Entry fee is $15 Per Person, Per Event, and includes your games
The hosting location adds $5 to the pot per entry.
A 50/50 drawing is held to add to the pot.
The Super Shot Pot is held if there is an Arachnid G3 Dartboard on site.

The tournament, like many ESD hosts, is done with an ABDraw format. The format relies on creating parity among teams by splitting the group into two pools based on ability. Teams are drawn, one player from each pool. This will prevent any Super Teams getting drawn together. Players new to the league will be placed in a pool based on whatever information is available. Other league stats, tournament performance, or general assessment of ability can be used to determine pool assignment.

Space is limited to around 48 entries for the sake of time and space. To reserve your spot, text your name and "I'm In" to Jeff MacIntosh @ 518-862-2216. No Call No Shows will be banned from future events at the Tournament Director's discretion
