Organisers of this year’s Kitimat Darts Open got a pleasant surprise as the number of players – including out-of-towners – went up dramatically from the last few years.

That made for some pretty intense competition and, with all entry money being returned in prizes as well as money raised by the Open committee, more cash in the pocket of the top four teams in each event.

In total $3,200 was paid out and the committee is anticipating  more “added money” for the September tourney.

Results were as follows:




Mixed Doubles

1- Ann and Joe Grandy (PR)
