1999-2022: This website has recorded the history of Dartes for 23 years - you're welcome to explore.

Today it enters archive mode (http://archive.dartes.co.uk). The club has chosen a new Team Unify website (link to follow soon) and so now is the time I hand over to the next generation. This site will remain as an historical reference for as long as I can continue to host it in the hope that it's of interest to someone. Club Records, Medal Tables, and the like were accurate upto the end of August 2022 but will not be maintained here beyond that.

Unfortunately I've archived this earlier than expected as a lot of changes are being made to schedules and training fees, etc which leave this site incorrect.
