Winterfest Dart tourney begins tonight at the Elks Lodge

The 21st annual Winterfest Dart Tournament this year is offering plenty of prize money

Starting Feb. 21 is the 21st annual Penticton Winterfest Dart Tournament at the Elks Lodge on Ellis Street.

With a declining number of teams in the regular pub league at the lodge and the corresponding drop in tournament entries, organizers of this year’s event have added plenty more incentives for players to sign up, including extra prize money sponsored by GloRing and South Okanagan Dart Supplies.

As well, Interior Roofing is sponsoring a consolation round and a great prize for taking 170 out (the highest score with three darts) also sponsored by South Okanagan Dart Supplies.

On Saturday registration for men’s singles and women’s doubles closes at 9:30 a.m. and the toe line at 10 a.m.

Final events of the day are the women’s singles and men’s doubles, registration for both closing at 1 p.m. and the toe line at 3 p.m.
