Jeju Furey’s first darts tournament hit the mark at Bull's Bar in City Hall on Sunday, April 7.

The 16 team tournament raised approximately 650 thousand won for the Furey Foundation, directly benefitting local families in need. It also honored the memory of Debbie Peachy, a former Jeju resident from Indiana who was lost to cancer in 2012.

After defeating Dave and Karma Cunning in the final, Brad Ingram and his partner Vamy emerged as the 2013 Jeju Furey Darts champions.

“We got pretty lucky,” said Ingram. “We had some good throws, and our opponents missed some that could have changed things. It was fun, and we’re always up to raise money for a good cause.”

Neither Brad nor Vamy are strangers to the darts board – Vamy gets plenty of practice on Island Vamy’s board, and Ingram has been competing since he was a kid.

“I’ve been playing darts since I was very young,” conceded Ingram. “I’ve had lots of practice. Misspent youth – I like to hang out in bars too much.”

Their trophy will be on display at Island Vamy, which is located above Island Stone in Jeju City, and owned by Vamy.

Tournament organizer Sachin Mahajan was pleased with the sophomore showdown.

“I’m always overwhelmed after this,” Mahajan admitted. “A big thanks to [Bull's Bar], our volunteers, sponsors, and participants. We couldn’t have done it without them. Furey events are always loads of fun. I’m glad I got to put another one together, and give a lot of money to families that need it.”
