Even though the two Fall Dart Seasons are underway – the Tuesday night in house sand the Sunday afternoon traveling leagues – there was still one piece of unfinished business to report from last season.
We still had to hand out the Nate Dobeck Award. It goes to the shooter with the highest average from Dorko’s or the Natalie Leagues. It is awarded in honor of the late Nate Dobeck, who was a great dart shooter, and an even better person.
Congratulations goes to Joe Swatski – his efforts in the Shenandoah Men’s Sunday League put him on top of the averages board and earned him the First Nate Dobeck Award! Great shooting Joe!
Yeah, I’m about a week late, but WOW – what a party!
Here are the picts I was able to capture before things got just too hectic to be running around pointing a phone at people!

The Dorko’s Sunday Dart Team goes back out on the road tomorrow to visit take on the Legion, but last Sunday we had what seems like a rare Home match when the Columbia Fire Company came to town.
Kirk Wimble was back in the Dorko’s line up, and boy did he bring it! He posted Big Dog style scores for the day, leading all shooters in every game with a 45 – 52 – 49 series. That’s a 48.6 average for the day!
Despite his efforts, Dorko’s dropped the opening game 186 – 182. Jerry Shatalsky led the visitors with a 43.
In Game Two came back with a 189 – 179 victory, sending the match in the bully game.
There, both teams posted their best scores of the day. Mark Purcell led the Columbia with a 41, and Larry Franz chipped in with a 37. Kirk posted his 49, and both George Misunis Jr and Joe Remash added 36 games, giving Dorko’s enough points to walk away with a 193 – 191 victory! What a game, and what a match!
With the win, our guys evened up their record at 3 – 3!
Dorko’s has been on the road on Sunday afternoons for the past three weeks. This past weekend we found the team traveling to Shenandoah Heights.
In the first game of the match, the Heights took a 182 – 179 win with Ed Dormer posting a 40 for the high score of the game. Bob Rhoades from SH was close behind leading his team with a 39.
After dropping the opening game, Dorko’s came back in the second with a 193 – 178 victory. This time Curtis Susnoski led shooters with a 42. Joe Remash and Ryan Sands threw 39 games.
The final game of the match saw both teams shoot their high games for the day. The balance tipped in favor of the Heights 198 – 194. George Misunas Jr chipped in with high game of the day – a 46 for the Dorko’s squad. That wasn’t enough though, and the team from Shendandoah Heights took the match!
Not only did they show strong skills on the dartboard, they displayed warm hospitality in hosting the match!
Next week, the dart action returns to the Corner of Fourth and Poplar when the Columbia Fire Company comes to town!
Darts are now in the air on Tuesday nights, and life is just plain better. This past Tuesday everyone seemed to bring their best.
Chris Schu averaged over a43 for the evening, including a high game of 48.
Doug continued to keep his league average for the Fall Session over a 40. It’s holding at 42 right now.
John Finlan was the first non-captain to land a 40 game.
Cooter stretched out and was able to reach into the 30′s, firing a 31.
Randy K and Tony Ford each hit 40+ games, making it 5 different shooters with 40+ offerings on the night!
The standings after two weeks are . . .
Team Troutman 5 – 1
Team Ford 3 - 3

the season started this past weekend with a visit from Brandonville!
things got moving a little late, but both teams had a full line up of shooters. in the first match tony ford led off with a blackout, and ed dormer posted a “1″ in the first inning. Both of them would turn around their games and finish tied for the team lead with 36 games. Joe Remash and Curt Susnoski followed closely with 35 games.
in the end, Dorko’s took the first game 194 – 130. Brandon Conti shot hammer for Brandonville and posted their team’s best score with a solid 30 game.
The second game of the match was quite like the first. Curtis Susnoski and Joe Remash shard the same scores again, this time putting up 37 games for a very solid Sunday of shooting. Joey Aiello saw his first Sunday action, and Tony Ford posted the high game of the day with a 40. He also led the team in blackouts with two on the afternoon. There were no White Horses to report.
Game two ended with Dorko’s posting a 195 – 127 victory.
next week the Red Zone come to visit us in MCA. They are new to the league, so it’ll be their first time here! Action starts at 3pm.
It’s that time of year again! Footballs are flying around from Friday through Monday, Octoberfests are hitting the shelves, and darts will be filling the air!
