Como Legion Turkey Dart Shoot big success

Twenty-eight players turned out on Nov. 29 for the annual event

The 2014 Comox Legion’s Turkey Dart Shoot was a resounding success when 28 players turned out on Saturday, Nov. 29 for the annual event. (Guaranteed no birds were harmed, just some egos).

Entrants played a full round robin event of 13 games, with the top eight pairs advancing to the knockout rounds where they played the best-of-three games.

As the prizes were the same for first, second and third spot, only the third and fourth place pair played one game to determine who would get a turkey or a ham.

First and second place played a game for bragging rights, and local player Bill Durant and Campbell River’s Nicole Sumner took first place over Ken Hayes and Janet Litchfield.

Leslie Lamouroux and Larry Fuller (Parksville) placed third while Marj Arnold and Shane Dennis came fourth.

Top spot for the ladies high score was quite competitive. Starting with a score of 114 by Marj (Bullseye) Arnold, the eventual winner was Shirley Ewert of Parksville with a 147.

The ladies high out was tied by Nicole Sumner and Marj Arnold both with a 40 out.

In the men’s high score three players recorded 140s: Dwayne Bennett, Derek Arnold and Ken Hayes (with five 140’s). High out went to Shane Dennis with a 104 out, Shane also recorded a perfect score of 180.
