Classic doubles for Jason and Judy

Jason beat Danny McKenzie of Stanley Mission in the singles final, and then partnered up with Damian Riceof Lloydminster to take the doubles over McKenzie and his partner, local star Rod Swenson. Jason says "it was great darts."

Judy won singles over Saskatoon's Barb Schmidt and teamed up with Lowine Binkley of Hudson Bay to take women's doubles.

2014 Blizzard

The annual Blizzard dart tournament was held in Regina January 18. We have the following report from SDA President Pat Copeman:

"If there isn't a blizzard on the weekend of the "Blizzard" they will come, and by the end of the day it was evident that the Collinses from Medicine Hat came to play and to win.

Scott Collins bested Moose Jaw's Curt Gamble in the Men's singles final. Joint thirds in this event were John Brann (Regina) and Scott Lemoine (Alberta). Scott and his partner, Rob Kochie, also won the Men's doubles event taking out Moose Jaw Zone's Cliff Culbert and Jesee Gamble. Joint thirds were Jim Dennis and Trevor Gilchrist (Regina) and Deon Grandy and Dawson Murschell (Alberta).

On the ladies' side Regina's Bonnie Lapierre and her partner Sherry Hingtgen won the doubles event over Judy Cleaveley (Hudson Bay) and Joan Hodgen (Midale). Joint thirds were Shauna Collins and Leslie Kochie (Alberta) and Trish Gray (Rosetown) and Dakota Roberts (Prince Albert).

Shauna Collins obviously used the doubles event as a warm-up for singles as she went on to win the Ladies' singles event, besting Regina's Becky Arndt in the final. Joint thirds in Ladies' singles went to Judy Cleaveley and Joan Hodgen.

Thank you to all of you who attended the tournament.

Thanks, as well, to Bryce Van Loosen, manager of the German Club, for the great job he did of putting up the dart boards." - Pat Copeman

 2014 Youth Classic

We have the following report from SDA Youth Director Trish Gray:

And the awards went to: 

  "The  Youth Classic 2014 was held January 11th at the Anavets Club in Saskatoon. 

Twelve youth players from across the province attended and participated in a Blind Doubles draw, and then singles were played for each of the respective categories, Junior and Senior, Boys and Girls. It was a pleasure to see some new faces that took advantage of this tournament for tips and strategies on the game. 

  Once again many thanks to the parents and the numerous volunteers that gave their time to help make this an enjoyable day for the youth players. Your continued support is what will make youth darts a success.    -Trish

Toy Shoot a success

With a report from Saskatoon's charity darts shoot, here's Laurie Kitzul:

"December 6th marked the 23rd Annual Toy Shoot, a mixed doubles tournament where the entry fee is toys and dart players come out and have fun while supporting local families. We also do a food drive for the Food Bank and raise some funds and donate that to the Salvation Army.

"This year's champs are Cathy Kerrigan and Alex Parnitsky, pictured left, who took out Laurie Kitzul and Doug Spearey, last year's winners. We had 24 teams which was down from last year, but those of us that were there had fun!

On Friday night Karsten Larsen ran a blind draw doubles tournament at the Army and Navy for those who couldn't play and for those who wanted to practice. Plans were to donate half of the entry fees to the Toy Shoot, but players donated their winnings back and some members also gave and they raised just over $200!  An event I think will continue for years to come.

Thanks to everyone who came early to set up and to those who stayed to tear down...thank you ... thank you." - Laurie Kitzul

New leader for Saskatoon Youth darts

Organizer Eva Schellenberg (pictured) recently started youth darts up again in Saskatoon. They get together Saturday mornings at the Army Navy so if you're 19 or under and play at any level, there's somewhere for you to meet others and play. Players aged 7 to 16 are already throwing. You can contact Eva at this E-mail.

Eva says, "let's get our youth more involved because they are the future. Please come out and support Youth Darts!"  We'll be there, Eva!

"The Sask Open was held at a new venue this year.  I would like to say a big thank you to Bryce Van Loosen for all his work in setting up the boards and getting the auditorium at the German Club ready for us.

Thank you, as well, to Curt Gamble who brought the porta-units from Moose Jaw for us to use.

Friday night at the mixed doubles event we had a mystery guest who added greatly the the entertainment for the evening...

While the attendance at the events on Saturday was not as high as expected the calibre of darts thrown met every expectation.
