Congratulations to our very own Matt Smooke on taking 1st Place in 501 Men’s Singles this past weekend at the 20th Annual Pat Murphy Open in San Diego! Matt took down some pretty amazing players on his way to winning the ADO sanctioned event. Prior to the weekend, the ADO had Matt ranked 19th in the nation, and this win is sure to boost him a few more spots. Well done, Matt! We’re all so proud of you!!!
Congratulations to Chris Holman of Take Notes (A Div) for hitting only the 2nd SCDA “Dead-Eye” since I’ve been in the League (2011)! That’s 3 Double-Bulls in 1 turn! Congratulations also to Matt Smooke of Shanghai Knights (A Div) for adding both a Ton80 AND an R9 to his long list of highlights. And congrats to Dan Guinan of Shoot to Thrill (A Div) for also hitting an R9. Well done, gentlemen!
With only 2 weeks of regular season play remaining (except for D Division who play their final regular season matches tonight), NO NEW PLAYERS MAY BE ADDED TO ANY TEAM ROSTERS. And don’t forget that a player must have participated in at least 3 regular season matches to be eligible to play in the playoffs.
3 of the 4 playoff spots have been locked down in A Div. Shanghai Knights has the top spot in A1. Robin’s Archers will secure the 2nd spot with a win tonight against Team Lakay, but Team Lakay can pull out the upset if they win tonight and next week. Angel City Darts and Shoot to Thrill have secured the 2 playoff spots in A2. ACD currently holds to top seed, but STT could steal that away with a win tonight against ACD AND another win w/ an ACD lost in Week 10.
In B Div, currently undefeated MacKrakens (7-0) has secured the #1 seed and will host Predators in the Semi-Finals. Moneyshot and Who Darted will square off with seed to be determined over the last two weeks of the regular season.
With a win tonight, Armed & Intoxicated will secure the top seed in C1. Beebop & Rocksteady could possibly steal the lead with a win in Weeks 9 & 10, but Beebop could also see themselves in a winner-goes-on/loser-goes-home match in Week 10 against Darty Rotten Scoundrels. Currently undefeated at 8-0, Las Banderas has secured the #1 spot in C2 . The #2 spot will go the winner of tonight’s match between Calamitous Intent and Home Sweet Nuthouse.
In D Div, currently undefeated Get F#cked (8-0) has the #1 seed and will host #4 This Bitch in the Semis, while #2 Them Stooges Be Trippin’ will host #3 The Brewery Dartel.
Please remember that the SCDA will hold Annual Elections and a General Meeting on Monday, May 14th, 7:30 PM at the Robin Hood British Pub, 13640 Burbank Blvd.
Any Member in good standing wishing to run for a Board position must state their intention to do so through the Contact SCDA form (http://scdaleague.com/contact-us/) by April 17th.
Have fun tonight and Shoot Well!!!
