Frank’s theme this week is ROUND.
I’m thinking of round tuits, but this picture isn’t mine, so I’ll come up with something else.
There are loads of round objects in everyday life, saucepans, baking tins, plates, cups, saucers, and we often talk of a round of golf or a round of drinks don’t we. I don’t indulge in either as I don’t see the point of hitting a ball and then looking for it all day, and as I’m tee-total, even though I play darts for a pub, I don’t buy drinks for anyone apart from my team colleague who kindly gives me a lift to away matches, so I buy hers.
Dartboards are round of course, and I often wonder as I am trying valiantly for that blasted double 1 if I would have the same trouble should it be in any other position on the board.
Apparently a man called Brian Gamlin designed the numbering system on a dartboard. You can read about that here rather than me repeat myself as I’ve used this info twice now in other posts.
My accuracy (doubles excluded, sigh) is improving though, and on five occasions now I have done a Robin Hood, three at home and two in matches.
The barrels and stems of my darts are round, the tips are rounded and my current flights are tulip shaped.
The smallest double on the board is the bullseye. And that’s round too!
