ADA Members from Clay County Missouri’s Side Pockets In-House league have an odd ritual at the end of each session. They have the opportunity to win the ‘Shenanigans’ Trophy. The voting takes place the week of semi-finals and the results are kept secret until the night of finals. You must show up for the player appreciation dinner that is provided on the final night of the session and they must also cheer on the two teams competing in the finals match in order to find out who the winner is.
There is not a set of guidelines or qualifications you must meet to be eligible for this award. It’s more of a friendly and light award to receive. Members in this league have been all playing together since Clay County area was added to the ADA map so it’s easy for them to keep a mental note of who the winner should be each session. It could be a matter of; the member did exceptionally well, they have enhanced their knowledge of darts, has consistently improved their skill or someone who was just lucky all session.
ADA Representative for Clay County, Shari Coleman enjoys this ritual that she has started for her area. It brings everyone together and they get to see how much she appreciates them playing in her area. “We all have been playing together for awhile so this award is a fun way of calling them out” said Shari.
This session Ashley McArthur received the most votes with 7 out of 12. Not only do all the members who played in the session attend this party but their friends and family are also welcomed to the party. Usually the Shenanigan trophy looks a little different than the one that Ashley received for 2011 ADL Summer session. Lucky for us, this session’s trophy was appropriate enough to post pictures of it on our ADA website and Facebook page. As Shari was shopping around her trophy shop she came across the witch and thought it would be perfect especially with the dart addition (we think so too).
The Shenanigan’s trophy and appreciation dinners are just a couple of the unique and special things that Shari Coleman does for her members in Clay County.
