The weather is getting nicer and that tells us that it's time to start getting our teams together for the Greater Omaha Leagues' Summer dart league session!
The Spring was a fantastic league and we hope to see many of the same faces, as well as some new faces out for the Summer leagues. The Summer league session is the final season to help increase the prize pot for the Ultimate Qualifier Series Finale event and it is already going to be higher than last year's $2,000 added event!! It's simple, the more teams sign up for leagues, the more money gets added to the finale pot. This year is already set to have higher payouts, more payout spots and more exciting twists. Can't wait to see the exact numbers.

The Eagles will be providing league shirts for each player and as always, at the end of the season there will be a celebration, tournament and all of the money raised will be donated to a charity. Last year, nearly $1,000.00 was given to the Rainbow House in Omaha, Nebraska which provides a place for families to stay while their children are in long-term care at the Children's Hospital.
Remember, the more leagues and tournaments that you participate in the more ultimate qualifier points and Promo-Nation points you will be able to earn. We have had players redeem their Promo-Nation points for HDtv's, lawn mowers, weed eaters, digital cameras, chainsaws and much, much more. That's right...you play in our leagues and earn points redeemable for thousands of prizes!!! Like always, we continue to prove that "It Pays to Play with Greater Omaha Leagues".
League signups are available right here on this website under the Leagues - Join Now tab, or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wolfpack: Next Generation Junior Dart Team Partners With Bellevue Buffalo Wild Wings For Next Fundraiser!
As many of you are already aware, Greater Omaha Leagues has a Junior team who has qualified and is trying to raise money to play in the 2015 NDA Junior Dart Championships in Bloomington, Minnesota on June 19-21st, 2015.
The team, "Wolfpack: Next Generation", consists of Trent Record (18), Kole Gray (16), Chance Taylor (14) and Dallas Winters (13). They have already had a couple fundraiser dart tournaments and a spaghetti feed to help them raise the money needed to fund the trip.
Next up is Wednesday April 15th, 2015 which is a joint effort with Buffalo Wild Wings, located in Bellevue, Nebraska titled "Eat Wings, Raise Funds". Anyone eating at the Bellevue Buffalo Wild Wings between 11am and 9pm on Wednesday April 15th, who presents the fundraiser ticket (below) will have 10% of their total bill donated to the Junior Team's fundraising efforts by BWW.
Also on Saturday April 18th, 2015 the Junior team has a bake sale scheduled for 11am-3pm at the Plattsmouth Dairy Queen. The team is urging family, friends and everyone else who supports them to participate in these fundraisers to make sure that they will hit their goal and be able to compete at the National tournament.
It's time once again for pool players to get their teams together and let the competition to begin.
Omaha players - You have Tuesday night doubles 8-ball as usual for your Spring option. This league will be open to Heartland "B" rated players only, Masters & "A" players will have to qualify for the Heartland tournament in the Summer or Fall season.
Plattsmouth players - We are offering a Sunday 1pm team 8-ball league for you. This will be a short season, but may lead to bigger and better things for pool in the Plattsmouth area. Please contact the pool players, help get teams into the league and get this thing going so we can make pool an option for more than just the winter months in Plattsmouth.
New to players: There is a new pool-specific page on Facebook for Greater Omaha Pool League players...go to Greater Omaha Pool League and like the page. The new pool league coordinator Christine will be available through that page to answer any questions and/or field suggestions or concerns you may have.
The "Next Generation" pool team sponsored by Main Street Bar in Grill in the Plattsmouth Pool League ran through the winning almost every match on their way to the League Championship.
Captain Gabe Record and team member Les Thornton finished neck and neck in the league's Most Valuable Player race, with Les Thornton narrowly edging out Record. Combine their exceptional league play with the ever-improving skills of their young teammates Nash Van Helten and Trent Record and they became a formidable opponent for any pool team.
The group walked into the season-ending tournament with a lot of confidence in their ability to once again dominate the field. That confidence proved to be well deserved as they took home the tournament championship as well, going unbeaten in match play.
When asked about his team, Captain Gabe Record said that he feels this team can compete with and defeat any team from the Plattsmouth area. He said that he hopes some of the self-proclaimed best pool players in the area come out of the woodwork to attempt to keep them from repeating next Fall.
It was only a matter of time before the National Dart Association recognized what kind of a hotbed for darts lies in the Sioux Falls, Sioux City, Omaha Tri-City region. Luckily for us, they have and decided to bring one of their continuously growing Regional Tournaments to Sioux Falls, South Dakota in November 2015.
November 6-8th, 2015 hundreds of dart players will invade the Ramkota Hotel in Sioux Falls, South Dakota for three days worth of great competition and great fun.

We are proud to have a terrific group of youth players in the league system that have qualified to play in the 2015 National Dart Association Junior Dart Championships in Bloomington, Minnesota June 19-21st, 2015. The team is "Wolfpack: Next Generation", consisting of Kole Gray, Chance Taylor, Dallas Winters & Trent Record. The tournament pits the future of the sport, youth players age 19 and under against each other to crown champions in each age and skill division.
With this great opportunity, however, comes great cost. Things like event entry fees, hotel cost, travel expenses (gas, food, etc.), team shirts. We are asking that you support this group of young, outstanding players in their endeavors. They, along with their families and their support team will be hosting several fundraising events over the course of the next few months. We ask that you please support these kids by participating in their events and helping them in their fundraising efforts.
These kids have practiced hard and excelled in competition, as well as academics and deserve to have the opportunity to partake in this once in a life time type event. Thank you for supporting these guys and we look forward to seeing you over the next few months.
If you or someone you know has a connection to a business that is willing to sponsor this team, please contact email@example.com as they will be having team shirts made up for the event with spaces available for your businesses' logo.
In a new twist, Greater Omaha Leagues has placed a bounty on the heads of its perennial Monday night Remote Doubles 501/CR EQ 'A Division' Champions. Any team that finishes the Winter 2015 Monday night league as 'A Division' league champions (dethroning Wes Babcock & Steve Garrean Jr.) will claim the bounty and earn not only $100.00 added to their payback, but also have 10,000 Promo Nation points added to each player's account.
This is all on top of the 5,000 Promo Nation point bonus for winning a Greater Omaha League and the embroidered League Champion polo and the already talked about 100% Greater Omaha payback.
Is there anyone who can claim the bounty this season or will this seemingly unstoppable duo add yet another accolade to their mounting collection? Will there be any challengers from Omaha, Plattsmouth, Fremont, Lincoln, Council Bluffs, IA, Sioux Falls, SD...the players are there...but who will accept the challenge?
Signup Deadline is January 19th, 2015
League begins January 26th, 2015
You can signup on this website under "League" and "Join Now".
It's that time of year again...time to build your teams and signup for the Winter 2015 dart leagues. There is a break in between leagues this time with some of the Fall leagues ending five weeks prior to the start of the new season. Hopefully this will give players the much needed break that will re-ignite their passion for the game.
If you are looking for a new "home" bar, you can access our list of Greater Omaha League locations right here on this website utilizing the tabs above.
There are several ways to signup for the Winter 2015 dart league:
1. Online - using the tabs above you can click "join now" and fill out the appropriate information.
2. Email - firstname.lastname@example.org with all of your information.
3. At a location - Paper versions of the signup sheets will be delivered over the next 7-10 days to all area bars, so you have the option of signing up directly at the bar as well.
Players in our dart leagues benefit from our drive to be the best "for the player" league in the area. As always, we have one of the only remaining 100% payback leagues in the region, meaning we don't keep any amount of your league dues for administration or operational costs...this means better payback for the players!
Our players also benefit from our partnership with the Promo-Nation Group, which allows players to earn points through active participation. These points can be saved or redeemed for thousands of items of merchandise in their online shopping mall. Why not play in a league where you can earn free merchandise just for playing the game you love?
Playing in the leagues will also help players earn more points in Greater Omaha Leagues' 2015 Ultimate Qualifier Series, which featured a finale event with over $2,000.00 in added prize money in 2014. Our goal is to beat that mark this year and you can help...the more teams we have in each of the leagues, the more money gets added to that finale event.
Remember the signup deadline is January 19th, 2015 and the leagues begin January 25th-29th, depending upon your selected league nights.
