Dart enthusiasts came out to the Smithers Open last week at the Royal Canadian Legion.


Players from around the northwest come out to annual event.

The Smithers Dart League held their annual Smithers Open Tournament at the Royal Canadian Legion over the weekend.

Dozens of players came out to the event, from as far away as Burns Lake and Prince Rupert.

Organizers had a wrench thrown in their plans when dart league president Shane Wadden and his partner, vice president Erika Corfe had to miss the tournament because she went into labour.

Susan Rowe stepped up and took charge for the remainder of the weekend.

“There was a strong turnout and I think everyone had a good time,” Rowe said.

Action got underway on Friday night with mixed doubles. The singles events took place on Saturday and the mixed teams on Sunday.

The Smithers Open marks the last darts league day of the year in town, though some competitors will travel to upcoming events around the northwest.


Mixed doubles:

1) Rob Meima and Jody Enders.

Ladies singles:

1) Laura Jankauskas.

Men’s doubles:

1) Rob and Mark Meima.

Ladies doubles:

1) Donnie Hall and Susan Schwegler.

Men’s singles:

1) Andy Towse.

Mixed team final:

1) Andy Towse, James Belliveau and Yolande Caton.
