Starting boom of darts (The last in the 20th century)

Incidentally, True Blue's web site was started in April, 2000. However, all the articles were written in Japanese.

Expert Andy got the championships. (April - December, 2000)
The expert "Andy" participated in the prominent darts tournaments, and has won the prize by the most of tournaments. One of them was "Loosy Goosy Tournament in Roppongi" on May 21, 2000, which was called "Japanese championship."
The splendid history of Andy becomes a trophy and a certificate of merit, and is decorated with the counter of True Blue.

Starting darts in True Blue ... (The middle of the 20th century)

We begin to tread in "the historical world".

"Electronic darts" game machine was started to work. (around the April, 1999).

At last, "Electronic darts" came to True Blue. The motive of purchasing darts machine was recommendation from an acquaintance. Large activity of Andy was started at this moment.

A darts board was purchased and hard darts could be enjoyed in True Blue.(around the spring in 1997)

The darts board came to True Blue in a certain afternoon. This darts board seemed to be some prizes.

Of course, Andy was more absorbed than Yuuki-mama who brought darts board. The interest over the darts of Andy began certainly from these days.
