"The main fun part of this day is a non-thrower being paired with a thrower to even the odds. So folks even if you've never thrown darts or haven't thrown in a long time you can partake in this great fundraising tournament! It is truly an entertaining day with hot food, sambo's, raffle and music on the day and night," say the organisers.
