    I would like to thank all of the VCDA and SBDA players that came out for this event and a special thank you to Sheri for supplying lunch for everyone. Both teams played excellent darts but in the end it was the VCDA team that emerged victorious. Needless to say our league president is happy to have the trophy back in the VCDA for now, but now is not the time to rest on our laurels, the SBDA team is already looking forward to a rematch so please be sure to log all of your mvp points for the season to ensure your spot on next seasons VCDA all star team.

We look forward to defending our trophy next season in Santa Barbara. Dates to be announced soon.

    If your name is on this list and you cannot make the match please let me know.

    Several things to think about, we will have a significant break in between the end of league and the all star match, please do whatever you can to keep playing so you are not walking into the match cold. There are tournaments at the Bench on Sunday afternoon, and a king of the hill style event on Saturdays. Sam's Saloon and Moorpark Billiards will also be having a singles league.

    The following people have made the All Star team for the spring 2008 season:

    A PDF view is available at this link

    The VCDA / SBDA All Star match was played this week, July 21, 2007 at the Bench Warmer, and once again the VCDA was able to bring home the coveted trophy. This seasons match was all the way down to the wire tied 11 to 11 and a 10 man team 2001 match broke the tie in favor of the VCDA.


    After the first 2 rounds of 5 man 1001 the teams were tied at one a piece, but as usual the SBDA team took the lead on the Singles Corkers Choice event winning 6 of the 10 legs. They extended their lead by winning 3 of the 5 legs of doubles Cricket and all but had the match in the bag. The VCDA rallied back in the doubles 501 winning 4 of the 5 matches and forcing the tie breaker.


    In the end it was Tammy Arnold who took out the 2001 game with a double 7 double 9. After the match the VCDA team voted for the MVP of the match with a tie going 4 votes to Tammy Arnold and 4 votes to Tommy Gunn honorable mentions were Joey Burt, Dwayne Pollock, and Randy Wheeler.


    I would like to thank Cheri Cignetti and the VCDA for providing the delicious BBQ, and Bob and Rosie Cobb for cooking all the food. I would also like to send out a thank you to the SBDA, as many of their All Star team drove from Santa Maria and as far out as Grover Beach to attend this season’s event.

    All Star Match Report

    Feb 10, 2007

    For those of you that did not make it to the all star match last weekend you missed some excellent darts. The end result of the match gave victory to the Santa Barbara team with a final score of 14 to 8. Highlights for the day were a Ton 80 thrown by Andy Claire of the SBDA, a Ton 60 by Walt Johnson of the VCDA and numerous Ton 33 + rounds on both sides of the fence. The biggest stumbling block for the VCDA was again the singles match play. With Ventura winning only 3 of the 10. This gave the SBDA team a nice advantage and though we fought back taking 3 of 5 in the doubles Cricket we only managed to win 1 of 5 in the doubles 501. All in all it was an excellent event as always the facility was exceptional with plenty of room and lots of delicious food and drinks for everyone. I would like to make a special thanks to our alternate team mates for making the trip on such short notice. The team was as follows:

  • Bryan Gosser
  • Randy Wheeler
  • Gary Gunn
  • Greg Gates
  • Walt Johnson
  • Dave Allen
  • Johnny O'Toole
  • Howard Anderson
  • Clem Watts
  • Jay Carson

    This marks the third season since the revival of the All Star match and I am happy to see that things have begun to run very smoothly. Thanks mostly to the combined efforts of the Board for both leagues, and especially to Phil Oneil for putting in alot of time to work out all of the details beforehand. It really makes for a relaxing day of darts when things go mostly according to plan. Though this seasons victory belongs to the SBDA we at the VCDA already have our eye's set on the next event which will be held at the Bench warmer in Ventura. Keep your eyes open for the date and time, and dont forget to mark down your MVP scores this season if you wish to make the team for our next event.

    Thank you,

    Bryan

    The VCDA vs SBDA
    "All Star Tournament"
    is a
    MEMBERS ONLY Event!

    Thank you to all who took time to come out and cheer us on for this event, but in the end the Santa Barbara team reclaimed the coveted trophy. VCDA started out with a victory in the first two 5-man games of 1001, but it was the singles corkers choice event that defined the match. Santa Barbara took that match 9-1 and from there on dominated the match. Though the loss stung us a bit I am very proud of our team in that we struggled on with terrific sportsman ship and in the end we all had a very good time. The lesson's learned from the day will be incorporated into our next event which will be held in Santa Barbara on a date yet to be determined, and we will bring home that trophy once again. Thank you to the Santa Barbara team for making the long drive out and congratulations on your well deserved victory. For those that stuck around after the event there was a blind draw double elimination tournament. The results from that event are as follows:

    1st place- Randy Wheeler and Greg Gates
    $40.00
    2nd place- Mick Farrell and Walt "Dammit" Johnson
    $20.00

    Thanks
