Memorial Dart Tournament On Target
16 Teams Pay Tribute To Larry Leddige & Brenda Peacher; Hamiltons Win Inaugural Title

The first annual Larry Leddige Memorial Dart Tournament was held Aug. 16-17 at The Cottonwood in Glasgow. This event is named for dart player Larry Leddige, who passed away in May 2013. Larry was a great guy who loved his family and friends and also enjoyed his darts.
This tournament is a benefit tournament, and organizers use the proceeds to give a little help to people with medical costs. It may not be much, but they hope people realize there are others out there willing to help.
This year the tournament was devoted to helping Brenda Peacher, who recently underwent triple bypass surgery.
For the first annual tournament, those involved thought they had a pretty good turnout. Sixteen teams participated in a two-day round robin tournament style format. There were a lot of darts thrown and a lot of fun was had by all the participants.
In addition, a silent auction featured numerous items donated by local businesses. The businesses in Glasgow are great. They are asked to help many causes and they do what they can. Everyone at the Larry Leddige Memorial Dart Tournament is grateful for their help.
The winners of the first annual LLMD are Dewayne Hamilton and Lawrence Hamilton, a performance that earned them this week’s Hi-Line Ford Athlete of the Week honors (see Page 7B).
In second place were Scott Sowieja and Gordon Messerly. In third place were Timm Canen and Nate Lloyd. In fourth place were Charlie Mears and Jory Shipman, and fifth place went to Terry Sharp and Chris St. Germaine.
All are appreciated for participating in the Larry Leddige Memorial Dart Tournament and stopping by to bid on the silent auction, especially Judy Leddige for allowing everyone to remember Larry by naming the tournament after him.
Organizers look forward to seeing everyone again in December 2014 for the second annual tournament.
