There are 56,000 sanctioned players with the National Dart Association – and over the last weekend, dozens of competitors from across the region (including Canada) came to Dickinson to toss their luck at 30 dart boards in the hopes of becoming the regional champions. Cash prizes and bragging rights were awarded (including to Randy Roesler of Mandan, who won the North Dakota Singles Level 1), and the winners will go on to compete in the national soft-tip championship in Las Vegas, which is the largest international soft-tip dart tournament in the world.
Kari Potrament of Perham, M.N. took her son Shane into Tradehome in Fargo, N.D. for new shoes, and left with a strong dose of North Dakota Nice. According to the story on Valley News Live, people usually don’t acknowledge 19-year old Shane, and so Kari was happily shocked when Tradehome employees directed their questions to him, and later gave him a nametag…and a possible job stocking shelves.
So many volunteers showed up for the first Richland-Wilkin Day of Caring that the United Way had to look for more projects to give them. Helpers cleaned yards, rebuilt steps, painted walls, assisted at the Red River Human Service Center, and even set up a Christmas tree. Wahpeton High School is hosting a second Day of Caring on October 24, 2018. If you have a project for the volunteers, call 701-642-2604.
