Comox Legion Men’s Open Darts Shoot a success

 

 

 

Forty players from various Island communities enjoyed a full day of darts March 21 at the annual Comox Legion Men’s Open Darts Shoot.

Opening with the doubles event, the 20 pairs played a one-game round robin. The top 16 advanced to the best-of-three knockout round. Winning this event was the duo of Mike Brenton and Stu Gourley of Nanaimo, second spot went to Roy White and Ross Doakes of Campbell River. Splitting the third and fouth spot pot were Glen Barret and Scott Hackey (Nanaimo) with Rick and Len Yartau (Campbell River).

In the singles event, 32 players participated: four sheets of eight played a two-game round robin, with the top four from each sheet advancing to the best-of-three knockout round.

First spot went to Mike Brenton who beat out Barry Davies (Nanaimo). Again third and fourth agreed on splitting the spot, however Glen Barret and Ken Hayes (Parksville) played one game for bragging rights, which went to Barret.

High out went to Doug Meldrum (Duncan) with a 153. High scores went to Barry Davies and Bill Durant with 177. Honourable mention to Lance Cunningham whose 174 held up basically until the final games.

Many players hit 180, congrats to them. One was Nathan from Campbell River with his first 180.

Many thanks to all that participated, to the crew for setting up the boards and hall and also bar staff and food preppers.

Next up is the Comox Legion’s ninth annual Memorial Darts Shoot on Saturday, April 18. This is for teams of four, male, female or coed; entry fee is $40 per team.
