COVID-19 PLAYER RELIEF
Our plan is to extend the end date for this season until August 31, 2020. This results in 62 extra days which is almost 9 additional weeks in the season.
We will still be starting the 20-21 season on July 1, 2020. This means that players competing in July and August in NADO events will be double dipping by earning points in both seasons.
The expected results of this plan are as follows:
- Depending on your state you may get between 2 and 3 post COVID-19 months of league play.
- Double Dipping Points: Players that play in NADO Leagues and play in MPRT’s in July & August will earn double points for every NADO league night or NADO tournament played.
- Although players will be getting double points during the relief period, they will only be paying the regular fee.
- 101 & 180 Club shirts will still be awarded in our inaugural year per NADO rules.
LOCAL FRANCHISEE FINALE EVENTS
- Each local franchisee will determine the adjustments necessary.
NADO SEASON FINALE EVENT
This event is still on track as scheduled for the first weekend in October. In fact, we expect to have a very good turnout for this event barring a second wave of COVID-19. With many state and national dart events being cancelled, this will be the only major event for many of our NADO players in 2020. Player must have 96 league games and 75 NADO points in order to compete at the NADO Season Finale. The additional weeks will allow more players to become eligible.
- TOURNAMENT EVENTS: We estimate over $155,000.00 awarded in competition events.
- TON 80 CLUB: The Ton 80 Club is expected to have a prize fund of $20,000.00.
- NADO PLAYER POINTS RACE BONUS POOLS: The total prize for this event is expected be $75,000.00.
SUMMARY: The result would be that even after COVID-19, the Inaugural NADO Season Finale would still pay an estimated total prize purse of approximately $250,000.00 or more.
*All numbers shown are estimated based on the calculations of league play continued until August 31st. These numbers may very well increase based on participation of players in leagues.
Stay safe everyone,
