Passing of Vi Alderman, wife of WDF General Secretary Dave Alderman

It is with great sadness that the WDF report the passing of Vi Alderman, wife of WDF General Secretary Dave Alderman.

Vi was an integral part of darts at all levels for many years and will be missed by all of us.

Our sincere condolences and prayers are with Dave and family through this time of sorrow.

Rest in Peace Vi.

Details of funeral arrangements will be announced as they are received.

Regards.
Bill Hatter
WDF President



Bayard ‘Bud’ Brick

budI was very saddened to learn of the passing of Bayard ‘Bud’ Brick a former Executive colleague and a prominent figure in the Sport of Darts in Japan.

Bud died on Thursday 16th October 2014 after a brief stay in hospital

He was a familiar figure in WDF World Cups where he acted as the Team Manager for Japanese teams for over 25 years and represented Japan in WDF meetings and conferences providing valuable contributions to the early growth and formation of the WDF.

He was principally involved in setting up the WDF Asia/Pacific Cup encouraging national teams from the Pacific Rim countries to participate in a bi-annual event in alternate years to the WDF World Cup.

Bud became Vice-President of the WDF in October 1983 and served continuously in that position until 2000 when he was made acting President until the General Meeting in 2001.

On behalf of Japan he made a successful bid to host the 2017 WDF World Cup, which could be held in Kobe, there is no doubt his former Japanese colleagues will help to stage an event worthy of his memory.

Funeral details to be advised later.

Dave Alderman
WDF Secretary-General
