Weather Postponement

In light of the continued ban on all unnecessary travel, the fact that 490 is closed and the weather radar that calls for continuing snow until at least 6pm the GVDA has decided to postpone darts for this evening. Please inform your taverns in the event that may want to close. Matches will be made up in week 9 as part of a double points night as the schedule is an exact duplicate of tonight's schedule. Alternatively, if captains agree, matches can be made in a different manner. Options include playing on a different night or, if the tavern has 2 boards, 2 matches can be played simultaneously rather than counting each individual match as 2 points. If you choose one of these alternatives to make up your match please inform the GVDA via email or by putting a note on the score reporting portal. Thanks. Stay safe and warm.

Bad Weather February 16th

Currently there is a no-unnecessary-travel advisory in Monroe and other surrounding counties. We will make a decision by mid afternoon on what the plan is for tonight's matches so keep an eye out on this news blog for updates. Thanks & be safe!

The first ADO qualifier for 2016 was a HUGE success!

We had 12 players broken into two groups (Clubs and Spades) of 6. The top 3 from each group advanced to a final round robin group. The GVDA kicked in $50 towards a 2nd player advancing and each of the finalist put in $10 each to fully fund a second player from Rochester advancing to the Regional/National qualifier in March.

Here is the breakdown:

PLAYER Robert Reggie Rich Dave D. Dave M Joe
Robert X 3 3 3 1 3 13
Reggie 0 X 2 3 1 2 8
Rich 0 1 X 2 1 1 5
Dave D. 0 0 1 X 1 2 4
Dave M 2 2 2 2 X 1 9
Joe 1 1 2 1 2 X 7
PLAYER Andy Doc Stacy Scotty Dan H. Dale
Andy X 3 3 3 1 2 12
Doc 0 X 3 3 2 0 8
Stacy 0 0 X 1 2 1 4
Scotty 0 0 2 X 0 0 2
Dan H. 2 1 1 3 X 2 9
Dale 1 3 2 3 1 X 10

Dan Houser came out on top in the final round robin and there was a 3-way tie between Robert Stewart, Dale LaFrance and Andy Joss. They went into a tiebreaker..round robin of one leg of 501. Robert came out on top to secure the second spot. Dale LaFrance is the 1st alternate and Andy Joss the 2nd alternate.

Congratulations to Dan and Robert and to all the shooters!! Dan and Robert will be representing Rochester in the Regional/National qualifier on March 13th.

ADO Winmau Masters REgional date changed!


The date for the Winmau Masters Regional/National qualifier has been changed to Sunday March 13th due to a conflict with the 401 doubles tournament that most participants had already committed too.
