Small turnout for ladies darts tournament

Cancelled ferry from Powell River limits entries at Comox Legion event




The Comox Legion Ladies Open Darts Shoot was all-but-scuttled by the Comox-Powell River ferry as Saturday’s first sailing from Little River was cancelled.

Four ladies who had looked forward to participating were left high and dry at the Powell River terminal.

Regardless, the tournament got under way with a small turnout. Only six pairs took part in the doubles event (a far cry from the inaugural event of four years ago when 31 ladies participated). Eventual winners of the doubles event were Sandi Kohlen and Kellie Watt. Second place went to Patti Dennis and Brenda Durant, with Carol Merkley and Margaret Bull placing third.

In the Singles event, eight ladies took to the toe line. Norma Hanson made it two for two, winning both the Powell River and Comox Legion events. Placing second was Sandi Kohlen with Patti Dennis taking third place.

Thanks to the ladies that participated; the convener looks forward to seeing you all at the Memorial Tournament in April. A big thanks to Jackie Davis for the lunch.
