Peninsula Dart Line
by Glenn Campbell and Delynn Barton
Fall/winter season for the Peninsula Dart League is well underway. We hope to present to you scores, standings, and amusing anecdotes from this season’s matches. Due to time constraints, scores and highlights may be a week behind, but we will do our best. There are only four divisions of teams participating. In recent memory, this is an all time low.
Our objective in writing this column is twofold: (1) to generate interest in the darts through objective reporting and (2) to allow those participating in darts to have a voice. Anyone interested in making a contribution to this column is welcome. Guest columnists are accepted and encouraged. Please let us know during league play on Wednesday nights.
First and foremost, we would like to thank The Grassy Point Bar for their hospitality during the awards presentation of the Spring 1999 season. The Rock Lobserts were not only their division champs, but league champions as well. Do you have what it takes to go two in a row for the fall/winter 1999 season? Only time will tell.
One of the first match-ups this season was between teams from the same bar, the Blackwater Inn. The Bucks were defeated by the Dragons by a score of 15-4. Both teams are in Division One. In Division Two the Knights of Columbus’ team, The New World Order, "powerbombed" the Hammerheads of the High Tides. That score was again 15-4. One of the members of The New World Order was quoted "Beat us if you can, survive if we let you." Are you listening Division Two? Is that a promise or a threat?
The E-bombs of the High Tides, playing the Bridge Café, were defeated by the Blue Knights of the Knight of Columbus in Division Three. It was overheard that a rookie player from the E-bombs taught a seasoned veteran from the Blue Knights a lesson. In Division Four, the Lunachicks of Blackwater, "crazy as ever," defeated the "no name, no bar team" Grassy Point’s Burn-outs by a score of 11-8.
Folks, do you remember the first time you played darts? Did somebody take you under their wing? Let is pass on the tradition. Be a mentor! We can only help ourselves.
On a final note, happy belated birthday wishes go out to Julie Finn and Joanne Larcheuegue. We look forward to meeting with all of you and hearing your comments. We wish you all the best of luck, skilled chucking and true corks.
