Dart players gobble up prizes

Good time enjoyed by all at Comox Legion Turkey Shoot

No birds were harmed (but perhaps a few egos were!) on Dec. 1 when 34 players turned out for the Comox Legion’s Darts Turkey Shoot.

Seventeen pairs (mixed where possible) were matched up in a blind draw, double round robin format, for a competitive shoot. As with most tournaments, the best-of-three knockout round consisting of the top eight pairs followed the round robin.

Turkeys went in three directions: First place went to Shane Dennis (Courtenay) and Nadeen Sierpina (Powell River) over locals Ernie Linden and Sandi Kohlen. Third spot went to Dave Wilson (Campbell River) and Milly Davis (Courtenay) who edged out Doug Messer and Brenda Durant, both of Courtenay.

Turkeys went to first through third with fourth place receiving hams.

Ernie Linden won the Canterbury Ale clock donated by the Pacific Brewing Company. Thanks again for all that participated, and to Vicky for the great beef stew and sandwiches.

This is the last darts tournament at the Comox Legion until the new year, when the annual Ladies Open is held on Feb. 16.

Friday night drop-in darts will continue through the festive season.
