INNER CITY DARTS ASSOCIATION
Jim is an 80 year old man who has been the heart and sole of our little dart club for over twenty years. He has had many roles on our committee from President to Vice President and General Committee, he has also been our devoted cook for the past 17 years. He has never missed a beat, even when he was in hospital fighting to keep his foot and leg, his mind was never far from the club, always asking his wife..”Has this been done..has that been done, has the shopping for the kitchen been done”. Jim has never missed cooking his lovely food for all the dart players that have had to play rep games at our club, often being the firs one to arrive at 6 am to cook his famous bacon and egg rolls, and most of the time he is always the last one to leave after all the cleaning and setting up for the next day is done. Jim has also been the voice of reason when a player doubts what they are capable of, he simply tells you that darts is a game to be enjoyed, so simply enjoy it and have fun!!!!!! Jim has been and avid fund raiser, walking around every fixture night selling our raffle tickets and lucky numbers, attending our sausage sizzles and helping organise our various drives.
Jim has more get up and go than someone half his age and we are so blessed to have this great man at our club, and when the time comes that his is no longer able to do what he does , I think we are going to find it very hard to find someone to replace him that can do half of what Jim can do.
