[MMDL] Spring 2016 Season - Exercise your right to throw darts...

Put your team in for the Spring 2016 season of the 
World's Largest Dart League!

The MMDL and League Sponsors Dart World & RedEye Rhino invite all teams and sponsors to sign up for the Spring 2016 Season. Team rosters and sponsor's checks must be turned in at your area's first captain's meeting held at the turn of the year 
(see meeting dates and times below), so start planning your roster now!

$$$ Once again, the league will be adding $100 to the payouts of the Luck of the Draw tournaments held after the second captains meeting in the NS, Central, Boston and SS areas.  Anyone can play in the LOD, so bring your friends and team mates for some practice and a chance at the prize money.

Don't forget about these resources on our website for sponsors and teams:
  • "How to join the MMDL" - An FAQ/Guide for new sponsors, teams and players. Includes step by step instructions on how to become a sponsor, how to submit a team, how to find a new team or new players for your current team.  Even experienced MMDL members may learn something.  To see the guide, click here.

Super A Format Update - Due to recent survey results and member petitions, the Spring 2016 season will be a trial period for Doubles 501 in Super A to be Best of 3, SIDO. Decision to continue will be made prior to Fall season.
