Twenty-two participants from Kamloops, Clearwater, Ashcroft, 108 Mile Ranch, 100 Mile House and Forest Grove participated in the Second Annual Rob McKay Memorial Darts Tournament on Dec. 6, despite an adverse weather forecast.

With a score of 135, Ruth also won the Women’s High Score, and the Men’s High Score went to George Burgeois from Kamloops with a 140 score.

A score of 60 garnered Heather Sinclair from Kamloops the Women’s High Out and Ed Andrews scored 74 to win the Men’s High Out.

Rene Leblanc collected the 50/50, which was set up to raise funds for new dart boards.
