Doubles darts fly

Good time had by all at tournament hosted by Comox Legion







Fourteen couples participated in the open doubles darts tournament hosted by the Comox Legion.

New faces were welcome from Powell River and Duncan. Playing a round robin format, the top eight duos went to the best-of-three games knockout rounds.

To decide the last two spots, six pairs had to play off to break their ties of six wins apiece. Emerging from this was Laurie and Margaret Bull, Terry Jackson and Sandi Kohlen, Bill and Brenda Durant, Art Forbes and Milly Davis, Stan and Nadeen Sierpina (PR), Don and Linda Pashleigh (PR), Norma and Hap Hanson, Don Parsons and Leslie Lamouroux.

Bill and Brenda prevailed over Art and Milly two games to one in the final. Don and Linda eked out Don and Leslie for third spot.

Men’s high score (140) and high out (151) went to Bill Durant. He also got a 180, as did Art.  Sandi Kohlen took the Ladies high out with a 79 while Patti Dennis got the ladies high score of 130.

An enjoyable day was had by all, a spokesperson said. Thanks go to Vicky Willington for once again putting together a great lunch and Doris Cameron for helping serve up the turkey soup.
