DARTS 2016

Don't forget that Darts Nights start again on Thursday 27th October 2016.

Much discussion is had by all (mainly talk about sailing and the weather!) and occasionally we actually play darts - you may have noticed the holes in the wall above, below and either side of the dart board.

These evenings will continue through to the start of the new season so if you feel like a midweek break from the kids, work or other half, then come on down to the club (8-11pm).

All welcome and a far from serious competition.
