YOUTH DARTS NEWSFLASH

Youth Darts Provincial Champions

Dundas Valley City Branch 36 of the Royal Canadian Legion runs a Youth Dart League each year open to all young people in the community between the ages of 9 and 18.  They develop their dart playing skills while playing in the league each week from September to May.

Members of the Dundas league also travel to area Legion Branches to compete with other Youth Dart League members in Legion Youth Darts tournaments.

On May 12, the Royal Canadian Legion held its Provincial Youth Darts Tournament at Highland Creek Branch 258 in Scarborough  The players from the Dundas Youth Dart League showed players from across the province that they meant business.  Everyone played really well, had a lot of fun, met some tough competition, showed a lot of sportsmanship and came away winners.

 Rachel Harrington, Curtis Holme, Mitchell Purchase and A.J.Lewis entered and won the Provincial Senior Teams tournament.  They all played really well, had a lot of fun and showed great sportsmanship.  All of the members of the senior team rubbed Curtis' head for luck and apparently it worked.
