Let’s play darts! The Eastbourne Open is almost upon us.
I’ve dusted down the barrels and even found 3 matching flights. Ok, my board looks like it came free with 2 litres of Esso oil back in 1987 (it did) but suddenly I feel I could be the new Phil The Power. The Ginger Magician perhaps? Frankly, Eric Bristow, aka The Crafty Cockney, was always a boyhood hero and somehow seemed to live the dream a bit more. Ahh, those epic battles with Jockey Wilson….
The closing date for entries for this year’s Eastbourne Darts Open is Monday 11th January so be quick if you fancy pulling a tight polyester top over the beer belly and taking on the big boys.
Though be warned: ‘No jeans, trainers, track suits to be worn on stage’. Poetic.
Somehow I feel I’ll be forced to fall back on vicarious enjoyment yet again (I never did get spotted by acting agents during Brighton Rock), and maybe I’ll get some high-rolling players staying here – the Winter Gardens, the home of darts for the weekend – is just 2 minutes down the road so who knows?
If you fancy staying here at The Guesthouse East, to either rack up a few legs with me or use as a base for your assault on the title click here for availability or ring on 01323 722774.
