Title: For darts lovers only - Others may be bored to tears.
Post by: Eggy on November 19, 2008, 04:16:09 PM
Wednesday the 12th Novembr saw the first "Open Darts" knock out at the Three W's Internett bar in San Stephanos.

19 players entered the competition and came from Pagi,Magoulades,Arillas,Afionas and Kavadaddes to enter. I think someone also made the trip from Roda.

After the draw was made, and down to the last 16, yours truly was drawn against Krisanthios, owner of the Three W's.
What could I do? --- Scores of 132 / 95 / 85 / 90 and a 220 point lead were not enough. Kept missing the double! - He hit the double first.

The semi finals saw 2 English players vs 2 Greek players and the Final saw Mick, from Magoulades against my Greek neighbour Makis.
( For those of you here this year you may remember Mick as he was the guy looking after the boat rental at Arillas )
The experience of Mick took him home for a 2-0 win. Makis will be back with a vengeance soon though as he hadn't picked up a dart for 12 months.
( He is currently practising as I type )
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Last night saw the first N.O.K.O ( Night Owl Darts Knock Out ) The biggest bummer was that, I am laid up with "man flu" and didn't get there.
I'm told it was a very good night and the Winner was Dimitris from the Rainbow Bar, who took the scalp of Afionas neighbour, Bob, on the way.
English / Greek Final - And won by a Greek. - How good is that!
A very good turn out and I'm really p****d I wasn't there. But who wants my germs?

So congrats to Dimitris, but also bear in mind that Alexandra can beat him quite well.
( If she didn't have school next morning and was there .... who knows )

One lady, who was there. was Hilary from the Corfiot news who has promised to do a little write up for the next mag.
___________________________________________________________________

So all going quite well. Tria Adelphia will have a dart board up and running for next summer and Coconut are considering the same. I think more Greeks are becoming interested in the game I'd love to organise a "Home n Away" between Tria and Rainbow guests next summer but it's early days yet.
___________________________________________________________________

So , next K/O is Three W's on Thursday 27th Nov. Can we get Mick there as current holder and also Dimitris as Night Owl winner together on the same night?

Watch this space y'all

Cheers
Negg

Eggy you are in trouble as I come from Stoke on Trent and so does Phil THE POWER Taylor. In fact his mum lives about 1/4 of a mile from me. All this said and done I am going to take lessons from him. Be afraid be very afraid in 2009.

Keefy

Just bear in mind that I've e-mailed Phil Taylor many times with a challenge and he never bothers to answer. -
Is he a worried man?
Should I offer to pay his air fare?
Is it because the Greek dartboard is "close enough" to the standard height & length?
Can't he cope with the ouzo and smoking?
Or... is it because I said it would be a handicap game.
( Every score over 100 and the thrower has to eat a hot pepper !)

But... It's good to see that a few Greeks now are taking a Winter interest in the game.
Our next K/O at the Three W's, on the 27th, has already attracted 16 possibles and half of those are Greek. At some point the Bar may have to install a 2nd board!

Wouldn't it be great to have a few Germans enter as well?
Loads of fun is what it's all about.
The problem for me is,the organisng does affect the playing. - Still god fun though.

Cheers
Negg

Has anyone been watching the pro-celebrity challenge darts on tv lately.  I've thoroughly enjoyed the rounds I've seen. One of the best was Phil Tufnell and Raymond Van Barneveld match when Tuffers managed to score 160. Not a conventional way to approach it he went treble 20 double top treble 20 it was pure magic!  Mike Tindall was involved in that match with Mark Webster. It may get a repeat so watch out for it !

Watched and enjoyed very much by me. Good to see the "pub players" mix it with the "pro's". Concentration is the name of the game and all my best games were played in "open" matches. Relax and have a chat between throws and it reduces your chance of winning. The celebrities who knuckled down proved this.

Currently enjoying the Grand Slam of Darts on ITV at the mo. Did you see James Wade produce the 1st 9 dart 501, ever, in this comp?
180/180/141 out.-and he still lost the match. - My best is 12 darts. long way to go!

My camera will be with me on Thursday for the K/O at Three W's , San Stephanos.
Hoping I will be allowed a pic of all the players entd.

It's very important for me to ensure this is a mixed comp and doesn't become an "ex-pat" take over of a local bar. 2 Greeks in the final would be ideal!
My neighbour, Makis, has been throwing with me today and he aint that bad!

Phil , I'm currently practising with your liver stuck over the treble 20. I haven't hit it yet so luck is on your side.

In my experience all the best looking fellas can be found playing darts! It was 33 years ago that I first noticed my beloved when he shouted out "Check the board" in response to some half hearted marking. A thrill that lingers to this day.

Eggy
I missed the James Wade checkout but watched Mervyn King get the seven treble twenties and then come to grief.  We watched Eric Bristows golden arrows and relived our mis-spent youth. John Lowe was Mr Consistent but we loved Bobby George who was so exciting to watch.  Barry went to the News of the World at Alexandra Palace in 1976 and Billy Leonard beat Leighton Rees. Now we're showing our age.  Look forward to seeing the photos and presentation of the trophies. 

Phil
You don't get to my age without knowing a thing or two LOL

If that ole sun is shining, and the temps hovering around that magical 29 deg, I don't think many people will want to be throwing darts in the afternoon.
and.... after a very good meal, in the evening, at your choice of Hotel/Taverna, even I would want to sit back and take it easy.

However - on a wet afternoon it could be different. Malibu and Coconut both show good afternoon films. I wonder what it would be like if they had a dartboard.
If they did it then the support would have to follow from all of us.
One day here , one day there , etc.

Tria Adelphia have one planned for next year and Rainbow we all know about.
One evening a week, 4 teams of 3 , representing their Bar playing home and away.
Sounds good fun but much organisation needed.

Lovely dream but loadsa work for Eggy.

This Thursday at the Three W's, Stephanos, will be interesting. We have 20 names down to play now. Could be a long night. Hopefully we will have the company of Jimmy from the "Bow" who will be looking for his 2nd K/O title.
I'm trying to get fit. My legs and arms are like lead at the mo.
Maybe some jogging and press ups? - Gerroff ! - I'm not that keen.
( Next year I may need someone to bring over some little trophies )

Just been catching up on reading forum posts as I have not been able to get on as often as I would of liked and just come across this post!

Eggy, Fantastic work you have been doing in promoting interest in the great game & just to think this all came about in July, in the Horizon, when you asked if I played, and I replied that was all James & I had been doing when we were up at The Rainbow! It looks like you havent looked back since, good for you mate!

The Grandslam on ITV was an excellent tournament, Wades 9 darter was brilliant and I can't believe he still went on to lose. I did feel sorry for Jenkins last night, but he never really looked like threatening Taylor who was on phenomenal form. Only a few weeks to go before the World Championships start on SKY, that will no doubt keep me out of trouble over Christmas!!

Great thread Neill! :-)

Thanks Timbo - Wegg was glad we can't et ITV4 and only got the highlights on ITV.
Great games.
( Tonight I managed to hit 14 out of 15 darts in the 20's section. Certainly not pro quality )

Jinksy
Jimmy is playing very well indeed and if he is with us at Stephanos on Thursday will be hard to beat. - Unless I get him in the 2nd round, providing I can win the first round.

Those of you who stay at the Rainbow will know that Jimmy and Spiros are very keen on having snooker tournaments when they have a good crowd of guests in. Not surprisingly they are both rather good at snooker......10 years agao, my then 16 year old daughter decided to enter the competition. I don't think she even knows the rules....

In the first round, she was paired to play Jimmy. An easy win for him I hear you say...however, Lauren was wearing the skimpiest little pink dress with rather a revealing neckline and she managed to lean over the table at just the right angle every time Jimmy was about to take a shot....poor bloke didn't stand a chance and he's never been allowed to forget being beaten by her!!

So negg.....a word of advice for your darts match....turn up in a skimpy pink dress to put Jimmy off and you might win too!!
PS Do mention to him about the snooker!

Last nights darts at the "Three W's" San Stephanos.

( Jimmy from Rainbow couldn't make it but, fortunately, as I hadn't worn my newly bought pink dress the shop took it back )

We had 20 entrants to the K/O and they came from "far afield". Well Pagi, Arillas, and Kavvadades was represented as well as Stephanos, Vatonies,Avliotes and Sidari.

Local man , Manolis , was the first to play and, considering he only picked up "pub" brass darts 3 weeks ago had 9 nine darts at a double before losing.
( His first ever proper game of darts! )

In the 2nd round I was drawn against neighbour, Makis, who was bidding to go one better from his last time runner up position. One to me but hard work!

It seems that Three W's owner, Xrisanthos, has been secretly practising and had a cracker to get into his quarter final, winning through against newcomer Andy.

I played against Andy's wife in my semi final and was just glad she'd forgotten her glasses whilst Paulos, from Arillas was beaten by Mick,Avliotis, to meet me in the final.
( Paulos had taken the scalp of Xrisanthos in the last 8 )

So, Kavaddades vs Avliotis in the final. I'm pleased to say I won 2-0 but was a very lucky man. A good fun evening had by all.
Next one in 2 weeks time but Night Owl on Tuesday where maybe I can get a crack at Jimmy. ( Without the pink dress! )

Cheers All
Negg

Poor ole Spiros has been suffering with this bug that turns men into grumpy.

He was at the Night Owl on K/O  but only to watch. We bumped into him and Jimmy, also at Night Owl, a few evenings later. He still looked a bit rough.
I'm sure he'll be fit enough to beat me soon.
( Maybe the Owl on Tuesday )

Tony - I'm struggling to make this work here but it does look a very interesting game.
( try again a morrow )

Tuesday night sees the next Night Owl K/O folks, when the Three W's winner. aka yours truly, may meet the current Night Owl K/O champion. Dimitirs from Rainbow, who, my spies tell me is playing very well. He's been putting in more home board practice that me as well, so could be a very high pressure game. - For me that is!
Will we meet in the first round or contest the final? - Nail biting stuff eh?
( Should I do a player seeding table - Or shall we just concentrate on a good time? )

Watch this space.

Last nights darts,at Night Owl, atrracted 14 entries.
( 3 ladies, and eleven men - 3 of whom were Greek )

I thought I was on a roll after beating Xrisanthos, Three W's owner, who had beaten me in their first "Home" K/O.  End of my roll though and lost the next round, 2-1, to Paul, from Arillas.
( Last week at Three W's Paul beat Xristanthos so I knew it would be a close game ) Jimmy once again got to the final, beating my neighbour Makis on the way. Makis's mum-in-law played well winning her first round but then lost 2-0 to Jimmy.
( After having darts at a double to beat him )

It was Jimmy vs Paul for the final. A very close game but Pauls night winning 2-1.

Fot those of you not asleep yet, and just before you nod off, just a mention that the next K/O is Thursday week at Three W's. With the response we seem to be having I think another helper will soon be required.

'scuse my ignorance, but is darts a game normally played by Greeks.. I thought their forte was backgammon... have you introduced them to this new "vice" then Eggy?

So the women now hear "hey up luv, I'm off for a game of darts" in Greek of course!

Its great to hear your tournaments are extending further than Arillas... should we expect an Arillas Bullseye" team  on tv.soon?

You have done a lot of good work in 19 months Eggy!! :-)

I sent an e-mail, about 14 days ago, to "Red Dragon Sports" who I've ordered a lot of darts goodies from recently. I asked if they would be willing to make a sponsorship donation to our next K/O there. The response was a very generous one.

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE NEW "THREE W's" DARTBOARD ?

Lovely dart board.

Dominoes is best avoided!!! 

I've seen more animosity stirred up up over a game of dominoes than soft Mick whoever he is?

Allegations of cheating were made against one player who was "wobbling" a lose tooth. The opposing team said he was signalling HA! AS IF!!

Heaven forbid that unsportsmanlike behaviour such as that should ever surface in Arillas.

Loving the match reports

Nan - Nearly two last night, one by me and one by Mike! In both cases the last dart literally on the top wire.

A good response at Three W's last night with 14 people playing.
Not all want their pic taken but I had permission granted to post this one.
(http://img353.imageshack.us/img353/3327/dragonrw7.jpg)

Owner, Xrisanthos, is knelt bottom right.
Stood from left to right. Mandy , Fiona, Mike , Helen , Andy and Doug.
Knelt is Paul and Xris.
I don't know surnames but, perhaps some of you know some of them?

Many good games last night. ( Secret practicing somewhere , maybe )

Jimmy, Rainbow had a cracker of a game with Mike and a 76 out gave him a 2-1 victory.
I was lucky to beat Doug in a prelim round 2-1. He hasn't played for 10 years but still knows the way round a dartboard.
Mandy had darts to beat Andy but lost 2-0. Then I beat Andy 2-0.
The semis saw Jimmy playing Paul and me against Xris. Paul, fresh from his Night Owl knock out win beat Jimmy 2-1 and, as I was wobbling less than Xris, at 10:30 pm I won 2-0.

The final gave me a bit of revenge against Paul for beating me at the "Owl" and I scraped through 2-1.

Anyone still awake out there?

Being fascinated with numbers I've been compiling a points system, at each K/O.
Awarding points down to losing semi finlists gives us a table like this:-

Paul - 27
Negg - 27
Jimmy - 21
Xris - 12
Mick -10

Bearing in mind that Jimmy has missed 2 K/O's isn't he doing well.
2 Greek dart players in the top 5 can't be bad!

Loadsa fun and next one at Night Owl on Tuesday.
Cheers
Negg

Nan , Night Owl having a bash tomorrow night. Should be interesting. Nickos, when not doing the cooking, loves to play and is quite partial to scoring on 19's and hitting double one! ( He leaves double one on purpose - 19 d1 - 17 d1 - SCARY! )
His boys have taken to the game very well and improve all the time.

Only 4 people turned up for the last Three W's game but we still had a good night.
I think the bad weather, recently ,keeps people at home in the warm.
Plenty of time though.

Lindy P, Tell Mal I lost to him once and once is enough. Roll on the summer for a bit of revenge.

Cheers
Negg

So, off I went to Night Owl, last night, expecting 6 to 8 people to turn up for the Knock out. - Bad weather usually keeps everyone indoors.

But.... We had 20 entries ! - Aaargh !
We drew the names for partners and played as a pairs knock out or we would have been there all night.

Local "Afionas" man , Bob and I were drawn as a pair and were obviously favourites but no one told Paul from Arillas that and him and lady partner beat us in the semi-final. A very nice double eight, with first dart, by her put paid to us.

Young Night Owl" Petros has been watching Father,Nickos play and together with his lady partner they won their first round. He wanted 21 and went 19 double 1.
(Not a fluke as he told me what he was going to do in his next throw - Hmmmm !)

Paul and Lyn lost the final 2-1 to Doug and Tony. Doug is the guy I mentioned in a recent Three W's post. ( Hadn't played darts for 10 years , up to now )
Loads a fun and nobody got rich. We only charge one euro each and even the losing semi finalist got a drink from the proceeds.

Next one on Thursday at Three W's then following Tuesday at the Owl.

Cheers

Night Owl tonite for a bit of serious stuff!

Just the four of us . Me , Bob and Jimmy n Spiros from Rainbow.

Tomorrow Night is the next session at Three W's

There is a possibility of making 3 darts teams playing from 3 local places in Feb.
( Could be fun ! )

Neill, James & I will be back in September to give you some practice, well James will anyway. :-)

You'll have to let me know nearer the time, what supplies you need bringing over too, I'm sure James will gladly add it to his 'weekly' order from dartscorner!!

He's clocked up countless 180's since we last saw you, me, I've still only hit the one!! But I think I will now be putting in 7 months solid practice!!

On Tuesday the names were drawn from the hat for a pairs K/O and I partenred Lyn.
We lost the final but she played well - It was me that missed the final winning double.
Paul is certainly top of the tree at the mo.

Order of merit, by games won and attended is:-
Paul
Negg
Jimmy
Xrisanthos
Bob
Lyn

The serious stuff I spoke about, Just the four of us was a good night.
Night Owl's new dartboard, bought back from America, by Linda the week before, was duly christened with a 180. - Not by me but by Jimmy ! - His first ever!

Thursday at Three W's
We made two teams of 6 & played 9 legs of pairs. My " drawn" team won 8-1 but all games went 2-1
A very good night and there will be more to come. There is talk now of the "Armourada" having a winter team which will play us and two other teams in a small league.
All around Arillas which does not involve too much travelling.

Timbo
I'm hoping that darts will have caught on a bit more for the summer. There is also talk of the Rainbow having a summer "Home" darts team which will play there every Tuesday night and will happily take on 6 "visitors"
Night Owl are keeping their board up for the summer and will probably have a regular team as well.
Three W's will also be another place to go. James will certainly get some good games there. Especially from Xrisanthos, owner, who does throw a mean dart.

Pagi also are seriously looking at a regular team, including Lyn. A super crowd to spend a relaxing evening with.

And me ? - Very desperate for some more singles games. I hear Roda has some good players there so a visit is due soon.
The problem is that it takes me an hour to get the bones lubricated.

If I need any supplies Tim then I'll let you know.(Can you get decent knees and a new arm?)

Tell her to say hello  to me and introduce herself.
--------------------------------------------------------

Night Owl, last Tuesday bought a 180 by Bob and a very near 171 by Heather, who is the future Darts Captain of the " Armourada " Team.
24 players plus supporters in the Owl that night. - Good fun by all , I hope.
The final was won by Bob and Doug.

Friday night saw me hit a 180, at Three W's, after some sad scores of 45,26,41.
No consistency. - I prefer singles to pairs though and finished 3-1 up on the best of 5.

This Tuesday should be a good night at the Three Ws as the "Armourada" team will be there and we should be making a team up to play them.
Hopefully we'll all get more than one game in this way.

Watch this space people.

I am proud to inform you that your mother recently hit her first double ever in Darts.
A double four and she did a lap of honour around Afionas immediately, signing autographs on her way.
I forecast that in 4 weeks time she will be on double 5 !

NAN
Doug, like many here, is now after a dartboard for home. His game is improving.
We are having some very good nights out!

We have now managed to get 3 teams for a very small darts league.
Amourada . Night Owl . Three W's
The first match is at Amourada vs Three W's. The Night Owl team joins people from Pagi for a fun K/O at Night Owl so everyone wins.

If all goes well this league may grow, by a couple of teams, and then will be played through the summer with a team from Rainbow.
The Rainbow team would be very pleased to take on a team of "tourists" more than once, during the summer months ( and in between league games )
The Three W's and Night Owl team would also take part.

I may put a call out soon for someone to bring over a few small trophies. - h e l p !

Last night saw the very first Winter league game held at Armourada in Arillas.

We were all made very welcome by Leon, Vassilis and family and they did a very good job getting the board/mat/light etc ready for the "big game"

Three W's came out on top with an 11 - 2 victory but that means diddley squat.
All has a good time so all won in the end.
We're called the "North Corfu N.T.S Darts league"

It got interesting during the match that there was a 10 minute power cut but, with the help of Vasillis and a torch, the game continued.
( Cant remember who hit the double in that game as it was a little dark )

Next week sees Armourada play Night Owl at the Owl so watch this space folks!

Was it called the "low tech tournament"  Eggy?  I hope you didn't have any diva like behaviour from the players "I can't perform under these circumstances darling!" Glad you managed to complete the matches anyway.


I do like a man with a moustache " a man without a beard is like a meal without salt" Who said that ??  Barry you'll have to start growing one now and then we can see the before and after photos.

As for the beard, yous lot have never seen me with my full set. Wore it for years till a lovely lady I worked with told me I'd look younger without it. Vain? moi? Well it was off the next day. Pics might follow one day if I'm sober enough to find them.

Meanwhile on the serious stuff, I might not play darts but I am following the NTS like I did in September. Good luck Eggy - you deserve to WIN.

Tomorrow night's darts ( Wednesday ) could be said as the "BIG ONE"
Or, we could just say it's another fun NTS night.

Three W's play,at home to, Night Owl and with Three W.s on 11 points and Night Owl on 7 points the final result could be a pointer to the league winners.
( Armourada will be back in the frame if Night Owl win 8-3 )
Last week Night Owl beat Armourada in a 7-6 , final game win.

What's more interesting for me is that there could be at least 5 Greek players taking part tomorrow evening.
Xrisanthos - Three W.s
Nickos - Night Owl
Makis - Night Owl ( My neighbour )
Dimitris - Night Owl  ( Jimmy from Rainbow )
Spiros - Night Owl  ( Brother of Jimmy )

All good stuff and I think a long and enjoyable Weds evening is on the cards.
Win or lose I'm sure all of us will still be smiling.
(If I play Nickos,Dimitris,Makis or Spiros I hope they leave the winning double 'till Avrio)

Cheers

" Three W's Internett Bar crashes to "talon-ted" Night Owl "

The newly formed "Night Owl" team got off to a good start in last nights match, at Three W's, with the greek duo of Dimitris and Makis taking out Egg n Mandy 2-1.

Three W's quickly bounced back and Pauls win over Dimitris, in the singles, gave them a 3 game to 1 lead overall.
Not to be outdone, Night Owl dug in deep and took the next 4 games with Nickos, Night Owl and Rainbows Dimitris doing their bit. These Greeks play well dont yer know.

Alan n Mandy, Three W's took the scoreline to 4 games to 5 and then it was the turn of Night Owl's "Captain Bob" to beat Xrisanthos 2-1. Dimitris then put the icing on the Night Owl cake with a good 2-1 win over Doug. - scoreline 7 - 4 to the "Owl"

Three W's "Captain Paul" with the help of partner Chris to the game to 7-5 and, thanks to me not playing in the triples, The "W's" got a small revenge.
Final score - Night Owl 7 , Three W's 6.
A close game and legs won were - Night Owl 16 - Three W's 17.
But it's the games won that count. - ( Who made that rule up? )

It all makes a very interesting 3 way league and Three W's play Armourada next Tues.

Watch this space folks , if still awake , and up for it.

A bit of wind could also help :-)

Hi all you dart lovers,

I've just come up with an idea for the summer season 2009.  As Neil is our resident darts player, I thought it would be a good idea if he could keep a score table somehow on the forum, to show the person with the highest score, and also the person with the highest out shot.  It would be good to get a photo of the people that are topping the table.  It would keep those of us at home up to date with all the latest scores, and who are the best dart players amongst us.  Hope you don't mind this Neil, but I know you need something to keep you occupied!!!  Neil - Bev has ordered me a special darts shirt which I intend to wear when I come out in September - so look out Neil!!

           " ARILLAS ARMOUR (ADA) TOO TOUGH FOR STEPHANOS ARROWS "

Armourada produced a fine 9 games to 4 win over Three W's last night in a match that they needed to win well to stay in contention, as possible league winners.
With the scoreline reading 5-4 to them , partway through, Three W's then felt the pressure, or the Ouzo, and lost the next 4 games.

Derek, Armourada, mainatined his good singles form with wins over Negg and Xrisanthos. He now leads the singles win table with a strike rate of 80% and most 100 plus scores hit in all games.  Last night he just missed a 164 out.

Armourada play Night Owl. next week, at home and, should they win 9-4 again , will make the rest of the season very interesting indeed.

Captain Bob, at Night Owl, may either be rubbing his hands together in anticipation or getting a headache deciding which players he should play where and in what order.
( And he thought he'd get a quiet life living in Corfu ! )
A good singles game may be him against Derek as Bob is 2nd in the singles table with a 75% strike.

That's it folks. - You can all wake up now. - Good bit of fun! - eh?

Eggy, James is getting better too - he's getting loads of 180s at the moment so you'll be in for more of a thrashing in September (if you can stand it!!).

Also, nothing to do with darts, but something to do with James so some people on here might be pleased to hear that he was selected to play pool for West Yorkshire County on Sunday.  There were only 6 places available so he's done really well.  Fingers crossed one day you'll see him on TV playing for England.

Don't mean to sound like I'm bragging but I'm really proud of him.

This darting on the forum is getting serious so I decided to get some training.

Now this is serious stuff :-)

You don't just stand on a line and throw at a board , same as you don't just hit a ball with a club in golf --- we know that golf has sport coaches and so it is now in darts , there are so many similarities ---- you learn the grip , targeting , the throw or swing , the release or strike and the follow through . You put all this together in reaching your target in the way that is best for you and meanwhile you practice and practice until you develop your skills and master your sport.

Look out Negg I am on my way !!!!!

Last night, at Armourada, saw Night Owl sneak into a 5-3 lead, but with a "180" and a 143 out from Derek ( Armourada ) , plus 2 good wins from him and Capt Heather, that deficit was quickly made up and , at the score of 6-6, Armourada took the triples to give them a 7-6 win.

Derek, from Armourada, continues to make his presence felt and now holds an 85% strike rate on "singles games won" - This time at the expense of Capt. Bob, Night Owl, who now drops to 60%.
And..also ...... 143 out could be very hard to beat in a game of 301 straight start.

A good Greek pairs partnership is taking shape in the form of Nickos ( Night Owl ) and my neighbour Makis who now keep a 66% strike rate. But Dimitris, ex Rainbow, together with new player Paul, (Armenades) may be hard to beat with a 100% record.

Current points are now:-
Armourada - 24
Three W's - 21
Night Owl - 20

Three W's and Night Owl each have a game in hand so next Tuesdays match will be very interesting indeed! = ( If you're all still awake that is! )

Cheers
Negg

I'm really amazed to the way this game has taken off here! Not just us Brits but also some very good Greek players are emerging.
Dimitris and Spiros from Rainbow who always enjoy a game and Nickos, from Night Owl, who only picked up a set of arrows around November. Now practices most days!
My neighbour, Makis, - He's a fireman really but loves this game.
Xrisanthos from Three Ws , Nickos's two lads and Dimitris of Bardis Bros builders.
Linda, Night Owl, has even taken to the game.

Anyway............. a message to all the Forum.
League funds are pretty low at the moment and I had this brainwave - as yer do!
How about a team winners sheild sponsored by members of the Arillas Forum.?
( Yes - I'm asking for donations )

A sheild would cost around £30 and I would look to get the www.arillas etc engraved on it. A good talking point in the summer as this sheild would be in the winning teams Taverna for all to see. Our presentation of awards would be the 13th May so any Forum Guests are very welcome.
Jsut 15 members @ 2 euros each and a mention at presentation - What could be better? ( Or 30 members @ 1 euro - 60 members at 50 cents is acceptable )
I just need a UK address for any donations plus names of sponsors etc.
Eileen - I may nominate you as "collector"

Just a thought and feedback welcome.
Cheers

Eileen luvver, have pm'd, and Neill it's a great idea. As you know we usually sit disrupting the game and putting darts in our hands might be a very irresponsible thing to do....

Perhaps the Arillas Booby (boozy) League? I can recommend several candidates for that one...

Jen and me totally support the league, and will be proud to contribute in any way we can.

OWL ON TOP OF THE TREE (W's)

Night Owl's 8 game to 5 Home win over Three W's now puts them into top with 28 points. Three W's who have lost the last 3 matches hang on to second with 26 points and their next weeks game against Armourada will be interesting as Armourada are poised on 24 points.

The "Owl" pairs combi of Paul and Dimitris still hold their unbeaten record, this time at the expense of Neill and Paul who lost their 100% record.
With the scoreline at 6-5 to the Owl Dimitris then paired up with Nickos to meet Neill and Xrisanthos. At 1 leg each, both pairs on a double, Nickos only needed the one dart at double 12 to win the match for his team. The Owl then score the final result to 8-5 by taking the triples.

Armourada and Three W's will both be after at least 9 points next week to keep the pressure on Night Owl.

Cheers
Negg

I admit that the game got to me a little on Tuesday as my darts bounced of of treble 19 five times and treble 20 twice. And.... the 3 x20's I managed to hit all laid just above the top wire.
..... And I missed diouble tops to win our pairs
..... And I never got a shot at double 17 as Nickos plopped his double 12.
Darters excuses - Don't you just love 'em?

Anyway..
We have a nice cash donation from you and Phil n Jen and Eileen plus a possible other two pledges.The idea is to buy a perpetual sheild which stays in the winning teams Taverna until played for again. Were a third of the way there and everything helps.
A framed award certificate will stay in the winning Taverna for all time and will have the sponsors names on it. - Hope I can mention names at presentation.

Any more sponsors? please feel free to donate.
I CAN ALWAYS ORDER A BIGGER CERTIFICATE !

and Eileen of course who may be cheering a few players on in the bext 7/10 days or so

Darts is now finding quite a bit of interest here in the younger up n coming players.

Alexandra @ Rainbow last year showed a very good talent for the game and now we have Petros and Spiros ( Sons of Linda and Nickos , Night Owl ) who also have a special knack and love for the game. These kids can give all a run for your money!

Talk is that very soon we'll have a Saturday morning session when a few of us "adults" we'll be at Night owl to teach the young uns all we know of the game.
( And how to get it right more times than we can )

And................. I forgot the lady players.

A mention for Ann and Linda who played for Night Owl on Tuesday.

Linda( Night Owl) is getting her darts together very well now and Bob's 40 he had left was thanks to her hitting 135 to leave it!

Ann put in many scores of 60+ which put a smile on Spiros's ( Ex Rainbow) face.
It's good to get a smile from Spiros and it was even bigger when they won 2-1.

Go's to show we're all having a bloody good time. Win or Lose.

Joe - Just a twinge better

"Stephanos Tungsten puts dent in Arillas Armour"

Three W's 8-5 win over Armourada last night ended their last 3 match defeats and now puts them at the top of the table with 34 points. Armourada sit with 28 points and Night Owl, with a game in hand, rest comfortably on 29.
Night Owls game against Three W's could decide the league winners but the "Owl" need to win by at least 8-5. And...... if Armourada beat the "Owl" in their last match by a 10-3 margin we could be looking at a 3 way tie. Interesting.

Derek, Armourada, still heads the top of the singles table winning 8 of his 9 games, with an 89% strike rate.

It's a Three W's Night over Owl

In a match that both teams needed convincing wins Three W's just scraped home with a 7-6 result.

Three W's ruffled the Owl's feathers racing into a 4-0 lead but Owl clawed their way back, with 2 good singles wins by Nickos and Dimitris (Jimmy).  A pairs win by Owls Jimmy & Spiros (Rainbow) and a singles win by Capt Bob made the scoreline 6-4.
Xrisanthos ( W's) made the winning point but Three W's failed to gain those much needed 2 extra points by losing the last pairs and final triples game.
A total of 18 scores of 100 plus were hit during the match. Not bad as the games are only 301 not 501.

Night Owl meet Armourada, next week in the last league game and need to win 8-5 to
win the league by 1 point.  Armourada need a 12-1 victory which, although a tall order, is not impossible.

Any more little sponsor pledges would be most welcome as I've spent all the league funds. ( On trophies and a perpetual sheild etc - Not on repairing the Pug )

IT'S A GREAT NIGHT AT OWL

The league Pairs K/O final ended up an all Night Owl affair with owner , Nickos with Capt. Bob vs team mates Paul and Ann.

Bob n Nickos has already disposed of favourites Mick n Paul ( Three W's ) also taking the scalp of other hopefuls , Neill n Xrisanthos.
Paul n Ann ended the interests of Derek n Heather and John n Anne from Amourada.

The final went to the 3rd leg with yet another fine double out by Nickos who must be the most improved player in the league, only picking up a set of darts last October.

" OWLS-ZAT "

The last league match for the season proved to be a very close call indeed as Night Owl needed at least a 7-6 win over Armourada to finish league winners. On the both occassions they last met each team had a win with the same scoreline.

Armourada very quickly took a 2-0 lead only to see the Owls bounce back winning the next pairs and 2 singles. Derek, Armourada levelled the match to 3-3. Neither team were taking any prisoners and the Owl combi of Nickos and Rainbow Spiros made it a 4-3 lead which Capt Bob and Ann then increased to a 5-3.
A fine game by Armours Senan and Ann and 5-4 on the board. The next singles match was a cracker indeed with Capt Bob ( 60% singles Strike ) taking on Derek, who leads the table having lost only 1 match all season. At 1 leg each and with the Owl advantage of throwing first in leg 3, plus a fine 140, Bob got tothe double first. Derek left himself 40 but did not get a shot at the double. So, 6-4 to the Owl which then became 6-5, thanks to another good performance by Armours Ann.

Capt Bob and Rainbow Dimi then took on Ann and Derek and despite some good darts from Armourada it was Dimitris turn to find those doubles. 7-5 to the Owl.
Armorada took the last triples so final score 7-6. Enogh to put Night Owl as league winners as, although it was a tie, with Three W's on games won, the Owl won that decisive extra match.
Final points total :-
NIGHT OWL - 41
THREE W'S - 41
ARMOURADA - 35

Much merriement had by all , before , during and after and a super team spirit from all concerned. Even congrats from Three W's players who came to support Armourada!
A good result for the Owl who, donchyerknow , have 4 Greeks on the books!
Rainbows Dimi n Spiros, Owl Nickos and my neighbour, Makis.

In my days riggs, we only had wood. feathers were a luxury we couldn't afford. (And Capital Letters - far too expensive.) As a result we weren't very good at darts.

My dad did lead weights though. I remember him wishing he could attach them to mum's legs. Never quite understood what he meant....

Welcome back Sandy. We all wish you'd stayed there!

Just a few pics, people, of the Darts Singles K/O held at Armourada last night.
.
This is a worried Nickos, Night Owl, after finding out he's drawn Anne from Armourada in the first round. ( She beat him 2-1 in a very excellant league game )
Sadly for Nickos she beat him 2-1 again and now goes to he semi-final on presentation night.
(http://img301.imageshack.us/img301/8431/12988575.jpg)
.
Here we have Xrisanthos, Three W's, very freshh from hitting his 3rd 180 in 4 weeks.
But... Not enough to lose 2-1 to an inform Gary from Armourada, again!.
(http://img301.imageshack.us/img301/6672/50680099.jpg)

Armourada did us proud last night as excellant hosts and , as you see , it was a good time had by all.
(http://img301.imageshack.us/img301/9009/13113728.jpg)

This all sums up the NTS ( Not To Serious) darts leaue where it may be nice to win but it's a lot more fun to have a very good time. Anything else is a bonus!

Semi Finals next week with Anne(Armourada) playing Pavlos (Three W's) and Alan from Three W's against Gary ( Armourada )
But... Where are Night Owl players, you may ask! Casualties along the way--Just like Eggy here who couldn't hit a cows a**e with a shovel.
Next week will be a cracker and a good outside bet is Ann. She dunnalf play well
(DONCHYERKNOW)

Fraid not Sandy - I was busy losing 2-0 to an Arnourada opponent.

Last Night at Three W's was "Award Pesentation" and the finals of the singles K/O.
It was an Armourada vs Three W's final with our very own Capt Pavlos against a tidy little player in Gary.
Paul took the first 501 in 22 darts and Gary hit a very nice x15 witn onedart to lever at 1-1. Pavlos's night though and very steady darts put him in front of a double he did not miss.

Good time had by all and Three W's laid on Souvlakis / Roasties / Chips and fish in batter ( Xristhanos special ) for all. Live music by local guy Darren May and a little dancing by some- - Not moi though.

Some pics for you.Maybe you recognise a few faces?

The guy on the left (can't make him out from the photo) looks so bored Negg. Presumably he's winning?

Looking forward to abusing and humiliating you in July....

Darts looks to be increasing in popularity as the summer moves on.

Tria Adelphia's new board is well used by guests and The Rainbows new board, of only 2 months, has already taken a pounding.
(14 players last night in a K/O won by Rainbows Spiros)

Coconut's new board and cabinet sits very well at the back of the bar so that any loose missiles do not damage it's clientele.

Armourada has kept their board up and even Vassilis has invested in a set of Darts.

Night Owl, Afionas, also have a weekly darts night, with a choice of an outside or inside board.

A few K/O's and games have already been played at all above and it's amazing how many holidaymakers have regretted not bring their own darts!

Three W's, Agious Stephanos has become very popular with their local holidaymakers and Xrisanthos, owner, enjoys many games with many people.
A website you may be interested in here is:
-http://www.threew.gr/livecam.html
Take a look. It shows what's happening in the bar. Just like the Arillas cam and you could give freinds back home a time that you'll be in the bar to give them a wave.

The only drawback for me is that as everyone's game here seems to improve my game seems to be going the other way. I prefer playing during the afternoon.
Wonder why?
Cheers
Negg

For anyone here next Tuesday the 21st July.

I am hosting a Darts K/O and bumper raffle at Three W's to start around 9pm.
A bit of fun and darts can be supplied,

I also hope to organise one for the Rainbow the following Wednesday 29th July.

And Night Owl @ Afionas have an open air board which can be fun with a slight breeze

Quite a few places in Arillas now with boards should you get "BOARD" on the beach.
Armourada , Tria Adelphia , Coconut , Rainbow and Kaloudis have had one for quite a while. - Do any of you know any more in Arillas that I don't?
It's rumoured that the Marvelous Hotel (Hotel Marvel) are putting a team in for the Winter and we may also have a ladies Team.
Pack yer Darts people, if you play. Borrow some if you don't.
Cheers

You'll have to bring a suitcase then! And... if you need extra items to put in it, then I can think of 2 people who require dartboards.  10 euro per board haulage of course.

How about I organise a Darts K/O at the Rainbow for either :-

Wednesday 2nd Sept or Wednesday 9th Sept.
Go for a 9pm start to give the option of something to eat beforehand.
( Or eat at Rainbow in between games , maybe? )

Depending on the number of players we could pull the names "out of hat" and make up 2 teams, giving all the opportunity to play more than once.
I would try and get a few Winter league players involved but I knw that Jimmy n Spiros at Rainbow would be after a game. ( As would my neighbour, Makis )
And... Alexandra would probably give us a beating!

I could arrange the same type of thing for Lisa n Steve n Riggers of course.
( Just tell me the best dates that may suit )

Concentration? Just didn't happen. Double tops were erja and me laughing our heads off as they tried to fit the darts in the slots. And erja pleading for another beer...

" THE WORD ON THE STREET IS -- "

A young lad , an up n coming dart player will be in Arillas from the 1st September and is looking for some serious games to test his mettle.

His current tally of 120 plus  180's in practise and games could make him a hard man to beat. ( This info via Tim )
Timbo , his coach is always available to play and offer him suggestions but cannot hold him back on his scoring and finishing quality.
( The coach is never as good as the student - Unlucky Timbo)
Mum, Cheryl, has encouraged "her student" all the way to improve his game and she could have also been in the top 10 in the world but for an unfortuante accident........
......I'm told that in her last staged match she bounced off the tyre surround which, in turn, bounced off the stage and over the head of a supporte.r for her opponent.)
Comments and laughter ensued which caused a fistfight. She blames herself and now only plays for Retsina or Ouzo.

Consequenty, as all the above is going around Arillas, faster than Phil can drink a Vodka Frappe, many players could be lining up for a crack at this young master.
The Darts is on for Wednesday 2nd September.

As for me? - Well - I did lose 4-2 to Alexandra at Rainbow this pm. So I guess either I'm not good enough to take him on or I'm pretty damm good but Alex is better.
(Look out James - Alexandra is up for it! ) - As is Capt Bob from Night Owl and Dimitris and Spiros and Makis etc etc.

Cheers
Negg

Would so love to watch Alex beat you. No, nothing like that, just to see her talent at work. She is b****y good, isn't she?

You and many other followers of this new and growing passion around Arillas missed a very good Rainbow afternoon yesterday.

Welcomed long lost buddies Cheryl, Tim and James and many missiles were thrown.
Cheryl kept out the way, with Graham and Julie,just to be on the safe side.
Good games were had by all and young James is a very exciting and pretty accurate opponent to play. If could have his concentration................
(And , even Tim's hitting big red bits now - You big ole scorer you!)

Win or lose , and I only won a few, it's been a long time since I had new blood to play.
Even young Alexandra gave a good account of herself and raised her game to the quality of her new opponents.

Darts tonite, may be a knock out or team event.
Hoping to see Kev n Bev, Barry & Co. Erja & Co, Sandy, Cheryl & Co so...........
................ Watch this space for updates avrio.

Eggy's knackered people!

These late nights and long days are catching up on me!

Tuesday Night was a bring n Buy darts sale at Night Owl with a bumper raffle.
( Long night - much fun had by all and a pleasure to be beaten by Capt Bob who won the first prize of the "Golden Darts".)

Now.... Last night at Rainbow bought together 8 very good darts players to compete in the K/O. There was not an easy game to be had!

First Games were:-
Kev ( Of Kev n Bev ) vs Geoff ( On holiday here and hubby of Sheila - Forum Member)
Shame that Kevs, Darts Shirt with "Silver Fox" as a logo failed to help.

Poor Timbo , coach of James , son of Cheryl was drawn against James. -Bye Timbo.

Spiros ( Rainbow ) vs Alexandra ( daughter ) - Bravo Alexandra for concentraing and remembering that he's an opponent to be shot at and not your daddy.

Eggy vs Dimitris ( Rainbow ) - What easy progress for Jimmy.
( He did ask me if I had truned up !)

Then Geoff vs James - A cracker of a game which saw Geoff move one step forward.
Then Alexandra vs Dimitris - 2-1 to young 13+ year old Alex here.
( The girl done good )

Final - Geoff vs Alex. Alex popped a lovely 140 in the first leg but stuttered slightly and --- one down. She then made it one each but Geoff then won the decider!
A new Champ at the Rainbow!.- Well done Geoff - Hope to play a few games with you.

Points to note.
Spiros had 165 left and hit T20, T20 and then went for another - and missed
( I did remind him that, if he'd hit the third he would have bust - So? - He said - It's fun - I just wanted to hit 180!)

James misses 20's very rarely and holds his concentration well.
So does Geoff which is why their game was a cracker.
( Love to see them play another best of 3 - A pleasure to mark the board)

Alex can really play well but, just sometimes she beats herself.
( Two years time, if she continues to enjoy the game she will be very hard to beat! )

Timbo finds that red bit but now needs those doubles.
Dimitris , was like the man who you play in the Winter League. He takes no prisoners and the writing was on the wall when Eggy fell 100+ behind.

Kevin, the Silver Fox man. - Very unlucky. His first round was against the eventual winner. I think play that again and the result may be different.
Must get Kevin and Geoff and Alex etc together again.

A word for our supporters now.
Erja & Co. Barry & Co. Graham n Julie, Sandy and Howard. Cheryl of course.
Jen n Jan , I think. Two ladies that took part in the raffle and won again.
( They won a bottle of Ouzo the night before! )

I now have to go away and plan my competition strategy. Playing in the afternoon with a drink or two is not recommended if you want to continue it though the evening.
Too much falling down water will damage your arm.
( And , when you can see two treble 20's it's time to go home! )

That said 'tis a lotto fun.
Well done all there for making a good night out.
Negg

( Bugger - Is this a posting or have I just written a book ?? )

Yesterday afternoon I said my goodbyes to Cheryl, Tim n James and Graham and Julie.

I had hoped to put 3 group pics with them plus Kev n Bev but...... muggins here had the camera on a wrong setting and they were all blurred.
( I thought it was just me that was blurred ) - Sorry Guys!

Anyway, much darting fun had by me and all and I even manged to chat with Cheryl and Graham n Julie occassionally and leave darts out of the conversation.

I'm sure Tim n James must have bought many goodies over in Arillas because it, seems they had no room in the cases to take home all their leftover big darting scores.
So they used them here, and most of them they used on me!
A good afternoon and now I have to go back to being beaten by all the usual mob.
( Unless Kev , the Silver Fox knows different - Must get a pic of that shirt Kev)

** Watch this space **

Jill
Try www.puredarts.co.uk for darts cases. The Unicorn Maestro is the one I have and does come with three sets of spare stems and some extra flights and a darts sharpener plus some little flight protectors plus a card showing different shots.

The other good cases is the Unicorn Midi cases which should hold all his "ammo" quite well. - Postage is £1.00 so you can order as many accesories as you like.

Calum will improve his darts if he keeps practising. Some good double finishes and fancy missing 180 , not once but twice.
( Both times on the 3rd dart - When he gets that 3rd dart in then look out all!!)

Stay well

Hi Neill.  Calum went onto a website called Darts Corner and ordered a Unicorn Midi Wallet, he wouldn't wait and needed to order it NOW!  It was cheap enough so not a problem.
Thanks again for the darts he is at thisd minute sitting looking at the flites he bought at Night Owl.

Our Darts Winter League looks to be on target for an End of November start.

Sponsorship has already been received from JAC Transport and Red Dragon Darts.

JAC are very competitive on Haulage costs to and fro Corfu and are very welcome as I may ask them to bring some more boards over.

Red Dragon are to be thanked for the continuing sponsorship from last year and this year the Singles K/O winner will be a very happy man/woman indeed.

One more sponsor is needed and all will then be hunky dory. Villa Owner perhaps ?

The Coconut Bar has enjoyed it's first Summer season with a Red Dragon board and cabinet and Peri and Kostas, who don't do halves, even had tungsten darts available for customers. Who said there are no Dragons in Corfu?
(http://img205.imageshack.us/img205/8137/101009c.jpg)

Just take the time to view those scores people. - I was on the left, alledgedly!
This Winter may attract 5 Teams so Eggy , as reporter, mayhave hs work cut out.

I hit my first Winter 180 today ( In a long sleeved shirt - but no gloves )

and....

Lynn said she hit a double nine
Not against me, and that was fine.
And then , she hit a double 10,
I knew I was in trouble then.
Tungsten darts- 36 to g0
the trouble got worse - Donchyerknow
The double plopped
And my heart dropped
No win again.
Darts is a pain
Bugger!

Colin -don't let these ladies play better than us - Remove said finger and try harder!

Hi Neill,

Sorry, but I haven't had much chance to get on the forum lately, I hope you are well and congrats on the scoreline versus Perry.

You said James needed some stiffer competition so what do you reckon to this then.........??

Sadly no, it was an exhibition night held locally and I only found out at the last minute, so quickly grabbed the 2 remaining tickets. There were 16 tables of 12 and each had a nominated player who played 3 legs, they had to supply a photo and some 'walk on' music, this had already been decided by the time we got our tickets! :-(

There is talk of another event with Barney early next year, for which I am very prepared (my name is down with 3 pubs for tickets already), so hopefully we'll see him do his stuff on stage against a pro - I'll obviously keep you posted.

It was still a great night and Ronnie is a very down to earth, kind, funny man, and it was the first time for James to come close to an idol, he loved every minute of it, best £8 I have ever spent!! (tickets were £4 each!!!)

Mind you, James still managed to bang in a 180 in the pub 10 minutes before we went to the event, on the worlds worst dart board (condition wise)!! :-)

" EARLY WAKE UP CALL FOR LADY OWLS "

New Team, Owlettes, faced a big challenge by playing last years league winners, on their first game, and went down, in legs, 22-4 to the current holders,Night Owl.
Owlettes were certainly not disgraced and the highest score of the evening went to the Owls Linda with 117. Many games also went down to the double.

Three W's manage to hang on the Night Owls feathers with an 8-3 game (18-7 legs)  defeat of Armourada and face the Owlettes next week, who will now be much more relaxed and on their home board.

Nick from Armourada recorded a 180 in his singles game. Many of you may know Nick from the reclamation yard in Arillas ( Nick n Ros )
Armourda will "entertain" Night Owl on their home board next week and are a team not to be underestimated. Night Owl will have to sharpen their beaks , I think!

Cheers

I think the Night Owl Team could have used you last night!!

" Armourada pluck Owls feathers "

Current League Winners , Night Owl , took a commanding 5-3 lead over Armourada in their 11 game match last night. Armourada then bounced back.with two good singles wins by Armours Gary and Roger. At the scoreline of 5-5 it was down to the last singles game.  Gary vs Capt Bob @ Owl proved to be a very tight affair and , at 1 leg each, the Capt lost the deciding leg after missing that crucial double out.
Gary now has the best singles strike rate of 80% only losing one game in 5.

Owlettes faced Three W's at home and although 8-0 down failed to be demoralised. New reccruit Dawn, and in her first season of playing, duly took out last years singles K/O winner, Three W's Capt Pavlos, 2-0 with clinical double finishing.
Owlettes Linda again produced the merit scores and now is third, overall, in the 100 plus merit table. Final scoreline 10-1.

Armourada face Owlettes next week with Three W's away to the Owl. Pressure matches for all 4 teams which could turn the points table upside down.

Cheers

      " Three Doubles not enough for Three W's "

After three winning doubles, to hold a 3-3 result, THree W's failed to add to their tally and the internet bar "crashed" to an 8-3 by Night Owl, which puts the "Birds" back at the top of the tree.
Meanwhile... The Owlettes are now learning to fly and take 3 valuable points away from Armourada, who are chasing for the league winners spot. Owlettes face a daunting task to win the league but have again fired warning shots to other teams that they can take very crucial points away should opponents fail to sparkle.

On the singles front, Derek at Armourada holds a 100% record with 4 wins from 4, with Nickos,Night Owl, nudging from behind with 80% ( 4 from 5 ) and Capt Pavlos, Three W's, on 75% ( 3 from 4 )

It's very hard to judge the best Lady player so far as Owlettes Linda , Dawn and Miriam are all singles winners, as is Jean at Armourada. Best 100+ scores hit is Linda at the moment - Long way to go though!

To maintain the pressure on Night Owl, Three W's will be looking for a big win over Armourada next Tuesday. - ON ARMOURADA'S HOME BOARD? - Hmmmmm!

Current points Tally is:
Night Owl - 24
Three W's - 21
Armourada - 17
Owlettes - 4

You're support is well needed, I think, as next week we ( Three W's ) will need to beat Armourada 8-3/9-2 to keep up with Night Owl. Owlettes may take 3 games from the Owl so we need to keep the gap between us and Owl as small as possible,

Armourada have a very good team so a 8-3/9-2 against us will put them on the tail of the Owl. - All very close and nail biting for a "Not To Serious" league.

I'm on an 80% record here only dropping 3 legs in pairs and nil legs in singles but it's very hard work. Some good 'ole players here and haven't played the best yet.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sara - I'm hoping , by mid season, Night Owl will need all the support they can get!
But, a good solid team though and Capt Bob "knows his onions"

   "Early Christmas Stuffing for Owlettes"

Night Owl take a healthy 8 point lead, in the N.T.S Darts League, with an 11-0 win over Owlettes. Though , If points had been given for the most Bulls hit the Owlettes would have won 4-0 with 2 from Penny, and 1 each from Dawn and Ann.
Three W's, at 5-3 down to Armourada, finally managed to claw back a victory, wiining the last 3 games. A 6-5 result either way being a fiar result as both sides struggled with the doubles. Armourada's Senan was very unlucky, just missing a 157 checkout, with his last dart just falling under double top.
Capt Bob and Paul, Night Owl, head the "League Consistency Table" with 90% and 88.9% respectively with Derek(Armourada) and Capt Pavlos(Three W's) just behind, both on 81.8%.
A 2 week break now, for Christmas, with open K/O;s organised will give players a chance of practising those doubles. First K/O at The Coconut on Saturday.

   A very Merry Xris.................

....... anthos ( Chrisanthos ) has won our N.T.S first open darts K/O for this season.

From an entry of 16 good players no one had an easy draw and the likes of Eggy (Three W's), Dimitris (Night Owl) and Makis ( Night Owl ) "retired" early.

The semi-final line up saw Capt Bob ( Owl ) vs Xrisanthos with Capt Pavlos ( W's) against Armouradas Gary.  With a league singles average of 82% against Gary's 42%, the "money" would have gone on Three W's to make the final. Gary had other ideas and Pavlos sat down , losing 2-1. The final was nip n tuck all the way with a very releived Xris hitting the crucial double.

An excellant evening at Armourada who, once again, proved great hosts and laid on vast quantities of (Greek) sausage and chips for players and all supporters.

Next Tuesday takes the open K/O to Three W's. Can Xrisanthos make it a double by winning on his Home board?
Cheers
Negg

Capt Bob, ( 80% average ) once again looked to be favourite but nobody told Xrisanthos that and clean doubles out won him the game.

....... anthos ( Chrisanthos ) has won our N.T.S first open darts K/O for this season.


It's also a Happy New Year for Xrisanthos as he "done the double" and won the open singles at Three W's on Tuesday, taking the scalp of Capt.Pavlos on the way.
His opponent , in the final was Rainbow/Night Owl's Spiros who produced some very good darts to eliminate his brother Dimitris who, in turn, produced a good display of high scoring to send his Capt. Bob to an early sit down.

The question now is:-
 "Have Three W's issued a warning to League leaders, Night Owl, that their 8 point lead is in danger of being severley whittled down in 2010.

       " TER-WIT , TER-WOO - OWLETTES WIN 2 "

The new ladies Team from Night Owl once again prove they are not a "Free Match Point Dispensing Machine" and took 2 valuable points from Three W's last night.
Three W's players still licking their wounds are Doug, who lost 2-0 to a very improved Dawn, who must have sneaked some Xmas practice in, and Willy, who lost 2-0 to Ann, whose game sharpens up more every week.
(So, it was back to the Ouzo for Doug and back to the Wash House for Willy)
Margueritta played very well and took a leg from Eggy and Hubbie Xris in 2 games which could have gone either way!

So, Three W's move to the number one spot by one point. This may change when Night Owl meet Armourada at the weekend.

        "Will Owl's Arrows bounce off strong Armour Tonight"

With only a 5 point lead, and on level games, Night Owl may face a tough challenge tonight from Armourada who beat them 6-5 at Home. Armourada beat Owlettes last Night, on the Owl board, 8-3, so are now looking to do the double.
Another 8-3 result tonight puts them on level points with 6 matches to play.

Last nights match produced some fine darts from Margueritta and Linda ( Owl ) with both winning singles games and partnering each other also won thier pairs.
Jean Marsh, together with hubbie Senan, (Armour ) proved that she not only creates super paintings but can also hit doubles. They won their pairs and singles games dropping only one leg..

On legs won the final result was 18-9. Owlettes improve with each game and both Armourada and Three W's are hoping they keep it up for thier match, against the Owl, next week.

              "" OWLS HOOT - SHOOT and HIT """

Owls hold top spot in the N.T.S League with a very hard fought victory over Armourada last night. In a match that produced 14 scores of 100+ , with 5 of those by Derek, Armourada, the stage is now set for the 2nd half of the season.

On results, Armourada, look a stronger team than Three W's, who take on Owl at their Home board tonight. Three W's will be looking to avenge their previous away 8-3 defeat and need a convincing win to maintain the pressure on the leaders.

        "THREE W-ay CHALLENGE FOR WINNERS TITLE"[/size

At 2 games each, last night between Three W's and Night Owl, it was on the cards for a 6-5 result, either way. And then the Owl shot into a 5-2 lead with the trio of Eggy,Xris and Alan all losing their singles. But, thanks to some determined play, or was it alcohol, Three W's pulled back to a 5-5 scoreline. The last singles was Capt Pavlos vs Capt Bob which Pavlos clinched 2-0 to take the match.

With the second half of the season, starting Tuesday, Armourada will be looking for a convincing win over the Owl whilst Three W's will want to beat the ladies 10-1 to maintain the pressure. - A very hard ask indeed but miracles can happen.

Armourada launched their bid, to take the NTS Darts Title, with a convincing win over Night Owl last night. At 6-2 up, Armours Roger and Senan clinched two extra valuable points in the singles and it was only thanks to Dimitris, Rainbow, in the last game that gave the Owl an extra consolation point. Final result 8-3

Three W's move into top spot now with a 10-1 result over Owlettes but the lead may be short lived as they meet Armourada next Tuesday whilst Owlettes have to Handle the Owl.

Night Owl  - 49

Riggers - Not any more.

        " Armour goes from strength to strength "

Three W's, playing at home, suffered a large setback, in their challenge for the League title, losing 8-3 to an on form Armourada.  Armours Gary hit a match winning 180 and together with Heather ended Negs and Xris's 100* record. Gary had already hit a maximum in practice.

Night Owl took advantage of Three W's defeat to beat Owlettes 10-1 and now move back to the top spot, by 3 points. The Owl meet the W's next Tuesday and both will want a large winning scoreline. A 6-5 either way may open the door for Armourada who play Owlettes at the Owl.

Oh Dear John Boy!!

                 " OWL BEAK-COMING HARD TO BEAT !! "

After crashing out 8-3 to Armour, last week , Three W's have done the double, but in the wrong way! They lost 8-3 to a strong Owl side last night who are now busy feathering their nest with all those extra points. Three W's Xrisanthos saved a little face by winning both his singles whilst Negg just scraped home with a 2-1 over Owlie Paul. Negg had never got a look in earlier against a very in form Nickos who, pounded 19's ,including a 133 plus a 171 and an 11 dart leg, sent Negg back to his Ouzo table.

A good win by Armourada, over Owlettes tonight, will put them in 2nd spot and having beat The Owl and Three W's before may just be the team to turn this winners title to their favour.

And so we continue............................

Wednesday "Knights Armour" team throws down the gauntlet l

Armourada still keep the pressure on the Night Owl with a 10-1 win over Owlettes last night. Only 7 points adrift now they will need 2 convincing wins to challenge for the NTS League title. It can be done. Three W's, now relegated to third spot, will need at least 16 points from 22 in their next two games to turn the tables on Armour and the Owl. Meanwhile, Owlettes sit nicely back, without pressure and continue to spring the odd suprise. - As did Miriam and Margueritta last night with their 2-1 win and Linda who took Derek to a third leg in two games of singles. Possibly a shock for Derek here as he's 83% top of the averages and top of the merit table with 16 scores of 100+.
Anything can happen in this game.

Nan - A late thanks to you for this info,
To think I nearly backed Paul Nicholson to win the tournament - Aaaarrrgh!

Anyway.......................

There are no easy games in the NTS K/O competitions!
( I calculate all players "Win % Rates" so watch the percentages in the brackets )

 In the league singles K/O , Gary from Armourada (65%) fought his way to a semi final slot, taking the scalps of Owls Dimitris (76%) and Capt Bob (69%) on the way.
He will now meet Willy of the wash house (56%) who upped his game to take out Derek, Armourada (83%)
The other Semi Final sees Capt Pavlos from Three W's (74%) attempt to beat Capt Penny , from Owlettes who hit 2 mean doubles to take out Negg (72%)
Bugger says Negg.

The Pairs K/O saw Capt Bob and Nickos from the Owl, maintain their 100% record to beat Negg and Xris (75%) who earlier had ended the 100% record of Owls combi Paul n Spiros.
Bob n Nickos will compete the final against Gary and Derek from Armourada. For Gary and Derek this is a new partnership so watch this space.

The Team K/O , 3 a side produced a good 5-2 win for Night Owl "A" against Three W's "B" whilst the other THree W's combi of Pavlos,Negg,Xris saw off Owlettes 5-0.
( Revenge here for Negg against Capt Penny )
Armourada produced a fine 5-2 win over Night Owl "B" with a fine performance from Heather , Jean and Gary. ( Gary 4 x 100 plus and 2 x 140 )
The "Clash of Titans" next week sees the Armour take on Night Owl "A" whilst Three W's "A" will have to maintain all reflexes as coiled springs to beat the second Team from the Owlettes.

Thanks go to those Arillas Forum sponsors whose donations for individual awrds have gone a very long way to further the interest of all us players here.
Names not mentioned unless I have permission. But I hope to arrange many meetings for you with these "invisable" darters

(OK! - Who fell asleep after the first 2 lines of this post ? )
Cheers
Negg

Well, not me Negg! Love reading these posts. Gives me a feeling of being there. You know Jen and I love to watch whilst supping a few.... Would have been lovely to be able to sit in on many of these matches.

Maybe next year...

Ah Geoffrey! Jen and I have many sides to us. The more obvious one - drunk, rebel-rousing party-animals might be real, but so are all the others. We both love to sit in a taverna sipping Mythos or Amstels, chatting and watching the darts. And to sit together in Graziella with a mezes lunch just watching Gravia in case it moves. Or simply sunbathing on the beach/by the pool (we differ there.)

We're just more fun to be with when in party-mode!

Thanks for your post - made us both laugh.
Phil

Wise Old Ow,l Capt Bob's smiling

This could be read as - "Why is old Capt Bob smiling?

Whether a statement of question, he'smiling because, barring any disasters, The Night Owl team are on target to retain the League Winners sheild for the 2nd Winter.
In a very exciting match against Armourada they secured a fine 8-3 win which now means that, although Three W's took 10 points from Owlettes, Capt Bob's team command a 6 point lead. Two matches left and Three W's have to play Owl and Armour. They will need at least 18 points of the 22 on offer to have any chance of an upset. - A big ask indeed.
That said, Owlettes continue to spring suprises in matches, as they last night, when the pairs combi of Margueritta & Linda took out Mick & Willy. This ended Mick's 100% record. Maybe Owlettes next suprise will be a 8-3 win over "Bobby's Boys" ?

Cheers

 "Eggs Three W's poach 7-4 and crack Armours Shell"

Meanwhile..... Night Owl left Owlettes with shell shock, but still yolking after being beaten 11-0.  Owlettes did manage to scramble home with a few eggs, sorry legs, though.
It may be "ada" for the Armour, next week, to hatch a similar result with Omlettes
(Sorry Owlettes)

Three W's now need to beat the Owl 11-0 to win the title. With only one match left this seems a hard boiled task indeed. Night Owl will soon whisk the winners sheild away and feather their nest ready for next Winter. Three W's will have to "lay" low and together with Armour and Owlettes plan to fry a little in the Summer Sun then come back with a vengeance next Winter.
We all look forward to presentation of awards when Capt Bob and Team will all, no doubt, be twittering away with glee and WHY NOT!
Cheers

Negg, how could you? Pay back time, I think..........

I had an absolutely fantastic time last night in the Amourada, because of the such good company, the atmosphere, the celebrations when Nikos won & of course, the flowing drinks helped!!..... These Arillians are leading me astray everyone. Lol
I also realized what a fantastic job Negg does at organising all the darts events. It's thanks to Negg that certain people have such a wonderful social life & I think he deserves a huge round of applause from everyone for all the time & effort he puts in to making these night's a night to remember [& working out the statistics!!] (http://bestsmileys.com/clapping/2.gif)

Ah Sara. Eggy's name in lights at last. But in chalk on a blackboard at least. Our Arillas owes him a bloody great round of applause for creating all this.

I justloved his picture of you with the camera. Cringe????? You reminded me of Jen's lifelong  friend Maggie and her gorgeous mother Pat. And father who was another me, a drunk who knew what life was about.

So do you and Gary.  Live every minute you get at villa Theia.

Just picked this up - Sorry

Kevin - You smooth talking Devil you!

I didn't really know how popular this game is around Roda n Acharavi.

Last week , Three W's held an open K/O , organised by moi. We had two boards on the go and 27 people played at e5 per person entry. The games were sponsored by a couple of local traders and the prize fund was e100 to the winner and e50 to the R/U.
Both also received trophies to keep.

From 11.am, to the finish of the matches, there must have been 40 people plus in Three W's ( Players n supporters ) The final finished at 6 ish and then someone organised a pairs K/O - I went home shattered at 6:30 - Long day but lots of fun.

Good for Three W's though. And we , together with Night Owl got two players through to the quarter finals! Alan n Capt Bob.
Unfortuately they were drawn to play each other.Alan won but then got beat in the semi. The final was won by a wise old veteran called Terry, from Roda.
(Won the Leicester Open many years ago and has played the likes of Lowe n Wilson )
Last one out of the hat for the draw and last one standing.

Many Greeks play this game very well and I think it's their laid back attitude that does them proud. One day they may have a player in the top 6 -------------
------------  If they finally get around to it and not Avrio.

Cheers

Arillas recently said bye bye's and Kalo Taxidi to Jersey Steve and Jersey John plus families. Like many others they will also be very sorely missed and they all were an instant hit with everybody here. - Very sad to see them go.

The extra bonus for me was that Steve n John were perdy damm good dart players and two Knock outs were organised at the Rainbow.

The first one was an all Jersey affair and the likes of Capt Bob, my neighbour Makis and yours truly were blown away in fine style.

The second gave the locals a bit of revenge with Alexandra, daughter of Rainbow Spiros meeting Makis in the Final. ( Alexandra only 14 and a hard player to beat )
B U G G E R !! - Should never have taught her the game!

Bottom line was much fun had by all and what a feather in the cap of Arillas to have two familes from Jersey holidaying here. I love Jersey to bits - Wottanicaplacertobea!

A few pics from what were super evenings.

John who won the first K/O and apart from many congrats also got a bottle of Ouzo.

OK , I confess I do not look like I'm alive in these two pics. Twas a long night.
But....... All it takes is a lovely Jersy Lady to perk up an 'ole git!

Excellant times and many here hope to see you all here next year, good people.

He might be older and fitter than me, but he will never catch me up in the dancing stakes. Soles fell off me shoes that night in the Nut. Literally.

Last nights Darts activity at the Rainbow produced some very interesting games.

Attended by Nan, Mary H, Katerina n Enid with Cheryl and daugther looking-
-------- Let battle commence

Mr Corfusoon was up for it and "soon" 4-0 down iin "Corfu". But he did get the hang of the game and just missed 136 out with 2 x treble 20's.
(Very unlucky Frank - WOTSITALLABOUT?)

Playing a "Round Robin" gave some good results with Rainbow resident, Geoff, tying with Alexandra 4-4. ( Poor Dimi at Rainbow , losing 2-0 )

The final  was won by Geoff beating Alex 2-0 and a worthy super bottle of wine went his way.

So..................... Who muscled in on the dartboard when we all "retired".

I think they are all having a good time here.

Very pleased to spend time with Mick n Jill n Calum this afternoon in the Nut.
Young Calum has given many here a lot of pleasure in the way he plays the game and the consistency he can acheive. He is a real "Mister Cool"  and shows little emotion.

Our N.T.S. Darts league has presented him with a lifetime membership and a certificate, duly signed by all Team Captains and Nickos from the Owl ( No.1 Seed ) was duly presented to him this afternoon.
.
(http://i924.photobucket.com/albums/ad84/neillegg/260910d-1.jpg)
.
He's a good young lad and showed his appreciation by letting me beat him 4-3.
I hope that during the week he will meet a few more of our Winter League players and get some more games in.
CALUM vs ALEXANDRA - Now that's a game I will mark as the best of 7!!

Cheers All

CALUM vs ALEXANDRA - Now that's a game I will mark as the best of 7!!
Clash of the (young) Titans??? Just make sure Jen and me are there to witness it! We wouldn't miss it for the world.

We support lots of sports  from the bar (just like we do the Arillas NTS league.) But yours is more personal to us. 

Our best wishes to the league. Will always support, but play? Er no.....

Neill,

Firstly, I apologise for my lack of forum activity over the last year or so and also both James and myself were sorry to have missed seeing you again earlier this year.

However, we (Cheryl mainly), thought you might like to see these!

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v648/slimbo/17969_336617047888_517487888_4648190_1803058_n.jpg)

Anyway, we are still keeping up with the practice (I need it, James doesn't!) and hope to put it to use against you again sometime! :-)

I hope you are all keeping well :-)

p.s I'll try not to be so much of a stranger to the forum too!

Take care mate. Tim

Peter Manley? Adrian Lewis? - Wot Sorta crowd you mixing with?
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Our Winter Darts League kicks off, around 9th November, and I'm pleased that we now have 6 teams competeing. THis is a real boost for those Tavernas like Night Owl and Armourada and Three W's which are able to stay open over these months and the services which they offer help to make a good Winter for all of us.

The more teams the merrier and much sponsorship has been offered to make the league more interesting and help to introduce more people.

Yiotas Tourist Shop, Brouklis and Coconut Bar are all giiving prizes this year.
Plus Villa Linakis and Villa Theia and JAC Transport and Corfu Estate Agents.

I have also taken the liberty of getting a couple of awards engraved as -
"Arillas Forum Members"
This is because I have already had some very welcome support from those who enjoy reading this darts posting.
The more the merrier, I say, so If you have a spare euro the send it to Eileen.
Obviously there are many, many more needy causes than darts but every thing helps to keep the league alive and when the league does well so do the Tavernas.

This Winter I plan to take pics of all darts teams competing and put names to faces so you lucky lot just might bump into them next Summer.

MARGuERITtAS MAGIC MAXIMUM DRIVES WILD WOMEM WILDER

Wild Wild Women , the new Ladies team at Three W's, got an early match boost last night in their first game of the NTS Winter League, with a perfect 180 score, from up n coming team mate Margerita. Not to be outdone, a few throws later, she hit a very unselfish 177 to leave her partner double 4.  (Another 180 would only have left 5)
Armour Plated, the new team from Armourada were very hard pushed but finally came out on top with a 7-4 match win.

Armourada made it a double Armour victory by beating Night Owl, current champs, by 6 games to 5 with a last game decider. Three W's meet Owlettes tonight and probably look to jump into an early lead at the Owlettes expense. But Owlettes may have something to say about that.

W.ell W.ell W.ell - Who would have thought that.........

Three W's , A team would have taken all 11 points from Owlettes in their first match of the Winter League. Owlettes put up a brave fight but and 4 games could have gone either way but W's were a little stronger and luckier on the finishing.

Early days yet in the ladies singles table but Margueritta holds top spot with a 71% average and Armouradas Ann sitting nicely in second with 67%.
Figures based on legs played and legs won.

WOW I wish I was there to see it!!

Isn't it funny that those days in September watching you and Corfusoon playing with Marqueritta's hubby seem such a long time ago now! The lovely little lad from the midlands aswell played with enthusiasm if not blinding accuracy. Oh happy days!

C'mon girls! Isn't it strange when you mention legs I don't seem to equate it with darts when it's the girls playing!! I am going to apologise unreservedly for that last remark but if a fella had said it he would be booted off the forum!!

Happy throwing!

Amourada "A" penetrate Armourada's Armour Plated's "B" at Armourada

The three way 2 team clash, all at Home Tavernas, bought in some shock results.

Eggs team,Armour Plated. at 5-5 lost the deciding game to "veterans" Armourada whilst last years winners, Night Owl, left the Owlettes hanging in a tree with an 11-0 whitewash. Three W's Margueritta saved a whitewash for her team, against the men, by winning her singles. But, even at a 10-1 result the Wild Wild Women were certainly not taimed and were just as wild at the end of the games.
(SO I'M TOLD)

Armour Plated Derek scored the second 180 of the league.
Armourada's Gary heads the league merit table with 6 scores of a 100+.
Margueritta remains top of the ladies table.

Next week will see the "Big Guns" clash with Three W's vs Night Owl. Both teams will be after convincing wins as a 6-5 either way will allow both the "Armours" to close that points gap.

Cheers

What Went rong?
Three W's guns were certainly "spiked" by Night Owl in last weeks clash and the Owl flew away convincing 10-1 winners. Clinical double finishing by the Owls prevented W's from getting into the game. Both Armour teams managed 9-2 wins over Owlettes and Wild Women with Margueritta notching a second 180 for the Wild ones.

Owls still on cloud nine

Night Owls found all the chinks in armour Plated and continued their flight for a 3rd Winter Title. Owls Nickos recorded the highest shot out, so far with 128.
Meanwhile Three W's bounced back, from last week, at Armouradas expense, and notched a convincing 8-3 victory tokeep them in second spot.
Both Armour teams are now feeling a little tarnished but there is a long way to go.
The Owlettes and Wild Women clash saw the Lady Owls notch up their first win with a 6-5 result.

Current Points after 4 Matches are:-

Night Owl 34
Three W's 30
Armourada and Armour Plated 24 each
Wild Wild Women 12
Owlettes 8                                                                      Cheers Negg

" Aaargh-More " problems for W's

Armour Plated produced a shock result last night by taking out Three W's 7 games to 4.
Xrisanthos (W's) lost his unbeaten record courtesy of Armour's Derek but W's Pavlos got revenge,a little later, beating Derek 2-1. Five ton plusses and winning both his singles must make him man of the match.
The legs score of 17-13 must reflect just what a hard match was had by all.

Night Owl must be counting their chickens now as they beat the Wild Ladies of W's by 10 games to 1. Makis ( Owl ) maintains his unbeaten singles record and recorded an 11 dart 301 in the process. ( An average of just over 27 per dart ) Success, however got to his head and, together with Paul, they lost the only game to Capt. Brenda and Barbara. - ( Just how did Brenda achieve that 131 score? )
Tonight sees Armourada "A" take on the Owlettes. They have to be looking at a 10-1 result to keep pressure on those birdies who want to win for the third time.
But.....The Owlettes may have something to say about that!.

Armourada trying "ada" & "Ada"

Armourada "A", last night snipped the Owlettes talons with a crushing 10-1 victory and now sit, alongside Three W's, with 34 points, both 10 points behind the Night Owl.
Owlettes Penny won the only game for her Team whilst Gary, Armourada, popped a 180 plus 4 other scores of 100+. Armourada's Roger hit the highest shot out this Winter,so far, with a 145.

Armour Plated, Three W's and Armourada all now issue a challenge to the Owl and will look to reduce that 10 point+ deficit in the returns.

Cheers

Night Owls "Heavy Metal" Darts "Ada" than Armourada's Armour

Night Owl proved once again that they can not only:-
 "Hoot and **it" but "Shoot and hit"
In a match which produced 20 scores of 100+ from the Owl,  including a 180 and a 100 out by a certain "Rainbow Jimmy" ,  Armourada were never given the chance to show the ability they have and finished the night as 9-2 losers.
But Amour's Jean proved why she was last years ladies singles winner by taking her singles 2-1 and a 90 out by Gary plus a 2-1 win against "Capt Bob" is a reminder to the Owl that the League's not won till the FAT LADY....................?

Meanwhile................... Armour Plated continue to thrive on luck and were very fortunate to beat the Wild Ladies of Agious Stephanos by 8-3.. Player of the evening has to be Athena of the ladies who beat "Plated Doug" by 2-1 and finishing with 119 out.

Three W's mens team continue to apply the pressure on Night Owl with an 11-0 result over Owlettes, whose double finishing continues to frustrate them.

Night Owl lead the table on 53 points with Three W's 2nd on 45.Cheers

"Plated" would have given as "Armour-Leg" to have.............

.......won at least one of the last 4 games in their match against Armourada "A" team.
At 5-2 up it looked to be all going Armour Plated's way but then metal fatigue set in and rivets rusted and not another leg or game was won. Final result 6-5 Armourada "A".

Wild Wild Women and Owlettes have made a 2 New Years resolutions.
1. To play with flights in their darts.
2. To throw from closer than 12 ft.
These decisions were made after both teams crashed out 11-0 respectively toThree W's and Night Owl, who both increase their lead over both Armour and Ladies Teams.
Current Points - Night Owl 64 - Three W's 56.

Three doubles U know is not enough to win for Three W,s

The big guns clash, at Three W's last night proved double trouble for the Home team and 6 games could have gone 2-1 either way. Night Owl, however, feather their nest with a fine 8-3 win and now look odds on favourites to win the league for the third Winter. Captain Bob can be heard "terwit-terwoooing" all around Afionas.

Meanwhile, Armour Plated scraped together an 8-3 win over Owlettes with Leszek popping his first 180, - 6 maxes now scored in the league so far this Winter.

Armourada attempted to tame the Wild Women of Three W's with a 9-2 win but I fear that these Wild LAdies will be back next week, as wild as ever.

Night Owl have not lost a home game in 3 seasons so it will be up to Armour Plated to see if they break this "tradition" next Tuesday.

OWLS MOVE "FEATHER" AHEAD

Armour Plated failed to survive those 22-26gram Owl missiles last night and crashed to a 3-8 game defeat.  Although Three W's put in a fine perfomance against Armourada, with a 7-4 win, it was not enough to close on the leaders.

Another 100% singles record was lost last night.
 Negg (4 from 4) vs Night Owls Nickos (5 from 5)
It was a Nickos 2 legs to 1 victory. - Bugger!!

Armourada's Gary moved back on top of the 100+ merit table with scores of 100, 120, 123, 125,140.

Current Points are:-
Night Owl 80 - Three W's 66, Armourada 55, Armour Plated 55.

The Owlettes play the Wild Wild Women tonight.

" W's hit for 6 by Armour Plated "

Three W's challenge for the top spot, in the Winter  N.I.S Darts league, took a tumble on Tuesday when, after 3 games to zero up, they lost the next 6. Many games could have gone to a toss of coin as doubles were hard to find but with an end result of losing 6-5 this gives the W's a very steephill to climb,especially as Night Owl beat the Wild Ladies of Three W's 11-0 and now have a commanding lead of 20 points.
(Not even a bull out by Wild Brenda could stop them)

The Owlettes looked to be pecking away at Armourada A, on Wednesday, and with the scoreline sitting at 4-4 feathers must have been fluttering thinking about a match win.
However, not to be and Armourada came away with a 7-4 result.

With only 5 games left the league table reads:-
Night Owl - 91 with 9 games won, Three W's 71 with 7 games won, Amour Plated and Armourada 61 both with 6 games won.
Wild Wild Women 24 and Owlettes 21. with one game each.

"" Owls give "The Bird" to all other teams""

But in the nicest possible way , of course! Their 11-0 punishing of Owlettes, allowing them to only win 1 leg, has firmly roosted them to an unbeatable 3rd Winter win.
(Although such a result against partners/wives may see them suffer over the long term)

Three W's, being especially nice people, won 10-1 and 20 legs to 6, over the Wild Women and have probably, very diplomatically, ensured a peaceful home life.

The Armour clash saw the "Plated" team secure a very nice 8-3 result but not enough to challenge for the top spot.

All Teams will now, I'm sure, have their own targets to meet over the next 4 matches.
Armourada will strive to finish above Armour Plated in the league.
Three W's will fight on to secure 2nd spot for the third season but will have to watch out for the Armour duo who will both be after points.
W's and both Armour sides will still be looking to beat those pesky Owls. A feat that only Armourada have done this winter
Owlettes and Wild Wild Women will surely be fighting to see who does not finish at the root of the table. So, watch this space folks.

Something you can , maybe, learn in the very near future.

This weeks on going report for all you (few) interested parties.

"Armour Plated nailed on for 11-0 but............"
Owlettes never say die and took the last two games, taking a valuable two points away from "Eggies Boys".
With the Armourada "A" quartet of Gary,Senan,Jean and Heather beating the Wild Ladies of Three W's 10-1, the question asked now is:-
"Which "Armour" Team will finish above the other??"
Night Owl, however, march fearlessly on and brushed Three W's away with a 10-1 win.
( Although they admit that many games went 2-1 and it was a lucky result! )

It's all private battles now and Armour Plated will look to pluck those Owls next week.
(They do have a 30 point lead so can afford to give some points away)

Loving these reports Eggy. Our (premature) cogratulations to Night Owl. But like others, I too am waiting to see which Armourada team ends above the other. Lots of potential for fallings out there I guess... (but always good hearted I expect.)

Almost (I said almost ) sad to see winter over, and the end of the darts for another summer. But somehow I still can't wait for the holiday season to begin...

"" Armour-Nades Artist Paul Assists Afionas Owls Against Arillas Armouradas Armour Plated ""
(I use "artist" relating to his alcohol consumed)
At 4-0 down, and then pulling back to 4-2, Armour Plated were on target for a come back. But the Owls pairs duo of Rainbow Dimitris and Capt Bob then made it 5-2.
It was then down to Armenades neighbour Paul to clinch yet anoher victory for Capt Bob's Birdies. He duly obliged and the Owls can now sit back and begin to taste the league winners trophy. - Final result 9-2 for the Owls
It was a night of yet another 100% singles record crashing, this time thanks to Armours Doug beatng Owls Makis. This leaves Night Owls Nickos as the only unbeaten singles player in the league with 12 wins from 12, his last two wins being at the expense of Armours Negg and Derek.
Armourada "A Team" players will surely be after his scalp when they next meet.

Unfortunately, not against each other.
Owlettes flocked together as a team,last night to beat the Wild Women of Three W's with a 10-1 win which takes them off the bottom of the table.
A very nice feather in the hat for Owlettes and look out Amour Plated and Night Owl as those Wild Ladies will now surely be looking for revenge in their last two games.

Now darts means about as much to me as it does to Eileen, but everyone was having such a great time and in true Corfiot fashion it was involving everyone in the bar - friends and strangers alike.

"Armour Plated shell shocked by Wily Winning Ways"

A wise W's Captain called Al
shrewdly played his team very well
And at 6-1 down
It made the Plated lot frown
So......
They then started to thrive
With the final result? ...6-5.

A good and fair result from a very good and enjoyable evening but the narrow winning margin does neither team any favours.
"Sister" team Armourada now move into 2nd spot after a very fine 11-0 win over Owlettes. (Poor Claire, Owlettes 2 treble 20's - Where did that 3rd dart go???)
It will be very interesting next week with:-
Armourada 94 points - Three W's 91 - Armour Plated 85.

" Owls Beak-Come Tree Time Champs "
Night Owl's last match, in the NTS Darts Winter League, saw them cement their 3rd season win beating Armourada 8-3 and finishing top of the league with 140 points (85% winning average)
But, it was a last match game where feathers were ruffled and scalps were taken by Armourada.
Night Owls, Nickos's unbeaten run of 14 from 14 singles came to an end when losing 2-1 to Armourada's Gary who also beat Owl's Makis 2-0. (Makis's only 2nd singles loss this Winter).
And.....Gary's team mate, Ann, beat Owl's Dimitris 2-1, (Only his fourth defeat in 16 games)
Final Points Totals:-
Night Owl -140
Three W's - 100
Armourada - 97
Armour Plated - 94
Owlettes - 35
Wild Women - 29.
 
The first and second rounds of the Team Knock outs have produced a coupla shocks.
Nickos, Dimitris and Makis (Owl) flew through to the final with 4-0 wins over Owlettes and Armour Plated and a 4-2 win over Three W's. In the top half of the draw,  But..... Gary,Roger and Senan took out the 3w's and Owls 2nd teams. - Twill be a good final.
 
The Round Robin, where the top 2 from each team played each other, was a very hard fought match.
In a three group tussle, Xrisanthos, (W's), beat Nickos 2-1, and with 2 other wins moved to the final. The second group winner , Gary, was joined by group 3 winner, Owl's Makis, who "dun the job" on Negg with a 2-0 final shoot out.
In the final, Makis and Gary found a very on form Xris who, beating both of them, took the winners trophy.
 
Xrisanthos maintained his form in the pairs K/O and, with Negg, moved to the semi finals beating last years winners Gary and Derek (Armourada) The pairs semi's now read:-
Makis & Nickos vs Bob & Jean
Xris & Negg vs Dimitris & Spiros
Hmmmmm! - 5 Owls , 2 Armours and a Three W's - Pick the bones from that!
The Ladies singles K/O bought together a small but well known group of "veterans" The final saw Armourada's Ann, (a league average of 67% on singles & pairs), beating Three W's Margerita, (2 x 180's and 8 singles wins during the season), by 2 games to 1.
 
The League singles gets under way next Wednesday and the draw could produce a few upsets. Gary (Armour) could be meeting Dimitris (Owl) in his semi final draw and Owl's Capt Bob stands a good chance of being there to meet him. The other semi could see Armours Doug playing, against........ ? - A choice of Nickos, Makis , Xris , Senan and Ann in that group.....
Who  Knows!. - There are others not mentioned who could change this prediction completely!.
Cheers

" ANNE BYRNE'S & SINGES OWL'S FEATHERS"

Who remembers that old song "Ann-ie thing Yowl can do...........?"

The draw for the Singles K/O, in the NTS Darts, proved to be very favourable for the Owl boys and we should all be forgiven for thinking that, in both semi-finals, it would be an all Owl event. Armours Anne had something to say about that and duly despatched Owl's Makis, whilst Xrisanthos (W's) made Nickos (Owl) sit down early. W's "veteran", Doug, then sent Xris to share a table with Nickos after winning 2-0 with clinical double finishes. For the semi-final place it was Anne who sent Dougie away to join his pals at the table..
She will now meet Spiros(Owl) who won his 1-1 decider against Douglas (Armour) and Owl's Capt Bob, at the expense of Negg, meets Owl's Dimitris who beat  Pavlos (W's) and recorded a 156 out on his route to the semis.

So, will it be a "Rainbow/Owl Boys" final - Dimitris and Spiros?
Or..... will Capt Bob show his team how the game is played?
Or......will Anne just continue to "BYRNE" the opposition away?

Cheers
Negg

     " WISE OWLS ON TARGET FOR GRAND SLAM "
Although Armourada put in a gentle reminder to Night Owl, on Tuesday nights Team K/O, that their "Armour" can withstand an onslaught of arrow the Owls combi of,Dimitris,Makis and Nickos, eventually found chinks in the Armour Team of Gary, Roger and Senan winning the match by 4-2.  Once again a very good evening with team spirit and fair play becoming outright winners.
The gesture , by Both Teams, to put all prize money back into the league was a bonus for all league members.
(Negg also won a "consulation" singles K/O the same evening and has also donated the winnings back to the league).
 
Also, as League Winners, Night Owl, are now after for the Pairs and Singles K/O titles to make it a four timer.
 
The draw is:-
PAIRS SEMI - FINALS
Dimitris and Spiros (Rainbow Owls) vs Negg and Xrisanthos (These Rainbow boys haven't lost a game of pairs yet!!)
Makis and Nickos (Owls) vs Capt Bob (Owl) and Jean (Armourada)
SINGLES SEMI -FINALS
Dimitris (Owl) vs Capt Bob (Owl) ----- (Bob tells me he's gonna put his flights in for this one!!)
Anne (Armourada) vs Spiros (Owl) --- (Could this be the end of the Rainbow for Spiros and a pot of gold for Anne?)

“ Will Owl’s Capt Bob be singing the Birdie Song on Awards Night? “
  “With a pretty double nine and a lovely double top then shake your --- etc etc”

Capt Bob’s superior finishing rewarded him with the 2011 Singles K/O Winner’s Trophy, plucking the feathers of Team Mates and Rainbow duo,  Dimitris and Spiros on the way. The pairs K/O was also an Owl’s final and bought together Makis n Nickos (A semi final win over Capt Bob & Armouradas Jean) against those Rainbow boys  (A semi final win over Negg & Xrisanthos).  In a final, with both pairs holding 100% records all Winter, a cracker of a game was on the cards. Played the best of a 5 legs 501 it was Nickos and Makis coming out on top with a 3 -1 result.

Night Owl now add the singles and Pairs Knock out to their Team knock out and League win. However , the “Grand Slam” of winning all 5 competitions was stopped by Xrisanthos, Three W’s, who took the Round Robin K/O. Also, Armourada, being the only Team to beat Night Owl this Winter, must be very happy with a few of the Owl’s feathers in their caps.

AND…..Does Capt Bob know the words to the birdie song???

Last nights Armourada darts bought together Forum Fanatics Phil n Jen n John n Dot who, in turn managed a chinwag with CorfuSoon(Frank) and Nan and also got to meet ValnBill who in turn bought me an Ouzo so I could sit and bore them about the magic of darts. Wotta gent Bill is - Never yawned once.

A welome to the forum for Steve n Mary who always, in the past, read and enjoyed all our "Forum Input" about Arillas. Now I think they may be having some input of their own.

Eggy and neighbour, Makis,won the darts but that's all acedemic. More pleasure is obtained by seeing all have a good time.

Poor Liz, (Willy's Washers ) had to partner Vasillas again. This will teach her to beat me last Winter! - She has a partner for life now!!

Since Friday I have been saying many sad goodbyes to many good familes, which happen to include those dart players which mean so much to many of us "locals" here.

We've "lost" Jersey Steve and Jersey John and families and Matt n Joe who amused us with his 2 inch long novelty darts.
Tomorrow morning we lose Charlie n Dan n Ben n Jerry n Darryl n Snaypee.
(Snaypee - What was his real name? - I forget!)

All these guys, plus their very "understanding" familes are what Arillas needs to survive. "Understanding" because they probably spent more time on the dartboard instead of the sunbed!

Many thanks come,not only from me, but also, best wishes from Night Owl's Nickos, Capt Bob, my neighbour Makis, Jean, Senan, Heather, Leszek and Armourada's Leon n Vassilis.
Plus, of course the Rainbow Crowd of Dimi,Spiros,Yiannis,Panniotis,Alexandra.

Take a bow, you lot, at the people who have enjoyed your company!
I reckon all those "young uns" of yours will be playing next year.
And if they don't we can always find something for them to do -
 (OR NOT TO DO - After all it's their holiday choice as well)

Our local "Darting Fraternity" has said goodbye, today, to many new found pals who, once again have gone from holidaymakers to friends.

We've "lost" the likes of such a nice crowd from Tria Adelphia, such as Roy and Eric etc etc etc.

We've lost the Scottish appeal of Mo n David from Rainbow.
Those lil 'ole buggers - I'll C U JIMMEE.
and.... Wottanice pair - (Or double) were Louise n Mark'
(someone told me thay have played before?)

Sharpen yer darts to play these peeps, people.
Super darts plus very good company makes all us of here feel bad when we have to say goodbye.

Will those "Golden Girls" show their Grit/Glit when they play 3 times League Winners Night Owl?

Will "Three W's" clip the wings of those Lady Owls (Owlettes ) and send a message to Captain Bob's Birdie men that "We are on yer tail" ?

Will the Sunset show those wise campaigners "Armourada" that the sun never sinks like a lead ballooon? Will Amourada say "Been there - Done that!"

All this will be revealed , next Wednesday/Thursday in the first clash of the N.T.S. League.

"Vasillis gives Armourada Ladies the Midas Touch"

Three times League winners "Night Owl" looked set for an 11-0 victory in thier first match of the 2012 Winter League but, then, along came "King Midas" &"Queen Liz" who beat the Owls Spiros n Paul 2-0. Thier 2 winning games were probably worth more than gold!?
However those Night Owls, not to be undone, unleashed a sea of doubles and came out the 10-1 winners.
(Not even King Canute could have halted that ocean!)
Makis (Owl) set the target for the fastest 301 with a 10 darter.

Meanwhile the Sunset did not set on the Sunset Bar but on Armourada "A" who, at 5-2 up, looked all set for a comfortable win, But back came the Sunset and at 5-5 it was the last game pairs duo of "Armours" Anne n Roger who beat "Sunsets" Doug n Alan to take the match 6-5 (13-13 on legs)

Three W's opened thier account with an 8-3 win over Owlettes but those lady Owls gave as good as they got and certainly shaved a "W" of the Team Name.
A lucky Three W's Team hang on to the tail feathers of Night Owl who now lead the league by 2 points. Long way to go though! Watch this space.

Post by: Eggy on November 14, 2011, 06:31:22 PM
I really hope someone is reading all this as I could be practising treble 20's.

Tomorrow sees Night Owl take on the ladies and will most certainly be looking for an 11-0. But those ladies will be looking, not for a win, but for at least 3 games.

Sunset Bar will be at at Three W's and will be after a win, as will Three W's who will be after a 8-3, home win, to stay on track with Night Owls.

Armourada "A" will be playing those "Golden Girls/Vasillis" and could move into second league spot, behind the Owls.
But , just maybe that Gold will bribe a few games away from Armourada "A"

My forecast for tomorrows matches?

Three W's 7 - Sunset 4
Night Owl 10 - Owlettes 1
Armourada 9 - Golden Girls 2

(170 out - Negg - Nah! - A nice dream though!)

Ring your local bookies folks and get good prices for these results!!!!

"Nickos & Makis finally knocked off perch"

Last Winter's Pairs Champions with, 13 from 13 wins, were humbled by Owlettes, Sally & Dawn losing 2-0, with Dawn ending thier misery shooting a 2 dart 61 out. However the Owls bounced back with yet another 10-1 result.

Three W's recorded a fine, but unexpected 8-3 result over Sunset Bar whilst Armourada keep the pressure on Night Owl with an 11-0 win over the "Golden Girls. (22-5 on legs)

Early days yet but equal top of the 100+ scores are Owls, Dimitris & Nickos with Anne (Armourada) sitting just behind. She, together with team mate Jean, hold 100% records in the singles and pairs and Jean has the highest ladies average with 86%
The leader board reads:
Night Owl 20 , Armourada 17, Three W's 16, Sunset Bar 8, Owlettes 4, with the Golden Girls yet to make a move on 1. Plenty of time to go.

And..... If you think darts is boring then take a look at the following pics. Cheers Negg

But what does a half naked woman on a table (not to mention a half-naked Nickos!) have to do with darts? I assume you kept you gear on Negg?

It certainly all happens at the Night Owl!

What a fabulous night. I so wish we could've been there.
Captain Bob seems to be enjoying the belly to belly dance. [Bob, did you manage to get a good photo this time ;) ] & Woohoo, look at Nikos. Was he getting a bit hot under the collar? Haha.
She's a fantastic dancer - saw her performing at a party last month.

Almost forgot about the score ... hard luck Owlettes. Better luck next time.
BTW Night Owls, you all look very smart in your new black polo shirts.

Thanks Sara - "Poached" your suggestion for a "Heading" there.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Night Owl boys meet Three W's, on Tuesday which could turn the league points upside down. 6 Owls still hold 100% records in the singles & 8 combinations of pairs. Three W's have 3 players still with 100% records in the singles and 4 pairs combinations still unbeaten. Should be a cracker of a game and belly dancers are, of course, invited.
The above match may benefit Armourada who are home to Owlettes and will be hoping for, at least, 9 points against this improving ladies team
Armourada could be top of the league by Wednesday!!???

"Owls lay eggs on Three W's"

At 5-4 up it was a no "yolking" matter for Three W's when Negg faced the might of the Owls Makis to win the match. But at 1-1, and an Eggy error of two crucial missed darts at double 18, "Neighbour Makis" had the opportunity to level at 5-5, at which he duly obliged. The last match decider was a nervy affair but went the way of the Owls who ran out 6-5 winners and retain their record of being unbeaten, at home for three Winters.
A very tight match though with a 17-14 result on legs.
Newcomer, Spiros, son of Owls Nickos is now the only Owl to retain his 100% record in singles and pairs.

Meanwhile......... Sunset Bar produced a maximum 11-0 victory at the expense of the "Armourada Goldies" This puts Sunset only 7 points behind the Owl with only 3 league matches being played.

The world will watch, with baited breath, tonights Armourada A's clash with Owlettes as, should the Armour team win 10-1 this will put them at the top of the league table.

"Owlettes Claws fail to scratch Heavy Amour"

With a very hard fought 10-1 result, over Owlettes, Amourada now move into top spot of the NTS Winter League. But with a 21-6 win, on legs, reflects how well these lady Owls are playing and they should not be dismissed lightly.

Armours Senan now ties on the "Merits Board" with Owls Dimitris............... and Armours Jean, despite losing 2-1 to Owlettes Lynda, still sits on top of the ladies table with a 75% strike rate.

Next week will see the Sunset hoping for a good result to move closer to the leaders. Armourada have yet to face the "Mighty Nighty's" and, with, Three W's hoping for maximum points against that Golden Team, who, when bottom can only go one way, it will be interesting indeed.

Current points stand at:-

Armourada - 27
Night Owl   - 26
Three W's   - 21
Sunset       - 19
Owlettes    -   5
Golden Girls - 1

"Sunset tooo bright for Owlettes"

Sunset's Bar 11-0 over Owlettes now closes the top of the league and makes life very interesting indeed, in The NTS Darts League.
Three W's, who beat Armours' Goldies 10-1 move into top spot, with Sunset only 1 point behind.
(Three W's may live to regret that they only beat Owlettes 8-3!!)
But.... Armourada and Night Owl have yet to play, with a game in hand.
A 6-5 result, either way, may not be enough.
Current Points.
Three W's - 31
Sunset     - 30
Armourada -27
Night Owl   - 26
Owlettes     - 5
Golden Girls - 2

"Owls wing way back to top of tree"

Sunset Bar, last night, met a very in form Night Owl team whose 10-1 win, included 15 merit scores and 180's for Capt Bob and Dimitris.
Dave n Stammatis saved the brush for Sunset with a fine 2-0 win over Makis n Dimitris but Sunset ran out 20-6 losers on legs.

Points Totals
Night Owl - 36   ( 4 games played )
Three W's - 31   ( 4 games played)
Sunset Bar - 31 ( 5 games played )
Armourada - 27 ( 3 games played )
Owlettes - 5
Golden Girls - 2

Armourada have yet to play the Owl. They will surely be sharpening beaks and bringing a chainsaw, when they meet, to whittle down that high branch, that the Owls now currently own.

" Lettes hear it for Lady Owls "

The bottom of the table tussle between Owlettes and Armourada "Goldies" was probably the best and longest match in this Winters League.
2-1 then 2-2 then 4-2 then 4-4 then 5-5!
The final result went down to the deciding leg in the final pairs game, which saw Owlettes Sally n Ann finally clinch that elusive double.
6-5 to Owlettes and a 16-13 win on legs.

And...... Who says local darts is not fun?????

(http://i924.photobucket.com/albums/ad84/neillegg/P1010270.jpg)

No Team in the top of the table must take these 2 teams for granted as they can snatch valuable points which could be regretted in the future. They both continue to improve.
Equally, the league would be very boring and sad without their input.

" They thought it was all over............"

When Armourada took a healthy 5-2 lead, against Sunset, in this weeks NTS Darts they may have been counting some bonus points to get closer to League Leaders , Night Owl. But, 2 singles wins by Sunset's Capt Alan and Stammatis then followed by the pairs win, in the 5-5 decider, and Sunset ran out 6-5 winners on the night. (15-14 on legs. - A very close game!)

Night Owl firmly superglue their Talons to that top branch in the tree with an 11-0 win over "Goldies", but an 81 out, in 2 darts, by Marcia must have ruffled the feathers a little.
Not to be out done Owls Nickos went out on 126 (t19,19, Bull)

Improving Owlettes proved that they should not be taken for granted and battled back against a 7-1 scoreline to deny Three W's the bonus points they desperately needed to keep up with the Owl. Good pairs wins by Lynda & Dawn
and Lynda & Sally and a fine 2-0 singles by Ann made it an 8-3 win to "W's

Pictures to follow - Cheers Negg

"Buckle belts bull for 4 from 4"

Armourada's Roger Buckle kept his 100% singles record with an average of 63.5, per throw, in last nights NTS Darts league, including a bull finish.
He now moves up the unbeaten table and gets closer to the elite minority who have yet to lose a singles game.

Xrisanthos (3 W's) leads the way with 7 from 7, followed by Makis (Owl) 6/6 and Spiros (Owl/Rainbow) 5/5 , with young Owl Spiros also on 4 from 4.
(A very exclusive membership indeed!)

Three W's match result of 9-2 against Armourada closes the gap to Night Owl but they are still 10 points adrift. Next weeks meeting of the "Top 2" will be interesting.

Capt Bob (Owl) is the first semi-finalist player through to the "Arilliacs Super Singles" K/O with the 2nd semi drawn for the end of January.

This will help things turn out for the best.

" Owls evict Three W squatters from nest "

Three W's thought the only way was up when they quickly went into a 2-1 lead against Night Owl, helped on the way with a 111 out by Doug, in last Nights match. But it was then down to earth with a big bump when they then lost the next 8 games with 5 of those going to a deciding leg. Chances were had and doubles missed and 100% records were lost by Xrisanthos in the singles and Xris and Negg in the pairs. Owl's Makis tops the unbeaten singles record now with 7 from 7. Leg result Owls 20 - Three W's 9.
A 9-2 match win for the Owls gives them a 17 point lead at the top of the table.

" Marcia saves brush for Armour Goldies "

At 9-1 down, in games, it was up to Marcia to stop the rot. Fresh from her Saturday Roda 501 success she duly did the business with a 2-1 win. But the Sunset pairs duo of Capt Alan and lil Doug bounced back in the last game.
10-1 win to Sunset. But 21 legs to 10 shows that these Goldies are still not to be taken for granted.

It can't be that bad Negg - Dominoes is never an option!

I've seen serious confrontation at a dominoes match. Dominoes players are a breed not to be messed with.

Trebles for show and doubles for dough. Sounds as though it was closer than it looks from the result. Can it be said that the result was not a true reflection of the Three W's performance?

Dunna fret laddie... even Phil "THE POWER" Taylor has a "brown out" occasionally.

" Full Metal Jacket for Armourada "

Armourada's 10-1 win over Owlettes , last night, means they are now chasing 2nd spot with Three W's and are a point closer to the Owl leaders.
Linda , Owlettes, saved a Team brush with a 2-1 win and now finds herself currently qualifying for the Round Robin, ( Long way to go yet though )
Armours Jean still heads the ladies table with a 53% average and sits very comfortably in the league, as a group, with 8 singles games from 15 won.
( A better average than some of us men out there! )
Armour's Roger now makes it 5 from 5 in the singles. Only 4 players still in the running for this. Owls Makis 7-7, Rainbow Spiros 6-6, Roger 5-5 and young Owl spiros 4-4.

"It just gets better 'n better"

Owl/Rainbow Dimitris notched a 43 per dart average, last night, and his 2nd 180, with a 7 dart 301. No one can take that away but his Armourada opponent, Capt Senan, did take the other 2 legs running out the 2-1 winner.
Armour's Roger followed up with a 2-0 win over Owls' Paul which took his unbeaten singles record to 6 from 6.

But those pesky Owls bounced back and took the next 5 games.
Final Result Owls 9 - Armourada 2.

The unbeaten singles elite group now consist of:-
Makis 7-7 , Spiros Rainbow 7-7, Roger 6-6, Spiros Owl 5-5.
If this continues then, maybe a sudden death playoff??
(There can be only one!)

Goldies Marcia continues her recent form run with a 100 out against Three W's but could not save the final outcome of W's 10 - Goldies 1.
Three W's Doug was top darter of the night with 100,120,125,140,140.

Sunset Bar, tonight, will be looking for at least a 10-1 from Owlettes to join Armourada in 3rd spot and maintain their challenge for 2nd.

Meanwhile, Night Owl are flying high in the sky with a massive 16 point lead over 2nd placed Three W's.

" Sunset eclipsed by Night Owl "

Until last night Sunset Bar were the only team to have notched 3 x 11-0 wins in the NTS Darts League. Last night they were on the receiving end when Night Owl returned the compliment. The little bit of luck, that Teams &Players sometimes need, deserted the Sunset and although the first 4 games went to the deciding leg all other games ended 2-0 in the Owls favour.

Three W's continue to keep that little bit of luck and scraped through to a 7-4 win over Armourada. 16-14 on legs reflects a very hard fought match.

Night Owl, with a 20 point lead over W's, and with only 5 games remaining look to have their feet firmly nailed to the top branch of the league tree.

Night Owl are clearly so talented. We are still discussing the lovely, delicious meal we had there in July 2011, and that was another bulls-eye of a non-darts variety.

We both love following the progress of the league, even if some of the scoring technicalities pass by on the other side of the voddie-frappe.

Team players will be on hand for autographs and signed photos. Capt Bob is learning how to be nice to small children and kissing babies.
(http://i924.photobucket.com/albums/ad84/neillegg/owl.jpg)

World dictionaries may now be changed for the desciption of "OWL"
They may soon read..............-:
 "Night predator of small rodents and other Dart Teams"
With a 20 point lead only an invasion from Mars will stop them winning for the 4th time. Last winter they finished with 140 points and need 34 points from their last 4 games to beat that total.
Meanwhile... Armourada's 9-2 win over Goldies keeps a little pressure on 2nd placed Three W's who beat Sunset Bar 8-3. A consolation for Sunset was Doug finishing with a bull, to beat Xrisanthos and Alan n Willy ending the unbeaten pairs record of Xris n Mikalis.
Three W's will need a good result, from next weeks match against the Owl, to hold on to second spot.

“10 W’s 4 3 W’s!”
When Three W’s Were at 2-2 in Tuesdays match against Night Owl it was Woe for Darren losing his unbeaten singles record thanks to good finishing by Owl’s Spiros.
 “What happened to our doubles after?”  Puzzled a Worried Three W’s
At  5-1 down it was a Wonder that Negg held Owl’s Nickos to a 2-1 Win.
At 7-3 down the W’s pair of Mikalis and Xrisanthos Welcomed a 2-1 victory over Spiros (Owl ) and Paul.
Final result – Owl 7 – Three W’s 4.
Now…… Three W’s have to Wait for next Winter for their revenge,

Meanwhile…. Armourada close the gap on 2nd spot,Three W’s, with a 10-1 win over Owlettes and Sunset Bar stay in 4th despite a good 9-2 win over “Goldies”.

With 3 matches left the runners up spot is still open.

Night Owl – Won 12 – 114 points
Three W’s – Won 9  - 88 points
Armourada – Won 7 – 82 points
Sunset Bar – Won 6 – 72 points
Owlettes – Won 2 – 22 points

“TER-WIT, TER-WOO, - NOW ONLY TWO”

Night Owl’s Tuesday win, over Armourada, came at a price. Veterans Armour proved they are still a Team to fear, with Leon, “Over the Rainbow”, ending Spiros’s 100% singles record of 11 from 11.
Never mind Spiros, even Phil Taylor loses sometimes!!
Two other 100% Owl pairs records were broken with Jean n Gordon doing the business on Dimitris n Paul, and then Jean n Roger beating Paul n Nickos. Final match result 7-4 (15-9 on legs)

Only two players now hold unbeaten singles and they are both Night Owls. Makis is top with 12 from 12 and Spiros (Son of Owl) holds 5 from 5.
Joint top, with the best unbeaten pairs records are Owl’s young Spiros n Makis, and W’s Doug n Mikalis, both on 5 from 5.

Meanwhile, Three W’s 10-1 win over Goldies makes them favourite for League runners up. However should they crumble under pressure, next week, against 3rd placed Armourada it will be an interesting final two fixtures.

Owlettes begin to get their act together and took 3 games and 7 legs from Sunset who won the night with an 8-3 and still sit very comfortably in 4th spot. They could snatch 3rd depending on the W’s & Armourada match next week.

Points Total
Night Owl 121 , Three W’s 98 , Armourada 86 , Sunset 80 , Owlettes 25 , Golden Girls 19.

       “Owlettes learning to fly!”
Twas only a bronze for Armour Goldies when they lost to an improving Owlettes by 9-2 (19-8 on legs ) Goldies Liz, however, now moves into the Round Robin line up thanks to her and Dot winning their doubles game.

Night Owl’s Capt Bob also joins the Robin courtesy of Sunset’s Stammatis who beat Owl’s Spiros which drops Spiros, maybe temporarily, from the line up. Final Match result 9-2 to the Night Owl.

Three W’s Negg, also losing a pairs game, drops from the Robin, giving way to Mikalis, currently by 1 point. Match result – Three W’s 8 , Armourada 3.
Next week’s last league games will produce the Round Robin finalists.

Current line up is:-
Group A. Spiros Jnr (Owl) Mikalis (W’s) Gordon (Armourada) Dawn (Owlettes)
Group B. Bob (Owl) Roger (Armourada) Willy (Sunset) Marcia (Goldies)
Group C. Xrisanthos (W’s) Alan (Sunset) Sally (Owlettes) Liz (Goldies)
Current 3rd Spot Team placing.
Owl – Spiros (Rainbow) Ann (Owlettes) Vasillis (Goldies)
Negg (W’s) Stammatis (Sunset) Senan (Armourada)

Meanwhile….. Is it an unlucky 13 for Owl’s Makis who remains unbeaten in his singles. Will he play next week and try to make it number 14??. And, will he and young Spiros try for a 7 from 7 unbeaten pairs? Pressure or what??

Another “Mean While” and just to add a tad more pressure to Makis is…
That 3 Owls are now though to the last 4 of the “Arilliac Super Singles”.
Dinitris, Rainbow, is now there and makes 3 of the last 4. The last final quarter group now includes Makis. - Will he respond???
– Will he rise to the challenge and make it 4 “Wise Owls” instead of 3??

It’s all so exciting and, as Senan Walsh will say, “I’m losing the will to live!!!”

"WOTSITALLABOUT?"

The final Winter League matches have been played and Armourada's game against Sunset must be one of the best matches this season. The win went Armours way, 7-4, but Sunset must be pleased with the 16-13 leg scoreline.

Armour's Leon excelled with 5 scores of 100+. Another hitter of merits was Mikalis, Three W's, who hit 6 merits which included 2 x 140's, the 3rd dart, each time just missing for that magic 180.

Owl/Rainbow Dimitris finishes top of the merits with 50 hits of 100+, including 2 maximums.

Night Owl win the league, for the 4th Winter with a points total of 141, which beats their last Winters tally by one point and Owl Makis keeps his unbeaten singles record with 14 from 14. Young Owl, Spiros finishes top of the league table with an overall 96%
 
Amour's Jean finishes top of the Ladies table with 44 points, winning 10 of her singles games and a healthy 63% share of the doubles. Golden Girl, Marcia must be pleased with her final points total of 36 which qualifies her for the Round Robin event.

Watch this space for further news on the Knock Outs.
(I bet you're all on the edge of your seats and can't wait!!)

                         “New league player after Night Owl’s eggs”

Three W’s new signing, Mikalis, improves week by week and, last night, his reward was to fill the last semi final place for the “Arilliacs Super Singles K/O”
This new event, sponsored by members of this Forum has produced many fine games and the lineup for the semi finals is as follows:-
(League averages & Team Percentages reflect the high standard of games)

Quarter Final Results

                Dimitris, Night Owl (84% - 13 from 15 singles won)
                     Beat
            Xrisanthos, Three W’s (79% - 15 from 17 singles won)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      Capt. Bob, Night Owl (90% - 13 from 14 singles won)
                     Beat
      Lezsek, Three W’s (63% - 7 from 10 singles won)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      Mikalis, Three W’s (78% - 13 from 17 singles won)
                     Beat
      Spiros, Night Owl (96% - 6 from 6 singles won)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      Nickos, Night Owl (88% - 16 from 18 singles won)
                     Beat
      Willy, Sunset Bar (54% - 9 from 19 singles won)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                             Draw for the semi finals are :-   
 1st Semi Final - Capt Bob vs Mikalis. 2nd Semi Final - Dimitris vs Nickos

Each group was a hard fought affair for all, with Dimitris playing a “never give up” Xrisanthos, with Capt Bob clinging to a deciding 3rd leg with “3W’s” Lezsek. Mikalis had to overcome 14 from 14 singles winner, Makis and then 6 from 6 singles winner, Spiros (Owl) in a very nervy quarter final
Nickos had to hold on to form against NTS veteran Willy.

None of this would be happening without the sponsorship from you Arilliacs so we are all winners.

And ……
With 55 singles wins,this Winter, shared between the last 4 players, it should be a good finals night.
(Just a sneak preview of the trophies they will be fighting for.

" The recipe for a good darts match"

First, take 3 well seasoned Owls.
Add to these , but very slowly:- some Three W spices.
First, gently add a hard boiled EGG.
(This may "BOB" up and down in the pan and the Owls should then be allowed to simmer)
Add further spices when the Owls are cooking nicely and the flesh seems to be falling from the bones.
But - Do not add too quickly as the Owls will boil over and react to the Three W
further introduction of spices. This will then be a battle of tastes and if this  happens the Owls will dominate the dish and the taste of any spices will
will be very soon forgottten.

Or..... I could say the final result in the Team K/O  was:-
Night Owl 4
Three W's 3
(W's were 3-1 ahead - Wot went wrong?)

Last one's easy Negg - Night Owl....but I would never guess the dartboards. Aren't they all the same?
Title: Re: For darts lovers only - Others may be bored to tears.
Post by: Eggy on April 02, 2012, 07:19:55 PM
OK! - Who's given up on the dartboard quiz.
(There's a coupla interesting ones there who also do good Summer eats!)

" Owls fail to to catch elusive Robin again "

Night Owl's chance of another "Grand Slam" of titles escaped them yet again in the "Round Robin K/O"

Played in 3 groups, the Owls were represented by young Spiros and Rainbow Spiros who won through to the group final and then faced Three W's,group winner, Capt. Xrisnathos. Spiros Owl, looked the stronger of the Owls with a 2 leg to zero win over Spiros (Rainbow) only to lose 2-0 to Xrisanthos.
Needing only 1 leg to secure victory, Xris then beat Rainbow Spiros 2-0 to retain the title he won last year.

Final results.
Group 1-Spiros(Owl) 6.- Mikalis(W's) 4.-Willy(Sunset) 2- Dawn(Owlettes) - 2
Group 2-Spiros(Rain) 6- Leon(Armour) 4 -Marcia (Goldies) 2 - Alan (Sunset) 1
Group 3-Xris (W's) - 6 - Gordon(Armour) 4 - Liz (Goldies) 3 - Sally(Owlettes) 1

Final Group
Spiros(Owl) beat Spiros (Rainbow)2-0
Xrisanthos(W's) beat Spiros (Owl) 2-0
Xrisanthos (W's) beat Spiros (Rainbow) 2-0

Cheers

" Birds of a feather.............. "
.......not only flock together but when you are talking Owl's it should read play together. The semi's of the super singles saw Mikalis take the deciding leg against Owls's Capt Bob. "Capt" had earlier levelled the match with a fine 15 darter. The other semi saw two Owls, with sharpened beaks at the ready. The result was in Nickos's favour with a 2-1 over Dimitris (Rainbow), helped on the way with a 20,20, bull finish.

The best of 5 leg final saw Nickos go 2-0 up and then a "fightback" 68 out by W's Mikalis for a 2-1 scoreline only added that twinge of pressure that "veteran" Nickos handles so well. Final result 3-1 to the Nickos Owl.

Other final results to follow.

"Not shaken,not stirred but mixed makes an enjoyable evening - and not a 007 finish in sight"

The mixed pairs K/O gave us 12 good pairs and some early evening shocks with W's Mikalis/Belinda and Owls Makis/Linda exiting in their first round games. Capt Bob/Penny were soon to follow.
In the semi finals, Owls Nickos and Owlettes Pam just overcame the duo of Alan n Brenda. The other semi saw Spiros (Owl) and Owlettes Dawn take out the Armourada duo of Gordon n Maggie.
Twas an all Owl final which went to the deciding 5th leg. With 91 left on the board Spiros took the single 17 and then gambled for a x17 , x20 only just missing. Nickos took advantage and final result 3-2 to Nickos n Pam.

Forgot to say that the "Double 18" cake was made by one of our sponsors.
"Dawns Delights" - She's a qualified chef and can make these to order.
(You tell her your idea and she does the bizz)
Many here now , during the Summer, use her "Meal to Order" delivery service.

Many other sponsors to thank.
Coconut Bar , Sharons Pool Bar, Rainbow Bar, Night Owl, Yiotas Shop
Darryl , the English butcher, Perithia. Corfu Estate Agents, Acharavi
Chinatown Restaurant, Sidari, Red Dragon Darts,
Villa Linakis, Villa Theia, Helios Court.
Not forgetting Brouklis and the Arillas Forum "Arilliacs"

Meanwhile........... Three W trophies are building up.

The biggest thank you has to go to Chris Jenkins alias "Gringo"

He and wife Ang are good pals of Rainbow and spent time there, last Summer. Many of us enjoyed a game, or two with him. A Welsh county player and hard man to beat. On their return to Wales Chris sent/donated to us many trophies for the League, all at his own expense.
(Most of these have now become perpetual, to be fought for each year)
I think he will recognise his awards when I do the Owl pic. We look forward to him and Ang returning this Summer.

" New kids on the block!!!!! "

Petros and brother Spiros, sons of Owl Nickos and Owlettes Linda are showing they will be a force to be reckoned with, next Winter, in the NTS Darts League.
(http://i924.photobucket.com/albums/ad84/neillegg/owl2.jpg)
Petros, seen above, entered his first "Open Singles" K/O at Sunset Bar,Agios Stephanos, and won through the first two rounds taking the scalps of seasoned league players, Pavlos and Roger from Armourada.

He then met brother Spiros, in the semi final........................
(http://i924.photobucket.com/albums/ad84/neillegg/owl1.jpg)
Having won 20 from 21 pairs games and 6 from 6 singles games, brother Spiros had a very successful Winter campaign behind him and this experience took him through to the final.
(Maybe a good thing for Petros as he did have school in the morning!)

Spiros then met Owl, Makis, in the final.
With a 14 from 14 singles in the Winter, and current holder of the NTS singles knock out, it would have taken a bulldozer to stop Makis. - Another title for Makis and the Night Owl.
And...... A few more trophies on the shelf.

There was a rumour that, Nickos,Night Owl is so proud of all his Team's awards that he does not want to be parted from them

I now know this is true!!!

(http://i924.photobucket.com/albums/ad84/neillegg/nickos3.jpg)

But, don't worry folks!. Linda made sure he wasn't left on the shelf when she married him and very soon, as Summer approaches, he'll be flying around that kitchen of his.

Hope you and Barry are well.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Over the last 5 years here I have been beaten by:-
People in Bermuda shorts. One in Union Jack shorts. Some one in flip flops.
A 93 year old man. ( Thanks Eric!) A non lady dart player who asked how she could hit the 50 she had left. (Red bit in the middle, says I - Bugger!)
Young Paniotti, Rainbow, with a 105 out! - Eh?
I was nearly beaten by an old lady on a zimmer frame and have lost to someone on crutches.
I can go on n on. But this afternoon...............
...........I thought I would lose to Leon, Armourada, with his right shoe hanging off. His sole having "argued" with his trainer. Leon faced the board his trainer sole faced directly the opposite. You all know that when a sole comes away from a trainer the whole shoe seems to talk to you. That sole was a flapping tongue saying. "Yer gonna lose mate!" Panic set in. I have never lost to a guy with one and a half "talking shoes" before! No problem for a focused Egg though and pressure was over and a result in my favour.
Then, I played his good lady wife, Verena.
(Only the second time she has played darts)
I miss 40 and she finishes on a clinical 47.-  2 darts 7 and double 20.
Maybe I have found my mixed pairs partner for next Winter. Whatever that outcome, it is yet another "bizarre" result in the history of the dart playing Egg. - Cheers.

Hello everyone, enjoying my holiday in Arillas, just found out that Eggy hasn't lost only, to from who he says is Elizabeth Queen of Amourada who showed Neill where double 3 is, Vasillas King of Amourada made Neill asking for an Ouzo after beating him, Alexandra (Spiro rainbows daughter) who gave darts lessons to Eggy, no mention about Night Owl team, the Rainbow brothers, Captain Bob, Makis, Nickos and Nickos son Spiros, little Petros, showed Neill he isn;t little anymore at Night Owl. Rumours say that even Snoopy, Nick and Linda's dog has beaten Eggy finishing with a bull. Ha ha ha, thats still under investigation, more to come.
p.s. Panagiotis, Jimmy's son has had a few excellent wins on him also.

For all you Arillas (Darts) addicts out there.

A list of things to do which you may find interesting.

14th June is a darts K/O at Sunset Bar in Agios Stephanos.

20th June is a darts and pool night at Rainbow Bar (Bit o fun is planned)

22nd June is a darts night at Armourada (You know where this is!)

27th June will be a darts night at Tria Adelphia, (You all know Tria)

If you want to get away from pointy things then try Three W's every Sunday as they have live music. Darren May strutting his stuff.

Good places to be whether you throw an arrow or not. It will give you all a chance to spend some time with us locals who put a great value on, you telling us, what's going on back in the UK. Bend our ears for change.

Cheers

Just like Xrisanthos n Marguerita ,at Three W's, this is a large committment to the sport by Spiros at Sunset. They are both worth a visit, if not for the super lunchtime snacks at Three W's but an evening special at Sunset.
And of course.......a few games of darts.

More pics to follow.

I don't think Wegg would like the idea of Calum and I out gallivanting every day with darts in hand.
And.... when we come back, there is always that practice board at Home.
(She's packing a suitcase as I type - A long way to go for jelly beans!)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A super gesture, by Kevin, so we now have to get together and devise a new Winter competition.

Momo - Maybe positive thinking linked with a very lucky draw.
And...... my neighbour Makis couldn't be there!!!

Tomorrow night I am trying my hand at Pool,in the Rainbow K/O, as well.

Brilliant Neill, canny wait!  We entered a local charity tournament on Sunday just to make up numbers and get a bit of practice for Arillas. OMG. We were crap! Almost got to doubles on the first game...101 left, with the guys we were playing needing over 100. Des says to Kenny...Treble something, single whatever and double top.  He got the lot! Before the start I told them we'd just been playin a short while and were not good. Dave then threw a 91 then me a 92!  Wotsthatallabout! We soon got back to 20s and 30s. Out in the first round. It was alot of fun though. thanks for organizing the Tuesday night. So excited to see Capn Bob and Makis and you again, and to meet the other Arilliacs. see you Tuesday. Lol, Mo and dave. xx

Plaque is looking good , Kevin.
Did you get my last e-mail?

Tonight at Rainbow looks a biggie! - Maybe 16/18 players.

Tomorrow night is at Armourada.

Next Wednesday is the last K/O to be held at Tria Adelphia.

All the above should be very good ones and gets many Arilliacs, plus locals together. Tis not only darts - DONCHERKNOW?

Then I retire for the summer season, exhausted at organising and pulling names from hats.

Then, as our Winter league draws near I just may have to look for a sponsor of the Arilliac Super Singles. Look out, Forum pals! - I just may have to ask for 2e each from , at least, 15 of you.

Truth is "Truth"

All these weekly darts K/O's are keeping me busy plus I do fit in a tad of work , in between.

It's not all about "Darts Nights" though. It's giving forum pals a chance to meet up and put faces to names plus us locals here get to hear news from the UK.
And... at a different venue each week, maybe introduces some to places they have never visited.

Steve n Mary and Mo n David and Jinksy n Ang plus those 'ole "Jersey Boys" Steve/John/Jacko have all supported the last ones and I am sure they will be at the next, which is.........
..........This Wednesday is at Tria Adelphia.

So, to anyone arriving on Monday, or currently here, then pop in and say hello to us all. - ( Hoping Bev n "Silver Fox", Kev turn up for this one
(By 8:30pm though , If you want to play)

A REQUEST FOR ALL YOU FOLLOWERS OF OUR WINTER DARTS LEAGUE.
As you keen Arilliacs know........
Last year, Kevin G organised an Arillas Forum collection which, with the help of the Arillas Council, put the bench on the end of the jetty. It was agreed, with all who gave money, that our local darts league would use some of this cash for a new competition. -
"THE ARILLIAC SUPER SINGLES" -Done & enjoyed by all!!

I want to keep this as a yearly competition but need the assistance of you darters out there. To keep this K/O alive we would need around 26e,to buy extra awards and this is something the league cannot afford as we have lost two of our major sponsors.

I will not ask Brouklis as he keeps the w e b c a m running out of his own pocket and does a lot for everyone. Kevin G ,also, has sponsored a new event this year, "The Arillas Bench K/O".
So.... I need maybe 12 people to pledge 2e each for the Arilliac super singles. - Any takers?? - It just involves putting £2 in an envelope and sending it to Eileen, Villa Linakis (She doesn't know that yet)

I can give, with Eileens permission, her Scottish address to any of you who would like to contribute.

Winter darts is building here and now. I think, at least half of the players are Greek. You will still get weekly updates from me during the Winter.
(Find a favourite and cheer them on)
Thanks peeps

Hi Neill, glad all is moving forward smoothly for you and the league, I would
Like to donate some cash towards your dart league, but think sending a couple of euros in an envelope would be a tad risky, how about I send a cheque to you made out to you and then perhaps you could draw the money out when its cleared, let me know, regards, jinksy

Thanks Sandy - You are truly in the group of a "Non Dart Player Supporter"

Jinksy - (Chris n Ang) - Your trophy contributions, to the league, last Winter considerably helped the league to start "Standing on own feet". If you send your donation to Eileen she will turn this into euros and send to the league.
Cheque payable to her.I trust her not only with my life but,more importantly, would let her throw my darts!!! - That is trust indeed!!!!!!!!!!!!
 ( Help -  Eileen! where's the best place to find your address? )

StevenMary - Perhas Eileen will PM y'all with her postal address??

Eileen - Poor you! - Never got the chance to ask if this was OK?

By the way folks, Villa Linakis and Villa Theia have been sponsors of the league since time began.- They both have their own K/O's.
Villa Linakis have the Team K/O and Villa Theia have the Round Robin.
(Night Owl currently own the Team K/O and Three W's have the Round Robin)
Maybe this will change in 2013?

So, for convenience , I hope , all donations to Eileen.

Cheers All

For once, I do not know what to say!!

Thanks, so far, to Ron & Sue , Val & Bill, Mary & Steve for their donations/input to our local darts league.

These are generous donations and, I am sure linked with the other pledges we have will ensure the "Arilliac K/O" is not only safe for this Winter but will be secure for the next.

YOU GUYS!!!!!!!

The darts league has become a major feature of our favourite part of Corfu, in no little part to the credit of our Eggy. Whether you play or not, it is a wonderful focal point where you can meet so many people, both tourist and local. Through our forum and the darts, Eggy has brought many people together without even realising it. Like we have in Parliament, he is the "father of the house."

Thanks DAD.

Just to let all you darting enthuiasts out there know.

This Winter I have reisgned the post of League Secretary and my neighbour, Makis, has been voted in to keep up the good work.

Good for a Greek Darts League to have a Greek secretary and, I think 4 years of me is enough for all. Fresh blood with fresh ideas are needed and I can now relax this Winter and enjoy the game.

There are 8 teams this Winter and I will still be posting updates so still watch this space folks.

The Arilliac "Super Singles" K/O is safe for this and next Winter thanks to some super donations from you guys.

All our K/O's this Winter have been very well supported with:-

The Round Robin - Villa Theia
The 301 singles - Chinatown , Sidari
The Team K/O - Villa Linakis
The Pairs K/O - Rainbow - Anemos
The Mixed Pairs K/O - Compliments of JINKSY

Night Owl have this Winter looked after not only 180 awards but are sponsoring the League Runner up awards.

Dawn , wife of Makis, looks after the best league player this Winter.
(Hmmmm! - Should I re-type that??)

And Phil n Jen will supply the awards for the best 501 pairs game and the best 301 singles game.

Not to be left out, I will be putting up the awards for the best pairs %.

Who said all this was boring?. Who's still awake out there?
Cheers

"Owls and Three W's on zero points????"

Well, I suppose we have to make an allowance that they haven't played yet......
....... But, the first games of NTS got under way , this week.

Kokalo (Armourada) a new team entry met Bad Boys (A Three W's "newbie") and Kokalo were very lucky to come out 9-2 winners (Most games went 2-1)

Meerkats (Ex Golden Girls) Now a mixed Team took 4 points from Sunset before losing 7-4. (15-12 on legs)

Veterans Armourada met Owlettes+Petros (Young Owl) and scraped home to a 6-5 win. (14-10 on legs)

An interesting start with the two "BIG GUNS" yet to play each other!

"Meerkats only Meer Mortals........."

.........in  the presence of Night Owl who, it is said, descended from Mount Olympus 4 years ago and took the form of dart players. I'm not sure if this myth is true. It is hard to imagine Capt Bob, as Zeus, with a long grey beard and white kaftan. But, Spiros, Rainbow, could be Thor, with his voice of thunder.  -  Night Owl win 11-0.

Meanwhile, Bad Boys Bashed Baby Birds with a 9-2 win. Young Owlette, Petros, dug deep into his 2 years darting experience ( He's only 11 now!! ) to make his singles win 2 from 2.

Three W's beat Sunset 7-4 in their first match of the season whilst Kokalo beat their Armourada  counterparts 8-3.
 (11 and 12 dart 301's from Stathis and Richard)

Kokalo perch on top of the league with 17 points but Night Owl will try their best to get that perch back tonight, when these two teams meet.

A CLASH OF THE TITANS , MAYBE????

You could hear night owls screams till mount Olympas, there are not any more the 12 gods of olympas, there are the 7 gods of night owl, (they havn't found afrodite yet). King Dionysus gave them to much tripouro last night, that's their secret, their power. tsipouro power, yammas gringo

" Bad Boys get nasty "

Newcomers to the league, Bad Boys (Three W's B) showed how much they want to finish on top with a "No Prisoners" 10-1 defeat of Meerkats.
Dougie, Meerkats, saved the brush for his team by "purring" very comfortably to a 2-0 win in his singles game.

Three W's A, continue to march on with a fine 9-2 win over Armourada and Sunset worked overtime to get a 9-2 result over Petros's Owlettes.
Petros, once again, "mothered" these little chicks with his 3rd singles win from 3 played.

The clash of the Titans, between Night Owl and Kokalo looked to be all over when the Owl took the first 3 pairs games. Kokalo bounced back with the next 3 singles. After that, these mythical gods awoke the KRAKEN and the next 5 games went the way of the Owls. Kokalo were K/O'd this time but the return game just may be different. Word has it that Medusa will be signed on and the Owls darts will turn to stone!!!

Points,
Bad Boys - 21
Kokalo - 20
Sunset - 20
Night Owl - 19 ( Game in hand )
Three W's - 16 ( Game in hand )
Armourada - 11
Petros Owlettes - 9
Meerkats - 5

" SUNSET over the MOON "

Kokalo (Armourada) continue to find those winning doubles very elusive and, at 5-3 up failed to take any of the last 3 games and lost 6-5 to the better finishing of Sunset Bar.

The Three W's clash against stablemates Bad Boys also went the same way. Bad boys, at 5-3 up failed to put the icing on the cake and also lost 6-5.

Meanwhile, the Meerkats clash with Armourada "A"  finished a 7-4 win for Armourada "A". Dougie, Meerkats, has found a fountain of youth, playing for Meerkats and recorded yet another singles win. Must be mixing with these felines that does it.

Night Owl, in their usual Winter tradition, demolished Owlettes 11-0 and move top of the league, with a game in hand. Glad to see Paul back for the Owl. He was sick last week when they clashed with Kokalo. Good to see he could make it for the game against the ladies! Hope he's OK for the return against Kokalo.
(Could be a different result then!-Not 9-2, we all ask???)
Night Owl continue to remind Kokalo of last weeks result.

" A new Owl on the block "

(http://i924.photobucket.com/albums/ad84/neillegg/owl2.jpg)

Trying hard to catch leaders, Night Owl, Kokalo needed at least 10 points from their game against Owlettes. However they forgot young Petros who took 3 valuable points away from them. He's only lost 1 singles game, so far this Winter, and that was against Owl's Big Daddy, Capt Bob.

Sunset put up a fine display againsy Night Owl, this week, acheiving 14 of the 27 merit scores hit. This does not include Capt Bobs 180 as he bust his score but does include Makis's even though he went on to lose his 100% singles record against Sunset's Andy.

Three W's 9-2 win against Meerkats helped to keep the pressure on the Owl but are 6 points adrift in second. These two meet on Thursday and both Teams, I'm sure will be after at least 8 points from the 11 on offer.
Meanwhile Kokalo, now sitting in 3rd spot continue to cry into their beer and are currently drawing straws to see who lets Petros's tyres down.

           “ Armourada don’t give a hoot………… “…..

for reputations, and issued a gentle reminder to Night Owl, that they are the only team to have taken their feathers on two occasions. In 2009/10, with a different format, they won 7-6 and in 2010/11 they won 6-5. So, when being 5-0 down they dug deep into their darts cases and produced a fight back, many of us only dream of, to end the match at, a very lucky, 6-5 to the Owl.

The Three W vs Kokalo match was a crucial game for both teams, each needing at least an 8-3 result to stay in touch with those Night Owls. But, despite a 160 out from Kokalo’s Richard Gardner and a 14 dart 501 partnered with Stathis, Kokalo left Three W’s with a final match result of 6-5 down ………………….. A good win for the Owl but leaves Three W’s and Kokalo crying in their lentel soup!! – No points pulled !!

Meanwhile…… Bad Boys got a “tanning” from Sunset Bar who, like a good wine, improves week after week.  A 9-2 win for Sunset with Bull out for Gary? Liz with Jeff winning their pairs. Wotsthatallabout???..  This super Sunset result moves them up the table but, I think those “naughty lads” may just bounce back. Will they pluck those Owls, next week?  Are we all on the edge of our seats here??

So far, this Winter, there have been 261 scores of 100+ recorded. Kokalo’s Richard sits on top of the table with 24 of these, or 9% of this total. Mikalis, Three W’s, sits on his tail with 19 (7% of the total.)

The ladies singles table is also interesting with, Boneen (Kokalo) on a 50% average, Jean (Armourada) with 46% and Marcia (Meerkats) 36%. (Figures taken from singles legs played and won)

The only 100% record left for singles/Pairs combined is Nickos (Owl) winning 13 from 13.  Also with 5 wins from 5, in his singles, there may be many after his scalp to spoil this record.

A very close league table with no margin for error. -  League Table currently sits at:-
Night Owl – 43 (Game in Hand) , Sunset – 39 , Kokalo – 38 Three W’s – 37 (Game in Hand) ,
Bad Boys – 28 (Game in Hand) , Armourada – 23 (Game in Hand)
Owlettes – 12 / Meerkats – 11 – Playing each other this week.- Result to follow.

"" Hoooooo will finish 2nd?? """

Whilst Night Owl fly high in number one spot there is a battle, not only for 2nd, but also after those feathers on the return games.

Kokalo sit on 48 points, thanks to a 10-1 win over Meerkats. Dougie, Meerkats yet again took a valuable point for his Team.

Three W's did the bizz on Owlettes, 10-1, but yet again Petros saved the day for his fledglings. They sit on 47 points.

Sunset's 8-3 win over Armourada also sits them on a comfortable 47 points.

Bad Boys have a game in hand and, although losing to Night Owl, this week, are not far away with 31 points.

All the league wish all you "boring" followers out there a super Xmas break and a very healthy 2013.

Thanks Guys, for your wishes.

Our League here runs a "Round Robin" K/O , with only the top 2 players in each team, on win percentages, eligible to enter.
After the first half of the Winter, this looks to be a very difficult game.

Nickos 100 – Makis 83 – NIGHT OWL
Petros 83 – With Ann just holding 2nd – OWLETTES.
Doug 67 – and consistent Marcia a good 2nd – MEERKATS
Richard 88 – Neill 78 – KOKALO
Andy 86 – Alan 83 – SUNSET BAR
Senan 57 – Gordon 50 – ARMOURADA
Kostas Fakiolas 57 – Kostas Lefkimiatis 50 – BAD BOYS
Mikalis 92 – Xris 80 – THREE W’s

Could be a good "Robin"

The start of the return league matches commence, from tonight and we all wonder if the Xmas break has left many of us a tad "rusty".

Night Owl sit nicely on the top branch with 51 points with Kokalo on 48 and Sunset on 47. With Night Owl and Three W both having a game in hand the two matches to watch this week are:-
......Bad Boys at home to Kokalo ....&.... Sunset at home to Meerkats.
Sunset may just sneak into 2nd spot here if Kokalo fail to do the business against those Nasty Lads.

Roger and Jean, Armourada sit top of the unbeaten pairs with 4 from 4 but there are many on 3 from 3 who will try for that top spot.

       ”“Sunset and Kokalo claim ‘Squatters rights’ to the Tree House””

But for how long, as 4 time champions , Night Owl, have yet to play  pretenders to the throne, Three W’s.
Night Owl vs Three W’s games outstanding due to family commitments which always take priority over darts.
A very competitive league, this Winter. When Owls meet W’s that tree house may have two other occupants.

This Weeks results.
Armourada 7 – Petros’s Owlettes 4.
A super effort by Owlettes with Petros now winning 6 from his 7 singles games and Dawn shooting out on 84. Armourada’s Roger Buckle & Jean Walsh now take their pairs wins to 5 from 5.  They top the Pairs table.

Sunset 9 – Meerkats 2
Meerkats, Maggie, now moves into 2nd spot, of the ladies singles table, with her 2-0 win over Sunset’s Spiros whilst team mate Dougie takes his singles wins to 5 from 8. Sunset’s strength is in their singles with Andy now on 7 from 8 and Mick n Gary both on 6 from 8. 

Bad Boys 3 – Kokalo 8
New Team, “Bad Boys”, never play a bad game and Kostas Fakiolas now brings his Winter’s 100+ scores to 26.
Kokalo’s Boneen Gardner tops the Ladies table with a 58% average helped with her 2-1 win over young Dimitris of the “Boys”.  Kokalo’s Richard Gardner tops the 100+ merit table with 36. Mikalis, Three W’s sits,in third, on 21 but still has 2 games in hand.

Top 4 in the points
Sunset – 56 ,  Kokalo – 56 ,  Night Owl – 51 ,  Three W’s 47. ( Owl and W’s games to play )

                 “Night Owl start to remove those squatters……….”
…….. from that top of the tree branch with an 11-0 win over Meerkats.
Three W’s , took a very nice 8-3 win over Sunset which helped “evict” one pretender.
Kokalo, however hang on to this branch by one claw with their 9-2 win over Armourada.
With games in hand ,Night Owl are waiting to strike. Who wants to be a mouse when these Night predators are around???? 
“Hoots Mon” as Gordon’s Armourada might say when Kokalo’s Richard Gardner did a 10 dart 301 against him.
Armourada’s Capt Senan got his own back though by beating Negg 2-0

League Table
Kokalo -  65
Night Owl – 62 – Games in hand
Sunset – 59
Three W’s – 55 – Games in hand
Armourada – 37
Petros Owlettes – 18
Meerkats – 14.

"" Biiigggg Kokalo Kock-up """

Kokalo’s  game plan was to Konquer Night Owl, in their Wednesday night Klash, but instead ended up with a 10-1 Kicking and Krash down from that top branch. A match that took around 2 ½ hours to complete saw a very on form Owl taking no prisoners Killing 19 scores of 100+. Dimitris & Makis taking 7 each & 5 to Nickos.  Those wise old Owls now sit comfortably in that “Top of the Tree House” Doors and windows firmly closed.

No margin for error now in the battle for the runners up spot. Sunset’s 10-1 win over Meerkats moves them into 2nd on 69 points, now 3 points clear of Kokalo. Bad Boys took a 9-2 win over Petros’s Owlettes and this, plus their 10-1 win last week, also gives them a mean chance on 62 points

Three W’s, meanwhile may regret their delay in agreeing Night Owl’s dates for the re-arranging of their outstanding games. Their win over Armourada by 7-4 gives them 62 points. Night Owl do not need the points so these matches,for them, are without pressure. Three W’s just might need a few extra points to sneak into 2nd.

Points

Night Owl – 72 . Sunset – 69 , Kokalo – 66 , Bad Boys – 62 , Three W’s – 62 , Armourada – 41 ,
Meerkats – 24 , Petros’s Owlettes – 22.

Sunset vs Kokalo will be a must win match for both, next week!!!

" Ah , More points for Ar-mour - They get ada to beat every week "

Armourada never go down without a fight, every Winter and every match. This week they netted  another 9 points, against Meerkats. They “hover” around the middle of the League table with 50 points.
Nice first singles wins here for Meerkats Nicki and Armourada’s Ann.

Meanwhile….Night Owl are building a “Granny Annex” alongside that Tree House and their 11-0 win over Petros’s Owlettes means they can soon invite the League Runners Up to stay for a while, as guests only.

KOKALO hope to holiday there after a fine 7-4 result over SUNSET. Both teams sit joint second on 73 points.
Sunset will be hoping that, next week, Petros’s Owlettes sharpen those talons and take points from Kokalo.
Kokalo, meanwhile will be cheering for Night Owl against Sunset.
(Another 10-1 ????)
But…Do not write off Bad Boys and Three W’s yet who both sit on 62 points with games in hand.

The ladies table “hots up” with Boneen (Kokalo) on 52 , Jean (Armour) on 42 ,and Maggie (Meerkats) on 41.
I have yet to receive the scoresheet for Meerkats vs Owlettes , where Meerkats notched up their first win with an 8-3 result. So Maggie’s percentage could be higher.

Kokalo’s Richard Gardner leads the 100+ merit table with 51 scores and Dimitris, Night Owl, chases with 33.

Best Pairs % is Dimitris and Paul , Night Owl on 5 from 5.

The Round Robin “Groups” look interesting. The league “Top 4” who head EACH GROUP are:-
Nickos (Owl) – 100% - (8 from 8 in singles)
Makis (Owl) – 91%
Richard (Kokalo) – 83%

The Winners have already been decided , guys.
A super team and very laid back/ friendly with it.

But....... How about this...?

" Vassilis saves Meerkats brush-or is it tail "

At 7-0 down, against Three W’s, it was up to Vassilis to get a point on the board. He duly obliged with a 2-1 win over Yiorgos (W’s) Final result 10-1 to Three W’s who now look to be in the running for the League Runners up spot. Three W’s duo of Xrisanthos & Aris hold the unbeaten Pairs record of 7 wins from 7.

Sunset were “tanned” but not burnt in their clash with Night Owl. 26 scores of 100+ were shared by both Teams.Night Owl came out on top, with a hard earned 8-3 result. A consolation prize for Sunset was Andy taking the feathers of Owls Nickos 2-0 & ending Nickos’s super winning streak of 8 from 8.
Night Owl duo “Rainbows” Dimitris & Paul chase that top pairs spot with another win making 6 from 6.

Bad Boys, meanwhile were nearly punished by Armourada at 4-4 equal but then went into tantrum mode and won the last 3 games. Final result 7-4 to the “Boys”.

Current Points
Night Owl – 91 , Sunset – 76 . Kokalo – 73 , Three W’s – 72. Bad Boys – 69.
Armourada – 54 , Meerkats – 27 , Owlettes – 22.

Both Kokalo vs Owlettes & Three W’s vs Bad boys still to play. – Still a hard task to fill that 2nd place.

Ladies table leads Bonneen on 50 , Jean on 46 and Maggie on 37. – (1 result still waiting on Maggie)

Merit top is Kokalos Richard on 51 with Mick, Sunset, chasing on 37.

Only 180 so far is Owl’s Makis and a 160 out by Kokalos Richard, is still the shot to beat.

"" The following posting was somehow lost way before Christmas ""
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Arillas Bench Knock Out bought 10 x 2 men & 1 women Teams to the Sunset Bar at the end of October. An idea of Kevin G, who not only supplied the winners shield but a cash donation. Spiros who many of you saw at Kostas on the beach in the Summer, also matched Kevin's cash donation.

Played all on 1 night, as a Team K/O, the finalists were Maggie,Gordon and Gary (Armourada) vs Bob, Dimitris, and Alexandra (Owl-Rainbow) The Owl combination proved too strong and ran out the winners 3-1.

No one were losers on the night though, as all teams who failed to reach the final each received a free set of flights. The losing semi finalist Teams both received 15e. The Team runners up received 21e with the winners taking not only 45e. but the "On the Bench" sheild plus an individual award each.

Dimitris , Owl, hit the only 180 on the night and won an award for his Team.

A super night for all which would not have taken place but for Kevins idea plus donation and of course Spiros. Kostas was his uncle , DONCHYERKNOW?

Cheers Negg

Thanks for the report Neill, good to know that the Bench Knockout was supported so well in memory of Kostas.

Many, many thanks to Kevin for his generous donation, also to Spiros for his cash donation, Kostas was a lovely man who is remembered by lots of visitors to Arillas.

Well done to all who took part, everyone a winner. Thanks for all your hard work, because without you Eggy none of this enjoyment would have been possible.

"" Owlettes and Meerkats may hold the key........"""

…………that unlocks the runners up spot in the 2013 NTS Winter darts league.

Three W’s currently challenge for 2nd after a fine 6-5 win over Kokalo. At 5-2 up Kokalo watched much needed points drift away. 5 points and a hangover may not be enough.
But… They bounced back to beat Petros and his Owlettes 11-0, so, Three W’s may need an 11-0 win over Owlettes, next week. Bad Boys, who this week beat Sunset 6-5, will also be after an 11-0 next week, against Night Owl???– Hmmm!! – Difficult as the Owl win average is 9 points per match.

Kokalo want 5 points to clinch runners up spot and play Meerkats, last game, next week. Can they handle this pressure?? – Will they all be drinking lemon tea???

Sunset will be looking for, at least, a 11-0 win over Armourada and hope that both Owlettes & Meerkats take valuable points away from Three W’s and Kokalo.

If Meerkats win 9-2 will it be drinks on Sunset??
Will Petros and his ladies show Xrisanthos and his boys where the doubles are??

Meanwhile, Night Owl, on 100 points, relax, in their “Tree Top House” and enjoy watching all suffer.

Points
Night Owl – 100 / Kokalo – 89 /Three W’s – 82 / Bad Boys – 82 / Sunset – 81 /Armourada – 56
Meerkats – 31 / Petro’s Owlettes – 29

It’s been a week of records broken and new ones made. Kokalo’s Negg & Richard ended the 7 from 7 unbeaten pairs run of Three W’s Xrisanthos & Aris. Richard added a 9 dart 301 to his 10 & 11 darter and sits on 62 scores of 100+ for the season. Three W’s, Yiorgos, hits the only 171 (3 xT19) this Winter League. Armourada’s Roger & Sharon ended the 7 from 7 unbeaten pairs run of Night Owl’s Dimitris & Paul whilst Armour’s Jean takes the scalp of “Rainbow Owl” Spiros, in her singles, taking her tally to 8 wins from 12, and a 50% success rate on legs played.  Best unbeaten pairs record now is Owl’s Nickos & Makis on 5 from 5. Owlettes got a little revenge, over a Meerkats first round defeat, by winning their return match 7-4. Vassilis for Meerkats gets his 2nd singles win, and first pairs win with Doug. New Greek Team, Bad Boys, are quite nice lads really and have played very well all Winter. As a Team, they have notched 102 of the 656 League 100+ totals hit so far.

The Round Robin Groups prove very interesting:-
Group 1 – Makis – Xrisanthos – Senan – Doug (Meerkats)
Group 2 – Dimitris (Owl) – Kostas Lefkimiatis – Petros – Jean
Group 3 – Mikalis – Mick – Kostas Fakiolas – Maggie
Group 4 – Richard – Andy – Neill – Sally.

Only 1 game left folks

Cheers

" POP makes Xris cross "

It was Petros’s Owlette Pam who stopped Capt Xrisanthos and his Three W’s Team from an 11-0 victory this week in the NTS League.

But……. As Kokalo won 9-2, against Meerkats, that 11-0 would not have been enough to take the runners up spot. It was a very nervous Kokalo who needed at least 5 points against Meerkats but made it, at a price.
That wise ole kat Brenda knocked Boneen of the top ladies spot, and Doug n Vasillis ended the 5 from 5 winning streak of Kokalos two Nickos. – Sacrifices have to be made!!

Sunset knew that an 11-0 may have kept the pressure on but, maybe, forgot that Armourada still have that “Armour”  that has protected them over the last 4 Winters.  “Veteran” Jean disposed of Gary 2-0 and Ann won her second singles at the expense of Dave. Jean n Gordon then followed uo with a pairs win. Final result 8-3 to Sunset. Jean finishes top of the ladies group with 9 wins from 13 singles. A super 69% average which many other league players would like to have.

Night Owl, meanwhile, bashed Bad Boys, by 9-2 with Nickos n Makis holding their unbeaten pairs record to 6 from 6.

Final Results after all League Games.
Night Owl – 109..Kokalo – 98..Three W’s – 92..Sunset – 89…Bad Boys – 84…Meerkats – 33..Owlettes - 30

The ROUND ROBIN invitation now looks interesting in the 4 groups.
Group A – Makis / Andy / Stathis / Doug Meerkats
Group B – Nickos / Kostas Fakiolas / Jean / Senan
Group C – Richard / Mikalis / Kostas Lefkimiatis / Maggie
Group D – Xrisanthos /Mick / Petros / Pam

All the above players are here by merit in as the top two, in each Team, with their singles wins. But……
…. a reminder here that any above  player can nominate another Team player to represent him/her.
However that “nominated player” will fill the same slot as the original player.

" They think it's all over! - 5 weeks and tis! "

The NTS Darts league is moving quickly to our Presentation Evening at Sunset Bar on the 13th April. Any of you Forum guys that may be in Arillas are welcome to attend. Please let me know by PM.

The K/O competitions are now taking shape. Our K/O’s only happen, thanks to, not only, you Forum pals but also to the continued generous support of our K/O sponsors.

The “Villa Linakis” 3 a-side Team K/O has now reached the final stage with Meerkats vs Sunset Bar.  Sunset Bar’s semi-final, vs Three W’s went to the last leg of the last game. At 3-0 up, with W’s only winning 1 leg from 7, Sunset seemed to be coasting, but 3W’s fought back.3-2 ,became 4-2 then 4-4.
 It was that last leg in the last singles game that clinched it for Sunset. – Pressure – or what?
Meerkats have a good league record against Sunset, taking 4 points from them at the start of the Winter Season. With a 501 format in the Team event and the best of 9 games this could be a cracker!

The “Jinksy Duo” 301 mixed pairs has also now reached the finals stage. Negg & Owlettes Sally will meet the might of Sunset’s Mick and Fiona. Negg offers grateful thanks here to Sally for hitting the doubles he couldn’t. Red Dragon Darts also support this K/O with a darts voucher for the winners

Next Tuesday is the “Chinatown” 301 singles K/O with 24 entries. Chinatown is a super Chinese restaurant which keeps all happy, in the Winter, when we yearn for sweet n sours , sizzling beef etc.

Wednesday is the Ladies singles K/O with extra prizes of meat vouchers by a local butcher.

The “Villa Theia” Round Robin brings together the 2 nominated players from each team who chase this elite award. Xrisanthos (3 W’s) has won this the last 2 Seasons...He’s back! Will he retain it?

The “Rainbow-Anemos” 501 pairs K/O happens on the 27th March and not forgetting the “Arilliac Super Singles” which is scheduled for the 2nd April.
(26 entries for this one.)
Dimitris, Rainbow, is ready for all you dart players in the Summer. Spiros,Anemos, unfortunately will be cooking at Afionas. His darts are great – His cooking is better!

“Dawns Delights” sponsor the best lady player and top of the 100+ table plus the Number 1 in the league singles. Many of you know Dawn. She supplies meals and cakes for various Villas around North Corfu. Night Owl support the league again with awards for 180’s scored, highest shot out, and best pairs. Night Owl will welcome all this Summer and Nickos can show you all those new 2013 awards! (In between cooking a meal or two)

Can I repeat, it is down to all the generous support we receive which helps fund these competitions.
It’s good for those who take part and good for those Tavernas that host them.

Well done, you lot.

Negg

" It's all "M's" folks "

Meerkats Maggie and Marcia Met in the final of the ladies singles K/O. 10 players entered and a good night was had by all. Twas a very good final with Marcia coming out the winner, against team mate Maggie, in the deciding leg. There were many good scores and some double finishing we would all be proud of.
The winner and runner up both receive an award plus a discount voucher against meat purchased from Darryl Bill,“The English Butcher” at New Perithia.

The 301 singles final has also been decided. Mick, Sunset, will face Douglas from the Three W’s. Mick will be a busy man, on finals night, competing in this game, the mixed pairs final and the Team K/O final. Negg hopes he will be very tired before the mixed, for obvious reasons!

The Round Robin takes place on the 19th March and the 20th will see these finals produce worthy winners.

Reckon a few of you will recognise some of these names in our Round Robin
Hard to pick an overall winner but give it a go.
--------------------------------------------------------------------
This looks to be a very good grouping of players. And this is the final draw for Tuesday night.

Group A looks interesting with Spiros (Son of Owl) topping the table with 9 singles wins from 12.  Meerkats, Dougie, can spring surprises here with a 50% singles strike rate.

Group B is headed by Xrisanthos winning 20 of his 25 singles. Andy has 12 wins from 15 so they are the ones to beat. A hard group with Kostas, 12 from 16, and Sally who has a ladies singles win under her belt and has also reached the mixed pairs final. Pam may replace Sally here and don’t forget she won the mixed pairs, last Winter with Owl’s Nickos.

Group C has Marcia, current ladies singles winner, but the favourite is Mikalis with a 75% singles record. Neill and Yiorgos, I’m sure will punish any mistakes the other two make.

Group D has Capt. Bob, singles/pairs strike rate of 70% and also Stathis on a 7 from 10 singles average. Don’t forget Petros who has taken some mighty scalps this year and Maggie who seems to play better singles than pairs, winning 4 of her games this Winter.

If any player fails to turn up then a “Wild Card” draw, already made, is Paul Owl as first replacement. Any other “Wild Cards” necessary is made from any league players present that wish to compete.

See groups on next post

" Not another bl***y Lewis????? "

First we have PDC’s Adrian “Jackpot” Lewis and now we have......
. .....Mick “No Prisoners” Lewis, who like his professional counterpart loves to win titles and prize money is irrelevant.
 (It is in our League, anyway, as we don’t have any!)

Last night, at Sunset Agios Stephanos, Mick beat Doug, Three W’s, by 3-2 taking the “Chinatown” 301 singles knock out title. It was a good final with both players scoring well and on a 301 there is no margin for error.
Especially when Mick just misses a 151 out, scraping the double top wire with his 3rd dart.

Mick then went on to win the “Jinksy Duo” mixed pairs final, with partner Fiona, by 3-1. Negg and Sally take the runners up spot. Both lady players were not there just to make up the numbers as Sally hit the vital double to keep hopes alive at 2-1, but then Fiona clinched the title with a 3 dart finish popping double 18 with her 3rd dart.

Sunset trio of Mick, Andy and Alan also took the “Villa Linakis” Team K/O, with a 10-2 leg win over Meerkats
The score line does not do justice to Meerkats though, as many legs had both sides on that vital double.

It’s been a good week for Sunset Team as Andy took the “Villa Theia” Round Robin winning all 6 of his games and Mick took 2nd spot with 5 wins from 6. Capt Bob finished on 4 from 6 and Negg on 3 from 6.

Next Wednesday sees the “Rainbow/Anemos” 501 pairs K/O. With Mick and Andy, pairing up, there is no guessing the favourites.

Cheers
Negg
Title: Re: For darts lovers only - Others may be bored to tears.
Post by: Eggy on March 30, 2013, 06:28:24 PM
The 501 pairs K/O gave up two suprises.

Alan (Ex Wash House) and Gordon (Maggies no.1) beat favourites Mick n Andy in their semi final.

They now meet Capt Bob, who teamed up with Three W's Doug Reason and duly despatched the strong 2nd favourites, Three W's Xrisanthos n Mikalis.

Next Tuesday is the last K/O before the NTS League says "bye bye" until next  Winter. Darts will be put in storage and sun loungers taken out.
The last K/O , this Winter ????? - The Arilliac Super Singles , of course.
(Now who sponsors this one , dare I ask!)
Cheers

" Night Owl retain the Arilliac 501 Super Singles "

The Arilliac Super Singles has to be the top of the cream competition in the league and attracted 16 of the league’s best players. There were no easy games from the start. (Players league % is shown in brackets)

First round games saw Mikalis (75) dispose of Negg (67) by 2-0 whilst that young Owl Petros (57) pushed Mick (73) from Sunset eventually losing 2-1. Brother Owl, Spiros,(64) then beat Mick -2-1. Three W’s Doug (66) produced a good result of 2-1 against Sunset’s Andy (80) to then lose 2-1 against Mikalis.  Kokalos Leon (50) beat Three W’s Yiogos (62) 2-1 and then beat Sunsets Spiros (62) to then fall at the hands of Sunsets Alan (67)
Rainbow/Anemos Spiros (75) beat Bad Boys Lezsek (45) only to fall, in the next round, at the hands of brother Dimi.

The semi-finals bought together, Dimitris (83) and Sunsets Alan. A 2-1 win, for Jimmy, that could have gone either way with both players after the winning double. It was nearly an Owl final with young Spiros vs Three W’s Mikalis.
A 2-1 win here for Mikalis with both players having chances in the final leg.

In a best of a 5 leg final, Dimitris coasted away to a 3-0 win, leaving Mikalis once again to take runners up spot.
(Twice the bridesmaid – Next year the bride??)

That’s it folks for this Winter – Hope you were all on the edge of yer seats! – Just Presentation left.

Yes, many thanks Neill. Your reports are well received by all of us, and are as they have all said, a winter connection with the place which is never far from our thoughts. Jen and I have been privileged to see some of the "action" live, and some of the "drama" too.

In particular, though, you have been so generous to the forum in maintaining this thread. You now seem to have TWO rods down your back, with Arillas Today as well. Promise to give you a respite on that one for a few weeks when we're there in July.

So, the first ouzo is on me when we get there. (The rest will be on you of course........)

It's fun doing these posts. Keeps the brain active. Arillas today will soon take first priority now we move closer to May.

Presentation for Darts will be on Saturday 13th April at Sunset Bar
(Ag. Stephanos)

Tickets which include food and live music are 10e. Maybe a non profit raffle with cash prizes and money left over for some extra wine.
About 50 people at the moment so anyone here let us know as soon as......

I am the grim reaper of darts betting and am thinking about "Begging Letters" to Pro players.
Something along the lines as:-
"Send me 100 euros or I will place a bet on you to win this competition."

The "Grand August Annual" darts K/O took place at Rainbow on Tuesday and attracted ,in excess, of 20 players.

The "Old Guard" were there, represented by Capt Bob n Pavlos (Night Owl) plus Big Al (Sunset Bar), Eggy (Armourada) together with Rainbow's Dimitris and Stammatis. UK Guests, from last year, were also back for another go, including Jersey Steve, Young Ben, Mr Snape, Charlie n Jerry. New kids on the block included Paniotis (Son Of Dimitris) and Vassilis, representing "Nickoletas" , Ag Stephanos. Plus Young Yiannis for Rainbow and Dimi for Nickoletas.
And the two youngest players in the competition, Paniotis and Vassilis , both 11 years old, showed the veterans how the game should be played.

For Paniotis, his trip to the final, included scalps of Capt Bob and Jersy Steve whilst Vassilis surprised all, in his semi final against Rainbow Dimi, with one hundred out (T20 - D20) to get that 2nd final slot.
180's were scored by Paniotis and Capt Bob.

The final saw no margin for error from both players with high scores and clinical double finishing. Paniottis clinched the result with a fine finish to take the match 2-0. (Allowing his opponent only 3 darts at a double)

Not bad guys for a couple of 11 year olds.
Pani has been playing for just over a year and Vassilis for around 5 months.
What will they be like next year??

Once again Jaycee Trophies supplied the awards and are now the major suppliers for our Arillas Tavernas who offer regular Summer K/O's for those
on holiday. http://www.jayceetrophies.co.uk/

"He's not Bergerac but he gets his doubles "Wright" and stings his opponents "

It wasn't John "Nettles", but Jersey John Wright ,one of the three Jersey boys, who won the August Bonanza darts, on Thursday at Armourada. Well supported, with another field of 18 players, "Young Guns" Paniotis n Vasilis n Dimitris crash after first round games, but playing very well. There has to be a loser though. "Big Al" reminded hot favourite "Jersey Jacko" of this with some double finishing which would have confused Leonardo Da Vinci!!. Byeee Jacko!
(Jacko had already sent Jersey Steve back to his table to finish his meal)

Negg was happy to scrape though in two rounds but then got his "ceramics" glazed by Hippos Pete who got to the semi-final.

It was "Jersey John" who cracked the finishing of Pete in that semi with a 2-1 win who then went on to take the final 2-1 against "Big Al!
Unlucky for Alan as supporter Liz had already spent the prizemoney!!

A super night yet again and hosts, Armourada, looked after every one very well

" Super Calum goes ballistic and makes others feel atrocious!!............ "
........ on doubles out, that is. - It certainly was a "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" of clinical finishes.

At last Thursday's "Round Robin" Knock Out. where all play all, at Tria Adelphia, it was young Calum who ran out the winner, only losing 3 legs in total, and winning all his matches.
Many know Calum, grandson of Mick n Jill who bring this lad every year to teach the locals how to play.

He takes back to the UK, with him, a super award from the night and much more respect from the guys that play him , every year.

Cheers

Lovin it....

Calum has seen a serious focus develop over his formative years, and I hope he will one day get the commentarty on TV "One hundrid and EIGHTY!!!!" And as a result become one of our revered darts professionals.

Eggy and Arillas may have primed the pump, but it is up to him. Maybe the name Naughton will replace Taylor one day soon as the recognisable darts star. GO FOR IT CALUM!!!!!

Vasilis, from Nickoletos, who has hit 14 x 180's in the last two weeks.

Goes to his first K/O comp, at Armourada last Thursday and beats "Hippos" Pete in the Final!!
Also at Rainbow on Friday - Bugger!

And... another Nickoletos guy, Dimitris......

I have made a cunning plan to give that young Dimitris all the knowledge, I know, as he listens and he learns from all he the help he is given.

Meanwhile............... The last darts K/O at Rainbow, last night.

The question that must be asked is ..... "Rainbow Dimitris , are you training your sons to beat all??"

First we have Paniotis and now Yianis gets in on the scene!!!!!!

We should change his name to "Jack the Giant Killer" as he disposed of Night Owl's Makis, first round, and then Night Owl 2, Father Jimmy, 2nd round and then ME, in the final.... Why me? - Do I not practice every day?
Well done Yianis from all of us....Yet another new kid on the block!

I love to see the youngsters trouncing the oldsters. It is why I teach teenagers at College, in the hope they will better themselves and do better in life than their doting parents ever thought they would. And sometimes I succeed.

Sad it was the last one. Being able to share in the enthusiasm of the darts players when I am there in Arillas, and all of Neill's posts on forum has been a "K/O" for me.

" Meet the Meerkats !!! "

A happy go lucky bunch who, on Wednesday, extended their claws and scared the daylights out of the newly formed "Hotel Marvelous" Team. "Marvel" could only stand and "Marvel" at why they missed the doubles and Meerkats did not.

The match went to the deciding leg of the last game which, with a great deal of luck, went the way of Marvel, only after all players had shots at the double. 6-5 to Marvel , who felt Marvelous! (Or relieved!)

And.... what is Vasilis playing at? - Hitting doubles? - (We thought he was "Armour-Less" at Darts.)

We are now half way through the Winter League. Only 4 teams, this Winter, due to many Greek players seeking work away from the Island and quite a few "ex-pats" returning to the UK.
However it is still nail biting stuff!!! - (Edge of my seat as I type!!)

Three W's lead the field with 43 points and Kokalo chase with 38 points. Marvel have 37 points and are still in the game whilst Meerkats, who sit with 14 points continue to feel happy that those points won make a big difference to the other three teams.

The best 301 game is Xrisanthos (W's) with 10 darts.
Andy (Marvel) and Leon (Armourada) top the 100+ table with 21 each.
Xrisanthos holds the highest out with 102
Negg has a 171 ( 3 x treble 19's ) but no 180's recorded ?? WOTSALLTHATABOUT?.

6 more matches to go, in the new year. - Can you stand the pressure of reading more reviews?
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Arillas Bench K/O takes place, this Wednesday and 19 players will compete for the award, donated by Kevin G, last year. Favourites are Andy (Marvel) , Xrisanthos (W's) and Negg ( Marvel) but with Negg drawn against Andy, in the first round???? - Who is going home early??

The league starts up again this Wednesday. Only 4 Teams due to many of our Greek pals seeking work on the mainland. ( and , of course a few back in the UK.
Tis still fun though and very laid back.

The 301 final is down to ANDY (Marvel) vs NICKOS (Nickolettos) Not planned for a while but will be a goodun as both guys are missing nothing. (At the moment!!)

I will speak with the guys about your roof. I may also need a couple of dartboards.

Well Guys!

Looking forward to Wednesday Night darts and I calculate the following:-

Marvel need to beat Three W's by 8 games to 3. - This would make Three W's 46 and Marvel 45 points.
Kokalo need to scalp those Meerkats by 8-3 - This would give Kokalo 46 points.

May be close games avrio to vrathi. (Marvel would be lucky to get a 7-5 though me-thinks!)
Will Kokalo go top of the table??
Will Meerkats show their claws and just give away a few scraps,at a double, for their opponents??
Will Three W's rise to the challenge??
Will Marvel be as Marvelous as Marvel can be??.
Will I very soon stop talking a load of drivel??

Who knows Guys!
Watch this space.

Post by: Eggy on January 14, 2014, 10:13:53 PM
Val n Bill - You lil 'ole tigers ,you.

I am confused as well.-So to make it easier to understand.

There are 6 matches left and the under-dogs, or under-cats are those "Meeeer" mortals!!
 Marvel, with Negg, will of course win the league, but.. Three W's have the same thought with Xrisanthos.

Leon's little crowd at Armourada are hoping that any Three W's and Marvel result will be a close one so they can pull points on both Teams. Armourada also rely on the Meerkas pulling out all their claws and scratching the eyes from both Three W's and Marvel.

Marvel, meanwhile hope that Meerkats will purr away to a win over Armourada.
 
Armourada will hope that Three W's will not pass "GO" and collect 200e and Marvel will then demolish Three W's with dual 8-3 wins. (Home and away that is)
... but then Armourada also needs wins against Three W;s.
... Meerkats have also got to take valuable points away from Armourada and Three W's to ease the way forward for Marvel.
Bottom line is Armourada and Marvel to both win tomorrow night. Then the crucial game may be when these Teams meet. But then Meerkats could spring a surprise on Three W;s on the same night!!??

Meanwhile, Tonto, who is not signed for any Team will continue to disguise himself as a door but might just get his knob shot off.

I hope this clarifies the current position for you
Headache now so bed for me.

Seems straightforward to me... Ha Ha. Need Mythos and lots of it to get my head round it properly.

I notice there is no mention of Night Owl. Sad if they don't play.  My problem now is like Val's, in that I have feelings of support for most, if not all of the teams. So many lovely people involved, so many lovely evenings to remember.

I guess that if Neill is playing for Marvel, I will carry their flag this season.

My best wishes to them all though.

Marvel's 6-5 win over Three W's was not enough to close that points gap.
Three W's now sit with 48 points with Marvel on 43 points.

Kokalo, yet to play Meerkats will be looking for all 11 points to make them level with Three W's.

Next weeks clash between Kokalo and Marvel may just decide who wins our little League.
A 6-5 either way is no good to either Team as Three W's play Meerkats. W's will be looking to repeat the 10-1 result they had on their previous meeting.

"A Meer-Katastophe for the Armourada Troupe"

Not even the "Dominant Males" , "Lil" Doug and Vasillis, could prevent Meerkats finishing on the wrong end of an 11-0 against Three W's, who now sit happily with 59 points.
(Rumour has it that "Uncle Billy" could not concentrate as he was thinking of his future babysitting duties)

The Kokalo-Marvel clash went the way of Marvel who left Armourada with a valuable 8 points.
Both Kokalo and Marvel have yet to play Meerkats = Marvel hope that Kokalo will beat Three W's , next week, as they are still 8 points behind the Three W's.
A good result for Marvel and a bad one for W's may close the gap.

A "pre-calculation" of how the league will finish. Just for the "A.A's" on the forum. (Arillas Anoraks)
Just a prediction and just for fun. - Any "A.A's" reading are welcome to comment, or place their bets with William Hill.

Right now , we have:-
Three W's - 59
Marvel - 51
Kokalo - 41
Meerkats - 14

Three W;s will be favourites to win the League and will finish on 82 points.
Marvel will be unlucky and finish on 81 which will probably be my fault, losing a game I should have won.
Kokalo may be happy with 78 points & blame Meerkats for taking those 4 valuable points away from them
Meerkats will be very happy with their 21 points knowing that they cannot be under estimated and any Team that plays them will have to fight for every point they need.

" DUGGIE DIGS DEEP........... "

.......and saves a white wash , for the Meerkats, against Marvel who ran out the 10-1 winners. It was "No Yolk" for poor Negg who cracked under the strain and lost 2-1 against Doug. Marvel may need that point and, if so, Negg will surely be boiled alive by his Team!!

Meanwhile, Three W's were "KOKALODE" by the Armourada squad who won 6-5. The league is still open wide to all three Teams, plus of course Meerkats, who continue to steal valuable points.

Three W's - 64
Marvel - 61
Kokalo - 57
Meerkats - 16 (6 of these points against Marvel - Whoops!!)

Next week will see Kokalo vs Meerkats. Kokalo will be after an 11-0. - Meerkats may surprise them!

" Marvel lose.................................................."

................ two valuable points, against Meerkats, and now have it all to do for the League Winners title.

Three W's still remain favourites with games in hand but have still to play Marvel.
 
Kokalo, also with games in hand, face Three W's soon. Kokalo and Three W's still have games against Meerkats. The League winners cup could be in the hands of the Meerkats who continue to steal valuable points.

Marvel may change their Team name to "M-Aaaaargh-Vel", after last nights result and hope the Meerkats will continue to improve from that result of 9-2.

"Three W's issue a big reminder to Marvel......."

...... that they are still around. With a 10-1 win over Meerkats they are only 2 points behind but with a game in hand. Marvel could only get a nervous 6-5 win over Kokalo and now look to Kokalo to give those W's boys a good thrashing in their next game. All helps Marvel DONCHYERKNOW?

The League winners title could be decided when Marvel play Three W's but Marvel may need at least an 8-3 win to topple Xrisanthos and his boys.

The super way this Winter league has been played must be reflected by Maggie (Meerkats) beating Yiorgos, (3 W's) 2-0 and Stathis (Kokalo) beating Negg 2-1.

Yiorgos spoke to me the next day and said "Well played Maggie - I was punished! - No sour grapes!"

Stahis was on 157 when Negg was on 80, Stathis went 60- 57 - and just missed 40. (Hit Double 1)
Everyone in Marvel was willing that last dart to go in that fat 20. Including Negg.
That my friends is what the game is all about!
Negg missies, Stathis then hit his double 19 but Negg still slept well after a super game.

" Three W's give Marvel Three P's...........
.......in last nights match which Marvel needed to win well to claim the Winter League cup
But......
P - Pressure - after losing the first 3 games with.......
P - Puzzlement as to why those vital doubles were being missed.
and....
P - The Pain at 6-1 down when they realised the Cup was no longer in their grasp.

An 8-3 win by Three W's makes them very hot favourites for the League Winners. Kokalo's 10-1 win over Meerkats now means they will need another 10-1 in their final game, with Three W's, to force a play off.

Unless there is a tsunami, hurricane, or blizzard I think W's will be celebrating already.

"Everything comes to those who wait"

In this case it comes to THREE W's who win the Winter League Darts after 5 years of trying.

A super steady consistent weekly performance gave them a healthy 7 point cushion.

Congratulations go out to Marvel , Kokalo and Meerkats who gave them a run for their title.

Special congrats go out to Meerkats who, although finished 4 from 4, kept the other Teams under pressure by taking valuable points away. The league would not have been the same without them!

Knock outs are now under way so keep on the edge of yer seats , people!

Cheers

Congrats to Xrisanthos, Maragrita and the 3W team. Have really enjoyed reading the updates Neill. Now it's time for knockouts.... but will the ouzo knock you out before an arrow has been slung?

Bittersweet feelings that the winter league is over. Have enjoyed following it, but now the new season is in touching distance, I can forget about floods and winter and come alive again.

"Sea Monkeys , Andy Stewart, is Top Banana!"

Andy Stewart, owner of Sea Monkeys Beach Bar, Sidari, but representing Marvel in the League, has now secured, back to back wins in the Round Robin K/O. It was not without a scare though, as in his group, he had to face a 3 way, 1 leg, sudden death play off to reach the final. The other finalist was Negg who, with a little luck, coasted through with 2-0 , 2-1 ,and 2-1 wins.

For Andy there was no "monkey-ing" around in the final and with a maelstrom of high scores and good double finishing sent Negg "Off to Sea" without a paddle. An all Marvel Final so pop in there sometime and see the cup.

Also, if you are around Sidari anytime this Summer, pop into Sea Monkeys, Canal D'Amour end, and "SEA" Andy. Maybe tell him you've come all the way from the UK just for his autograph.
Cheers
Negg

"Another Cup for the Three W shelf".......
.... this time with the super performance of Margarita and Spiros Tsoukalas in the mixed pairs K/O.

They did it the hard way having to beat favourites, Andy and Fiona, in a prelim and then had another 3 rounds to play. Good result and good darts plus good fun had by all.

Next week sees the start of the Team K/O's.

I am trying to get photos sorted of all players involved this Winter.
(You may then be able to put some of these extra names mentioned to faces.)

We were there for the darts AGM before the winter league started in November. What a meeting at Amourada; why aren't all meetings like that? Mezze for umpteen, beers, wines, ouzo, darts...

And we will be there in 3 weeks, after the end of the season. Sometime soon, I may just get to be there throughout and play but which team would have me? Viv is already earmarked for Meerkats - contracted, I understand! At least that would reduce the arguments.

Here's hoping, fingers crossed...

"" Another banana for a Sidari Monkey""

Another cup goes on the shelf at Marvel, thanks to Andy who wins the 301 singles K/O with a super 3-0 win over Nickos (Nickolettos) Andy would be the first to say though that the score line did not reflect the standard of darts thrown by both players. To get to the double and be denied a shot is a hard thing indeed

The Team K/O gets underway with early casualties being the "Liquorice Allsorts" team going down 5-0 to the Three W's A squad. Shot of the night was nearly Sally (Allsorts) with a 55 out (Treble 17 double 2) but that was superseded with a 180 by Mikalis (W's)

Marvel A Team got a little revenge,for losing the League Cup, beating Three W's B by 5-2 but the dark horses must be the Kokalo Trio with the hardest first round winning 5-3 with good merit scores and a 180 by Stathis (Kokalo) - Marvel B squad played well here and must now be licking their wounds!!
(The luck of the draw did them no favours)

Each winning Team from these matches will now play each other in a 3 way "Round Robin" so do not pick a winner yet or put your mortgage on a result!!

Next week brings in the 501 singles K/O and a shortlist of favourites for this must be:-
Pete (Hippopots)
Xrisanthos (W's)
Stathis (Kokalo)
Negg (Marvel)

Hard one to call guys!!
Cheers
Neill

" HIPPO POTS THE DOUBLES.........."

.......... and books his place for the final of the "Arilliac 501 singles" knock out. All rounds were of a high standard, not least his 5 leg semi-final against Team mate Leon (Kokalo), with 7 scores of 100+ recorded. A 3-2 win for Pete the Hippo who now will represent Armourada in the final.

His opponent will be that Sea Monkey, Andy, (Marvel) who after a first round scare against Mikalis (W's) winning 2-1, and after a 3rd round scare against Stathis (Kokalo) finally put his power scoring to good use beating Nickos(Kokalo) 3-0 in his semi-final. Earlier rounds had seen Nickos beating Lezsek and  Yiorgos (W's) scoring 121,120,100 and highest out of the night with 104. Andy's final tally of merits totalled 7 x 100, 2 x 140 and a 180 max.

So we have an all "wildlife" final with a Hippo vs a Monkey. As Harry Hill would say on his TV Burp series.
"Who is the best? - There's only one way to find out! - F I I I G H T !!"
Rumour has it that Richard Attenborough will be doing the scoring.

" So, cross a Hippo with a Negg and you get........?"

........ the Rainbow/Anemos Pairs Knock out winners!!

In a darting evening, where scores were scrambled and doubles were poached, Negg and Pete ran out the 3-0 winners against Spiros and Leszek (Three W's)

In earlier rounds, last years winners, Capt Bob and Doug did a "Humpy Dumpty" losing to Kokalo's , Stathis n Nickos 2-1. Favourites Xrisanthos n Michalis (W's) found no double yolks and lost 2-0 to the eventual winners. Earlier rounds had seen them cracking the chances of Bill n Dave (Marvel) and Leon n Nickos S, (Kokalo)  Stathis n Nickos were "shell shocked" losing 2-1 to finalists Spiros n Lezsek., who also fried the chances of team mates, Yiorgos n Leonidas.
The Marvel duo of Richard n Velantis practised well, with Velantis hitting his first ever 180, but sadly they never re-produced these scores in their first round. Maybe came to the boil too quickly??
(Sometimes darts is a "hardegg" - or is it heartache?)

A fun night was eggspected and had. Another award for the Marvel shelf.??
(Or is it Armourada as Pete n Negg play for different Teams??)

NIGHT OWL FUN NIGHTS ARE HERE

After a fab winter playing fun darts matches at Oscars, Hovoli, Matts, and home and after  plenty litres of tsipouro and beer drunk;  lots of curry eaten, Night Owl returns to his nest to meet Owlettes for a mixed pairs celebration  competition with lots of food, retsina, tsipouro and fun. Partners were drawn out of the hat and from the first round strong battles commenced.

Dimitris (Rainbow) /Sally vs Nick (Night Owl)/Penelope (Captain  Bob’s little Penny).  
 Let’s play darts. Dimi wins the bull. Throws first.  ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY. What a start.  After 5 throws 170 left for Dimi. 60-20-60. What a  disappointment. (And he doesn’t have any hair to pull.)  First leg goes to Dimi and Sally. Nick looked worried. 2nd leg starts. Nick – 100, Dimi -100 and they continue. 144 left for Dimi. 60-54 miss D15. Only once. Next throw straight in and Nick straight out to his kitchen to cook some spicy chicken wings and Penelope straight to the hug of Captain Borelli.
2nd match.  Spiros (Anemos)/Linda (Owlette) vs Makis (The tsipouro man)/Chilly Peppery Saucy Candy.
Game starts with a very hot Linda. Very, very hot.  Scores 105, 134, 85. What a performance. 32 left for Linda. D8, D8. Silence …and then screaming. Nick hasn’t heard her scream  ….. so loud before.!!!!! Linda’s screaming has woken tsipouro Makis out of his winter hibernation (scoring 26’s) and with 140-100-135 helped his partner to win the second leg. 3rd leg, point to point, Candy and Linda breast to breast. 97 left  for Candy ,who leaves tops… for her partner.  Spiros misses 32 and Makis really excited with Candy’s tops …finds it and sends Linda running to the kitchen to finish her special pizzas.

3rd match Captain Bob/Pam vs Gary (Villa Theia) and the Sweet cake lady Dawn.
Gary is on form 140-100, Dawn follows him and first leg goes to Gary and Dawn. Captain Bob looks at his partner and tells her: eh eh Pam, what are they doing??? I am the captain here. I’m suppose to win.  So he takes his weapons and clears the second leg. Decider1-1. Point to point and the decider goes to the double. The experience of Captain Bob gives them the win and gets Dawn busy thinking how she is going to make a D2 cake she misses.
4th match Ann (Makis M.I.L –Makes Incontrollable Laughter) partners  toy boy Petros Night Owl (I think that draw was fixed) vs Big Doug and Spiros Night Owl who was called up from his lessons due to the degradable absence of Roger’s Ann. Doug’s and Spiros’ hundreds give them the advantage and they take the first leg. Second leg is different. Spiros and Doug lost their doubles and Petros, the toy boy, D7 first dart .1-1. Another decider. Doug and Spiros look each other, sharpen their points, clean their glasses, and after a good performance took 3rd leg. All close matches.
SEMI FINALS
Dimi Rainbow/Sally vs Makis/Candy. Would it be easy for Dimi and Sally? NO. Makis has already drunk 2 bottles of retsina.  Board looks bigger for him .The doubles look bigger too. With a 86 out wins the first leg. Dimi and Sally haven’t said their last words and with Dimis’ calamariiis and Sally to finish they take 2nd leg. Another decider. Another derby. Both teams go to the double and this time it was Candy with a D14 finish to give her team the win.
Bob/Pam vs Doug/Spiros. Some said this could be the final, but it is only the semi. Only one stays alive. After a really good game, the quality play of Spiros and Doug gives them a 2-0 win .
FINAL –David vs Goliath.  Makis (retsina man for tonight) and spicy Candy vs Doug Reason and Spiros Night Owl.  Is history to be repeated?  Game starts. Makis is on the 3rd bottle of retsina. Trebles looks enormous now, and 140-100-100 follow, misses 32 but only the first time. One leg to David, battle still on and Goliath shows his strength on the 2nd leg and they easily make it 1-1. Decider again. One leg, one trophy.  Game starts, 125- Makis. Spiros follows, 125 too (whatever you do Makis, I can do it better Spiros said). Doug -100, Candy - 76.  Makis – 100, close game. Both teams go to their doubles. Pressure is on. Doug misses it. Candy misses it. Spiros misses it. Retsina drunk man straight in, David wins again.
 
What a brilliant night, what a brilliant winter without taking part in a darts League. All Night Owl and Owlettes want to say hello to Paul Sawyer who moved back to UK. Everybody misses our secret weapon, but don’t worry Paul, Gary (Villa Theia took your place. He is really good at drinking beers and he has been trained how to make the Night Owl stomach dancing. Nobody mentions his darts skills.
Night Owl had a brilliant winter playing fun friendly and competitive darts. Hope everybody has a lovely summer. Dimi Rainbow and Nick Night Owl always wait for you for a game, show you where calamari is on the board. Spiros Anemos waits to show you a calamari meze with nice view of Arillas. Captain Bob will be cruising from bar to bar with his Penelope. Gary Villa Theia will be cutting grass with his refreshment beer in the other hand and me, the tsipouro man, will hopefully be at the airport for your safe landing and take off. Yammas.

Nice report there, from the Owl. Such a shame that their darts nigh clashes with the League, as Nickos has an open invite for all to join in. I wonder if any other Forums have a "Darts Thread"?
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The  NTS "Round Robin" Team K/O now becomes very interesting as........
.... Kokalo beat Three W's by 6 games to 3.

Then... Marvel beat Three W's by a very lucky 8-1.

On a 3 way points total we have:-
Three W's - 4 (played 2 matches)
Kokalo - 6
Marvel - 8
Kokalo play Marvel tomorrow and will need a 6-3 win to take the Cup.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
To answer an e-mail I had, yesterday from a couple on holiday here in June. They have just taken up darts but find the various rules/games confusing. We play a 301 singles in the League as, to be honest, playing a 501 may take some time with 11 games per Match, all the best of 3. Equally there is no margin for error, as in 501, a bad score can be easily rectified over the longer format. A 301 game will, quite often, find the chinks in the armour of a player used to 501. A 301 also gives the non dart player a chance of beating a regular player. Many people prefer the 501 though. Join in the darts when you are here. Very sad to hear that more and more dartboards are vanishing from local Pubs and replaced by extra tables for diners. -Interested from other "Arilliacs" about their local.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The NTS league will finish tomorrow night and all winners spots will be decided. We then dust off our darts and enter in to any Summer Knock outs that are arranged.

Summer K/O 's may be 501 or 301 and I am sure that there are many local players out there who will share/organise these games to give me a rest for a while.

Cheers
Negg

"" It gets worse - DONCHERKNOW ""

A Monkey , Hippo and an Egg win the 3-aside Round Robin Team K/O!!
Representing Marvel, Andy , Pete and Negg got the 6-3 win they were after to clinch the award.

The 501 "Arilliac" Final was also played and the 501 experience of Andy paid dividends with a fine 3-0 win, scoring a 180 on the way. Hippo Pete will, I am sure, sink under the water and will "Sea-Monkeys" for a little while but will take great consolation that it was his winning game that got his Team the 6-3 in the "Round Robin".

Many places now, in Arillas, with dartboards. So as the NTS League winds down, the Summer will build and plenty more darts in the pipeline for those of you who wish , not only to play, but also to meet those faces to match the names you keep reading about.

Night Owl, Tria Adelphia, Rainbow,Coconut, Marvel and even Costas on the Beach.
So many dartboards - So little time!

" Was this the first local Summer Knock Out ? "

Three W's , last night, attracted 14 players and 6 supporters for their pairs K/O competition. Organised by Margerita (W's) with no entry fee and wine plus awards to the Winner.

It was played , as a mixed pairs, with man/women pairing drawn from the hat for every round. Plus a first round loser "Wild Card" which meant no one just played one game.

I can't remember many high scores in this best of three 501 as it was a sociable evening where darts took the second spot and no one kept a merit sheet. I do remember Margerita scoring a 2 though and many 26's hit by Andy. Negg, I think managed a 97 , once! Xrisanthos seemed to play with eyes closed!
But other shots were good with local "guest"  Nicola checking out on 56 with 2 and some very consistent scoring. Margetita did hit a one dart double 14 though against Xrisanthos. (Think that pleased her!)

The final draw was Xris n Nicola vs Leslie n Margeritta and with a last leg "both on double" went the way of Xris n Nicola.

A super night and just as Night Owl say, you don't need a league to have fun. Good company , that's all.

Hoping Anne n Phil mention this on their blog. Didn't they do well !!!!!!
(Phil n Jen did not take part as there was a potential health hazard to others)

Forget the darts for a minute. So many did their best, and a few triumphed. But the real winners were Phil and Jen. Watching Anne and Phil chucking pointed weapons at cork boards, sharing big hugs with Marguerita, meeting Chrisanthos for the first time. They are a fantastic couple who share our love of life and each other. When a man loves a woman.....

The darts mattered not a friggin jot to Jen and me, Neill will give you the lowdown on that. Bless. We are in our spiritual home, but last night at 3Ws I mistook that I wasn't at Brouklis. I expected to turn left as I walked out of the door and be home in bed. But as usual I was ferried home.

Believe me, this place is so special. It is full of people who actually like drunk old men, and drive them safely home so they can do it all again tomorrow. I have always tried to look after myself, but here I no longer have to worry. They feed me, they need me and (in brackets) I am not quite 64. Will they do it when I am?

Breaking News !!! - You heard it here first , guys!

Our "Sea Monkey" and Winter Marvel Team player, Andy Stewart, has just won the final of the Athens Pairs open , together with , well known Acharavi player, Rob. (Can't remember his surname)

On the way to the final they beat the Greek no.1 plus partner 3-0 , I am told.
Worth a trip to Athens then? - Makes me feel humble to win a leg from him occasionally!

He will now compete in the Athens Singles open tomorrow and I wish him the best of darts.

A super result for two guys who not only put much practice into this game of darts ,but also enjoy it as a sport and not a job.

Cheers

I can be (and often am) totally flippant, but I do follow the darts in Corfu's NW league, just like I follow the local cricket in Baltonsborough where I currently live. I even get invited to the annual dinner and awards for the cricket. Sadly I don't yet live in Corfu so an invitation to their awards would not be of any use to them or me.

But I love to hear of huge success like SeaMonkey's and Rob's. My sincere congratulations to them both on an outstanding achievement. Have watched Neill at his best in the past and quite understand why he has taken quite a few games from them. It is the love of ouzo and companionship that holds him back - but who am I to say - these are attitudes which I love, and why I only watch the darts. Bored to tears? Never.

Thanks Phil.

This Summer, 5 of us have got together to form the "NOMADS" league. We are Nomads because we will wander to every local Taverna, every other Thursday, to play a League game. One person will represent each Taverna to make six players and we then make a draw for two Teams of 3.
(A 7th guest player may also be invited - So there is always a change to who plays who)

Much interest, right now, as we try and link this to whom is on holiday.
Jersey Steve and Jersey John will be here, in August , to represent Rainbow and Night Owl.
Jinksy will be here in July to represent Armourada.
Capt Bob or young Yiannis may represent Tria Adelphia and we also have the likes of Xrisanthos and young Vasillis to represent their Bars. Plus others , of course.
(we hope to get Dimi and Paniotis from Rainbow, as well)

Our Group of 5 Nomads frighten me!!
Andy Stewart (Sea Monkeys) Athens Pairs plus Winter 501/301/Robin and Team K/O winner
Dave Gallagher (Sidari) Nice guy but a lot nicer if he stopped hitting treble 20's
Pete (Hippopots) Just won the first Sea Monkey singles K/O plus Winter Pairs. (Beat Andy in the final)
Doug Reason (Kavadaddes) Last years pairs winner with Capt Bob.(A 501 veteran from the Winter)
and... moi... with only a "Robin" losing final plus Team K/O win share plus Pairs K/O final to my name.

ANYONE BORED YET??

Our first match was last Thursday, at Marvel, and the luck of the draw was against me and Pete meeting those top 3 buggers!

Results were:-

Team A.
Andy - won 2-1. 2-1. 2 - 0.
Dave - won 2-1. 2- 0. 2-1
Doug - won 2-1. 2-1, 2-1,

Team B
Negg - Lost 2-1. 2-1. 2-1
Pete - Lost 2-1. 2-0, 2-0
Valantis (Representing Marvel) lost 2-1. 2-0
Spiros (Guest player - Brother of Costas) lost 2-0 (But had darts to win 2-0!)

28 scores of 100+ were recorded so you will see that this will be a very competitive small league.

We play for the "Jersey Challenge Cup" kindly donated by the "Jersey Boys"
So, watch this space guys.

ps. I was robbed!!

"NOMADS" play at Nickoletos, on the hill towards Ag.Stephanos, next Thursday.

Guest player is Vasilis (12 years old and already famous from last years Rainbow K/O) plus Nickos who went through to the 301 pairs final, last Winter.

Should be fun, as long as I don't play Mister C. Monkey.

Be there if you're here. Support is always welcome -

Apologies to the Jersey boys on my error in posting. I have now amended it.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Our second round took place, last night, at Nickoletos (Top of hill going towards Ag Stephanos)
Guest player was 12 year old Vasilis, mentioned a few times , last Summer.
He caused a few heart tremors with the Nomads, just losing out 2-1 to Pete, then beating Doug by 2-1 and then just missing the all important double against league leader Dave losing 2-1 again.
Consolation was he has the highest shot out with 90, finishing on the bull.
Once again the draw plays an important part in this league with bonus points going to the team trio who win on the night. The combination of Dave , Doug and Pete beat Negg , Andy , Vasilis 7 games to 2 which changes the league table yet again.
Top of the tree is Dave with 8 points and Doug sits on 6 points with Andy on 5. Pete trails just behind and Negg holds up all four.

Each match the top 2 players "Captain" each Team so Dave will be playing against Doug. A draw is made for who competes in their team. In 2 weeks time we are at Matts Bar Sidari and local player Bill will be the guest/wild card.

Cheers
Negg

" NOMAD Dave keeps 100% record"

The third Summer Challenge, for the Jersey Cup, took place at Matts Bar, in Sidari, last night.
Dave Gallagher, Sidari, kept his unbeaten record beating, guest "Sidari Bill", "Monkey Andy" & Doug.

Bringing in a bonus point for his Team, with a match result of 5-4 gives him a 5 point lead over Andy, Doug and "Hippo Pete"

Andy sits in 2nd spot and will meet Dave next week, at Sunset Bar. A draw is made to complete the 3 a-side Teams. Vassillis, from Nickolettos, will represent Sunset Bar. The luck of the draw will always play a crucial part in this "Summer Challenge"

In three matches, so far, Andy has recorded 2 x 180's and 19 scores of a 100+. A league total of 77 scores of 100+ have also been recorded..
Negg continues to be firmly rooted to the bottom of the table and, although can hit doubles, continues to be outscored, by consistent treble bashing,  and has very few shots at any doubles, at all.
( Both Dave and Pete share 50% of all merit scores recorded , with 22 each)

Cheers
Negg

"Hippo Pete n Egg bow down to the King "

Nomad Guest , Vasillis again proved his 13 year old talents with 2-0 wins over Pete and Negg , at Sunset Bar , in match 4 of the Summer Darts challenge. He nearly made it 3 from 3 against Sea Monkey, Andy who just scraped through with a 2-1 win.

Dave's unbeaten record of 9 wins ended at Sunset, losing 2-0 to Andy and 2-1 against Negg.
The "Team Result" of 5-4 gives Dave and Doug the bonus points.
The bonus point for Doug now moves him back into 2nd spot and he will now face Dave in next weeks game at Armourada. Guest player will be our well known Arilliac "Jinksy"

A massive 41 scores of 100+ were recorded at Sunset, with Pete taking 10 of these and Andy taking 8.
125 scores of 100+ have been hit over 4 matches. Pete is currently merit leader on 29%.

" GRINGO hits a MEX "

Gringo aka Jinksy aka Chris J, hit a "mEximum" 180 to add to his other 11 scores of 100+ in the 5th round of the "Nomads" Summer darts challenge. His 2 wins from 3, over Dave and Pete, now moves Andy into 2nd spot with 11 wins from 15. The luck of the draw plays a major part in this league which still sees Dave G holding on to 1st place thanks to 4 Team bonus points.

Young Vassilis has again proved he can match whatever the "veterans" throw at him , with 2 wins from 3 against Pete and Dave but again losing 2-1 at the hands of Andy, after missing a possible winning double
(Handy Andy looks like he is becoming a Jinksy to Vassilis !!)

A total of 44 x 100+ scores were recorded in last nights match at Armourada with Dave taking 11 of these but losing all 3 of his games.

The next match planned for Three W's on the 22nd July will see Dave and Andy on opposite Teams so they have it all to play for.   Xrisanthos, Three W's , will be invited, to represent his Internet Bar.

" A Monkey on top of the tree "

A 2 point lead and a 78% win average is very 'andy for Sea Monkey Andy who won all 3 of his games, last night, at Tria Adelphia. Young Vasillis, Nickoletos, has quickly gone from "Guest Status" to become a serious part in this Summer darts challenge. His 3 wins, last night, brings him in on a 62% average.

Hippo Pete still leads the 100+ table with 25% of all merits recorded with Andy just behind on 24%.

The top 3 "Nomads" on the leader board are now:-
Andy Stewart - 16 points - 78%
Dave Gallagher - 14 points - 67%
Doug Reason - 12 points - 61%

The next round is planned for Three W's next Friday.

"Welsh Dragon singes Monkeys fur"

The big 2014 K/O, at Rainbow. attracted 16 of the best Summer local players with many players thinking about 2013 when Paniotis and Vasillis, both 12 years old, met in the final.
(In 2013 Paniotis ran out the winner)

Dart fingers trembled when they were drawn in at opposite ends of the draw. Other dart fingers trembled a little more when the 2 favourites were placed to possibly meet in the final.
Andy , Sea Monkeys Sidari, having won the last 7 local K/O's and the 2nd half of the Athens Pairs K/O, was up for it as was the other favourite Paul Davies who has various scalps of UK BDO players under wing.

The first rounds saw Andy take away the chances of local player Valantis (Captains Table) by 2-0, whilst  Paniotis struggled with a 2-1 win  over brother Yiannis.

Dimitris, (Or Jimmy Rainbow) , took a surprise scalp of Charles (Tria) with a 2-0, whilst Tria's Steve made light work of new comer Brachos, with another 2-0.

Stuart ( Rainbow ) practiced all afternoon for this K/O, but fell 2-0 tonight against Owl's  Capt Bob , who looked to be back with a vengeance, and taking no prisoners.

Stammatis ( Rainbow) looked very cool with a 2-0 over Colin, Sidari, who maybe regretted the chocolate cake he ate just before his game.

Paul Davies , meanwhile, tore many layers of skin from opponent John, winning 2-0.
(John admits to not playing for 6 months but will be back next year with his usual game)

Poor Vasillis met Night Owl's Makis and failure to hit his doubles cost him a 2-0 defeat.

The 2nd rounds saw Andy pull the limbs from Paniotis with a 2-0 so a repeat of these young guys meeting in the final went out of the window.

Tria Steve moved forward at the expense of Jimmy with better double hitting, whilst Capt Bob said a sad farewell to Stamatis. - Y'all come back now!

Paul and Makis had a good 'ole game and although Makis had chances the game went Pauls way.

The semi finals were all lined up and Tria Steve found Andy to hot too handle whilst Bob finally gave way to the power scoring of Paul Davies. ( Paul already with a 180 on the board , plus a 112 finish)

So , the Final as expected bought the top two together.

Fiirst leg , comfortably to Paul who took the second, courtesy of Andy who missed clinical doubles. Andy bounces back to take the third leg. The 4th leg was high scoring and "TV" style which saw Paul take out the double first. Final Result --- Paul 3 - Andy 1.

A super night and Paul will be back next year to do the double.

Cheers
Neill

"Treble two for high scoring"

Even though, in last nights games, big trebles were hard to find there have been 222 scores of 100+ after 7 matches. Hippo Pete and Monkey Andy head the leader table holding  22% each of the total.
(Or two little ducks for a Hippo n Monkey!!)

Andy maintains his grip on the leading singles with an 80% average with Sidari Dave now chasing on a 66% mark. Doug hovers on 62% whilst crucial missed doubles, last night, by Young gun, Vasillis, knocks him back to a 56% win average, but still 60% on legs.

However, the race to be the first holder of the "Jersey Challenge Cup" is not over yet as there are 8 scheduled league matches still to play.

Rainbow is still on the fixtures and the "Jersey Boys" will, I am sure, have those tungsten's sharpened up and ready, to make their guest appearance for "Jimmy's Place". (Planned for mid August)

" Jersey John pulls wool over Eggy's eyes............. "
....... and wins 2-1, with the only consolation for Negg, notching a 19 dart 501 in the 2nd leg, to make the fastest leg recorded, this Summer.

Young Gun , Vasillis , however, unpicked John's Jersey, with a 2-1 win.
Vasillis it is said, could be the  "man", he's only 13, of the match with 3 wins from 3, taking Colin 2-0 and Doug 2-1, and recording 10 scores of 100+ in the process.The highest that evening.

Meanwhile that furry Sea Monkey sits comfortably on the top of the league tree with 27 points and an 85% win average. Dave hovers around a 68% and Vasillis continues to creep up the tree, now on 64%.

Hippo Pete takes a drop in the merits and now sits on 19% of the total scored. Dave holds 21% whilst "You know who" plays with his nuts and eats fruit, or is it the other way round?, on 22%

Dougie will not be happy with a 50% and will, I am sure, be back with a vengeance.

Our pal , Sidari Colin, goes back to the UK, next week, but should be satisfied with his 33% win average plus 11 merit scores in 12 games.

With Andy, on top of the tree, maybe a warning.... To much fruit and nuts and you just might........?

 ** Vasilli bullies Billy and Hippo Pete “pots” 3 **


13 year old Vasillis, Nickolettos, played Sidari Bill, for the first time in the “Nomads” League and ran out the 2-0 winner. Hippo Pete, regained his form with 3 wins from 3 scoring 10 scores of 100+ in the process.

Meanwhile, Sea Monkey , Andy , was not “horseing” around and frightened Jersey Steve with a first leg 17 dart 501. Now the highest, so far, in the League.

The game of the night, played at Armourada, had to be Andy vs Vasillis. Vasillis took the first leg, in 17 darts, whilst Andy took the second, starting with a 180. In the deciding leg, with Vasillis on 90 and surely a chance at a double  next throw, saw Andy check out on 113.

38 scores of 100+ were recorded on the night with 12 of these to Andy who also added the scalps of Jersey Steve and Armour’s Leon to his belt. With an 86% win average, The Jersey Challenge Trophy looks to be going his way. Sidari Dave on 67% , may be chasing him home.

Although, all these guys are not “Pro’s” , they came very close to B.D.O, standard, at Armourada, last night with 501’s completed , in 17,17,19,20,22,23 darts.

Young Kane, son of Jersey Steve , got his revenge at Negg, for his semi-final defeat , at Rainbow last week, with a very nice 3-2 win this afternoon.

He retires back to those "Islands in the Channel" with some extra flights for his next 12 months practice until he returns.

Twas a sad farewell to Jersey John n family last week and now tis a sad farewell to Jersey Steve n Family tomorrow. All that remains now is the "Nomads Summer Darts Challenge" to decide who wins the Jersey Challenge Trophy which the guys donated.

" Sidari Russell has a lot to "CROW" about "

Last night , at Sea Monkeys , Sidari,  Russell Brightman was invited to compete as the guest player.
Currently No.5 in the Corfu rankings, the hustle and bustle of Russel won both tussles against Hippo Pete and Doug producing a 180 along the way, but, alas, was not a "BRIGHTMAN" against Andy , going out 2-0 which keeps Andy firmly rooted to the top spot. (Andy currently sits at No.6 in the Corfu rankings)

Young Vasillis recorded the second 180 of the night but could not find doubles as did Doug.
Hippo Pete plods on, in his own merry way and wins his other 2 games

Sidari Dave ,scraped a leg from Andy but lost 2-1 , however he stays in 2nd spot after his other two wins.

Next Tuesday will be Marvel and the guest appearance of TIMBO. (Hope he puts his flights in!)

" Marvelous display from Vasillis at Marvelous"

Young Vasillis (Nickolettos) closes the gap for 2nd spot, in the "Nomads Summer Darts Challenge" with 3 wins from 3, notching 8 scores of 100+ in the process.

Current 2nd Dave Gallagher (Sidari) may just have to pull out all the stops to hold on to this spot as only 4 matches remain. (Dave 63% and Vasillis 61% on wins with a current 60% tie on legs won)

After surviving two scares from Hippo Pete and Doug , Monkey Andy still managed a clean sweep, with 2-1 results plus a 2-0 from Dave who had many shots at that elusive double. Consulation prizes for Doug n Pete were Doug winning his other two games and Pete winning 2-1 against Valantis (Capt's Table)

Next week sees a return to Rainbow where Dimitris (Jimmy) will take on the top 3 in the league.
Dimitris will bring all his "Night Owl" experience into play and will, I am sure, take no prisoners,

Invited "Guest "Timbo" found Vasillis and Doug too good for him then took his anger out on Negg with a 2-1 win. - Why Me????

" Good 'Evans' , it's WAYNES WORLD all over again "

Fresh from his 301 K/O win, at Tria Adelphia, on Thursday, Wayne Evans was invited to make another hiccup in his holiday, to compete with the "Nomads" in their Summer Darts Challenge, on Tuesday.
Tuesday's challenge, held at Rainbow, also saw Dimitris (Jimmy) and son Paniotis take up their spears.

It was a 3 from 3 win for Wayne, beating Sidari Dave 2-0, Hippo Pete 2-1, plus the scalp of League leader,Sea Monkey Andy, 2-1, in what was the match of the evening.

Paniotis reminded Vasillis, that he has not forgotten how to play and ran out the 2-1 winner, then Dimitris delivered Vasillis the "coup de grace" with a 2-1 win after losing to Dave and Andy in previous games.
David ( as in Momo ) found Pete a Hippo too far and Sidari Bill went home without a leg to stand on.  Negg got lucky, for a change, winning 2-1, 2-1 against Dave n Pete who missed those winning doubles.

48 scores of 100+ were recorded. Wayne taking 12 of these. Pete taking 11 and 9 going Andy's way.

Another good night. Next week will see a match at Sea Monkeys, Sidari, with, I think the Corfu No.1, invited to compete.

"NOMADS" - "ROBbed"

Rob Benn, currently sitting on the Corfu Darts Ladder at No.1, was invited to compete as the Guest, in the match at Sea Monkeys, for the Jersey Challenge Cup.

Winning 6 of his 7 legs played, scoring 16 merits including a max plus legs of 15,16 and 17 darts, his wins have helped to turn the League into a very interesting last two games.
(Only the second Guest to win 3 from 3, it would be interesting to get those two together for next year)

Whilst, barring the end of the world, Andy sits safely as League Leader, the race for second spot is still open. Sidari Dave has 58% on games won, Vasillis has 58% and Pete 53%.
(Legs won % are:- Dave 54 , Pete 53 , Vasillis 68)

Next weeks game, at Three W's, and these guys have it all to play for. Negg, Doug and Bill may just be an extra thorn they may have to deal with. With nothing to lose they will be very relaxed.

Cheers
Negg

" Little Paul - Wood have loved to win 3...... "

...... but the shock of bumping into Negg, workmate and dartsmate, from over 30 years ago proved too much for him and , being roped in as "guest" on the night, could only manage 2 from 3.
(Paul n Sue Littlewood will be back next year to catch up on "lost" time)

Whilst Andy has sprinted away as the Nomads Winner, the 2nd spot is very open between Dave and Pete, thanks to Paul who beat Dave 2-1. Andy also beat Dave so only 1 win for Dave at Three W's, that night, whilst Pete scooted in with 3 from 3.

Our last match tonight, at Nickolettos, may all be on the Pete vs Dave draw.

A total of 513 scores of 100+ have now been recorded over 15 matches.

Cheers
Negg

Vassilis says -: "I am still here guys.........!"

.....and takes the scalp of Pete by 2-1 then Dave 2-1 putting pressure on both Pete and Dave who then  needed a win to take the second spot.

The "crunch" led up to the last game of the night between Dave n Pete for the 2nd spot and Dave ran out the 2-1 winner.

A super darts Season for all "Nomads" who now have to find a little plot to reside for the Winter.

566 scores of 100+ have been recorded in the Summer, with 131 of these going to Andy, including 3 x 180. Pete has done 101 with Dave 95 and Vassilis 65.

Highest out is Andy 113 and Negg follows with 103. Fastest darts has been Andy-15, Vassilis 17, Negg 19
and Dave 21. Not bad for all.

Tuesday night , at Armourada, is the "Round Robin" K/O where all players play all.

We have:-
Group 1. Andy (87%) - Vassilis (58%) Paul (Sidari) - (67%)
Group 2 . Dave (57%) Doug (41%) Stathis (Guest)
Group 3. Pete (54%) Neill (25%) Xrisanthos (15%)

Pick yer winner , guys!!

Negg

This night will be a cracker so all invited to support.

On behalf of our little NOMAD group of Summer Dart players can we say a big thanks to all who joined in.

We all hope that, by these weekly updates, it has helped all to put faces to names during your visits.

We also hope, that in our own little way, we have helped to promote Arillas and bought a little extra fun for guests ,plus extra custom for those Tavernas/Bars that took part and supplied awards.
(It's been great for all of us who get to play against new opponents)

Over the Summer, we have visited Armourada, Tria Adelphia, Rainbow, Three W's, Marvelous,Sunset Bar, Nickoletos plus Matts and Sea Monkeys (Sidari). All places have had 2 match nights.

We also organised Knock Outs for guests here at the time and many "Darting Arilliacs" now bring their darts with them.

It will be a quiet Winter and no league is planned, however I am now receiving e-mails from "Guests" who competed, this Summer, giving me their arrival dates for next Summer and asking to join in again.

Big thanks also goes to the "Jersey Boys" , Steve n John who gave us the "Jersey Challenge Shield" which Andy, Sea Monkeys, will proudly put on his shelf (But just for 12 months!)

Weather and power cuts permitting the Round Robin will still happen at Armourada on Tuesday.

Cheers
Negg

Good to hear from you Wayne and hoping you and yours are all well.

We had a small Winter mid-week league here but only 4 Teams. Very close with only 3 points between the first 3. We also had a weekend league of 501 singles.
(9 of us playing a Round Robin format, each player vs each other 3 times.)

When you are over we will organise something with the boys. Let me know dates when you ready.

Cheers to All
Neill

" THE ROVERS RETURN"

The "NOMADS" 2nd Summer League, started last Tuesday, at Nickoletos, with Andy(Sea Monkeys) Stewart hoping to retain the Jersey Challenge Shield,  that he won last year. Sponsored by the "Jersey Boys" , Steve n John, this has become a very sought after shield indeed.!!!

(Now with 9 players this is a League where every one plays every one 3 times and wander on to another venue each match night)

Andy starts well, with a 180, beating Roda Team mate, Alistair by 3-0. He then disposed of "Hippo Pete" , last Summer's third by 3-1. However , last Summer's runner up, Sidari Dave, held no fear and Andy left that match with a 3-1 against him.
But with a 14 dart leg and 24 merits scores he sits firmly on the top of the table with 6 points from 3 games and a 75% win average.
However, Sidari Dave is on his tail with 4 points and a game in hand.

Other matches saw Negg beat Billy C, but then missed doubles cost him against "Sidari Bill" and Alistair. "Hippo Pete's" 2nd match also sent Billy C packing.
Young Vasillis held "Kavaddades Doug" to a draw as Doug did to Alistair.

A total of 77 merit scores were recorded , including a 14 dart leg by Andy and a 99 out by Dougie. Negg brings up the rear with an 85 out and 21 darts.
Results as follows. Cheers Negg

ANDY  - Won 2 from 3
DAVE - Won 2 from 2
Bill B - Won 1 from 2
Negg - Won 1 from 3
Alistair Won 1 from 3 ( 1 draw )
Pete - won 1 from 2
Doug - Won 1 from 3 ( 2 draws)
Vasillis won 0 from 3 ( 2 Draws)
Billy C - won 0 from 2.

How do you get a 'draw'??

Post by: Eggy on May 08, 2015, 07:54:39 PM
Anne

We play 4 legs of 501 so the end result could be 3-1 , 3-0 , or 2-2.

The draws come into place should there be an eventual tie on wins at the end of the Summer.

Cheers

" Good 'Evans' , it's WAYNES WORLD all over again "

I thought I would re-vamp this as the lil 'ole bugger was back this year.............
Tuesday 12th September - A 4 Nations K/O , held at Tria Adelphia which bought in quality not quantity. Obviously the Welsh were there, taking the occassional leek, which I think were tactics!.  - The Scots were there , with David still trying to remove the padlock from his wallet , and the English appeared still worrying if a "no deal on Brexit" , can they still hit treble 20?? - Not a problem to me as couldn't hit it before!! Followed by the laid back Greek Team who say " I will hit the double avrio"  Twas a Welsh vs Scottish final and something which may happen in the next "Football Worl Cup" - Who Knows??
Yet another win for Wayne. ( Could say Waynes Win not Waynes World ) beating David 2-1 in the final.
Sorry , David , concentrate on the doubles and stop trying to find that padlock!!

A super evening which found me still awake at 11:30 pm. - Must have been a good night. A nice place to be and for darters, a darts area which is an out of the way place which bothers no one. - If I was still awake at 11:30 it must have been a good night. - Did I hit a winning double?? Did I give a "monkeys bum"

Cheers
Negg

After a super Tuesday evening at Tria, Rainbow were our hosts for a Friday afternoon binge. Good to see you guys again , plus Kev n Bev , although Bev chose a sunbed instead of darts. (Something I wished I had done!! , but after losing in the 2nd round my afternoon binge could continue in peace.) Kevin made it 1-1 against Wayne and then , so I am told , ran a lap of honour around Arillas. Rumour only , but he was so tired he missed out on that deciding leg. - Mo , Debbie and local lady Jean did enough to make others panic but lost on those pesky doubles. - Dimitris , Neighbour Makis and David (as in Mo n Dave) also did their bit , in between the binge as did the "Rainbow Boys" Panis and Yannis.
The final saw "Last Man Standing" being Wayne with his win against Makis. - Good final and pleasure to mark the board.
The World was indeed Waynes Oyster but it could have been his Prickly Pear!! - I will leave that one to Debbie to tell , once she is accepted as a new Arilliac.
(Obviously references will be needed , How many A levels , points on driving licence , the ability to hit double one with less that 27 darts)
This week will be a very quiet one for me , me-thinks. -
Cheers
Negg
