Nasu Darts Tourney

Last weekend Heather and I joined some friends and traveled to Nasushiobara to play in a organized dart tournament. A first for us. It was actually a large event with about 450 participants.
Heather and I got spanked out in 6 games of 501 and cricket. The other members of our group fared a little better at least making it to the round-robin event before being put out. As this is a beer drinking event we still had a great time and met a lot of interesting individuals. We plan to hit another event before we depart Japan, and hopefully our dart game will actually show up along with us.

My wife's cousin who lives in Otawara is into darts and I believe has participated in darts tournaments. I wonder if he was there? Do you recall seeing a tall Japanese guy over 6 feet with a big head?

Actually there were a lot of big japanese guys there. And yes a few big bald ones. They tend to stand out in the crowd. The next one we go to is going to be in Mid April at the Sapporo Beer Garden in Nasu. If you guys have contact with him, tell him to give us a shout if he sees us. It a pretty big party and we met a lot of people as everyone is pretty freindly.
