This book has been compiled to provide details of tournament winners and runners up of dart tournaments played in Canada. The main tournaments have been identified - Canadian Open, Klondike Open, Quebec Open, Canadian National Championships, plus many more. There maybe errors with names being mispelt and that ladies surnames may have changed but I've put in an enormous time and effort to correctly record the results of the tournaments. These are the tournaments that I have been able to identify and collate results. There are probably a number of tournaments that I haven't identified that are played in Canada and therefore I don't have these results. Even with the tournaments listed in upcoming chapters I cannot locate results for them. Research has been completed for this book to provide the reader and dart enthuiast information on books and links to web sites of dart manufacturers, County Darts Organisations, Professional Bodies and Organisations, dart stores, Provincial Dart Associations in Canada, and Country Darts Organisations. This is not a comprehensive list but it begins the work of collating details of darts into one place instead of being scattered around the World Wide Web across many sites and publications. If any dart enthusiasts can provide results of tournaments that are listed here that I've missed or results of tournaments that are not even listed in this book, it would be appreciated. I hope you enjoy the book.

Throughout Europe, medieval forces were either engaged in conflict or preparing for it through training. Arising from the need to keep the skills of warriors sharp and battle-ready, medieval jousting for knights on horseback became a widespread pastime. This book details how the culture of medieval tournaments arose around jousting and other games of combat, including both for the mounted cavalry (knights) and foot soldiers (in events such as melees) and became a central aspect of medieval court life. Readers will be further drawn in by the visual pageantry and artifacts depicted in the book's historical imagery.
