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!
