LOCAL ADO QUALIFIER FOR US TEAM

Third ADO event of the year is for a spot on the 2018 America's Cup Team.

FREE GVDA local qualifier is on Saturday, August 19th. Sunset Lanes..11 am sign in with an 11:30 start. All 501; play all 3 legs. We will be sending the top 2 point finishers to the Regional on August 27th.

Open to all GVDA members in good standing.

Not a member? No problem! For $15 you can join the GVDA and be eligible to play any ADO QUALIFIER or GVDA sign up or mid-season tournament for the rest of the year.

With enough interest, I would be willing to run a paid qualifier for anyone outside of the local GVDA area who wants to come in from Syracuse or Buffalo. Would need a minimum of 5 people to hold it..$25 entry per person. Entry fee decreases if we get more entries.

Who is in??

DARTS ON TV IN THE US!

The GVDA has a favor to ask. Part of the GVDA mission is to promote the sport of darts. In addition to our local league play and running the annual Rochester Open many of our members travel to out of town tournaments.  Through this the GVDA has earned the privilege to call friends many players in the US, Canada and a few abroad who also play darts in leagues and competitively at tournaments. Beginning tonight into tomorrow morning is an important broadcast of a Major US tournament from Las Vegas.  This is a huge step in growing the sport in North America and is the first time in a very long time that the PDC will be here playing against North American players.  Darts is rarely televised in the US but It will be broadcast on FOX SPORTS 1 channel 400 on Spectrum Cable in upstate NY. We need to show that dart telecasts are worth the time, effort and expense for broadcasters and advertisers. What we need from our GVDA friends is for everyone to record, watch or just leave the cable box on to get the ratings up for this event. There are multiple broadcasts. Here are the days and times.
Friday ~ 12:30 am - 2:30 am
Saturday ~ 12:00 am - 2:00 am
Sunday ~ 12:00 am - 2:00 am and 10:30 pm - 12:30 am
Monday ~ 7:30 am - 9:30 am
Thanks

ADO QUALIFIER RESULTS

The local ADO qualifier for the 501 Championship and East/West All stars was held Sunday at Sunset Lanes. Thank you to the 8 darters that came out to play. Congratulations to Michael "Data" Nguyen on his first place finish and runner-up Dale LaFrance. They will both now go on to represent the GVDA at the Regional in Syracuse on June 10th. I also need to clarify a miscommunication on my part. At the beginning of the day I indicated that we would be sending one qualifier from the event. I believe I also said that to a player later in the day. This was incorrect and an absolute brain dart on my part. In light of the success of the 50/50 drawings held during the 2017 Rochester Open to support the league ADO effort, the GVDA board elected in the May meeting to qualify 2 people from the free qualifiers conducted by the league for the remainder of the year. This fact was pointed out to me by the other board members in attendance late in the day. I tried to explain the error when announcing the days results but I'm not sure I was successful in explaining my error. I apologize for the conflicting information and any confusion that I caused. Good luck to Data and Dale on June 10th!
