    Posted on behalf of a regular attendee of the event.

    Dee's shoot at the A&L (60th and NE Glisan) in Portland every Friday night has been really fun and well-attended since she made changes a couple of months ago.

    We've been getting an excellent turn out of regulars and complete strangers who have a mix of skills from expert to enthusiastic. Last week we had 11 teams and the week before that, 9. Plus, we've been visited by some really skilled out-of-towners lately who have often finished in the money.

    Because the A&L (60th and NE Glisan) chips in money according to headcount the payouts to winning teams have been pretty nice. Instead of the typical additional $2 per person, this week, May 15th, Angelo will be adding $5 per person to the payout.

    It costs $7.00 per head to play and the format is a blind draw. Plan on starting at 8:00 sharp so you need to sign up by 7:50 p.m. The beer is well-priced and the service is excellent. If you attend we promise to do our best to make you feel at home and provide you with a fun night of darts.

    These have been a lot of fun the past few months that I've made it. Would love to see even more people out there regularly!! =)

    I second Isaac's post here. I was absent for about three months and recently started going back again. I plan on doing so regularly but more players are always needed.

    I have to agree with Isaac and SWA as well. I recently moved back to Portland and started going to the Friday night blind draw about 6 weeks ago. I have had a blast everytime.

    It will be great to see all of you there again and I too hope that the turnout keeps getting bigger and bigger.

    Thanks Dee!

    I was hoping that we would have more play after awards night.
    I guess I am one of the few true Dart Whores. Pretty much play anytime anyplace. Luck has it that my women enjoys palying as well. :lol:

    Should be another good night at the A&L as the friday before Thomas' Saturday events seem to draw a decent turnout.

    Looking forward to it and hopefully see you guys there!

    Christina and myself will be having a little get together before the Friday night shoot. We are going to go over the implementing of a Singles Summer League. We will be meeting about 6:00pm.
    If any one wants to show ,have any ideas, whatever you are welcome.
    We are trying to have something to present at tomorrows singles shoot.

    I attended again the 1st time after a couple of month and I have to say that it was really nice. I met and played some people I didn't play before. 10 Doubles was as well pretty good. Most likely I will show up more often again.

    Well, don't you think more people will be around and interested in darts on, I don't know... Dart Night? Everyone is in the mood and has the time when it is their regular night.

    That being said, I have been MIA from these forever - largely because I am broke, but also due to time and energy constraints. I really want to try to go tomorrow... any people wanna join me? Make it a big, mid-season showing at the draw? :D
