Bull's Eye News- Feature: Quebec's Jerry Hull (751 words)
Although Jerry has heard about the youth program in Quebec, he was never able to participate as he lives in a smaller area away from the big city where the youth darts are offered.
As usual, I asked Jerry whether, with the means that are available at this time, whether there is something more that could be done in Canada to improve the level of darts.
Jerry didn’t know how it could be done but he felt that there is a need to make more people aware of the sport of darts and entice new players.
