The 2018 League Pre-Season Captains meeting was held on 9/5/2017 at Turner Hall run by league president Kevin Zubke. All 19 teams are
returning this year, and we added 2 teams, ADVOCARE and Antonioni Well & Pump. We now have 21 teams in the league and each team will have
a bye week during the season. Another board will be purchased, and the additional board (Board #10) will be on the stage. A few teams have
changed sponsors, so please check the schedule to see all the teams and their names. The treasurer's report showed a beginning balance last
year of $456.51, and an ending balance of $272.56. The league will begin play on October 10, 2018. The Christmas party will be a regular league
night, held on December 19, 2018. Player fees remain at $10 per night, and sponsor fee remains $55 for the year. An idea to have a coin flip each
night to determine the home and away team was declined due to lack of support.
POINTS OF EMPHASIS FOR THIS YEAR
* The team sheduled to conduct the 50/50 raffle will be asked to be at Turner Hall by 6:30 that night to help set up.
* All games should begin as close to 7:30PM as possible.

DARTBALL RATING SYSTEM INFORMATION                               Posted: 10/16/2008
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.

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".
                                                                     
2013 PRE-SEASON MEETING SUMMARY                                 Posted: 9/11/2013
The 2013 League Pre-Season Captains meeting was held on 9/11/2013 at Turner Hall. All 19 teams are returning this season, and each team will
receive a bye, one week of the season. A few teams have different sponsor's and therefore have different names. Please check the schedule to
see the new team names. The League approved new stands and lights for the 2013/2014 season; not to exceed $40 per stand, and $25 per
light. The treasurers report showed a beginning balance last year of $155.51, and an ending balance of $637.00, plus about $1,800 from the
2008 State Dartball Tournament. There was discussion about an end-of-season playoff, but the idea was defeated by vote. Player fees
remain $10 per night, sponsor fee remains $55 for the year.
CHANGES FOR THIS YEAR
* The team roster was increased to a maximum of 10 players.
                                                                     
2012 PRE-SEASON MEETING SUMMARY                                 Posted: 10/15/2012
The 2012 League Pre-Season Captains meeting was held on 9/12/2012 at Turner Hall. Three new teams have joined the league; Lebby's Pizza
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
The 2011 League Pre-Season Captains meeting was held on 10/12/2011 at Turner Hall. Three teams have dropped from the league; GAF
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."
