DARTS: The Mundubbera Darts As­so­ci­a­tion has seen player skills im­prove this sea­son with ris­ing tal­ent Al Volmer­hause “on fire” and pro­duc­ing some un­beat­able re­sults.

Mundubbera Darts As­so­ci­a­tion pres­i­dent Be­van Holzheimer said it had been a steady sea­son and touched upon the need for more mem­bers.

“We’ve seen some good num­bers this sea­son, how­ever it would be great if we had more mem­bers play darts,” Holzheimer said.

“Two teams last week had to have a bye, which was dis­ap­point­ing, so we’re call­ing those in­ter­ested in play­ing the game to come along to darts nights and see how the night goes.”

Darts com­mences ev­ery Wed­nes­day night at 7pm at the Mundubbera Show­grounds.

Through­out the year, the darts as­so­ci­a­tion hosts so­cial nights, which is a great way of play­ing darts in a so­cial at­mos­phere.

Holzheimer said the aim of darts was not just about win­ning but get­ting out and play­ing the game.

“We’ve got a cou­ple of peo­ple from Gayn­dah and Biggen­den who come along and play,” Holzheimer said.

“Ev­ery­one is wel­come to at­tend and have a game, it’s a lot of fun and it doesn’t mat­ter if you win or lose.”

Mundubbera Darts has six teams con­sist­ing of Sharp Shoot­ers, Bulls­eye Ban­dits, Drifters, Frogs Hol­lows, RF2’s and Don’t Knows.

Holzheimer is no stranger to darts and has been the pres­i­dent for quite a few years. He said he just loves the game.

“It’s a great game to play, it takes a lot of fo­cus but it’s com­pletely worth it,” Holzheimer said.

“We play both so­cial and com­pe­ti­tion.”

Mundubbera Darts takes place ev­ery Wed­nes­day nights from 7pm at the Mundubbera Show­grounds and ev­ery­one is wel­come.
