League Program

Spring and early Summer have certainly been busy in the J&J Ventures Amusements League Program. 29 players and guests attended Bullshooter Europe in April. The travel started with a tour of Windsor Castle during our layover in London. Then 3½ days of sightseeing in Barcelona. The week was capped off at the Bullshooter Europe tournament in Salou, Spain.

50 JJVA players attended the NOA event in Las Vegas the first of May. They were treated to food and beverages at the JJVA hospitality suite during the event. 58 JJVA players attended the Bullshooter Finals in Rosemont at the end of May.

The first week of June 55 JJVA pool players attended the VNEA tournament in Las Vegas and the JJVA hospitality suite during that event.

We just completed the 1st Annual JJVA North Player Rewards Program Finale in Rockford. Those in attendance were awarded close to $19,000.00 in total prizes and are very excited about this new program in their market. The winners of our North recruiting contest were also drawn.

We also just completed our first ever Junior Remote Doubles Dart Tournament. 26 youth players from all over our market competed in this event which is also the first of its kind to be offered in the country. This is helping kick-off the very first Junior Remote Youth/Adult League so that youth players from other markets can earn their qualifications to compete in the larger youth events.

We are now putting the finishing touches on our JJVA Player Rewards Finale scheduled for August 3-5 at the Keller Convention Center in Effingham. We anticipate 325-350 players to attend this year’s finale event.
