In getting ready to go today I had to find my darts. I hadn't shot them let alone seen them since arriving her in Merida five years ago. I used to play darts a lot back in the states because it was something that came naturally to me and it was fun. It took me about an hour to finally find them and it was just in time to go.
We met today at three o'clock. There were seven of us and we were stoked and ready to have fun shooting darts. However, Hennessey's darts had been overly used by their patrons and were not in a serviceable condition. I was so pleased that I had brought mine with me as it saved the day.
We talked about how we were going to play and what game we were going to play.
So we put two teams together and started playing,
and drinking......well you have to because that's what you do when you shoot darts!
we decided to play 301, it's a game where both teams start with 301 points and the points accumulated from each throw is subtracted until one team gets to zero....and you must get to zero exactly.
there are more details to the game and scoring but we were there to have fun, maybe we'll get more detailed later but for now we're just going to have fun. Who knows, maybe we'll get to the point that we'll have a league or something if we can get enough players.
Nancy was pretty darn consistent with getting great points when she threw.
So we continued to shoot, drink, and eat and drink, shoot and eat, and well, you get the picture!
So if this seems like something you'd like to try we'll be doing it again the last Friday in April at 3PM. So come join us and we'll laugh, and drink, and eat, and shoot darts, and laugh, and...............!
