Riders pool winners announced

It's time to hand out some prizes in the 2017 Riders Football Pool. Lucky winners have collected over $1,000 so far and still many more have yet to be decided. You can see results and a list of the winners here. There's a link at the top of this page as well.   (Note to zones: please send ticket stubs to Bonnie a.s.a.p!)

It's not too late to get in on the action. Twenty dollars gets you a draw in every game of the season, and the tickets will be back-paid to the start of the season. Zones all have tickets for sale.  You don't have to check your scores - winners will be paid out automatically by cheque. Good luck to all our players, and Go Riders!

Four of the best at AGM

Four Team Saskatchewan stars took all the marbles at the 2017 AGM tournament in North Battleford September 9.

Steve Kristjansson defeated Jason Skinner in the men's final and then partnered with him to win the doubles event. They're pictured right. In women's play, Bonnie Lapierre and Elaine Walker (far right) took first in doubles, then they both made the women's singles final. Bonnie repeated her win from 2016, when the same pair also won the doubles. You can see full results here. Rankings are up to date.

Order restored

At the Annual General Meeting, it was announced officially that the 2019 Nationals will be held in Saskatoon! Congratulations to that city, who will welcome the nation's darts teams in June of that year. Now the hard work of the executive and Saskatoon zone begins. President Elaine Walker asked for volunteers to help out with the big event.

During the meeting, 42 members heard reports from executive officers. Georgina Ratt was recognized in her absence for her achievement in making the World Cup team. Later a discussion was held, yet again, on that old chestnut the format for Provincial Championships.

The association asked for bids from zones to host the 2018 Youth Provincials, which are usually held the third week of February.

The SDA thanks North Battleford zone and the Legion for hosting this event.

Main Event sees biggest turnout in 15 years

The province's biggest tournament just gets more popular every year. The Saskatoon shoot, held March 31-April 2, drew 71 men and 32 women players, which is the highest figure at any Saskatchewan darts tournament since 2002 (Main Event).

Some of the NDFC's top stars came out for the BDO-ranked men's and women's singles events.

Canada's number-two-ranked Dave Cameron of Nova Scotia took the $1,000 first prize in men's, while number-seven-ranked Kim Bellay-Rousselle of BC collected a cool $500 for her win in women's.

Dave and runner-up Shaun Burt of Alberta are pictured left. That's Kim and fellow finalist Crystal Chiasson, also Alberta, to the right. 

The top Saskatchewan finishers were Steve Kristjansson of Saskatoon, joint third in men's, and Cathy Kerrigan, also Saskatoon, who partnered with Bellay-Rousselle to win women's doubles. Cathy and Kim are seen on the left.

Men's doubles went to Burt and his partner, fellow Albertan Paul Chaytor. In the mixed event, Cameron teamed up with Anna Fagan of New Brunswick to take first place.

Blind draw was won by Cameron and Saskatoon youth player Rianna December, pictured right. 

Lots of local players as well as some new faces from around the province showed up to make it a great event. A total of $9,580 in prize money was paid out, topping last year's total. Thanks go to SUDO organizers Elaine Walker and her team of volunteers for a smooth operation. See the full results
