TGIO Ballot Information for Trophies.

If you are not able to make it to the TGIO/SIGN-UP’S  this Sunday January 25th at THE DUCK, and would like to vote, please contact me and let me know what your choice is ASAP.  Thank you, Shari

 

Over the summer ESDA board voted to eliminate a portion of trophies that have been ordered in the past. We spend between $1000 and $1400 per season on trophies. Many of which are never picked up or teams requested that they really do not want another trophy. The board stores these unwanted trophies for a period of time and then at some point donate them or reuse if possible. Unwanted trophies cost the league several hundreds of dollars a season. We thought that by limiting the amount of trophies we purchase would allow us to use the saved funds and redistribute them back into the league for higher tournament pay outs, promotional items like t- shirts. We also wanted to work on providing special tournaments such as a men’s and women’s tournament once a year. There are numerous things that can be done with extra funds to promote the league and help grow dart base in our area.
Apparently we failed to adequately inform all members of this change despite our best efforts to have all captains read and sign a form of changes at the Captain’s meeting. The information never reached the players through their captains. The change was met with some frustration for a couple of players so the board has decided to provide trophies this season and move to the new format next season.

We are asking all members to vote on which option they prefer. The options are stated below. Please put a check mark on the one you vote for.

Options:
⃝_____The following would receive some sort of physical trophy award: 180, 171, 9C, 3 double bulls, perfect game, high on, high off, singles champion and highlights champion. All bars will receive a name plate for their existing plaque or new plaque if needed for 1st place.

⃝______The following would receive some sort of physical trophy award: Each division winning 1st place only team, as well as 180, 171, 9C, 3 double bulls, perfect game, high on, high off, singles champion and highlights champion. All bars will receive a name plate for their existing plaque or new plaque if needed.
