Great day of darts for Invictus event #3

1st place Winner: Dale LaFrance

2nd place Winner: Robert Stewart

Both advance to the finals in Syracuse in December!!

Great shooting everyone!

Rule of the week 9-19-2016

Some basic rules

Any dart that leaves either of the player’s hands and touches any part of the playing area beyond the hockey (i.e., between the hockey and the dartboard) is considered thrown.

Darts which touch the floor behind or land straddling the hockey are considered dropped and may be picked up and thrown during that player’s turn (a dart bouncing off or falling out of the dartboard cannot be rethrown).

 Any dart that bounces back off the board, backer, wall, chalker, or any anything beyond the hockey cannot be caught and rethrown.

Rule of the week 9-12-2016

Scoring the Throw

To score, a dart must remain in the dartboard for 5 seconds after the player's last dart has been thrown.

The thrower must verify the score with the chalker before removing their darts from the dartboard. If any darts are removed and a disagreement arises as to score, the chalker's decision must stand.

 Darts may not be touched by anyone (including the chalker) prior to the chalker's decision as to score.
