Dart players put to the test

Long day for Comox Valley players who went to Powell River for competition




Stamina was the overall winner at the recent Powell River Cup darts challenge.

The locals started out on the 6:30 a.m. ferry from Little River. Six ladies and six men participated from the Valley. The cup would be presented to the town accumulating the highest average in points.

The locals were well out numbered, and fell short of the points, Powell River held on to their trophy, out pointing the Comox Valley 59-36. The Valley players however placed well: the ladies singles winner was Norma Hanson with Brenda Durant and Joanne Penny placing third (actually third and fourth but so considered tied). Brenda and Norma placed third in the doubles.

On the men’s side of things, none other than local Ernie (Mr. 19) Linden took the first spot in the singles, Hap Hanson and Art Forbes placed third. In the doubles event Don Parsons and Jamie Deith placed third.

It was an enjoyable event. Convener Stan Sierpina said that the 2014 event would be run over two days to ease the load. Yes, a lot of darts were squeezed into a one-day event. Valley players were happy to get home around 10 p.m.

In other news, the Comox Legion is hosting a trivia night Friday, Jan. 18 at 7 p.m. in the lounge. Teams of five at a cost of $5 per player with lots of prizes. Call Rod at 250-339-5829.
