I guessed as much but did not want to say anything until I was sure, Paul is my Mum's partner :)

Hope you are all well.

Tell her to say hello  to me and introduce herself.
--------------------------------------------------------

Night Owl, last Tuesday bought a 180 by Bob and a very near 171 by Heather, who is the future Darts Captain of the " Armourada " Team.
24 players plus supporters in the Owl that night. - Good fun by all , I hope.
The final was won by Bob and Doug.

Friday night saw me hit a 180, at Three W's, after some sad scores of 45,26,41.
No consistency. - I prefer singles to pairs though and finished 3-1 up on the best of 5.

This Tuesday should be a good night at the Three Ws as the "Armourada" team will be there and we should be making a team up to play them.
Hopefully we'll all get more than one game in this way.

Watch this space people.
Cheers
Negg

I am proud to inform you that your mother recently hit her first double ever in Darts.
A double four and she did a lap of honour around Afionas immediately, signing autographs on her way.
I forecast that in 4 weeks time she will be on double 5 !

Doug, like many here, is now after a dartboard for home. His game is improving.
We are having some very good nights out!

We have now managed to get 3 teams for a very small darts league.
Amourada . Night Owl . Three W's
The first match is at Amourada vs Three W's. The Night Owl team joins people from Pagi for a fun K/O at Night Owl so everyone wins.

If all goes well this league may grow, by a couple of teams, and then will be played through the summer with a team from Rainbow.
The Rainbow team would be very pleased to take on a team of "tourists" more than once, during the summer months ( and in between league games )
The Three W's and Night Owl team would also take part.

I may put a call out soon for someone to bring over a few small trophies. - h e l p !

Cheers

Ah Eggy, Jen and me have just stopped laughing. We hope Joe's mum does double 5. or double 6! Just please tell me where you get that wit from. I'll get my Egg card out...

(No joke my "carte oeuf" creates a big laugh on the cross channel ferry... Anyone else use Egg?)

I will have to get me arse out of gear and learn to play. I will be part of the Arillas "merchant bankers" team. Just keep posting, we're loving it!

lmao

Last night saw the very first Winter league game held at Armourada in Arillas.

We were all made very welcome by Leon, Vassilis and family and they did a very good job getting the board/mat/light etc ready for the "big game"

Three W's came out on top with an 11 - 2 victory but that means diddley squat.
All has a good time so all won in the end.
We're called the "North Corfu N.T.S Darts league"

It got interesting during the match that there was a 10 minute power cut but, with the help of Vasillis and a torch, the game continued.
( Cant remember who hit the double in that game as it was a little dark )

Next week sees Armourada play Night Owl at the Owl so watch this space folks!

Cheers

If he can ride round Arillas on that bike, I'm sure he can play darts by torch light!

Was it called the "low tech tournament"  Eggy?  I hope you didn't have any diva like behaviour from the players "I can't perform under these circumstances darling!" Glad you managed to complete the matches anyway.


I do like a man with a moustache " a man without a beard is like a meal without salt" Who said that ??  Barry you'll have to start growing one now and then we can see the before and after photos. 

Thanks for the update

Cheers Nan x

Cheers nan luvver

They're all divas. Every single one. But can you blame them?

Me in the seventies - Freddy Mercury eat your heart out at my Freddie tash. 'Twas better than yours dearie... ask the neighbours!

As for the beard, yous lot have never seen me with my full set. Wore it for years till a lovely lady I worked with told me I'd look younger without it. Vain? moi? Well it was off the next day. Pics might follow one day if I'm sober enough to find them.

Meanwhile on the serious stuff, I might not play darts but I am following the NTS like I did in September. Good luck Eggy - you deserve to WIN.

(Young Calum won't be there for another few months...)

Tomorrow night's darts ( Wednesday ) could be said as the "BIG ONE"
Or, we could just say it's another fun NTS night.

Three W's play,at home to, Night Owl and with Three W.s on 11 points and Night Owl on 7 points the final result could be a pointer to the league winners.
( Armourada will be back in the frame if Night Owl win 8-3 )
Last week Night Owl beat Armourada in a 7-6 , final game win.

What's more interesting for me is that there could be at least 5 Greek players taking part tomorrow evening.
Xrisanthos - Three W.s
Nickos - Night Owl
Makis - Night Owl ( My neighbour )
Dimitris - Night Owl  ( Jimmy from Rainbow )
Spiros - Night Owl  ( Brother of Jimmy )

All good stuff and I think a long and enjoyable Weds evening is on the cards.
Win or lose I'm sure all of us will still be smiling.
(If I play Nickos,Dimitris,Makis or Spiros I hope they leave the winning double 'till Avrio)

Cheers
Negg
