I have been really busy of late and constantly seem to be playing darts more and more after a little break. Thursday 16th Aug saw me face the man who topped Group A in our local Morecambe Premier League -Lyndon Pearce. Lyndon is a fantastic darter and somewhat of a dark horse however his darting ability is awesome.
I came out second best on this occasion losing and only managing to take one leg, however I was more than happy even getting through the field of 32 men to qualify. I don't feel to bad as Lyndon did go on to win overall, well deserved it was too.
Friday I attended a local exhibition involving Colin " Jaws " Lloyd. It was a great night and I was honoured to be asked by the organiser to give him a game. Despite being really nervous and the only lady to play him, I wasn't really in my darting attire, but I came very close to beating him. Colin had to take out 160 for fear I would come back to the oche to take out the 60 I had left myself on.
Saturday saw me travel to Swinton Poolhall for a ladies Grandslam competition. I played fellow Lancashire superleague ladies as well as another couple of ladies I did not know Jane and Natalie, these were cracking darters and also new friends of mine. After 7 hours of darts I seized victory from Natalie 3.2 in a very tight final.
Arms heavy and aching Sunday saw our first Superleague game of the new season. Taking on Oldham. Morecambe ladies made a cracking start winning 6.2. I won my game 3.0 with a 54 average. Not my best attempt however I was happy with this due to how achy my arm was.
SAVING THE BEST TILL LAST:
We have now had all monies in following our Local Peterson Darts Open. We raised over £2500 from this competition and it was a pleasure handing over all the monies to our local Hospice - St Johns.
There is nothing better for me, playing darts which I love with friends and people I love and raising money for a very worth while charity at the same time.
