Midseason Oct. 28 at Sunset Lanes

The fall midseason tournament will be held on October 28th at Sunset lanes.

As usual, sign-in starts at about 7, with the draw just after 7:30.

In addition to the regular blind draw ($5 in, $240+100% payout), we will have a singles 101 event.

101 will start a bit after the blind draw (don't worry about scheduling and match timing, that's our problem). $1 in, $50+100% payout.

Why add the 101? Something new to try and it is a fun, short game we should be able to run without causing the night to go later.

The next ADO event is cricket. Regional event to be hald at the PACC on 11/9 and 12/7 2014. I will be running a FREE qualifier for GVDA only members on Saturday October 25th at Sunset Lanes. Sign-in time is 11 with play to start at 11:45 a.m. This will be a round robin event with specific format TBD based on turn out. Winner will got to the Regional event inSyracuse with the winner there going to the ADO cricket Nationals in Vegas in January 2015.

You must be a GVDA member in good standing to participate in this event. If you are not, the cost for this season only is $15 to become a member. Please contact me or Dave or bring your dues to the qualifier on 10/25.

Fall schedules are up!

The Fall schedules are completed and posted!  League play starts on Tuesday 9/9.  We do have one opening for a team in Division C - perfect for anyone wanting to put a new team together.  If you would like to put a team together and be added please go to the contact link on the webpage and send us a note.

This season divisions will again consist of 6 teams.  We listened to your comments and this season the top 4 teams will make playoffs instead of just 2 like the past couple of seasons.  To do this we had to adjust the schedule and push the last week of playoffs out to January 6th so please plan accordingly.

Good luck this season!
