Fall 2018 - Playoff Brackets: Update

Hello Everyone, 

(Here) are the playoff brackets for this season.  As always, we play Tuesday and Thursday (Race to 17 Pts.), its 1 vs 4, 2 vs 3, higher seed has choice of starting home or away.  The only exception is if a higher division match up chooses to play a certain night at a sponsor who only has one board, or not enough space to accommodate four teams at once, in which case, the higher division match up has choice.  

As an example this year, The White House has both of their teams qualifying for the playoffs, but only has 1 playable board.  As per the rules, the higher division team (Reckless Darters) has choice as to starting home or away for the Tuesday match, with the lower division team (10-15 Over) having to start opposite of the higher division's choice.  Captains, please let each other know where you want to play, and also let me know ASAP so we can figure out any conflicts, and so the league can share the match ups with anyone who wants to come out and watch.

Please remember folks, we are off next week (12/4), with playoffs starting on 12/11.  

I'll be going around to the bars who won last years B, C, D, and E championships over the next week or so to pick up the traveling trophies, to award to the new champions.  I'm compiling the stats for the Final Standings and they will be released as usual on Friday.  

Good luck to all involved!  

UPDATE:  All teams have reported in, and the schedule has been posted  ----->  HERE

Fall 2018 - Final Standings and Playoff Eligibility

Hello Everyone, 

First off, I want to thank you all for making my first season as secretary as relatively painless as possible and I look forward to keeping it going in the seasons to come!

Now, onto the nitty gritty of it all.  We're done as far as regular season is concerned.  Final Playoff Eligibility is attached as well as the standings.  Please contact me ASAP if you believe the eligibility seems off for your team and I go through it with you.  

There were a lot of nice darts thrown throughout the season, and last week was no exception with Chris "Pugz" Puglia throwing his second T80 of the season!  Way to go Chris!   We had 2 divisions with ties for 4th place, needing both tie-breakers to be used to break them.  Earlier this week I sent out the Playoff Brackets for each division.  I'll be resending the brackets with schedules as they come in.  

Reminder:  Next week (12/4) is an off-week.  This was put in back in August, in-case of inclement weather.  We got lucky this year, with only 1 storm hitting (and on a Thursday night at that).  

In the upcoming days I'll be updating the site with reminders for when Roster submissions will start for the Spring, as well as a timeline of when the Captain Meeting will be along with the start of the season.

Good Luck to all the playoff and to all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Fall 2018 - Week 13 Results and Playoff Eligibility

Hello Everyone, 

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!  We are down to 1 last week of regulation play and some of the divisions have some tight races going on.  There are a handful of players that are 1 week out for qualifying for Playoff Eligibility.  Please go over the list and make sure your teams are all set.  If a person isn't listed, then they haven't/aren't qualified for the playoffs.  If you have any questions or concerns please contact me ASAP so we can get things all ironed out.

Congratulations go out to Jaime Welnicki and Rich Cooper for their 180s this past week.  Congratulations also goes out to George Prine for his C9.  Excellent darts folks!! 

Best of luck to everyone next week!

Fall 2018 - Week 12 Results and Playoff Eligibility

Hello everyone, 

Just a quick explanation on how the Playoff Eligiblity lists are presented.  Starting this week, once a player is no longer eligible for the playoffs, they will be removed from the list all-together.  If you have a player that you think should be eligible, please let me know ASAP.   We've got 2 weeks left before the season ends.  Please plan accordingly to make sure you get your playoff rosters all set.  

I'd also like to bring up an issue that has been going on all season long.  iPhone users who email / text me your sheets, please make sure that you're not sending a thumbnail sized picture of the sheet but the actual photo.  There's little to no way to cleanly get the information off these sheets.  Please try to send the full image instead of the thumbnail.  You might have to export the image out of Photo before sending it in.  If you need assistance with this let me know and I'll try to help you out as best I can.

Congratulations to Walt Teator for shooting a C9 this past week as well as Colm Neilson bursting into the lead for A Division Win/Loss record of 24-0!   

Have a great weekend folks and good luck on Tuesday!
