Triple Shooters Dart League
How it all started!
It all started back in 1989. I (Gary Nugent) had
signed up as a player in the Quaker City Yacht Club
dart league (which played American darts).
But what I did not know was that I had to be '21' to play.....even though it was a private club. But if
my father had signed up as well, they would then allow me to play. So we did just that. At the time I
was just 18.  After a few months I could tell that my father didnt really enjoy coming out every
tuesday night. But I also discovered that in only a few months of playing, not only did I enjoy it, but I
saw alot of improvement from when I initially started. A few friends of mine got together with me and
started shooting darts on monday nights. They seemed to enjoy it as much as I so we decided on
starting our own league. There were 8 of us that year: Gary Nugent (myself), Vince Lucera, Mike
Lucera, George Rose, Ray Lucera, Guy Ferraro, Steven(schmidty), & his friend Ken (i dont
remember their last names!!). We played a 12 week season and 'Triple Shooters Dart League' had
officially begun.
     At the end of the yacht clubs dart season, I told my father he didnt have to play next year because
I had started my own league (ironically, his team won the yacht club championship!).
The following year we had our problems with reliable people and the league folded after 8 weeks! But,
in 1992 we decide to give it one more try......and this time it worked. Now,  years later from that
1989 date.......the league is still going strong! The league bounced around to different members homes
where we played every saturday afternoon from Septemeber to May. 2000 was our first year in a
tavern.....Joe MaGees located at Torresdale Ave & Wellington St. in NE Philly. Then we moved and
grew again, this time to JJ's #1 Irish Pub located at Bleigh & Frankford Ave in Mayfair. We have been
there since 2002. 2005 saw the bar change owners and names. It is now called 'McNoodles' and we
are still there! Our game is 9 inning baseball with extra innings if needed.  We welcome other shooters
in the Philadelphia area to join next season. Come in some saturday between 4 & 9pm and experience
Triple Shooters Dart League.
