Darts

The VRI Darts Club does not have facilities of its own but plays in the Bi-Annual ANZRI Darts Carnival, that rotates around Australia and New Zealand every 2 years.  

VRI Darts History

Gary Power - President

The ANZRI darts carnival started off in 1992 when Queensland (QRI) invited other states to participate in Brisbane for a darts carnival. Before then the game was only played between NSW and QLD. 

An advertisement was placed by the VRI early in 1992 to all members inviting players who would like to go, around 16 members put their interest forward and they made their way to Brisbane. Some members played darts at various leagues around Melbourne, some members had never thrown a dart in their life but they were all keen to spend two weeks in Brisbane and meet new friends.

Some to this day only participate in the bi-annual carnival, back then the members who played darts never got  around to forming a darts club as such, it has been a team from Victoria who are members to represent their state institute, eligibility was railways employees first follow by retired personal then other members on the institute as per the constitution and by-laws.

We always encourage members to come and play Darts with us, and look forward to increasing our members. For more information on the VRI Darts Club, please contact the VRI office on vri@vri.org.au Gary Power on 0407 355 824

Be with like minded people I'd never played bowls before but I'm so happy I gave it a go. I've met so many new people and had a lot of laughs along the way - Pam Graham VRI Member
