It appears that participation in the Ladies Open darts tournament held annually at the Comox Legion is dwindling, going from 33 players in its inaugural year down to 14 this year.
Those that participated showed stamina in a drawn-out event that lasted close to nine hours.
Starting with the doubles at 10 a.m., seven pairs played a best-of-two round robin format with the top four going to the knockout stage for first place. Brenda Durant and Patti Dennis beat out Sandi Kohlen and Wendy Jackson, while Elaine Hillier and Liisa Salminen took third spot edging out Norma Hanson and Ann Greig.
Singles got underway after a break for lunch with 10 players participating. They also played the best-of-two round robin, with the top four going to the knockout stage. Playing the best-of-three, Wendy Jackson edged Brenda Durant two games to one while Sandi Kohlen took third spot over Leslie Lamouroux.
Thanks to Vicky Willington for preparing the lunch, a very tasty turkey vegetable soup and small variety of sandwiches. Next up at the Comox Legion is the Men’s Open on March 17. Watch for more info and posters.
