Congrats to the 2008 Pool and Darts Champions!

Thanks to those of you that turned up on Friday night to compete in the hotly anticipated ‘WCC 2008 Winner takes all Pool and darts competition’ ( and many thanks to Ali for her help with the delicious BBQ! which kept the ‘athletes’ nourished throughout the night!)

11 entrants/ athletes played in each sport (yes Westo, pool and darts are in fact sports played by sportsmen!) and the group matches were hotly contessed affairs with a best of 3 for each person, to decide the winner of each group.

The deciders (when the group stages ended in ties) required some innovative contests (nearest bullseye / white ball nearest the line) and the semi finals then became knockout affais, with some big darts and some amazing shots on the pool table. As time was called at the bar the semi fianls were still in progress and the pressure was building…..

Alex Hill (the rank outsider, and he knew it) took on Richard Gregory in the darts final, with Alex knowing his very limited darts skills would be put to the st in the 501 single frame decider. With Rich having the first ‘out’ and Hill trailing, it was a complete shock that Hill was able to hit the double 2 and win the £55 prize pot!

The Pool final was played between David Easter and Amit Johal, who had both been patiently waiting in the bar all evening whist all the various deciding matches were played out. Neither of them expected thier final to start at 11.20 pm! David put up a brave fight, but Amit showed calm and restrain, playing some lovely shots on the poor surface, to comfortably win the £55 prize

Here’s looking forward to the 2009 competition……!
