Dart enthusiasts from across the state converged on the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center Thursday for the 29th annual South Dakota Dart Tournament.
To participate in the tournament players had to compete in 30 league games within a six week period.
More than 3,000 players made the trip to Rapid City for the five day tournament where winners received a cash prize and trophy. Tournament director, Britt Bruner, said that while the money and trophy is good many of the players are competing for more. "They're playing for cash, but mostly they're playing for the trophy and bragging rights," said Bruner.
This is the largest 501 dart tournament in the world.
