10 – 4

No, this isn’t the script from a cop show or a military assignment transmission.
This was the darts result last night, and two of the points scored were by yours truly!
We were away to the team currently top of the league, and it showed.
The board was on a platform, but the oche was four inches below so it took a bit of getting used to having to climb a step to retrieve your darts. One of our players found that difficult so I got them for her, having a good aerobic workout in the process!
We had four ladies turn up so we each had a game and five guys, so one dropped out of the pairs so that they could play in the men’s 1001 gallon.

We lost 3 – 0 in the first game, won 2 – 1 in the second and lost 3 – 0 in the third. The guys on the home team were hitting some terrific scores, including a 180 and 2 140s, and the ladies were doing alright too with 117 and 133.
My partner and I were playing last, and although we lost our game 2  – 1, it could have gone either way as both sides were down to a double each time.  I didn’t hit anything over a hundred, but had several scores in the 70s and 90s. We needed double 10 which I missed hitting double 6 instead, so got double 4 as well. One way of doing it!
Supper was sausage and chips with mushy peas. I left the diet at home and will play catch up for the rest of the week.

Two of our team won half the raffle prizes, and then it was the ladies gallon.
The player in front of me scored 124 and my response was 95 as I went down south and played the 19s. The girls played really well on both sides and we needed double 18 to their 5. I scored a single 18 with my first dart, landed a good marker with my second, and my third went sweetly into double 9. Hurrah!

The lads were not so lucky. OK, they got hammered and needed 383 when the other side got their double. As I said, the home team are the league leaders and it showed!
Never mind. It was a good night and we left in high spirits. We’re home next week and after that there is only one team match left to play.
I’m not sure when the Winter league starts, but there’s the AGM for that this weekend so I shall be getting my Captain’s hat out of mothballs.

About pensitivity101

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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.
