A Wee experience: I know it isn't spelled that way, but it sounds right.
(grin) Last weekend, I went to the Oklahoma State convention of the American
Council of the Blind. One of the activities was bowling with the Wee. Based
on the few minutes I spent, I have to say that it is not accessible if there is
no sighted assistance. Someone with eyesight did the aiming, and I had no way
of determining what pins remained standing after the first ball had been
thrown. The only control I had was the timing and speed of the shot. In a
group of players, it was interactive competitive fun, but, to me, someone else
was doing most of the important work.
Darts, anyone? On another note, the talking dart board was a blast! I did the
aiming and throwing. It was my skill that made me win or lose, and I knew what
was happening as each player, including myself, took their turn. The board is
the same size as those found in bars and other game rooms. I think it is an
official size, or standard size, or something like that.
If I get the money, and I have the space for either of these, I would
immediately buy a talking dart board.
Be positive! When it comes to being defeated, if you think you're finished,
you! are! finished!
