DARTBALL RATING SYSTEM INFORMATION                               Posted: 12/8/2021
The Dartball Rating System used by the league takes various pieces of data and puts them into a formula to develop a players individual
dartball rating. The formula averages five individual statistics of a player against a high standard of: 1) Hitting .650 on the single, 2) Hitting
.550 on the triple, 3) Hitting .600 overall, 4) A Slugging Percentage of 1.000, and 5) Averaging 1 RBI for each 2.5 at bats.
                                                                     
2021 PRE-SEASON MEETING SUMMARY                         Posted: 9/8/2021 Updated: 10/21/2021
The 2021 League Pre-Season Captains meeting was held on 9/7/2021 at Turner Hall. President Kevin Zubke called the meeting to order at 7:00PM.
The League currently has 14 teams committed to the 2021/2022 season, with two other teams (Lebbys Pizza and a NEW team) needing to
decide if they are going to play. The League will start December 15 if there are 14 teams, or December 8 if there are more than 14.*** It was decided
to not have the Christmas Party, on potentially the first night of the season, and instead have a party the last night of the season. It was also decided
to have 1 position round half way through the season. The treasurers report showed a balance of $172.06 and the State Dartball Fund has a balance
of $234.10. Player fees remain at $10 per night, and sponsor fees remains $55 for the year.
*** UPDATE: Lebbys Pizza and the potential new team will not be playing this year. Turner Hall is unavailable on 1/12/2022, therefore we
will begin play on December 8th. (See Schedule)
Information on darts was also shared. A new "Boom" dart will now be available, and be exactly like the original Apex dart. The Boom dart is available
in the normal colors for $41 per dozen, or $34 per dozen for 12 or more dozen. Other options are also available: 4 feather darts will be $2 extra per
dozen, special color darts will be $3 extra per dozen. Lastly, you can have old Apex darts re-feathered. Re-feathered darts will cost $24 per dozen.
Contact Harry Roecker (262.470.8094) for ordering..

The 2020 League Pre-Season Captains meeting was held on 9/2/2020 at Turner Hall beginning at 6:30PM. 2 teams are not returning this year:
Richter HVAC and GAF Construction. This leaves us with 14 teams. Discussion ensued around the feasibility of having a season, due to the
COVID-19 pandemic. Turner Hall's current capacity is 25%, or 125 people, therefore the league could be held, but with social distancing and masks.
3-6 teams said they would not play if required to wear a mask while shooting. It was decided that the league will wait until later to decide about playing.
The next tentative meeting is scheduled for December 16, 2020, with hopes of maybe starting the league on January 6, 2021. The treasurer's report

league nights, the set-up team should be at Turner Hall at 6:45PM to set-up the boards and lights. Player fees remain at $10 per night, and sponsor
fee remains $55 for the year. The idea of having roving subs was rejected. Subs will only be allowed to play for 1 team.

2013/2014 SEASON KICKOFFS WITH A MOMENT OF SILENCE                 Posted: 10/16/2013
Tradically, our league lost two members during the past year: Harry Buska, and Josh Burrow. Harry passed away on August 24, 2013, and
Josh passed away on September 26, 2013. Both were remembered in a moment of silence before the beginning of league play for the season.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to their families. May these words from Matthew 5:4, comfort all of us, where Jesus said, "Blessed are those
who mourn, for they shall be comforted".

has returned, along with Kraemer Cheese and Loppy's Bar (same sponsor, different team -- the "old" Loppy's Bar is now Reichert's On R).
With all of last years teams returning, the league has 19 teams. Because of the odd number of teams, each team will receive a bye, one
week of the season.
CHANGES FOR THIS YEAR
* The last place team (19th place) for each position round will receive a bye.
* If a one game playoff is necessary the final night of the season, the handicap will be recalculated prior to the final game.
                                                                     
2011 PRE-SEASON MEETING SUMMARY                                 Posted: 10/13/2011

Construction, Kathy's Buffalo Bar and Turner Bucks. One new team was added, Tietz Taxidermy, leaving the league with 16 teams.
CHANGES FOR THIS YEAR
* Handicaps will now have decimal point, and handicaps will be determined after subtracting with decimal point.
* When one team is averaging more than double the runs per game than their opponent, the opponent will only get enough handicap runs to
equal the other teams average. If the runs are "odd" then the next lower handicap runs are given.
* New teams will establish average the first night, while returning teams will use last years average runs.
                                                                     
2010 PRE-SEASON MEETING SUMMARY                                 Posted: 9/30/2010
The 2010 League Pre-Season Captains meeting was held on 9/29/2010 at Turner Hall. President Dale Zubke called the meeting to order at
at 8:05 PM, with all teams present. The two main topics discussed were handicap and playoffs.
HANDICAP
Handicap ideas ranged from only giving 75% of the total runs, to only giving as many runs to match your opponents run average. These ideas
were tabled and we will continue with the 100% handicap rule, giving one run for each run scored. Our Secretary will keep track of how many
times the outcome of a game would have changed by only giving runs to match your opponents run average.
PLAYOFFS
Having an end-of-season playoff for the top 8 teams to determine the League Champion was discussed. While we will not have a playoff this year,
there seems to be some teams that would like a playoff. Perhaps a League Champion for the most wins throughout the season, AND a Playoff
Champion for the end-of-season tournament would work in the future.
TREASURERS REPORT
We started last year with $60.01 and ended with $215.00. We also have about $1,800 in reserve from proceeds when the League hosted the
2008 Wisconsin State Dartball Tournament.

LEAGUE MORNS PASSING OF ED FORTMANN                             Posted: 9/17/2009
The 2009 pre-season meeting was held on September 16, 2009 at Turner Hall. The meeting began with a rememberance of our past League
Secretary Ed Fortmann, whose untimely death on July 1, 2009 was honored with a moment of silence. We will all miss Ed, his sense of humor,
and dartball comraidere. Ed was not only our League Secretary, but also a true friend of dartball. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family
and friends. May these words from John 11:25 comfort all of us; "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even
though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die."
