I must give a special mention to the McLaughglin family for their generosity which included drinks

for all four teams and a lovely spread put on also and also thank Hibs for their sponsorship and use

of their rooms and a donation of over 240 pounds for charity collected during the competition I must

say this was a great advertisement for darts and the Fonacab Central Dart League. Thanks to

everyone who made it possible..
