Darts Players Regroup After Festive Break

Catterline Darts PlayersThere was a great turn out at Wednesday's darts night with a dozen players competing for points, some showing off their Christmas pressies. Only a few stalwarts still use the kindly donated pub darts, the majority now preferring to throw their own arrows. Two matches of Aussie style Round the Clock were contested followed by an impromptu game of Shanghai which Robert won by leaving his best darts to last and cleaning up the cash.

More Balls of Fire

Catterline Trebuchet throwing a fireball. Boxing Day 2006. Thanks to everyone who sent pictures of the trebuchet in action on Boxing Day. I've uploaded the best ones to the gallery.
Thanks also to everyone who helped out - Pete and Paul for moving and rigging it up, Chris for manning the fire extinguisher, Robert for the loan of the fire extinguisher (sorry we had to use it - we accidentally set fire to the treb' a little bit), and Brendan for lighting the fireballs.
