    I question a start time of 2 pm for a saturday tournament. Doesn't make any sense at all. Unless, of course, the idea is to hold down the turnout.

    There's a group of people who apparently like that start time Fletcher - considering how many events have been run over the last 3-4 years around that time. Personally, I don't care to be in a bar when it's still light outside, but I guess that's just me. Rolling Eyes

    (Then again, no "normal" bar is open at 3am when I'm most into playing anyway! Twisted Evil )

    Sign up is between 12-1pm. What are we doing between 1pm and the 2pm start time? Mandatory practice?

    Hi Fletcher - I'm the one that set the start time, it is actually later than the last couple of big events that I've done at A&L. Part of the reason is there are people that are coming in from out of town Friday night, this gives them something to do during the day and there could be time to do a blind draw that night that want to continue, for those that don't want to play they can go do something else......like rest for the ADO Regional on Sunday that starts even earlier Smile

    Bob - Yes, mandatory practice for you and eliminates the "wait, I just got here it didn't say I couldn't sign up until 2:00" and at the same time it eliminates the "why is this starting so late...we were supposed to start an hour ago". I find it helps to have those time frames defined, maybe I didn't need that much time....

    Any other questions??

    Does everyone have a partner now?

    I'm gonna sure try... it all depends on whether I win the Regional on Sunday or not. There sure are a good bunch of shooters and any number of them are worthy representatives. I'll give it my best shot...

    Is you arm/game going to be mended by then?

    Isn't there a steel-tip dart LOD on Friday night in the Portland area? The one that Dee runs? When and where?

    I am unsure if this is going to happen Friday night, as it is usually at the A&L, which is where the soft-tip event will be held Friday night.

    Christina would know more as she probably figured that out in planning this event. I don't know if the soft-tip tourney is just using the two boards they have there (or are there two more in another corner?) or if they will be in the steel tip area at all... Not sure if the Dee's LOD will run that Friday or not.

    No steel tip on Friday (5/21), we are bringing two more soft tip boards in and likely relocating the existing four and the additional boards in front of the steel tip boards for the night. Here are the details on that one:

    * Open Bring
    * $800 Payout w/20 teams
    * $15 entry ($30 per team)
    * Sign-ups at 7:00 - 7:45 pm
    * Play starts at 8:00 pm
    * No point cap
    *701/Cricket


    Steel tip on Saturday and Sunday.....

    I guess I can show up on Friday night and play soft-tip for the first time in my life.

    I guess I need a partner... anybody want to risk having me as a partner?

    you will notice it is pretty easy; you should expect 7+ counts all night! only confusing part is the rules.... well that is if they have freeze outs... and all those other crazy soft tip rules.

    and bring lots of quarters.

    The weekend was full of great darts.
    Friday night started with a $1000 soft tip shoot.
    Bobcat-aka Bob Given claims he will never play a soft tip event ever again... He had too much fun dealing with the handicap. He and his partner Joe Picote had to give up 14 marks in Cricket and 294 in 701, to the eventual winners. What a joy to play in unlimited handicap events.......

    Saturday was a real blast, as Allen Nutter and Jim Pope ended up Winning 1st by taking out myself and Jason Merrell with "5" Bulls in the last Cricket game. Was very sad as I was up next and only needed 1 to win.
    This was also a $1000 payout, but steel tip

    On Sunday at the Regional for the ADO, Bob Ross ended up winning but did not want to go so Bob Given will take the trip after winning a play off.

    All in all was a great weekend of darts

    I had my suspicions and now it's confirmed - BobCat don't play soft-tip!! For those of you that know me, steel-tip gives me enough fits, I don't need to add any more aggravation to my game. As it was, I was considering setting aside the darts for awhile. But fate has other plans. I played well enough in the ADO Regional to position myself for a chance to represent at the East-West All Star Challenge. Once Bob Ross, who finished first declined to go, I won a playoff to advance. Now again, those of you that know me, know that is truly a rare event. I somehow always seem to manage my worst performance in playoffs. Not this time. So I hope to see a bunch of my dart family in Stamford!!

    Now to get back on thread...

    The Friday night soft-tips was an education. A lesson quickly taught and learned. I've been schooled (and probably tooled...)

    On Saturday, getting back to real darts, I had fun. Didn't play that great but enjoyed the competition. I love the Modified Round Robin format. I personally believe every event should be run like that.

    And on Sunday, a whole lot of darts, with a happy ending for me.

    It was a good weekend of darts...

    Hey Bob, glad you liked the round robin. Most people from back east don't like it. Seems the Northwest is the only area that does this format.
    As you know we do things a little different out here.

    You need to come up to the big city more often. Laughing
    Always a blast to play ya.
