Many of you will have seen the ASD Firecracker Shoot-Off on the ADO Tournament Calendar. Presented by Autism Speaks Darts (one of our newest members) and General Dynamics Mission Systems Inc, this fundraiser is being held in Austintown, Ohio (just west of Youngstown) on the weekend of July 5th/6th, 2019.
The tournament is being held to benefit Potential Development Schools for students with autism.
In 1970, 1 in 5000 children aged 3 years and older had autism.
In 2014, 1 in 36 children aged 3 years and older have autism, and it affects 1 in 22 boys!
So, if you are in the Youngstown area over the holiday weekend, please go along and support this fundraiser for a wonderful cause! There are a number of events over the weekend, including singles, doubles, mixed triples, and blind draws. so even if you can’t stay for the whole weekend, there is something for everyone.

This Friday’s World Masters National Finals will be the first National Finals to be run using DartConnect’s “Digital Steel System”! The system has been used with great success in a number of tournaments, including the NODOR-Fleetwood Memorial Las Vegas Open, but the system has now been developed to include round-robin play.
This means that all competing players must “check-in” with DartConnect first. Of course, this can be done on the day, but it will be much easier if you can all check-in ahead of time. At the time of writing, there are already fourteen National Finalists checked-in.
If you haven’t yet done so, you can check-in at the DartConnect website here.
Please note that you can also check-in for the Cleveland Extravaganza while you are at it!
