SDDL Fall 2020 Season: *UPDATE*

All,
 
Normally the SDDL would have asked for team rosters by now, and we'd be working on Fall season schedules, but this year is far from normal.  We've been getting some inquiries about the Fall Season, so we wanted to provide an update. 
 
Based on NYS Liquor Authority guidelines (which you can find here if you're bored - https://sla.ny.gov/phase3-guidelines-for-on-premises-licenses ), restaurants and bars are still prohibited from bar games, which includes darts. The following is directly from that website, and from what I understand, all of the guidance listed there is in effect until September 5th, with the State reserving the right to extend that date:
 

Q: I am a licensee that offers on premises service in a Phase 2/3/4 region, can I have dancing or offer bar games such as darts, pool, or cornhole?

A: No, under the Department of Health interim guidance for outdoor dining and indoor dining, all persons who are not already seated (e.g., waiting for food, or waiting to be seated), should be encouraged to wait in their vehicle and/or leave the premises.  Congregating other than persons seated at tables is not permissible. Patrons should be standing only for necessary reasons such as use of restrooms, entering, and exiting. 
 
What I can share for now is that your league officers have looked at a lot of options for start dates. Right now, if we were to be able to start play anywhere from September 8th through September 29th, we could play a full 14 week season and playoffs and not impact the regular start of the Spring 2021 season. Any later than that, and we would have to push back the start of Spring darts, or look at a hybrid Fall/Spring season, possibly with extended playoffs to get more weeks in, or worst case, cancel the fall season and resume play in the Spring. At this point, nothing is set in stone until we get more guidance from NYS on when bars will "legally" be allowed to have bar games. 
 
When we do resume, we may need to require that teams sit at separate tables, limit the number of players standing, and other distancing measures.  The last thing we want to do is put sponsors in jeopardy with the state liquor authority.
 
What we would like to ask of the league at this time, is that any teams that feel they would be comfortable playing darts for a Fall Season, please have your Captain submit a preliminary roster to officers@southerndutchessdartleague.com.  We're asking that Captains submit a roster to the league by August 25th, which would put us in position, if allowed, to start Sept 8th. If we can't start then, at least we would be able to do the prep work for a later start date.
 
If anyone has any questions, concerns, or suggestions, please reach out to me, or any of the other officers.
 
Thank you, and be safe.
 
Jack

Spring 2020 - Season Suspended - COVID-19 Update

With the announcement today by the Governor of New York, imposing restrictions affecting restaurants and bars beginning at 8 pm tonight, the Southern Dutchess Dart League will be suspending league play until such time that it is possible and practical to resume. Please be advised that your league officers have been discussing a number of contingency plans for the rest of the Spring 2020 season, and we will be providing updates as appropriate. Please keep our sponsors in mind, and patronize those that can offer take out and delivery services, as the next few weeks and months will have an impact on their business. Be well and be safe, and if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me.

Thank you

Spring 2020 - Week 2 All-Stars

Hello everyone, 

Week 2 has come to a close, and a great job by everyone once again on getting your matches saved and uploaded to DartConnect properly!   Just a reminder that for Doubles matches, you need to change the points-per-leg from 1 to 2, and then back from 2 to 1 when you resume Singles matches.  
 
Congratulations to Paul Senecal for setting the High In at 140, and to John Light for setting the High Out at 108 so far.   Congratulations to Frank Anzalone for his T80, and to Joe Briccio and Nick Magro for their C9's!  Great darts folks!
 
Google is being a severe pain in my ass, so I am including a link --->   HERE      The All-star List can be found there.
 
I'm in the process of setting up a more "permanent" solution regarding email blasts.  Once I have everything setup I'll be sending this out as an email blast tomorrow hopefully.
 
Have a great weekend everyone!

Timeline for 2020 Spring Season

Hello everyone, 

I wanted to set out the timeline of events for the Spring 2020 season.  

  • Roster Submissions -  I'm accepting roster submissions from today, until Jan 14th, 2020.  Sheets can be emailed to myself ( sddlsecretary@gmail.com ).  The Roster Submission form can be found ---> HERE.  Like last season it is an editable PDF document.  All you have to do is open the pdf on your computer or phone with the Adobe Acrobat Reader or Google Chrome browser.  Fill out all the information on the pdf and save it.  If you are not on a team and want to play, let me know so that I can assist with getting you paired up with a team.  I know there are some teams out there looking for additional players so please let me know!  
  • Captain's Meeting - We'll be having our Captain's Meeting on Jan. 21st, @ The Brown Derby @ 8PM Sharp!  The Captain's Meeting is MANDATORY for all team captains / team representatives to attend.  Penalty points will be assessed to teams that don't attend.  It's important to attend this meeting, as we will be going over all the details on DartConnect for this upcoming season.  Training will be provided as well, so if your team is in need of assistance, make sure to attend.  This meeting will also include the voting for League Secretary and League President, so if you're running for either one of those positions, or have a desire to vote on those elections, please attend.   
  • Spring Season 2020 - Week 1 of the Spring 2020 season will be on Tues. January 28th.  Schedules will be distributed at the Captain's Meeting.

With next week being Thanksgiving and add to the fact that we play on Tuesday, I am going to ask that everyone try to send me your results ASAP so that I can get the stats out before Thursday.  If you are not able to, I will have to hold off reporting the season finale stats until I get everyone's sheet (which might be after Friday). 
 
Thanks folks!  Good luck next week, and have a HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
