GVDA 40th Anniversary - 2018 Winter Season

The GVDA, founded in November 1977, held the first season of league play back in January 1978. This upcoming season will therefore be the 40th anniversary of league darts in Rochester!

The season signup, tournament and AGM will be held at Sunset Lanes this coming Tuesday, 9th January.



Season Signup
If you have a team put together already you can bring the completed registration form to Sunset Lanes any time between 7pm and 11pm to add the team to the scheduling list. If you do not yet have a team but intend to register one, or if you are looking for a team to join or looking for other players to form a team then let us know, or better yet come on down and have a chat, meet other dart players and maybe shoot in the signup tournament. Please note you will need to provide shirt sizes for your roster this season as we will be commemorating our 40th anniversary with shirts for rostered full year members.

Tournament
Signup for the tournament will begin at about 7pm and last call will be at 7:30pm. Cost to enter the tournament is $5 per GVDA member. Prize pool will be $240 plus 100% of the entry fees. We will also hold a 50-50 and be running the random out contest - a shot at a random out between 81 and 170.

Membership 
Membership of the GVDA has annual dues of just $30 per player. This entitles you to all three seasons of the year as well as eligibility for our members-only tournaments (typically this means at least 3 signup blind draws, 3 midseason blind draws and 4 FREE local qualifiers for the national ADO competitions). Membership does not require being on a team roster or playing in the league - there is also general membership available for players in the area.
