Sons Darren and Mick Grayson were also in attendance to present the coveted trophy, named in honour of their father Bob to the eventual winners on the day.

Beau kicked off by taking out the first two legs in 5 and 8 shot games before young Tim bounced back to take the next two legs with pegs of 32 and 40 to make it two all. Beau came back with a win in the 5th leg before Tim evened it up in the 6th with a tidy ‘5 Shotter’.
It was good old fashioned hard slog with the boys going leg for leg. At this point it was anyone’s game but it was to be Beau Anderson’s day, taking out the final two legs in five and four shot games.

Thanks to everyone that came along and supported the event and special thanks to the Belmont Sports & Recreation Club for their continued support and hospitality.

All in all a great day of darts to kick of Season 2017.

Foot Note:
An absolute delight to see former State Representative Jed Woodcock and the ‘Legend’ himself, Graham Hunt both back on the oche…….welcome back boys and good luck to you both.
