At the 32nd Annual State Dart Tournament of Pennsylvania, a new tradition began. The tournament was into it’s fourth decade, and a history of the sport had been built. And now, it was time to remember those who had dedicated themselves to the sport, shaping it into the game we know today.
A “Wall of Fame” was created, and named in honor of the man who was at the helm of the PA State Dart Tournament at the beginning – Michael “Shakes” Lozniak.
