June 20

WOW… can you believe we are already about to start Week 4!   Time sure flies when you’re having fun!  You Dartsters are AMAZING!  (Yes I made that word up!)

Humor me if you will for a little “housekeeping” information:
1. If you are the last team to play at your respective Board/Table, please be sure and put all the Chairs back and WIPE & SANITIZE the Tables & Chairs;
2. On nights when dinner is being served, all Dart Games must be completed by 6:00 p.m. or wait to start until after the dinner is over.  (Sunday is an exception);
3. On League Nights (Thursday) no “fun games” or “make up games” can begin before 8:30 when all League play is over;
4. All Make Up Games must be made up between Thursday and Wednesday of the following week, otherwise the Team who is unable to reschedule will forfeit to their opponent;
5. All Dues for the Dart League must be paid this week. If they are not paid this week any HIGH INs, HIGH OUTs and TONS will not be counted until Due are paid; and
6. When scoring Tons on the Score Sheet Please Only Use One Line for Each Player and separate each ton with a comma… for example… “Susie Que 105, 115, 109.”

Have a great week and if you have any questions call Justin!  🙂

June 18

Dart dues are due, only $45.00 per player and must be paid by the end of our 4th week, 6/24/21. If NOT paid by then, none of your tons or high ins and outs will count. Christy is more than happy to help you.

On another note, make up games. When there is a meal (except for Sunday’s)  games must be completed by 6:00 PM or played after 7:30 PM. Thanks to all who played last night and understood our situation!

So far so good for a fun new season! We have so many new folks playing, welcome to our new members!


Summer League 2021

The Lodge Summer League is now playing. Come on down on Thursdays.


Season 27 Suspended -7/21

The 27th Season has been suspended and all money paid in will be returned including dinner.
Dart Money is being kept in the safe ($3705.00) to be returned.
Envelopes will be grouped by division .
Please initial that you have received the money as stated on the sheet.
You are required to have a current Membership Card to enter the Lodge. (Grand Lodge Rule)
Lodge Treasurer has balanced with Shannon’s records. Any discrepancies see Shannon, Dart Treasurer.
Sorry it took so long, The committee decided this was the only fair way because of
other circumstances. If you wish to donate your portion to any charity of the Lodge
just inform the bartender and they can input into the register and we will make sure it gets
to the charity you have selected.
Yes, you can sign for your spouse and collect that money also, please make sure the envelope has the stated amount inside, we are only human.
If you could call or text the bartender it would help them have the envelopes ready for you when arriving, we keep them in the safe for less confusion behind the bar.
Chuck please advise the bartenders for the above so we can put season 27 away.
We don’t know if we will have another season yet, the pandemic is a contributing factor in the Boards  of the Director’s decision.
This is my last official duty for this season and I will be resigning from the Dart committee,
once this is completed


Week 9

Team 26 C Division has dropped out of the League. I have gone through the wins and losses and added wins and points to each team that they have played. Each team has been awarded 3 wins and 18 points. All Teams should be at 21 games or 24 games if the last week is a bye. Please get games completed by the end of next week so we can have all games completed by the end of the 11 week for the playoffs//Thanks


Week 5; -Cricket Tournament Results

Our first mid season Cricket tournament is done and we had some good games played last night. We had almost half of the league show up and we hope everyone had some fun and are ready to get back to the second half of our regular season and make a run for the playoffs.
Congratulations go out to our Winners
In the first division Ralph and Mike cruised through the winners bracket only to be bested by Bob Fuschetti and Ed Carley who battled back from the losers bracket to take the title from them in 2 games. Bruce and Sherree wound up taking 3rd.
Tina and Dave took First place in the second division and did so without losing a game. Denise and Jason just beat out our newcomers Mike and Melissa for second place.
Week 10, March 19th will be our 2nd Cricket tournament and we are looking forward to even more teams competing and honing their skills before the playoffs begin.
Thanks to all that participated and we’ll see you at the lodge.

Week 5; -Feb 15 Update -Cricket tournament

This is designed to be a fun, change of pace voluntary participation week for all of our members.
The format is going to be a double elimination round robin tournament.
We are not doing a blind draw for teams. Teams will consist of the existing teams from our regular season roster. In the event one member of a team is unable to play any sub for that player will be allowed to play. If you do not have a sub we may be able to pair you up with another league member whose partner is unavailable.
We would like as many teams as possible to be here by 5:30 pm for registration and play will start at 6:00 pm.  I realize not all teams can be here by that time so we are allowing sign up to continue until 7:30 pm.
The cost will $5 per player and prize money will be awarded to the top 3 or 4 places in each division.
I anticipate that we will have 3 or 4 divisions depending on the turnout.
Please respond to me only if you intend to play or if your partner will be unavailable and you still wish to play so that I can get a better idea of the participation level for the night.  No one will be officially signed up though until arriving in person by the 7:30 deadline.
I hope to see as many of you as possible and we are looking forward to this new twist to our season.
See you on Thursday.
Phil, JC, and Shannon

Week 4; Feb 7 update

Many teams have not played because of illness with the Flu stuff

Season Playoffs

Congratulations to all of our playoff contenders. We are doing the same format as last year. All B and C Division matches need to start no later than 6:30 PM on Thursday.  A division matches will start as boards become available. This should be around 7:30 but we would like all A teams to be here and ready to play by 7.
I have attached a copy of the playoff brackets.
Also we would like to see as many of you as possible to support our league and lodge. Playoff night is a lot of fun with plenty of trash talk and entertaining competition.
Thanks to all for another fun season.


A div playoffs are set
Teams 2, 1, 6, 4
B Div Playoffs are set
Teams 11, 16, 14, 17
C Div playoffs are set
Teams 28, 25, 22, 21

C Div has one match to complete by Sunday for this week.Team 22 with 1 win in that match can move to 2nd place but will still play team 25.

Good Luck with the playoffs.

Phil will be sending out the times for the final matches, all games must be played
on the scheduled night, no subs or make up are aloud.

1st place team in C div will not play they are going to be out on a cruise, so that will
move each team up 1 place for the standings//jc


Nov 1st update

One more week to go for end of season and playoffs
Some teams have already played the total of 27 games so we can have some
rather interesting results at the end of week 13//jc


Oct 24 Update:

We are finally caught up with our games.
I have been asked about playoffs.

Rules state:
No substitutes allow and no make up times, must be played on schedule or forfeit
This gives us time to get all the prep ready and done for the following week.

Dinner and prize money to be awarded

This has been a challenging season to say the least, I agree with most we have to
find a way to stop the byes. We understand when the teams are odd it will happen but
hopefully we can work on a solution so we don’t have to go through this again.
It has been what seems like a long season but still only 14 weeks.

We will be sending out notice of the next league around the end of Dec so be on the look out
for a brand new season/

I am attaching week 10- A div, for those who have completed the make up games



Oct 18th update:

We have 2 weeks left and this has been a very tough season for makeup’s and bye’s.
Take a look at each of your team standing and with the games left and any games you haven’t played your total games for the season should be 27.


Thursday, 8/15 -starting the new Season 26…

The first evening of play was Thursday. Check the scores for each group using the buttons above.

There has been a lot of interest from many new players. we are expecting the biggest field we have had which is great news for the lodge and make for a great season.
It will be a long season but each team should have 2 bye weeks but we will still finish at least a week before Thanksgiving.

Blind Draw Darts Recap- 5/11

Hi Everyone! 
Thank you to everyone that came out to play Blind Draw Darts on Thursday night!  We had 7 teams who all played very well and the competition was tight.  Benny and Jack took the final game of 3 to win it!  They won all of the games in their rounds with the exception of 1.  Mac and Tina came in second with two loses to Benny and Jack.
Benny’s number was pulled out for the jackpot round, however, he was not a winner so the jackpot is ROLLING OVER to next week’s drawing.  Don’t delay in getting your tickets for next week’s drawing for a chance to throw for the pot!
Thank you to Denise and Gina for their assistance as this made for a very smooth evening and fun was had by all!
We look forward to seeing everyone next week!  Mark Thursdays as your dart night over the summer and come out and play!  Feel free to spread the word to those who may not be on this list and guests are also welcome to participate.
Registration is at 6:45 pm with play beginning at 7 pm every Thursday.  If you have any questions, please contact David Bell directly and have a great weekend!

PLEASE, reply to only ME for additional meals for a cost of $12.00 each and your request for a chicken meal. P!ease do not tell me if you need any of this, email me, text me or give a hand written more cause I will probably be having a cocktail next time you see me!!

Again, good luck to everyone and thanks for another great season!

She (aka Shannon)



Last Week coming up for all the darters and High in and outs. Good Luck.
Those of you who don’t know your membership must be paid to play and buy drinks//jc
Great season guys looking forward to the playoff!!
We have some games in C div yet to play but this is a majority of the games played. 3 week to play and then the playoffs, Good luck to all//jc
Remember to get your dues paid so you can finish the games, April 1 the old cards will not work anymore.
I have some sad news for our darters. Jim and Jibby will have to withdraw from the rest of the dart season. We were informed yesterday by message from Shannon. Medical reason that I am not at liberty to say.
In the act of fair play your Committee of 3 JC, Phil, and Shannon have agreed to let the first half of the season thru week 7 stand as they are now. Beginning in Week 8 ( Jim and Jibby bye) and all teams that have or will
Play team 25 will have 3 wins added to their standing as a forfeit. Any All Star Points that were accumulated for teams in the 9th and 10th weeks will be removed from the stats. Jibby will retain her high in for the first game of 133 (week 6) until a higher number is recorded. They have paid all the dues required. We feel this is a fair and just solution and apologize for any inconvenience that this might have caused and thank you in advance for your support of this decision.
Team 21 is scheduled to play Jim and Jibby this week and it will be considered a forfeit.  So Board 1 and 4 will be open at the 6:30 slot if anyone would like to move into those slots.
Your Committee
Jc, Phil and Shannon
