Congrats to the Frosted Mug Rebels, League Champions Fall 2016
They have earned the Redbeard Cup for Fall of 2016 by defeating the regular season champs, VFW Warriors. The match was hard fought and went down to the final match of 301 to decide the outcome. Our Champions pictured from Left to Right are: Larry Jenkins, Howard Riffle, Doug Himes Captain), Marshall Jenkins, and Jim Schmuck.
We are now ready to move on to the new year and our Spring 2017 Dart Season. Our Playoffs will begin on Tuesday May 2nd and conclude with our Tournament Semi's and Finals along with our banquet on Saturday May 6th at the Masontown VFW. Please plan to join us for our open event LOD after the finals conclude.
Well I'm betting none of us want to see February end, but this week it unfortunately will. As the darts stay red hot heading into March, it's time to remind everyone of the KVDA Dart Challenge and battle for the Coal Trophy, which we've earned for the first 2 years. Can we make it a 3 year streak?? We will look to finalize our roster soon, so tune up, gear up and let's throw our best at them on March 18 and retain the pseudo State Title? The Challenge Match will be held at the Masontown VFW Sat 3/18 at appx 1230pm. We will look to also have a LOD directly after the match open to all in attendance. Please plan to assist us with welcoming the Charleston folks with some delicious items from your list of favorite covered dishes. PLEASE and THANK YOU!!
OK, back to this past week's dart action. CJ Ruscin is starting to get warmed up for real. He was able to earn this week's High IN with a 130, tossed in a 171, and tied the season low with an 18 dart game. CJ nearly missed a 170 IN as his 3rd dart clipped the top wire of the triple 20 to make the 130. Ouch. His teammates tried to keep up with his efforts as Scott Williams just missed his own 170 but managed to tie for High IN with his own 130. His second dart was the near miss just below the triple wire. Ricky Williams fired a 180 en route to this week's top average with only 69 darts needed and a 21.78 avg. per dart. Larry Jenkins kept the VFW Warriors from sweeping the weekly honors by grabbing the High OUT this week with his 94. Nice job to all, keep the highlights coming.
In the Tungsten Division, the VFW Warriors stretched their lead a little over the VFW Snipers to 23 points from last week's 18. The Snipers still retain a slim 2 point lead over the Smokin Jack's Bad Monkeys who hold down the 3rd spot. As for the Wood Division, the Smokin Jack's Loose Change are still the cream of the crop with an 18 point lead over the Smokin Jill's Dart Devils after this week's action. Only 9 weeks remaining as we will hit the midpoint of our season with this week's action. Still lots of time for anyone to mount a challenge for the regular season titles.
Bring on March Madness and lets see what happens. Hopefully we beat up on 2 more Texas teams after publishing this, TCU and BAYLOR? Good Luck to the Mounties and all their faithful fans, like us.
