The New Zealand Darts Council was formed as an incorporated society on 23rd July 1957 and will be 60 years old this year. They had their first national championships which just involved men in 1958 and women began to play in 1960. In 1974 they were one of the 15 founding countries that formed the World Darts Federation. They have served the NZ dart players and world darts well.
Happy Birthday NZDC. Well done to all the officials who have served the NZ dart players through the years and done it for no more than the love of the game and love of the players. Well done to all the players who have been members of their associations, region teams, North and South Island teams, representative teams, NZ teams and competed. You all deserve a big pat on the back.
I would love to see the NZDC commission an historian to write their history. This coming anniversary would be a great time to consider it.
