For the first time in a decade, the Ashcroft Legion, Branch #113, sent a dart team to the B.C./Yukon Command Playoffs, held recently in Comox. Ashcroft finished 10th out of 16 teams.

The winner of that event advanced to the Dominion Command Playoffs in Ontario. The Ashcroft team beat out zone teams from Kamloops, Chase, Lillooet and Merritt to capture this zone’s title. Team members were Bob Williams, Nick Lebedoff, George Harvie and Bill McGarry.

Hedda Hall of Royal LePage Ashcroft Realty generously donated team t-shirts and was presented with a certificate of appreciation recently.

The Ashcroft and District Lions Club also donated $200 toward travelling expenses and was also presented with a certificate of appreciation.

The team and the Ashcroft Legion sincerely thank Royal LePage Ashcroft Realty, the Ashcroft and District Lions Club and the Legion members and members of the public who generously contributed toward the team efforts.
