Royal Canadian Legion #271

Thursday Night Competitive Darts League

News 'n Stuff

News about current events in the League, about its players, upcoming events, etc.

October 05, 2020 - Ready to go!

Registration took place on Thursday and this weekend the teams were created. The website and the stats spreadsheet are ready to go for the first series of the season. On the Stats page, the Calendar and Schedule are up to date, they will evolve over the next weeks. The Schedule has team names installed.

The "Round Robins" worksheet in our stats spreadsheet has been improved for various purposes (future league, jitneys and general use). For Darts Leagues and Jitneys, we now have certified perfect balanced schedules for 5 to 20 teams. This is a serious improvement on what we had before for many bracket sizes. If you are scouring the internet as I did and have found very little that is even close to balanced, give the Thursday Statistician an email (Contacts Page) and I can send it along to you.

See you Thursday for our first league games!! Have fun!

September 28, 2020 - Update on Legion Covid Procedures

The latest Legion 271 Newsletter discusses some decisions that were made at a recent executive meeting. They include a change that affects all of us, including now the requirement to wear a mask at times. Here is an excerpt from that Newsletter:

"Along with approving the start of regular hours and Meat Draws, a motion was passed that starting September 28th masks must be worn in the Branch. So please, until you sit down at a table, wear your mask. Wear your mask when you go to the washroom or move around the Legion. Wearing masks is nothing new, and most of you are probably used to putting on a mask when entering a building. The News has been indicating that it appears that we are on the verge of a second wave of the pandemic. We must take precautions to protect our members and employees from the potential spread of the pandemic. If you don?t feel well, please stay home. Follow the directions of staff and signage. We can not take this pandemic lightly and by wearing your mask whenever you can, you are doing your part to protect yourself and others."

So bring a mask and wear it on entry! See you Thursday!

September 15, 2020 - Season Opening Dates, Protocols

Registration date is confirmed, it will be on October 1st, 2020 at 7:00PM with a brief meeting to follow once registration is complete.

Teams will then be established and regular season games will begin on October 8.

We have been provided with the protocols required by the Legion . Click the link to review these rules.

In addition to these protocols we have adopted our own version of a Participation and Compliance Agreement in order to ensure the safety of all members who wish to play darts this year. This will need to be signed in order to participate in our League this season. A correction after publication of this document has been made available, one line should read "Cross membership will be allowed with members participating in other St. Albert Legion leagues and/or the St. Albert Eagles dart league."

August 28, 2020 - 2020 / 2021 Season Opening

The TNCDL will be delayed in starting for the 2020/2021 season.

The executive is currently reviewing current healthcare risks and ensuring safe to play protocols are in place prior to starting the season.

Registration is tentatively set for October 1st with the season to begin on October 8th should protocols be established by this time.

Please let us know if you are interested in play for this year and you will be included in the email list for all communications. All updates will also be posted here.

Please see the contact page should you have any questions, and thank you very much for your understanding.

May 4, 2020 - Donation

The Thursday Night darts group has donated most of the remaining funds in our kitty ($1505) to the Legion in order to help stabilize their finances through what's going to be a tough time for them during this Covid closure.

Since the Legion will not be reopening until at least mid summer, we were not going to be able to hold our annual awards / banquet thing, and so did not need our remaining funds as much as we wanted the Legion to survive through this time.

Kudos to all our players, who unanimously voted in favor of this donation!!
