The Big Reunion
By John Lowe, Oct 18 2014 02:26PM
On the 27th June 2015 Eric Bristow, Keith Deller, Peter Manley and myself will by playing at the Norwich City Football Club in aid of the Norwich Community Foundation Charity, it will be a great night, VIP and standard tickets available from the club now. For me it will be a reunion with friends made over many years, I first visited Norwich in the late 70's and I have to say if ever I was to move from my beloved Chesterfield, Norwich would have been my first choice, not because they have a church for every day of the year and just as many pubs, but because I made friends that became everlasting friends, I could tell many stories about our many exhibition nights they all had something to remember and it wasn't always the darts, but most notable was on the 10th October 1984, I had been in Norwich for a week playing exhibitions around the area, I was staying with Eddy Harvey at his Stacey Hotel, we had been invited by one of the prominent night club owners to attend the opening of his new club, I said yes if we could leave no later than midnight, all was ageed but as the saying goes all well laid plans !!!!! we finished up back at Eddy's at around 4am, I had to be up early to get to Slough for the start of the World Masters that night, I had a couple of hours sleep and left, reminding Eddy if I lost it was his fault for keeping me out late, once at Slough I had a quick nap and headed off for the venue, the Fulcrum Centre, needless to say the next three days where the most memorable of my career, in fact my life, after winning on the Friday night I went on to play Keith Deller on the Saturday afternoon and record the first 9 dart game on TV, it did not stop there I beat Bob anderson in the semi-final and Cliff Lazarenko in the final on Sunday, so what turned out to be a very unexpected, not much chance tournament, became the talking point of world darts and sport in general, of course Eddy rang me to say if it wasn't for him and his recreational event I wouldn't have been so relaxed.
The 27th June 2015 will have a great line up, but for me it will be the Norwich Big Reunion, see you there my friends.
