2.    Players may use their own darts as long as they are unaltered, factory issued darts and tips. They may not exceed 18 grams in weight and 8 inches in length. Otherwise house darts will be supplied.


3.    The games run as follows: 301 open in/open out with the 5th, 10th, and 15th game being a family game of 501 and all will play on one score. Before throwing the dart to take the game out, your partnerís score must be equal to or less than the other teams combined score.


4.    A dart thrown that sticks but does not score may be manually scored.


5.    All games shall have foul lines positioned 87 ⅝Ē from the front of the machine. 96Ē horizontally from the face of the dart board. Players will be allowed to lean across the foul line with trail foot as long as the trail foot does not touch the floor before the dart scores.


6.    The dart machine is always right. If the machine isnít operating correctly, the two team captains will decide whether to play, call in a repair at 816-279-6113, or stop the game and make it up at a later date. Games that are made up must be done before the next day of play.


7.    Each of the womenís league teams will be allowed 4 regular team members and 4 subs.

9.    Once a new league is formed and started a player may switch teams with the approval from both team captains involved in the moving. (As of now 2021-2022 we are allowing anyone to sub for multiple team) Subs are considered as team members and may not play for two teams in the same league. If you add a sub you will need to manually add that personís name (first and last name) at the board and then before the next league night you will need to bring all that personís information in to ACME Music.


10.    Each team will play all other teams at least once, schedule permitting.


11.     Game time is 7:00 P.M. for all evening leagues. The time is ďrealĒ time, not ďbarĒ time. Teams will have 15 minutes to show before play begins. If you do not have all your players at the start of the game you can still start and play with your 3 players and skip the player that is missing till they arrive.


12.    Players pay a $5.00 league fee per night plus quarters. All money is put into the boards.


13.    Bars will not charge a cover charge to the league players during league play. Bars are not obligated to give free drinks to players.


14.    It is each playerís responsibility to see that the machine is displaying that playerís number prior to throwing any darts.  If a player throws when the machine is displaying an opponentís number, the opponent has the option to accept that score and allow play to continue, or reset the machine to the playerís number who originally threw on the wrong number and then continuing play.


15.    In any given turn, if a player throws 3 darts and one or two of the darts thrown do not register, the player must push the enter button before pulling the darts from the machine. If a player registers points by not pushing the enter button first, this will result in a foul and the opposing team has the following options. Accept the score and play continues and player committing the foul loses one dart on their next turn. Game is reset to score before the foul was committed and quarters will be supplied by the player who committed the foul.


16.    Ties at the end of a league for first place will be played at the end of the season. If a playoff is needed the two teams will go to a neutral bar to play the match.


17.    If there is a problem between the two teams on a play night, any member of the team has the right to stop the game and contact the league coordinator with ACME. If a protest is made it must be made within 24 hours. On an official protest the team submitting the protest must include a $50.00 fee. If the protest is granted in favor of the submitting team the $50.00 will be refunded to the team captain. If the protest is unfavorable the $50.00 will be put into the league payback fund. The reason for this fee is to cut down on the unnecessary protests.


18.    Abuse of equipment, poor sportsmanship, and unethical conduct may be grounds for forfeiture of the game, the match, and/or expulsion from the league. No foul or abusive language will be tolerated. No harassment from players or spectators will be tolerated.


19.    Any physical violence and the player or team will be expelled from the league and forfeiture of game and moneys paid.

Said person/persons will be allowed to play in future leagues if the situation reoccurs said person/persons will be permanently barred from all leagues.


20.    If a team forfeits 3 times in the league they will removed from the league and all league fees already paid will be forfeited.


21.    If a makeup match is to be rescheduled it must be okayed by both captains and will be made up before the next scheduled league night.


22.    CAPTAINS: Cell phones seem to be a problem. Please use common courtesy and if itís your turn to throw, call the person back!! This will be the captainís responsibility to keep their team in order and throwing when itís their turn!!!


23.  When leagues are cancelled it will be on KQ2 and Facebook by 2:00 PM


Finally, letís remember that the leagues are created for you, the player and are meant to be for fun and the chance to get out and have a good time.
