DARTS IS BACK!!!
We will have a summer season! Sign-up and the blind draw tournament will be May 11th at Sunset Lanes. 6:30 sign-up; tournament sign-up to start at 7 and play at 7:30 (summer league sign-up will go from 6:30 to 9 or so). Here are the details:
Because last year was a bust anyone who paid their dues in January 2020 will have them carried over for 2021. We are also waiving the tavern fee for the summer season. We will be using DartConnect for the season and that will be $20 per team ($5 per person if you have 4 people). If you were not a member for 2020 dues will be as follows: $5 for just the summer season or $20 for the rest of the year. This will make you eligible to play in the sign-up and mid-season tournaments even if you aren't on a team.
Blind Draw tournament - $5 entry. Format to be determined by turn out (single or double elimination). 100% payout plus $120.
MASK WILL BE REQUIRED UNLESS YOU ARE SITTING!!
Other dart news:
We have rescheduled and renamed the Rochester Open. New dates are October 8th and 9th at Sunset Lanes - GOD willing we can hold it.
After Dave's passing it was suggested by a few that we honor him for all the hard work he put into darts and specifically building the Rochester Open. The board voted this week to rename the Rochester Open the Dave DeBruyne Rochester Open. He loved the game, even when he wasn't shooting. He loved his dart family. I can't think of a better way to honor him.
More details to follow.

Fall 2020 Season:
It is with much regret that the GVDA Board has decided to cancel the 2020 Fall season. With the current SLA (state liquor authority) restrictions, others that are part of phase 4 and the fact that a couple of the participating bars have no reopened they concluded it would be best to cancel the season. This also means the upcoming sign-up tournament is also canceled.
Here are the main reasons:
* SLA says no bar games allowed aka darts, pool, cornhole etc.
* Bars are at only 50% capacity
* New requirement that people must sit and eat and not mingle
We are looking at doing an on-line singles league. Please let me (Amy) know if you would be interested in playing. You can reach me via FB or by email: email@example.com
It was also decided, for the same reasons noted above, that we will be canceling the Rochester Open scheduled for October 2020. We are looking at dates in 2021 and will post the new date once we have it.
These are abnormal times. We are all hoping it gets back to normal at some point. Until then please be safe, wear a mask and wash your hands.

If the establishment you play in offers takeout, that will still be available so we encourage all members to take advantage and support them as much as you can!
Stay safe and wash your hands!
