How Blueberry Hill Was Conned Into Getting Its First Dart Board

first dart board in 1973One night in 1972 a customer named Ed Shafer was drinking a beer and asked Joe, our owner, if he had a dart board. Joe said no. Ed asked, “Want to borrow mine?” Joe said, “No, but thanks.” The next day a guy came in, ordered a beer, and asked Joe if he had a dart board. Joe said no and the man finished his beer and left.

Then another guy came in and asked Joe if he had a dart board. He said no and the man left without even ordering a beer. Several more people came in and the same thing happened. One night Ed said to Joe, “The offer to borrow my dart board still stands. Are you interested?” Joe immediately said, “Yes!” and put the dart board up on the wall.

It turns out Ed put all those people up to it and that’s how we were tricked into getting our first dart board. You can see it in the photo from 1973. Now, over 40 years later, we have a whole Dart Room, dart leagues, and a famous dart tournament!
