16 – We Get Ready, Aim and Fire



This episode we speak with a company who takes shelter-in-place to a whole ‘nother level. Next, we sharpen our tips and aim for the bull. What? Oh, darts! Finally, “fire in the hole!” Well, fire in our bellies while we keep a fire extinguisher on hand during our BeerDome competition. That, and our usual craic on this episode of Life in 16 oz.

One of many things Richard Wade, president of the Pacific Darts Association, tells us about is how the Southern California-based PDA has incorporated a distance league that allows players to see each other’s boards, communicate during competition, and to keep score. The method lets dart enthusiasts compete from further away AND allows for spectators. (Courtesy photo/Richard Wade)
