It was a catch-up week this week. We cleared the backlog of matches involving James & Graham and we will be going into the second half on the 24th August. We had a little 8-way knockout competition last night as well - just one leg of 501 in each match - which James won with some steady scoring and efficient checking out.
The latest table and fixtures are here:
Bank Holiday Monday 29th August will be Bullseye Night. I need teams of 2 - one darts player and one non-darts player - to compete through a number of rounds of darts skill and general knowledge to try and become the pub Bullseye champions! Entry will be £5 per team - it's open to anybody - and there'll be signs going up in the pub soon.
The format will be based on the TV show. The initial rounds will allocate subject categories to numbers around the board, so 5, 20 or 1 might be Sport, 18, 4 or 13 might be History and so on. Outside the treble ring will be worth 30 points, inside will be 50 points and the bullseye will be 100. One team will be eliminated at the end of each round. The next rounds will be like "Pounds for Points" with normal darts scoring and will continue until we are down to the final team.
The value of the prizes will depend on how many teams I can get signed up before the night - I'll keep you updated. There will be a first, second and third prize for the top 3 placed teams. And of course there will be a special "Star Prize" that the top team can gamble their winnings against...
