We have a series of Dart Articles that we've added over time. You'll find games similar to American darts, and dart throwing advice.
We also have a section on Vintage Darts with pictures of darts and boards from days long gone by.
At the 32nd Annual State Dart Tournament of Pennsylvania, a new tradition began. The tournament was into it's fourth decade, and a history of the sport had been built. And now, it was time to remember those who had dedicated themselves to the sport, shaping it into the game we know today.
A "Wall of Fame" was created, and named in honor of the man who was at the helm of the PA State Dart Tournament at the beginning - Michael "Shakes" Lozniak.
