Point Match 

Just when dart fans thought they were out, they're pulled back in.

Five nights a week, hundreds of local darts enthusiasts meet on the Tournament Trail for matches in games of Cricket and 501. There's also Cork's Choice, in which the player who hits closest to the bull's-eye in a two-darter shootout chooses the next game. "It's a sport that's steeped in tradition, because it's a tavern sport," says Scott Madis, director of the Cleveland Darter Club. "People play darts more than ever before."

Founded in 1969, the club brags of being the second-oldest of its kind in North America, with a 17,000-member roster. "Once you become a member, it's kinda like the Mafia," says Madis. "You're in forever." Games start at 8 p.m. at Mister B's, 6887 West 130th Street in Parma Heights. Fee is $5. Visit — By Cris Glaser
