Oh boy, the team did well tonight, beating the opposition 11 – 3, our best result of the season so far.
My partner and I won our games 3 – nil, and I chalked the men’s 1001 down, which was one of the fastest games I’ve known. The lads hit some good scores, and the other side did too, but what made it so quick was the fact that I can add up and by the time they retrieved their darts from the board, I was confirming their score and taking it off! Initially they were surprised, but after a few throws, they just got on with the game.
I can’t get on with an electronic scoreboard though, and much prefer the old chalk.
Apparently the team we played in the ladies league who were such sticklers for timing and had offended the landlady of the pub they were playing for, have two teams in the summer league and currently hold the bottom two positions (apparently they will be playing for another establishment in the winter). Still, it’s early days.
It was fun tonight, and my neighbour’s husband collected us, so Hubby could have an early night and rest up.
We passed ‘the gates ‘ and they do look good!
Time for bed now. Hopefully will catch up with everything tomorrow (er, later today)
