The winter season of the Çalış Children’s Charity Darts and Pool League came to a successful close recently when the presentation of cups to the two league winners took place at a special presentation and fun evening at Guven’s Bar and Restaurant in Koca Çalış.


The popular league which for the second year running was sponsored by Interturk Estates of Çalış had been running on Monday nights throughout the winter months with teams representing 8 Çalış bars and restaurants taking part.


Seril 1 do the double and are 2011 Champions in both pool and darts.

Competition was fierce in both leagues but outright winners for the second year running in both darts and pool were Seril 1 restaurant who did the double and retained the two League Champion Cups for yet another year. Newcomers to this year’s league and hosts of the evening, Guven’s, won the dubious honour of being awarded wooden spoons for coming bottom in both leagues. All of the participating bars and restaurants received a certificate thanking them for their support.

Guven’s do the double and get both wooden spoons!

During the week prior to the presentation evening a special darts and pool knockout competition was organized by the 3C’s with the semi-finals and finals taking part on the presentation night and a cup being awarded to the 2011 Knockout Champions, Kelvin Duffin (darts) and Kevin Dennis (pool).

The league, besides providing a weekly fun social evening at the bars throughout the winter, also helped raise over 1000TL for the 3C’s charity, helping children in the Çalış/Fethiye area.

Unfortunately Cenk and Olga Akay of Interturk Estates were unable to present the cups on the night so 3C’s compere Mark Jarvis presented them on their behalf. He thanked both Interturk for their continuing support, Graham Whitaker and Kevin Dennis for their hard work in organizing the league and everyone who had supported the league throughout the season. He also thanked hosts Carole and Guven Sahin for the great food and entertainment on the night which included a fire show and walking on glass.
