A lakecity darts player is continuing his bid for a bull’s-eye at the National Youth Dart Championships.

Dustin Sarnowski, along with Darts BC coach Wayne O’Neil, are hoping to travel to St. John’s, Nfld. from May 15-19 for nationals, after Sarnowski finished first in the junior boys division at the B.C. Youth Provincial Dart Championships in April.

To help cover the cost of the trip the duo will host a pair of fundraising events this weekend.

The first, on Saturday, May 3 at Save On Foods, is a youth barbecue.

O’Neil said they’ll have hot dogs, balloons and a jelly bean guessing game.

Additionally a special guest, Bryce Book — the eighth ranked darts player in the country and 2012 provincial men’s champion — is travelling from Kamloops to show his support to Sarnowski and O’Neil.

“We’ll be chatting with people and explaining a bit about darts and things like that,” O’Neil said.

Sunday, May 4, the trio will be at the Overlander Pub at the Ramada Inn putting on a darts exhibition for anyone interested.

“Bryce will be taking on all challengers who donate $5 to our youth darts B.C. fund,” O’Neil said.

“He’s taking time off work to come up here so that’s pretty cool for him to do this.

“He’s a past provincial youth champion himself so he wants to help out the youth cause.”
