Board Care - Wetting?
Idle chit chat during league play and one of the older players said he lightly sprays his board with water every so often to keep it in tip top shape.  Said it keeps the fibers moist and makes them last longer.  Any truth to this?  My understanding was not to do this and just rotate frequently.

A damp board will soon become a mouldy board so I agree, no spray just rotate now and then.

Unless your in an extremely arid climate but only then it would want a very fine misting to prevent it drying out completely, I think some of the folks in Texas do it in the summer but it is something I would not recommend doing too much even so Guests cannot see images in the messages.

Boards thrive in consistent environments. Wetting them makes them swell, then they contract when they dry. This repeated process causes bulging and heaving.

So as said above, No.

Damping a dartboard is a bit like telling the Mrs she is gaining weight. Don't do it EVER!

I reckon there's no problem at all in giving yer board a regular christening especially in flat beer or cider, that way it always smells nice...(just like entering a pub, early on a Sunday morning Guests cannot see images in the messages.

Wikipedia reckons that "waterboarding violates Common Article 3 of the Geneva Conventions" so that's probably another reason not to do it.
