The Comox Legion Open Mixed Doubles dart tournament on Oct. 22 was well contested.
Eighteen doubles entered the event, playing a 17-game round robin format. First to fourth spots were decided by a count-back for four pairs with 12 wins. Emerging as first of the sheet were Shane and Patti Dennis followed by Terry Jackson and Brenda Durant, with Art Forbes and Barb Godin with Don Parsons and Leslie Lamouroux filling in the third and fourth place. The fifth playoff spot went to Laurie and Margaret Bull followed by Ernie Linden and Pamela.
To determine the last two to qualify for the top eight playing off, four pairs had to play a single game with first and second out going to the knockout round; they were Hap and Norma Hansen and Ken (The Bowser Kid) and his partner Donna.
As happens in many knockout rounds, being first of the sheet Shane and Patti were dismissed to play for the third and fourth spot. The overall winners were Margaret and Laurie Bull winning the best-of-three over Terry Jackson and Brenda Durant. Third place went to Shane and Patti with Ernie and Pamela rounding off the top four.
Thanks to all that participated; as said previously it was well contested and no one got skunked. Next up at the Comox Legion is the Christmas Turkey Shoot on Dec. 3.
