This was a thoroughly enjoyable social evening with a good cross-section of folk from the various sections, some 20 in all. After a good meal, a format for the darts was finally selected and names were drawn from an ashtray to give 5 matches of doubles. Apparently we were divided into 2 teams of 10, but nobody knew this until the result was read out the end...
It has to be said that the standard of darts was abysmal! Star of the show was Mavis who managed to hit more 20s than anyone else and even hit double 1 to leave herself and Rachel a double top to finish. However, Edith stole the match with a double 17..
A warm welcome to Carin and Rachel (Sarah's twin) who came along with Sarah & John. Hopefully we'll see you on a bike next year too.
