Soft Tip Darts (Played on an electronic auto-scoring dartboard)
Rapid City, SD USA
My team was playing a match at a local bar. This bar decided it wanted to have a "country" type atmosphere. Rather than putting saw dust on the floor, they put about three inches of hamster litter (pine shavings) on the floor. Since the shavings were new, it was attracting flys like crazy. I went up to throw the hat trick out, which as luck would have it, I hit the first two bulls, and as I pulled back to throw the last bull, a fly landed on the tip of my dart. Needless to say, I missed the bull.
