Well we’ve had our first darts match against last year’s champions, the steely Timsbury ladies and as expected we lost 3-1 but acquitted ourselves well against a strong team. Sally’s double 3 to take the first game will go down in the history of Bath Buns as a classic especially as she had cunningly lulled them into a false sense of security by missing the board completely a few times before.
We sensed a change in atmosphere from the Timsbury ladies and a tightening of resolve from the reigning champions not to go out to a bunch of no-hopers. Maybe we shouldn’t have paraded Sally on our shoulders round the pub and conga-ed down Daniel Street because they took advantage of us being all of a tizzy and brought their A game to claw back eventual victory by actually being good at darts.
All in all, a good start.
Many thanks to able scorers Lindsay and Andrea who did an excellent job- including sorting out a recount. Finally thanks to Karen’s husband Lee and his cheer leading routine. It was very brave of him to chant and wave pompoms in a packed pub.
Don’t forget our next practice on Thursday 9th April – email firstname.lastname@example.org if you fancy coming along!
