Players gobble up prizes at Comox Legion turkey shoot darts tourney

After the feathers had settled (be assured that no birds were hurt) at the Comox Legion Turkey Shoot darts tournament, Hap Hanson, Arnie Morrison. Shane Dennis, Peter Andrews, Ken Hayes and Joanne Penny were recipients of a turkey, while Chad Trouton and Norma Hanson settled for a ham.

Twenty-eight players (14 pairs) turned out for the event and played a full round robin with the top eight doubles going to a best-of-three knockout round.

Once the top four had been decided, Hap and Arnie played Shane and Peter for first place bragging rights while Ken and Joanne played Chad and Norma to see if it was going to be a turkey or a ham.

Men’s high score went to Chad with his 180, while (tongue in cheek) Shane registered the only men’s double out of 36. Ladies high score and high out went to Jennifer Harrison with a 140 and a 74.

The dart scene slows down as most local leagues head into the festive season. The next tournament at the Comox Legion will be the Ladies Open on Feb. 13.
