Restarting the Spring Season
Okay dart fans, the Pandemic that cut our season short might be coming to a gradual close, though no one seems certain about that. KCMO Mayor Lucas has advised that the stay at home orders will continue to May 15th, and then be relaxed gradually, and not all at once. The Governors of both Kansas and Missouri are looking at relaxing these orders for both states sooner than that, yet still gradually.
League play was cut short after week 7, leaving us with 6 more weeks of regular play, plus tournament and awards nights. If the season had not been disrupted, we would be in the last week of regular play tonight and Thursday. IF the city follows the state, and they actually allow Bars to open soon, which does not seem likely, the earliest we could restart could be the week of May 18th.
If we were to finish the last 6 weeks, it would put the tournament on the week of June 6th.
We have options, and the Board would like everyone to think about this for a minute. I am looking to see if I can create a poll on the website, so that everyone can vote on what they think may be the best option. Suggestions so far include:
Continue were we left off and finish during the summer including the tournament
Continue were we left off and finish during the summer without the tournament
Continue the season for 2 or 3 weeks, and end the season without a tournament
End the season now and refund money to the players
This option could include a shortened summer league for anyone interested
In any of these options, any teams that were not able or interested in continuing would be refunded what was paid in.
Hopefully I will be able to get the poll started either tomorrow or Thursday. If technical issues take place, I will let you know an alternate way to provide your thoughts.
Thank you and stay safe out there!

Standings on Website
Leaguelineup is designed for multiple sports so that when you are looking at the Won and Lost columns, they are referring to match wins/losses and not individual games. To see the standings as they are reported in KC Exposures, look at the PF or Points For and PA or Points Against columns. That is what we go by for our league's standings.
Remember to place the names of both teams on the front of your envelope along with the date of the match to help us verify that all envelopes are collected each week.
Also remember that if you are not able to play on a given night that you need to contact the opposing team at least 24 hours in advance to reschedule. If you do not have contact information for the opposing team's captain, contact a member of the Board and we will provide it to you. Per league rules, contact information is kept private and not published on the website.

All Star Points
All Star points are earned on a per player basis, and not based on how the team does during the season. A running tally is kept per player by the Statistician. It is the home team’s responsibility to record any All Star points on the score sheet during each league match. It is recommended that the visiting team captain verify that all points are recorded prior to signing the score sheet at the conclusion of the match.
To qualify for All Star points, a player must score at least 100 points on a single round. Any round scoring 100 points or more will count towards your All Star point total. In addition, the following will count towards a player’s All Star point totals:
100 + Points Scored = Point Value Scored
Hat Trick (Triple Bull) = 150 Points
3 In a Bed* = Points As Scored if 100 or More
9 Dart Out = 175 Points
8 Dart Out = 200 Points
7 Dart Out = 225 Points
6 Dart Out = 250 Points
*Always record 3 In a Bed even when under 100 points as it will still earn the player a pin at the Awards Ceremonies.
Taking out a game will also earn a player All Star points.
Game of 301 = 50 Points
Game of 501 = 25 Points each player
Should a team forfeit a match, the All Star points for the game wins are split evenly between the 4 players on the winning team.
