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
