The Countdown is ON.  Darters set to help citizens of Flint, Michigan.

Just 30 days remain until the Michigan Cup – a Benefit for the People of Flint. Organized by the Michigan Dartsmen’s Club – special thanks to Quoc-Huy-Ly-Huynh (aka Willy Doit), Kory Nichols and John Upham – the (team) event will be held, in Flint, Michigan, on Saturday, June 4th.

The site is the Fraternal Order of the Eagles, 2149 North Dort Highway. The doors open at 10:00 a.m. The first dart will fly promptly at 11:00 a.m. The format will be similar to the PDC World Cup with pool play followed by bracket play.Flint flier

Entries will be capped at 24 teams and the lineup is half full at this writing. Even the Action Dads, Gordon Dixon and D.J. Sayre, are going to venture to the “state up north” to give it a go.

The entry fee is $120 per team. Payments should be sent (team name and pre-registration must be received by May 13) to Doit, c/o Grand Rapids Ophthalmology, 6050 Northland Dr., Suite 100, Rockland, MI 49341. Alternatively, you can register or donate through the Michigan Dartsmen’s Club via PayPal at Michigan Dartsmen’s Club.

Full participation payout will see first place pocketing $2,000, followed by $200 for second and $100 for third and fourth. Funds raised from registration, guest attendee donations, and activities during the day will benefit the citizens of Flint via the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan.

Time is running short to register a team so act fast. If you are unable to participate or even attend do please consider donating – any amount will be appreciated – by making your check payable to the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan and sending it to Doit as indicated above.

The Michigan Cup – a Benefit for the People of Flint is going to be a terrific time, complete with great darts for an important cause. Please support the effort, either by registering before time runs out or by being as generous as you are able from afar.

Again, my sincere appreciation to the Michigan Dartsmen’s Club and everyone else involved in darts around the country that is doing what they can to help the people of Flint, Michigan.

From the Field,
