Started playing again - after a long time
Hi All, 

So after 30+ years I'm back shooting darts.  No idea what made me do a YT search for 'darts' - and then it all came back.  Wow - had no idea there was so much darts info on YT - not to mention on the web. 

Amazing how much its changed since the late 1980's - kind of dating myself there, but hey...

Started out with a cheapo dartboard from Walmart and plastic darts.  Progressed - and not a very good player - to buying a Taverner dartboard (not sure if that's the make/model) but I just found it in my garage. Hung it up (picture attached - I hope at least...) in my basement and found my darts.  And started chucking em.  Felt good.

Good story to hanging the dartboard - my basement isn't finished so the ceiling studs are visible - decided to make a frame and hung the dartboard up.  Kind of proud of myself - its sturdy and looks pretty good. 

Back in the day I played 'Around the World (1-20, no DB) and enjoyed it...never realized that I should keep track of what numbers I'm missing or hitting consistently.  Now I do though!  Love stats and evaluating.
   

Ty for a great, busy, informational board. Hope to participate in the future. 

Good shooting to all!

Welcome to the forum Stu. Really can appreciate how you did your board. I once had a board placed in my basement like that. You're using your old board, how about your old darts? did you replace them?
