Everyone should get out their darts, blow off the dust, sharpen the tips and install new flights. The dart League will begin play at 7:00PM on Oct 4th this year. We will play every Thursday evening through Memorial Day weekend in the end of May. Please join us for fun and excitment and a few laughs too! Dave W.
The CPYC Dart League made its debut in January of 2005 and quickly gained a regular following of players. Starting out with two dart boards, set up on the pier side of the ballroom, with custom halogen lights and score boards to match, we were all set to play. It wasn’t unusual for 18 or more players to show up on Thursday nights. Realizing two boards where not going to be enough to get the games done in a timely fashion we added two more boards that are on temporary hooks and are put up as needed. After the success of the first season we decided to set an earlier start date to commence playing darts in future seasons. Play now starts in October and lasts through May.
All skill levels are welcome to attend these tournaments. We have a wide variety of players each week ranging from people who have never picked up a dart, all the way up to a few who are veterans of various leagues. Don’t own your own set of darts? No problem, the CPYC Dart League maintains several sets of “house” darts stored in the Pilot house. Just ask the bartender for them. Each week teams are made up at random using a “Luck of the draw” style format to pair up teams. There is no commitment to show up every week. But when you find out how much fun we have, you’ll say to yourself “maybe we should play more often than just once a week!” Don’t know the rules. Again no problem. Each week we explain the rules and strategy to newcomers.
The CPYC Dart League follows a simple format for game play. Each Thursday night at 7:00PM a sign-up sheet is presented for everyone to sign in and get a number. We charge a small fee of $3.00 which pays for upkeep of the equipment, food on some nights, and a year end banquet/party. At approximately 7:20 numbers are drawn and teams of two are paired off on a playoff style bracket sheet. Once all players are chosen play begins. The format of the playoff bracket is “Double Elimination” meaning that the winner of a game moves on and the loser moves down to the “Loss Bracket”. As the night moves on teams who suffer their second loss are eliminated. Eventually the last team standing in the loss bracket earns the right to play the undefeated team from the winning bracket in the finals. Keep winning and go all the way! We play a game called Cricket. In Cricket you shoot to score 3 darts in each of the following number fields: 20,19,18,17,16,15,Bullseye. There is a scoring component to the game as well as a strategy.
So, what are you waiting for? Come on down the club any Thursday night between October and May and join in the fun.
