Have a great day!



We're happy to report that NODA had a good turn out for our seasonal Captains’ Meeting. We would like to thank all the Captains and team representatives that attended the meeting. This meeting is intended for the teams or members to make suggestions that would improve our league. We accomplished some rule changes that are intended to speed up the pace of the night, so that those members who have to get up real early can finish sooner.

Beginning immediately:

We are eliminating the old Rule 10-D.  This is the rule that allows no more than 4 consecutive games by any player.  It is now possible to schedule a player to play in more than 4 consecutive games.

            We are adding the following 2 Rules:

Rule 10-G  At both Captain's discretion -  In order to allow folks to leave early if they have to get up early the next morning, we are allowing the last game (the 4 man 01 game) to be played in game position 5 on the score sheets and then continue on with game 5 on the score sheets becoming game 6 and so forth with the balance of the games to be played in the order they are printed on the score sheets.  It should be noted that if a player exceeds the maximum games allowed per night (Rule 10-B) and he is listed in this last 4 man '01 game the penalty for this infraction will be the point value of the 4 man '01 game and will be administered as per Rule 11.

Rule 10-H  At both Captain's discretion - During the night, if the next game to be played is a Cricket game the Cricket game may be played simultaneously on a separate board if a separate board is available and as long as it does not take a chalker or statistician away from an '01 game. This will shorten the night's play time because 2 games will be played simultaneously.

The next issue that was brought up was saving the league some money on postage and printing. As a result: Beginning with the Winter League, if you want the stats mailed to you, you’ll have to request it. As for everybody else stats can be downloaded from the website or received by Email.  They will arrive in your Email as an attachment in .PDF (Adobe Acrobat) format with the Email announcing that the Stats have been published to our web site.  You can save them, print them out or just view them. If you don't have Adobe Acrobat on your computer you can download the viewer free from the web site.

The third issue that was brought was board setups not being in compliance with the rules. It was decided with a unanimous vote that Mike Williams, V.P. of C&M Darts “The Dart Guy” is now NODA’s first B.I.G. (Board Inspector General) It was also decided that the league would give Mike a gas allowance for his duty. Be sure to let your venues know that Mike will be coming in and certifying the boards and that the venues can purchase new dart boards and throw-lines from Mike. At the November meeting Mike will present a report on what he found.

Just as a reminder, all members are welcome to attend all board meetings.

Thank You
NODA Board of Directors



NODA Board Meeting           7:55pm

Those present - Lynn McClelland, Joe & Sher Martin, Ruben Flores, Sandi Quaine, Vickie Weber, MaryAnn Schick.
Rhea Thomas excused due to out of the country.

Treasurers Report - Read and accepted.

Youth League-
Money from back board still owed from ??. Vickie Weber also has a board from the league, was that board going to be given to her for running the youth league???????
New rules being added to the youth league pertaining to siblings being brought. Safety issues were being addressed during the season. The board members will receive a copy once they are re-written. The tournament and banquet went great over 40 people showed for youth league. 

Mike Abbott is still a possibility for for our ADO Rep. Mike Abbott and Jimmy Smith discussed with Ruben at banquet new ideas for the ADO qualifier.
Should we add in that players who qualify for ADO events that we pay for have to reimburse the NODA for failing to show up?? This was brought up as we had it happen.

We may possibly have some new teams joining the NODA from the Milford area.

Adding an Additional League Night - 2nd night of league was brought up as a free benefit to the players of the NODA. There was great concern from the majority of the board that this would greatly affect our Monday night attendance, therefore it was voted that at this time it needs more planning and guidelines and maybe in the future it would work.

Next meeting will be at Tommy T's on our sign up night. That is August 13th.

Meeting called @ 9:25

Respectfully Submitted,

Vickie (fill in secretary for the night since Rhea was out of the country)

Minutes from the last meeting were accepted at read.

Youth league report-Vicki Weber

The Youth League is growing!  Another 10 have joined.  The parents like the way it is running.  The plan is to have a once a month face off (no adults) during the summer.  There are currently 28 trophies in reserve.  Vicki would like to give a trophy for their luck of the draw which would be tallied on a point system.  Their season ends on 5/12/07 which will be their banquet.  The adult league has voted to give Vicki $200.- to a max of $300. For the trophies and banquet needs.  Also, the adult league will pay for the t-shirt and jacket set up fee for printing.  The orders will be open to the adult league also!

Lynn would like to see the sportsmanship award reinstated.  We could possibly put it on the nomination ballet.

Ruben reported that the ADO shoot has been rescheduled for 4/7/07 .  The board voted down a $60.00 pay out for the Lutz tourney.

Venue Acknowledgement - Some venues are not holding up to their responsibilities.  Through much discussion, it was suggested to give the venues a responsibility contract or checklist.  Tommy T would like to see better trophies for recognition for the teams.  He feels the plaques with computer generated certificates is somewhat a slap in the face and do nothing exciting for the bar owner and his establishment.

After much discussion, the idea of giving just the computer generated certificate, no wooden plaque, to the winners, would save us a sizable amount of $.  This way we could increase the trophy for the bars.  Most players do not care if they get a plaque.

Another idea is to poll the players to see if they want a plaque if they win and we could plan for it.  This should be done at the beginning of the Fall/Winter season.

The senior board will step up to bat to check the venues to see if they are following league rules and to answer any questions about how we run the league.  The date will be settled after the meeting.  

Our coordinators are: 1st div. Mary Ann Schick
                                    2nd div. Lynn McClelland
                                    3rd div   Sandi Quaine

Rhea suggested that we have at hand the chronological dates of what is happening thru out the year.  This may avoid making double dates and separating the leagues in different directions.

The meeting ended at 10pm .  

Rhea Thomas, NODA Secretary

  Youth league report-Vicki Weber
    The league is doing very well.  They now have 6 teams with more involvement upcoming.  They will be able to have 2 divisions of 5 teams each.  The youth would like shirts or jackets to promote there league.
     Also, a college scholarship of $50.00 or so was thought of.  Upon implementation, we would let it grow while we rethink the specifics of this idea.
     The banquet for the youth should be about $5.00 or $6.00 a youth.

It has been requested that the sportsmanship award be brought back to be given back at the end of the year banquet.  The board decided the go through the criteria for this award over the summer for implementation next year.

The '01 all star shoot will be on either 3/10 or 11, or 3/24 or 25 at American Legion.  All depends on availability.  The board agreed on these dates as acceptable.

The ADO would like us to host a sub-regional here.  We decided to table this idea until the ADO contacts us and we can talk to them as how to run such an event.

Ruben spoke of a fall expansion to the Highland and Troy areas.  Also Randy Whalen from 1st division will be on the board.

Venue Acknowledgement - Ruben also reported the bars want 1st and possibly 2nd place trophies/plaques displayed at their bars.  We spoke of the security of the trophies in the bars, (remembering the disappearance of the Moe Crook trophy).

The meeting ended at 9:25 with the next meeting scheduled for 3/7/07 at Tommy T's.
