    Oh snaps--looks like I might have to put Isaac in charge of the PressyPally Ton80 contest updates! Let's see...that's 21-19-7 now!

    But, Iceman, don't forget Mr. Smooth--he's got 2 in about a thousandth the playing time of you, me and Bonesy. Wink

    Hey hold on now--the Thorn Retort was created so my reader could shower me with flattering compliments! Not for sarcastic cyber smack! Wink

    So, if you wanna be the Ton80 scorekeeper for me Icicle, you have to be unbiased...save the tough talk for the Pressy Pally. Very Happy

    My compliment to smack talk ratio is still off the freakin' charts, Thorn.

    But wait, how was my post any more sarcastic smack talk than CB's post directed at me? hehe

    Fine, fine, I shut up now.

    That's true Zeke, good point--you are one of, if not the biggest Thorn Report fan, not to mention leading honorary Portland Thorn member...

    The donation was from the owners of Soft Tipper, our one and only loyal Portland dart supply store


    Acutally, Soft Tipper isn't the only dart supply store in the Portland Metro area. On the west side is Billiards & More, near Washington Square in the same building as Les Schwab. They have a great selection and if they don't have what you want, Casey will order it for you and most of the time you will have the supplies within days. He is a great person and has standard, posted hours and is actually open during those times.

    Not to dismiss the support that Soft Tippers has given us (the dart community) in many endeavours, including (but not limited too Smile ) donations for the Oregon Open, Darts for the Troops and Thorns latest project.

    Sorry Adam, but that poor old gent that showed up late (and who is featured in your last photo) is the guy who has to wait until everyone is gone so he can lock the doors.

    This was his third year in a row for him. Hopeful that we'll be done by midnight, but knowing that it will probably be 2:30am instead. Wink

    If they have any normal sized doors in your rooms you could always take a board and an over-the-door hanger with you. Not good for mixing with others, but can tide you over none-the-less! Wink

    Sucks about Catalina - I think I would ask for a discount or something when I got home ("It was the MAIN reason I went on the cruise!!!" Twisted Evil ).

    Looks that way in the picture doesn't it CB?! Maybe, we definitely played the left board. Wink

    hey folks, I just gotta share this because I'm beaming with self-admiration...

    I just got done rafting Hell's Canyon on the Snake River on the border of Idaho and Oregon...which happens to lead straight into the land of SEWA headquarters...

    It'll be in the Thorn Report eventually, but for now, here's a teaser trailer of the two biggest rapids, "White Sheep" and "Granite" if you're in a googling mood--yours truly is sitting front right, you can glimpse me once or twice...

    My crewmate had the HD hi-speed helmet cam rolling...it was so sweet...

    Click this: http://www.vimeo.com/15443226

    and a teaser pic...here's Ryan dropping into White Sheep, Class IV+...

    Thanks to darttalker as well for his post that got things started...

    I highly recommend people check out the site, if you're at all interested in travel and darts..

    Adam Im bummed your moving the report, but understand the exposure you will get at darts around the world. I also think its a great idea as i used to miss alot of them because they were located in the PADA area. Good for you, look forward to reading you there.

    Thanks so much Skiz!

    ...but remember, I'm not leaving, just moving the blog to a new home! As always, I want to continue to enjoy being part of the discussions here at SEWA.

    By the way, I thought my first post on the new site would go in today, but it looks like it will be right after the next podcast they do (with JohnnyK!) in a day or two or few...so please stay tuned.

    I'm not planning on it Skiz. But, maybe--if you mods think it's ok--I could post the link and/or a mini-blurb when I post new ones on DATW? Or, maybe I could do something with this retort thread...

    Any ideas?

    What I don't want to do is lose any of my readers in the transfer or take any readers away from SEWA--I'm actually hoping more people continue to find, follow and enjoy both sites (and all the excellent dart websites and blogs out there that so many people have created, from Dartoid to Darttalker, and SleepyK to Charis, and so many more, not to mention the sites of pros, assosciations and dart publications).

    I just wanted to make it clear that I still plan on participating on SEWA.
    And I hope you all bookmark my blogs new location. Very Happy

    I like reading your blog, i know there are other who do as well. I will miss it posted on SEWA if you dont post it. I prefer it, i like the way the pictures and your words tell the tale though the eyes of this forum. Ill follow either way, but prefer the Thorn Report appearing here as it always has and over there as well. Spread it out, you dont have to stop your Report here. Unless its to much?

    Well thanks again! I'll think about it... Very Happy I don't think the DATW team would mind--like me, they want to spread the game and make more connections between groups and people.

    Hopefully more folks will chime in here the next few days, with their thoughts on it.

    Ill tell you what, people being exposed to the Thorn Report here, there or anywhere is a good thing. I appreciate your Report and look forward to reading it. Exposure is a good thing. I hope you keep your roots and it expands from the exposure you get from the other site. Its all good. As usual i cant wait for the next Thorn Report.

    WOW!! I'm sorry to hear that those here at SEWA will no longer be able to enjoy "The Thorn Report". I've followed it from Day 1 and have loved every bit of it. Of course, I will "tune in" no matter where you decide to go with this, but it is still a bit shocking.

    Anyway, I just wanted to say how much I enjoy your reports, and I wish you well wherever you decide to take this, and I wish you much success. I also enjoyed the interview you gave. Good job and good luck.

    I think posting mini blurbs here would be a wonderful thing if you would consider it.
