Organizers assure everyone that no birds (but maybe one or two egos) were harmed at the Comox Legion’s Turkey Dart Shoot on Saturday, Dec. 3.

Twenty-six players participated. It was a boisterous turnout which made this a fun event, and all were in good spirit(s). Playing a two-game full round robin format kept the players busy.

Proving that the power of media works, two players, one from Oyster River and the other from Merville, participated in their first tournament after hearing the ad on Jet FM. Although not in the winners circle, George and Chris held their own and we hope to see them both at future events.

With the top eight pairs advancing to the knockout round, (in order) Laurie Bull/Elaine Hillier, Ernie Linden/Sandi Kohlen, Art Forbes/Leslie Lamouroux, John Broccolo/Jamie Elliot, David Merkley/Barb Godin, Darrell Hillier/Carol Merkley, John Chequis/Ginny Green and Dave Willington/Jamie Dith making up the top eight.

Only one round of the knockout was required as there were six turkeys and two hams up for grabs by the top four pairs (listed in order above).

Men’s high out went to John Chequis with 109, Ladies’ high out was Carol Merkley with 90. Men’s high score was played off by seven players with 140; victorious was Bud Englund. The Ladies’ high score went to Elaine Hillier with a 140.

Thanks to Barb and her assistants for the lunches. Next up at the Comox Legion are the Branch playoffs on Jan. 27-29.
