Dear ADA Members, Welcome to the 13th ADA National Championship! This is the world's only darts championship to bring together both Electronic "soft-tip" and the traditional English "steel-tip" in the same competition. This 2004 Championship is the first darts event that scores all darts electronically by coin-operated dart machines, making it an even more historic event. The ADA continues to expand throughout the country with American Dart League members competing from Maine to California! We also welcome our service men and women who are competing in the fourth Military Cup Challenge. Over the next four days Championship titles will be awarded in thirty-two different events for "bragging rights" as to who are the best American Dart League members. In addition $75,000 in prize money plus awards will be distributed to hundreds of competitors in both Neutralizer and Open categories. This National Championship is far more than a competition. It is the social event of the year that renews old friendships and develops new relationships. We are fortunate to have great relationships with our business partners as well. We thank our sponsors Michelob AmberBock, Coca-Cola, Dart World, Valley, Vortex, Laramie Screen Printing and Atlanta Darts for their support of the ADA and our sport of darts. This program contains important Championship information. Please take a moment to review and become familiar with its contents. On behalf of the ADA Championship staff, the Riviera Hotel and our contributing sponsors, good luck and good darts!

Glenn Remick President, American Darters Association

EVENT REGISTRATION

Team events and Singles events are by pre-registration only. Only members that pre-registered for the Singles events when their team registered are eligible to compete. Teams: Captains should check in at the Championship registration desk prior to the Opening Ceremonies on Thursday, July 24th. Registration for Men's & Women's Doubles and Mixed Triples should be done at the Championship Registration Center. Check the Registration hours for exact times. Only members that have competed on teams in the National Championship are eligible for the Doubles and Mixed Triples events. Membership cards are required to register for these events. The order that the members register for in the Neutralizer Doubles event determines their playing order (Player #1 & Player #2). Friday and Saturday night, Open Draw Doubles events are open to ALL ADA members. Register at the Championship Registration Center. Team members can only compete in the draw doubles event that corresponds with their team dart type.

EVENT COMPETITION

The ADA Championship software is designed to make the National Championship more effective and efficient. This system eliminates the time consuming element of writing during registration. ADA personnel simply "swipe" your ADA membership card to enter you into events. When registration closes your entry is transferred electronically to the Control Center. The software randomly places members onto the competition bracket. A dartboard is assigned and your match card is printed. The event bracket is displayed via a projector indicating the match and board assignment. In the team events, match cards will be available along a table by the bracket for each round. There will be NO initial match calls in the team event. Captains simply find their board assignments from the display, pick up the match sheet and proceed to their match. Should the opposing team not arrive within 5 minutes, take the match card to the Control Center and the Championship Director will make a 2nd call. This process will repeat after 5 min. for a 3rd call. Five minutes following the 3rd call the Championship Director may call a forfeit. Check the team event schedule for start times for additional rounds. In the remaining events, the bracket will be displayed and match cards will be available nearby. There will be NO match calls in the first rounds of these events. Members should locate their board assignments from the display, pick up their match sheets and proceed to their match immediately. Should your opponent not arrive within 5 minutes, take the match card to the Control Center where the Championship Director will make a 2nd call. This process will repeat after 5 min. for a 3rd call. Five minutes following the 3rd call, the Championship Director may call a forfeit. Throughout the additional rounds of the event, the bracket display will update with board assignments and opponents. Each match card contains bar codes, the board assignment, bracket position and payout indications. Upon completion of the match, simply circle the winner's name and return it to the Control Center. DO NOT interfere with the bar code. ADA staff will "swipe" the winner's bar code and the software advances the winners to the next round of the bracket. Once a match is ready another card is generated. To keep events "running smoothly" please return match cards immediately following the completion of the match. For Neutralizer events and selected Open events, there will also be a scorecard with the match card. _01 starting scores, points remaining and total darts MUST be recorded on the score card and returned with the match card to the Control Center at the conclusion of the match. We appreciate your cooperation in making this event a fun and enjoyable time for all members.

ADA NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP RULES

ADA Championship competition will follow the basic rules as outlined in the ADA League Rules Manual used in the American Dart League. Exceptions or additional rules are listed below.

STARTING RULES FOR ALL EVENTS

To determine who throws first for the bulls-eye in ALL events, toss a coin. The winner of the toss is the "home team" (or singles player #1) and throws first for the bulls-eye in the odd numbered games. The loser of the toss throws first for the bulls-eye in the even numbered games. In each game, the closest dart to the bulls-eye starts the game. a. Soft Tip Darts ­ count the holes to determine who is closest to the center. In the event of a tie, rethrow with the darts remaining in the board. A dart is pulled only when it hits the very center hole. b. Steel Tip Darts ­ a double bulls-eye defeats a single bulls-eye. The member throwing second can request a dart to be removed from the bulls-eye only (single or double). In the event of a tie, remove the darts and re-throw until the tie is broken, reverse throwing order.

It may not be thrown again. Once the 12 darts of the correct score feature have been used, the following rules apply: The player accepts that for darts that are scored by the machine scoring system, "THE MACHINE IS ALWAYS CORRECT". If a dart machine does not score it MAY be manually scored as listed above. a. If a member throws while the machine is displaying an opponent's number and has thrown less than three darts, the machine is advanced to the correct position by use of the "Player Change" button and the member is allowed to throw the remaining darts in their turn. The game then proceeds normally with the opponent's next turn. b. If a member throws all three darts on his opponent's number before the infraction is noticed, that member has completed his turn and the machine is advanced to the proper positions (opponent's turn) and the game proceeds normally. Should the member end the game on that turn, the opposing team wins. c. In doubles & triples play, if the member throws out of turn that member loses their turn, the machine is advanced to the opponent's position, play resumes and the team causing the infraction loses their next two (2) turns. d. In doubles play & triples play, if a member manually scores on the opponent's position, the opponent throws the number of darts the machine requires and the team causing the infraction loses their next turn. If a member manually scores on their own position for a dart not in the board, those marks/points shall stand and the team causing the infraction loses their next turn. e. In singles play, if a member manually scores points for a dart not in the board those points shall stand and the member loses their next turn.

Steel Tip Darts

Neutralizer 301 games and Open 501 games are to be played with the double bull (split bull ­ single worth 25 points & double worth 50 points) All cricket games, both Neutralizer and Open, are to be played with the double bull split bull ­ single worth 25 points & double worth 50 points)
