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.
