Knock about

Have just got back from a darts meeting regarding the Summer League for which I have signed on but don’t expect to play every week as for once they seem to have a surplus of players! Each team consists of 4 men and 4 women, and you play mixed pairs (best of three) and then the guys play 1001 down and the ladies 701 down.

After electing a Captain and Treasurer, our captain paired us up randomly and we had a knock about tournament.
Only one dart went haywire from yours truly, and we won………… all of it!
Yep. I got the winning doubles on our first matches, and my partner got the winner for the final!

I’ve come home feeling quite chuffed with myself, especially as I got all my fines back from the winter league (£5.90, so 59 scores of less than 20) and A TROPHY!
Hurrah! Our team got a trophy on presentation night, a neat little star with “Bottom of Division 2” on it. Do we care being bottom? Not on your nellie.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Sounds like you’re having a great time and well done! 😀

    • the summer league is slightly different being a mixed team, but they seem a good crowd and we had some laughs. I’m looking forward to playing and intend to get some heavier darts now.
