DARTS: It has been a neck-and-neck bat­tle all year be­tween Pal­adins and Rug Rats for the sil­ver­ware and ti­tle of Biggen­den So­cial Dart Club’s cham­pion team.

To make it more in­ter­est­ing and com­pet­i­tive it had been a bat­tle be­tween the sib­lings and their par­ents’ team.

But it was Pal­adins who came out vic­tors, com­ing from sec­ond-last in 2017 to first.

The team, com­pris­ing Corey McIn­tyre, Corey Doyle, Karli Pressler and Jeff Bust, had scored 162 points, four points ahead of their ri­vals.

Team cap­tain Corey McIn­tyre said it was good to beat the par­ents.

“It was a bat­tle but we got there,” he said. “Ev­ery­one stepped up.” McIn­tyre said they all en­joyed their darts.

“Com­ing to darts puts a smile on your face plus you have fun,” he said.

Run­ners up were Rug Rats, com­pris­ing Leanne Dun­can, Mel See­hars, Ray McIn­tyre, Sam Wain and Ge­off Dun­can.

For TNT’s Mar­garet Cross, who was also named best club sup­porter, it wasn’t win­ning the wooden spoon she was ex­cited about but the fact her team had scored 48 points for the year.

“Most im­por­tantly we had fun,” she said.

TNT com­prised Ash­leigh Porter, Dyl­lann Car­ley, Mar­garet Cross, Diane Carey and Robert Kunde.

Over­all re­sults: Pal­adins 162, Rug Rats 158, The A Team 121, All Sorts 117, Out­siders 114, TNT 48.

Sin­gles cham­pi­ons were Leanne Dun­can and Corey Doyle. Doyle also teamed with his mother Mel See­hars to beat father/son duo of Ray and Corey McIn­tyre for the pairs ti­tle.

Other re­sults: high­est peg out, Ray McIn­tyre 145 and Co­ral Seng­stock 120; high­est score , Ray McIn­tyre 180 and Pam Rekasi 146; most tons, Jeff Bust 41 and Mel Shee­hars 32; most peg outs Jeff Bust 98 and Karli Pressler.

Neville Schon­rock was taken by sur­prise when asked to cut the club’s 30th an­niver­sary cake.

The orig­i­nal mem­ber who started play­ing with the Out­siders said he still en­joyed play­ing.

“To­day there are a lot more of the younger gen­er­a­tion play­ing.”

Out­go­ing pres­i­dent Sam Wain wished the new com­mit­tee all the best.

“I hope the club keeps go­ing strong,” she said.

The new com­mit­tee elected at the an­nual meet­ing held ahead of pre­sen­ta­tions is cap­tain Ash­leigh Porter, pres­i­dent Leann Dun­can, sec­re­tary Mel See­hars, vice-pres­i­dent Mar­garet Cross and trea­surer Dyl­lann Car­ley.

Darts re­turns on Thurs­day, Fe­bru­ary 7.
