Registration opens tomorrow, October 10th at 8 AM for our Fall Mid-Season Parity Doubles Tournament. Only the first 64 to RSVP will play in the tournament, so be sure to do so ASAP. Once those 64 spots are filled, players may show up on the night of the tournament and place their names on a first-come first-served standby list. For those who haven’t participated before, this is an event NOT to be missed. The night is a combination dart tournament, awards night, and SCDA celebration with great food, great beer, and great dart players. The first beer, food, and the tournament are FREE to all current SCDA members (anyone who has paid dues in this season or the previous 2). This year we will have Tom Clark’s famous pulled pork sandwiches, a vegetarian dish, salad & dessert. While everyone eats and enjoys that first beer, we hand out awards for the Spring and Summer seasons. Then we get started with the highly-competitive, super-fun tournament!
The tournament is a doubles parity draw, which means, we list all players into 8 different groups based on their Dart Connect averages. Then we blindly pull names from those different groups (top players in group 1 get paired with players in group 8, and so on…) creating 32 balanced doubles teams. The tournament is double-elimination best 2-of-3 Chicago, with a losers bracket single leg of SIDO 701. The 1st Place team gets $100; 2nd gets $60; 3rd gets $40.
This really is a fun night where many players in our league get to partner and mingle with other SCDA members whom they may otherwise never meet. Everyone MUST REGISTER TO PLAY and on the night of the tournament, all registered players MUST CHECK IN NO LATER THAN 6:45PM. If you register and don’t check in by 6:45pm, your spot will go to whomever is next on the standby list. Last year, the 64 spots filled in less than a week, so please click the Sign Up button at the top of the home page immediately (or click any of the hyperlinks in this write-up). After the first week of registration, if all 64 spots have not been filled, we will open the tournament to other dart friends of the SCDA for $10.
The tournament is Monday, October 23rd at MacLeod Ale Brewing Co. Check-in opens at 5:00PM, food will start at 5:30PM, Check-in closes at 6:45PM, Awards start at 7:00PM, and the tournament will start at 7:30PM SHARP.
And congratulations to Sean McInerny of Circle Firkers in D Div, and to Eddie Burke of Home Sweet Nut House in C Div on hitting their very first SCDA R9s! Welcome to the club gentlemen! A shout out also to Chris Holman of C Squared in A Div for hitting FIVE R7s. Them’s good darts. Keep ’em coming’!
Have fun tonight, everyone, and SHOOT WELL!
