The Dart Club has had an extremely successful 2019.
The club has increased its membership and has managed to enter three teams in both the Summer and Winter Thursday night competitions of the Lower Blue Mountains Dart Association.
In the Summer competition, all three teams managed to make the finals with the Division 1 team of Anthony, Alex, Dan, Don, Huss, and Peter taking out the minor premiership for the first time by one point. Unfortunately, our Division 2 team of Troy, Gavin, Thomas, Eric and Bailey and our Division 3 team of Marty, Graham, Ann, Steve, Ron, and David both missed out on making their Grand Finals despite playing some excellent darts in the semis. Congratulations to both teams on their efforts throughout the competition.
The Division 1 team, however, went on to score decisive 5-2 and 5-1 victories over Bligh Park Tavern in their major semi and Grand Final to take out the Championship and be the number 1 ranked team in the Lower Blue Mountains competition. Their performance was outstanding as they didn’t give their opponents a chance in either game. Well done, guys!
In the current Winter competition, the Division 1 team has continued its strong form and is in first place with a 14-point lead heading into the finals. The Dart Club has two teams entered in the Division 3 competition with our No 1 team of club stalwarts holding down 4th place and our newcomers doing their best to challenge for a finals place. As well, we welcome Henry into our Division 1 team and Jason into our Division 3 team in the Dart Club.
Highlights of the last two competitions also include Anthony’s ten 180’s during the Division 1 competition which was more than double the next best from any team and Ann and David teaming to win the LBMDA Division 3 Championship Doubles in the mid-year period. Congratulations!
Finally, the Dart Club members would like to thank the RSL management for its ongoing support of our Dart Club and in particular, for providing an additional competition board in the new dart-room which has eased the pressure of competing when two of our three teams are playing at home. Your support is much appreciated.
We look forward to a strong finish in the current competition and an even bigger and better year in 2020.
