sports history for their
accomplishments in the 20th century. In December, Stacy Bromberg was named one of the top 50 athletes in the state
of Nevada by Sports Illustrated.
The East-West All-Star Match also will
have a new twist or two this year that the board believes will add
excitement to the event. Final details will be completed next weekend at the board's semi-annual meeting and announced
