Long day of darts at Comox Legion

With play getting underway at 10 a.m. on April 18, a long day awaited participants in the Comox Legion’s ninth annual Memorial Darts Tournament, with the final being over by approximately 7:30 p.m.

Players were in fine spirits with 53 players (13 teams, 12×4 and 1×3) stepping up to the toe line for a round-robin event of two games of 701.

As the shoot progressed so did the sound decibels. When the last dart was thrown in the preliminary event, the mathematicians went to work.

With only one clear-cut team (18 of a possible) heading into the beloved knockout round, five teams with 16 wins had to be placed in their correct order: seventh and eighth with 15 and 12 wins made up the top eight.

Triumphantly taking two straight was the Griffin team of Tim and Scott Parsons, Bud Englund and John Chequis. Second went to the team of Ken Hayes, Joe McNeil, Bill Foottit and Tim Sinclair.

Third and fourth spots were undecided, (it had been a long day), so the two teams split the prize money.

Many thanks to all that participated; it makes the hard work involved worthwhile. Again another splendid job by the food and bar staff, and of course the set-up and take-down help.

Next up is the Pineapple and Ham Shoot in August.
