ALL rooms at the Oneida Casino at 2020 Airport Drive in Green Bay are SOLD OUT for Saturday, April 1, 2017!
Reportedly "right across the street" from the Oneida Casino is the Wingate by Wyndham Green Bay Hotel at 2065 Airport Drive, which offers a shuttle service to the Casino. A block of rooms is still available for "Wisconsin Dartball Association". The phone number is (920)617-2000. Regular room price is $199.00 per night plus add-ons. Dartball player price is $90 plus add-ons = $101.00 per night for one or two persons. If you phone to make a reservation, be specific about the date or dates you want; or they might assume you want two nights. A buffet breakfast is included but no casino perks.

Fox 6 news in Milwaukee featured dartball in a segment on Wednesday April 6th, 2016. They did an excellent job and is definitely worth watching.

Especially noteworthy in the record game were the individual performances of Terry Cuervo and Tom Brown, each player knocking 22 hits in 26 at bats. Cuervo hit 14 triples in the game while teammate La Plant had 11. For the match, Brown batted 44 for 56 for a blistering .786 average, while Cuervo finished right behind with 44 for 57 for an equally superior .772 mark! Each hit 21 triples for the 3-game set. Teammates La Plant and Peura had 17 and 10 triples, respectively. This reporter cannot say without further research if the 127-run 3-game total is also a record. If anyone can provide information in that area, please do.
Thanks, Jim Hinckle - The Dartball News
The first, a 4-0 victory by Bob & Jo's (Milwaukee) over Fireside Tap II (Milwaukee) in the Thursday night South Side Tavern League on February 4, 1982, was given to me a number of years ago by Hall-of-Famer Jerry Mathwig. At the time, The Milwaukee Journal quoted Jerry as saying, "The odds against a no-hitter in Dartball are astronomical! In 35 years, I have never even heard of one."
A couple of months ago, while reading through material provided by Bob Krey on the history of the United Methodist-Presbyterian League, I came across another no-hitter on September 9, 1986. In that game, won 1-0 by 1st West Allis Methodist (West Allis) from North Presbyterian (Shorewood), the key hit was an 8th-inning triple by our old friend Vince "Tommy" Bartlen.
Copies of the two scoresheets are attached. If anyone is aware of any other Dartball no-hitters, please copy The Dartball News.
