A long day of darts at Comox Legion’s men’s open tournament

Twenty-five doubles entered the Comox Legion’s Men’s Open darts tournament on Saturday, March  19.

Players from Chemainus, Nanaimo, Campbell River, and Powell River joined the locals for a long day of darts.

Split into two sheets, (12/13) playing a one-game modified round robin, the top eight from each sheet went onto a best-of-three knockout.

In the best-of-five final, Glen Barret and Scott Hatchey (Nanaimo) sailed through without a loss to the final for the win over Roy White and Ken Binnersley (Campbell River).

Third spot went to Richard Gravelle and Steve Benson (Nanaimo) while Mike Benton and Ron Dixon (Nanaimo) placed fourth.

In the singles event, split into four sheets playing a two-game round robin, the top four from each sheet advanced to the knockout round.

After a lengthy best-of-three knockout round, the eventual winner was Ken Binnersley over Mike White, both form Campbell River. Third spot went to Roy (Doug) White also from Campbell River, while Shane Dennis Courtenay took fourth place.

An amazing day of competitive darts started at 10 a.m. and finished just after 8 p.m.

Many who played will meet up again on April 1-3 as the Comox Legion hosts the BC/Yukon Provincial Darts Championships.

Many thanks to Vicky for her famous chili and to those that helped set up the hall, job well done all.
