Brunswick Valley Darts Club is looking for new members. They play every Wednesday night at the Mullumbimby Services Club, at 7.30pm.

Currently they are a social club and run an in-house competition. Everyone over the age of 18 is welcome, and beginners can have coaching from the existing players.

The club offers a bus service to the surrounding areas, so transport need not be a problem. Supper is also provided. They have a cash incentive each week, which jackpots if there is no winner.

The club holds three charity days each year, competing with Tweed Valley Darts Club and Iluka. There is also an annual challenge match with the darts club at Sherwood in Queensland. These events are a lot of fun and give players the opportunity to meet other like-minded people and raise money for local charities.

‘We have a lot of fun,’ says Diane Paynter. ‘As we are a social club, there is no pressure to be an expert player.’

The cost each week is just $5. Enquiries can be made at the Mullum Services Club.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”

Echonetdaily is made possible by the support of all of our advertisers and is brought to you by this week's sponsors Vast Furniture & Homewares Ballina and Falls Festival Byron Bay.
