Ladies Open Darts Shoot a success at Comox Legion

Under brilliant, sunny skies 24 ladies opted out of the UV rays to participate in the day-long Ladies Open Darts Shoot at the Comox Legion.

Players from Alberni, Parksville and Campbell River joined the local ladies. Twelve pairs took to the toe line for a round-robin event with the top eight going to the much-loved knockout round.

The final consisted of locals Sandi Kohlen and Wendy Jackson who took the best-of-three over the other Valley duo of Brenda Durant and Patti Dennis.

Third spot went to Nicole Sumner and Becky Godfrey (Campbell River) with Angie Kienas and Noella Ross (Alberni/Parksville) securing fourth place.

Singles had 20 players step up to the toe line. Two sections of 10 played a one-game round-robin with the top eight from each sheet entering a one-game knockout.

Brenda Durant emerged as the winner over her doubles partner Wendy Jackson. Jennifer Manstrum (Campbell River) placed third with local Kellie Watt taking fourth spot.

High take out on the day was Anita Hopps (Parksville) with a finish of 100. Top scores went to Brenda Durant and Jennifer Manstrum both with a 156.

Many thanks to Dwayne, Peter and Ernie for their help to set up, and to Vicky for the lunch.

Next up at the Comox Legion is the Men’s Open on March 21. Posters will be up, but information is available from
