[MMDL] Cricket Championship - New LOWER Entry Fee!


Entry fee for all cricket singles events on Nov. 14th are now $10/player (reduced from $20)

How can we do this you ask?
  The MMDL Board of Directors has discovered a surplus of cash from our new partner in Nigeria.  Dr. Mbutu Francisco Scaramanga, Nigerian Minister of Interior Finance, has discovered lost funds from previous import/export tariffs in the sales of their country's native sisal fibers used in the manufacturing of dartboards and has chosen MMDL to be their exclusive North American subsidiary. Once we transfer via Western Union a small percentage of the total funds to pay the local monetary transfer excise taxes, Dr. Scaramanga will personally visit our next tournament with a cashier's check for our commission from the transaction.  To make a long story short, we're passing this money on to you, the average dart player.

Now you have no reason not to attend this upcoming league tournament. You'll not only be supporting the MMDL, but America's international foreign relations as well.  Be a Patriot!  Come play Cricket on November 14th!  Yes this is a joke, we just wanted to be more sensitive to player's budgets during this difficult economy.

Let's have a good showing from all divisions and crown a worthy champion.

We've also been asked:  Are the Open 501 Doubles open to players who do not play MMDL?
The answer is a resounding YES, anyone from anywhere can play in the 501 doubles!  Go roll up your pennies and buy Phil Taylor a plane ticket!  But to play in the cricket singles, you must have been on an MMDL roster in either the Spring 2009 or current season.
