The Darts Match !

Friday 11th December 2009

Today saw the inaugural Invitation Darts Challenge at the Church End Brewery at Ridge lane near Atherstone, Warks. The Thursday Club had been challenged by the Brewers and friends to a Darts match. It turned out to be a 2 hour epic. The Thursday club got off to a solid start and established an early lead but the Brewers clawed their way back into it and it was all square by the time the first Ham rolls were consumed. 180s were few and far between, in fact anything over 50 was considered outstanding. Sid Wadell would not have been impressed. Indeed, quite a few players were happy to see all 3 darts hit the board and not the door.

Despite the best efforts of the Brewers, the Thursday club who were taking the event very seriously, began to show their class and pull away. Despite the tactic of trying to ply us with Pork pie and ale (which was very much appreciated) the Thursday club kept their concentration to win the match. The winners were presented with a bicycle as a trophy of their achievement. Which was nice.
Thanks to everyone at the Brewery for setting it all up, it was a lot of fun.
