DARTS

DartsA popular and classic non shooting activity held at FSC is Darts!

Darts – is a form of throwing game in which small missiles or darts originally made from cut down arrows or crossbow bolts, thrown at a circular target or dartboard fixed to a wall 8’ away. Though various boards and rules have been used in the past, the term “darts” usually now refers to a standardized game involving a specific board design and set of rules. As well as being a professional competitive sport, darts is a traditional pub game, commonly played in the United Kingdom.

The dartboard is sectioned in 20 scoring sections, with a smaller triple point sub section in the middle and a smaller double scoring section on the outer rim. The central circle is divided into a green outer ring worth 25 points (known as “outer”, “outer bull”, or “iris”) and a red or black inner circle (usually known as “bull”, “inner bull” or “double bull”), worth 50 points. The term “bulls-eye” can mean either the whole central part of the board or just the inner red/black section. Many scoring variations in darts exist.
