Great turnout for dart tour­na­ment

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Vic­to­ria Vanier Stanstead

The Stanstead Le­gion was full of dart play­ers, last Satur­day, for the 13th an­nual “Come shoot for a cure” dart tour­na­ment. Thirty-four teams took part in the mixed dou­bles tour­na­ment, or­ga­nized by Mar­i­lyn McComb, that raises money ev­ery year for can­cer re­search. There were eleven team win­ners and then all six team win­ners threw three darts each to de­ter­mine the top play­ers which were Lau­rie Ly­on­nais and Rus­sell Waller.

Dur­ing the event, money is also raised with a Silent Auc­tion, the sell­ing of ham­burg­ers and hot­dogs, and two half and halfs and a raf­fle. Gordie Sidel won $100 with the half and half while Paul Bolduc won $89. The raf­fle was won by Mary Hart­ley.

“We raised over $600 with the auc­tion alone, but I still don’t have the to­tal for the tour­na­ment be­cause we’re wait­ing for a few more cheques to come in,” ex­plained Ms. McComb. The to­tal will be re­ported in next week’s news­pa­per.
