Zeb Boslem, Mike Boslem and Melissa Sinnott are looking forward to the Echuca Moama Darts Association Open this weekend.
The betting ring at Echuca Harness Racing Club has probably seen its fair share of darts, but it is unlikely to have experienced so many being whirred about at such speed as it will this weekend.
Echuca-Moama Darts Association will hold its first open tournament since 2002 and president Mike Boslem is hoping 100 to 150 competitors from across Australia will attend the event.
Fifteen boards will be set up for competitors, with the action set to start from about 9.30am Saturday and Sunday.
Boasting prizemoney of $5000, a stellar list of those vying for the big prizes is expected, with some competitors coming from Newcastle, Mt Gambier and the Northern Territory.
Boslem hopes to make the tournament an annual event and said the public was welcome to attend, with food and drinks available.
Among the district hopes are Mike’s son Zeb and Melissa Sinnott, who will be representing Victoria for the fifth year in a row at the national championships in Adelaide in July.
