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!
