The 29th annual South Dakota State Dart Tournament kicked off Thursday at the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center.

Tournament director Britt Bruner says the tournament sees a variety of skill levels, drawing in players who might only play at their local bar's Wednesday night league all the way to the extremely talented shooter.

"South Dakota has world-class dart throwers," he said during a phone interview.

In addition to trying for their own cash prize, tournament participants are also raising money for Make-a-Wish South Dakota. Over the last 14 years, tournament-goers have raised over $315,000, with $31,000 raised at last year's tournament.

The tournament has drawn about 3,000 players and runs through Sunday.

    I'm really sure walking past a few smokers and a few empty beer cans scarred your daughter for life.

    My 9 year old daughter and I had the pleasure of walking through their emphysema cloud and empty Bud Light can wasteland (aka entrance to the civic center) on her way to rehearse for the 4th grade school district orchestra concert. Thanks a lot for taking another piece of her innocent childhood away, Rapid City, with your best and brightest. Typical.
